Understanding the Node Chart - Setup Checklist
The purpose of the Setup Checklist is to help you go through the steps necessary to fully setup your system. It will appear when you first start up the WatchMon Toolkit. There are 7 items that need to be completed for the setup to be complete.
Prior to this you should have installed a version of the WatchMon Toolkit software and virtual USB driver on a compatible system. The process should be done in the check list order.
Step 1 Connect
This step connects you to a particular WatchMon and all details below refer to the one chosen. Note that to change settings you need to connect WatchMon to computer via USB rather than via wifi
(Troubleshooting - if USB does not work try USB Legacy. If your WatchMon shows up then Firmware needs updating as it is out of sync)
If wishing to connect via Wifi later this is where you go to change to that. Note that wifi is read only.
Step 2 Software
This step checks that you have the most up to date software. It is green to show that you have a version of the software installed correctly. If you hover your curser over the option it will show the current status.
Step 3 Firmware
Firmware should always be updated after a software update or a software downgrade
Step 4 Wizard Setup
The wizard gives you a simple way of telling the WatchMon what it has to watch. Based on your results many of the values in the system are pre-populated.
Step 5 Network Test
At this step you connect your batteries, SOC% sensor etc as per what you identified in the wizard then run the Network Test to confirm connection, This step will fail for example if you have said you have 14 cell monitors and have a different number attached.
Step 6 Device Sync
This step rolls all the setup and targets and limits from the wizard setup to all the cell monitors.
Step 7 Bypass Test
The WatchMon will test every CellMon’s balancing resistors, one by one for a few seconds.
