Troubleshooting Radio Communications

If there are intermittent communication problems when connecting via radio, there may be another network in the area causing interference. To help remove the interference, use ClosedDevice Configuration UtilitySoftware tool used to set up data loggers and peripherals, and to configure PakBus settings before those devices are deployed in the field and/or added to networks. to change the Network ID and RF Hop Sequence in all RF407, RF412, and RF422 radios within a network (standalone or included in a data logger) to another value. Each of these settings must have the same value in all radios and dataloggers within a network. For example, the Network ID in all devices could be set to 1726, and the RF Hop Sequence in all devices could be set to 1. The Network ID can be any number between 0 and 32767. The RF Hop Sequence can be any number between 0 and 7 in an RF407 or RF412 network; it can be any number between 0 and 9 in an RF422 network.
