Manage Devices

Use the Discover Devices feature to identify DL data loggers using USB or serial connection cable, or a non-Vaisala single or multi-port Ethernet device connector. Device discovery can also be used if any DL devices connected using vNet devices are not detected by the viewLinc Aware function. Wireless devices (RFL100 series data loggers or HMT140 series transmitters) are detected automatically.

  1. In Sites Manager select the Hosts and Devices tab.
  2. On the Hosts and Devices tree, select the host machine to which the device is connected, then select Configure > Discover Devices (or right-click and select Discover Devices).

This process may take several minutes, depending on the number of devices and/or components in your network.
