The Omnicomm Optim, Profi, and Profi Wi-Fi terminals support the connection of up to 8 temperature sensors.
On the “Settings” tab select section “Auxiliary equipment” from the list.
The “Temperature sensors” displays the temperature readings from the sensors, connected via 1-Wire interface.
Set up the temperature sensors. Choose the set up option:
- set up of the 1-Wire interface. Press the “Set up the temperature sensors” button
- set up via the universal input. Press the “Set up the temperature sensors (UI)” button
Set up of the 1-wire interface:
“Name” – input the name of the temperature sensor.
“Value” – displays the readings from the sensor.
“ID” – select the ID number of the temperature sensor.
Set up via the universal input:
“Transmit the readings of the 1-Wire sensor instead of UI” – select the number of the universal input for displaying the temperature readings in Omnicomm Online.
Connect the temperature sensors to Omnicomm terminals according to the diagram:
