Make sure you have properly installed your temperature and humidity sensor before continuing with the web configuration.


Sign in to to configure your sensor bridge. You can configure the bridge under the module configuration tab on the installations page. The alpha and beta conversion factors for each thermistor (based on the equation below) can be configured under the conversion function under the same module configuration tab.

Resistance = alpha * e(beta/Temperature(K))

On the module configuration tab, you can change how often the sensor bridge samples data from the sensor. When the Node collects data from the sensor, the sensor bridge reports the average value of the readings. 

When the bridge is connected to a Node on battery, the sampling frequency is automatically set to 'Collect when data is polled' to optimize battery life.

The data is directly available via  data forwards or the Senseware dashboard. You can also remotely reset the sensor bridge in the module information section of the system status by clicking on the 'Reset' button and selecting either 'Soft Reset' or 'Hard Reset.'  A soft reset will restart the sensor and a hard reset will erase the saved configuration.
