Confirming Operation

After the station is powered, wait at least 30s then check to make sure it has acquired GPS and 4G signal:

  • The 4G dongle will show a constant blue LED
  • The GPS module will flash red approx once every 10s. (Rapid flashing means it has not locked on yet)

After signal is acquired, the station will automatically establish a connection to the project server and start publishing telemetry data.

Checking the project Thingsboard dashboard is the simplest way to confirm that both SEED and auxiliary telemetry are active. Set the time window to ~10 minutes and look for new data being plotted under all sections, but particularly geophone data and battery voltage data. (NB, the station may need to be manually added to thingsboard if it has never been active before.)
