Hi @vnsuper,

 

You can connect a new MindConnect Nano with the "IoT Data Modeler". After opening the App you can add a new Asset and then you have to choose the MC-Nano. After this you can configure your MC-Nano.

Hi Steffen1, 

 

I setup the MindConnect Nano device. After plug USB with configuration information exported from IoT Data Modeler into device. After a while, the device has two lighting leds:  RUN/STOP/L1 orange,  PC ON/WD is green. I check in asset in the web, I see Onboarded column is green but Online column is still gray. I also see the log file (generated in USB) I see some lines.

Is my device connected properly? Thanks.

Good morning, @vnsuper,

 

Do you have more informations?

 

Have you collected the Logs from your MC-Nano with the "ConBox_Commands.json" File?

 

After collecting the Logs we can take a deeper look whats going wrong.

Hi Steffen1, 

 

I'm also setting another MindConnect IoT2040. But I encounter a problem so I would like to add question here too. When I power up the device, I see 3 lighting LED s

+ PWD: green

+ USB: green

+ USER: red (no blinking)

 

According to document that mean there's a problem with firmware in device. However, I just use this device for the first time, I have yet update any thing on the device yet. Please help me a solution for fixing the device issue. 

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @vnsuper,

 

you can update your MindConnect IoT2040 with the newest Firmware. When the Firmeware is to old, the Device isn't able to update the Firmeware automatically, so you have to do it per USB-Stick.

 

You can download it here in the SIOS: MindConnect_IoT2040_FW

 

1. Download the fw.zip file

2. Extract files

3. Copy the fw.tar file to an empty USB-Stick

4. But the USB-Stick to the MindConnect IoT2040

5. Wait a few minutes. The device will reboot a few times.

6. Check the Logfiles on the USB-Stick. In one of the Files you will see, that the firemware was updatet or that something went wrong.

7. After successfully updating the Firmeware your device will be ready for the onboarding process.

8. Make the Configuration in the IoT Data Modeler and try to onboard your MindConnect IoT2040

 

Let me know if that works.

 

See you,

Steffen1

Hi Steffen1. Thanks for your information. I'll try with the device next week when I come to office.

I follow your direction, when I plug USB into IoT2040, it restart after 30s. After waiting for 15 mins, I notice 3 lighting LED is still the same as before.

 

I decide to go ahead with reload configuration exported from Cloud. When I plug USB with data model configuration, I see the device can restart automatically now. After waiting for 15 min, however, the device is still not onboarded in Mindsphere cloud. The lighting leds are the same behavior as before.

Please help to check.
