Vital Recorder Zero User Manual
This document will guide you to set up the Vital Recorder Zero for collecting the biosignal data from the patient monitor.
Connect a USB WiFi adapter (dongle) to the USB port on the power side of the VitalRecorder (VR). Then, connect the power cable to VR for booting. When booting for the first time, it takes about 2 minutes, and the red light turns on when booting is complete.
In order to access the admin page for VR, you need to connect the VR to the smartphone, PC, or tablet via wired ethernet card. For this, you need to prepare a USB wired ethernet adapter for VR and another wired ethernet adapter for a PC (it can be a tablet PC or a smartphone). Two wired ethernet adapters can be connected using a plain ethernet LAN cable.
After being physically connected, enter the admin page address (192.168.137.2) in the address bar in the web browser on the PC. The initial password is “2017”. You can configure VR settings and network settings through this admin page.
VR name (VR code)
The default VR name is an 8-digit serial number. It is the same as the VR code used for registering the VR in VitalDB. Change the VR name to something you can identify with.
This specifies the methods to create vital files automatically without the user's involvement.
- by hour : A vital file is created every hour. For use in the intensive care unit, we recommend selecting by hour.
- by case : Automatically create vital files based on the values of the SpO2 and HR parameters. This option is usually for the operation room. if there is no SpO2 or HR value, vital files will not be created.
When all settings are complete, click the Apply button. Your settings will be saved and VR will restart.
If a usb WiFi adapter (dongle) is connected, it will display “usb” next to Wireless.
(If not connected, it will display “on-board”.)
Enter SSID and password of the Wifi network to which the VR will be connected.
- For public AP, leave the Pass input field blank.
- For using a hidden network, check Hidden Wifi.
- For using WPA enterprise, enter User, SSID and Pass.
- For using a static IP, enter the IP, Netmask, and Gateway in the advanced settings menu.
When all settings are complete, click the Apply button to save the settings. Then, the device reboots. Please wait until the blue light flashes that indicates the VR is connected to the network successfully.
