1.1.Create a Workspace

A “Branch”, like in a tree, is one part of you project, that must have, at least, one Quantum Node, but can have several Quantum Nodes, when these are connected using DomatiCAN Bus.

To create a new Branch, open your Domatica Tool and create a new Branch, using the “Add” button above the “Branch” area.

Then, name the Branch and add the modules for this Branch by clicking the “Add” button and inserting the Quantum Node serial number.

TOOL_CREATE_WORKSPACE

Click “OK” twice and you have created your Branch.

1.2.Network Configuration

You can change all network configurations in your Quantum Node like DHCP, IP Address, Netmask, Default Gateway, Server IP Address, ports, etc.

To do that, edit your Branch by clicking twice in the branch or selecting the branch and clicking the “Edit” button (Pencil). Then, to edit, Select Quantum Node serial number and click the “Edit” button (Pencil).

NETWORK CONFIGURATIONS

Click on “Discover” button to find your Quantum Node and its network configurations. When the Quantum Node is found, the fields will be completed automatically. Now you can change all the settings and to save them to the Quantum Node, click “Set” button. Click “OK” to exit the Network Configurations.

 

GPRS Communications

In this window you can also change the GPRS settings, when available in your hardware.

To do that, activate GPRS communications by selecting the GPRS box and insert the APN , User and Password. You can get this information from your Service Provider or by searching the web for the APN list. (Example: http://www.hw-group.com/products/HWg-Ares/HWg-Ares_GSM_APN_en.html).

 

IMPORTANT:

FOR THE GPRS SETTINGS TO TAKE ACTION YOU HAVE TO DEPLOY ALL THE CONFIGURATION AND REBOOT THE QUANTUM NODE.

1.3.Services

For the DQN to send its data, user must define the IP address or DNS address and port of the server who will receive the communications.

For that, in the Configuration Tool we have the “Services” where you can configure up to 3 services for the DQN to communicate.

Select the Branch and click edit button (or click twice in the branch) and next to the “Network Configuration” button you have the “Services” button.

Then you will enter  new window called “Services Setup” where you can set the DQC Service as follows:

Activate the Service by clicking the check box and fill the fields available with the following information:

Service Name: Domatica Quantum Cloud

Service Host Address: dqc.domaticasolutions.com

Port: 7701

Initial Cipher: [leave blank]

Retry Interval: 30

1.5.Add KNX Systems

With the Configuration Tool, you will be able to control and monitor KNX Systems using Quantum Node, by adding them to the Configuration Tool. This is made based on ETS configuration files .esf and .knxproj.

 

First you must choose the “KNX Hints File” language. This file will help to assign the functions to the group addresses. You must choose the language in wich the ETS programming was made.

tool_knx_hints_language

Go to Settings tab, “KNX Hints File” and chose a language from the list. This language is the language used in your ETS Programming file.

Select the Branch and add a new device by clicking the “Add” button on the right side of the Tool.

tool_add_knx

Then, on “KNX”, select what version of ETS Project you want to import and click “Add” button.

In the next window, click on “Import”, navigate to the wanted ETS project file and click open.

tool_import_knxproj

Validate Group Address Function, Description, Data Size, Flags and Enable or Disable group addresses, and click “Ok”.

tool_knx_groups

If you have only one KNX/IP Interface in your network, select “Auto IP Interface” and the system will find it and connect automatically, if you have more than one, insert its IP Address and port correctly.

Click “Next” and you you will see a list of all the software devices created.

tool_knx_devices

Check if everything is according to your needs and click “OK” to finish adding KNX System.

1.11.Deploy

When you finish adding devices, the newly modified configuration must be sent to the modules.

To do this select the modified branch, and then click on the ‘Deploy’ button.

clean_tool_deploy_1

After the ‘Deploy’ button has been clicked, you must choose if you are deploying using a “Local Network” (PC and Quantum Node on the same local network and same IP range), or a “Remote Location” (deploying through the web or to different IP range network).

clean_tool_deploy_2After this has been done, in the “Server” settings, you must select “Keep current configuration” if you have made changes to the default network configuration, or “Set default configuration” to use default settings.

Also, if you are not using a software that updates the date and time of the Quantum Node, you must synchronize UTC by selecting from the list, the correct time zone.

You also have a “Project Resume” where you can see your branch information such as:

  • Total number of modules;
  • Modules Serial numbers;
  • Modbus Registers used;
  • KNX Group Addresses used;
  • HDL/BusPro Registers used;
  • Inputs and Outputs used;
  • Total number of software Tags/Devices
