Trying to connect with Wi-Fi
If this continue for more than two (2) minutes, check to make sure your SSID and password are correct
You can also see these steps in the Operation and Setup Manual here.
The maximum size is 32 GB (SDHC); A 16 GB SD card is provided. Please note the SD card has to be formatted to FAT or FAT32 – no other formats are accepted. And, you cannot install an unformatted SD card.
If the SD card fills up, data will no longer be backed up. At this point, if the BlueSky Air Quality Monitor is connected to TSI Link Solutions, it is only being stored on TSI Link Solutions. However, please note that the SD card can store many years’ worth of data, even logging at 1 minute intervals.
The data for that same time period, if the BlueSky Air Quality Monitor is connected to TSI Link Solutions, is stored on TSI Link Solutions and is available for download.
If you don’t move the switch to the right after setting up the Wi-Fi, the device will not connect to TSI Link Solutions. The device firmware will buffer data up to one week at the default logging interval of 15 minutes. After the device changed from the Wi-Fi setup mode to cloud mode (flipping the switch), the firmware will push any buffered data to TSI Link Solutions. Please note that if the BlueSky air Quality Monitor remains in Wi-Fi setup mode for over a week (and therefore note sending data to the cloud for over a week), TSI Link Solutions will start missing data.
No, at this time, AC power must be available.
It is possible for small creatures to enter the BlueSky monitor through the bottom screen and some of the smaller openings on the bottom, but the monitor’s design should keep most creatures out of the unit. The screen can be removed for cleaning, and you can use compressed air dusters for electronics to clean the inside of the device and board. Please be careful to not spray into the PM sensor.
No, the settings remain embedded on the device memory and it will reconnect to TSI Link Solutions when power is reestablished.
Flow is controlled to ̴0.1 LPM.
Exposing your BlueSky monitor to concentrations greater than 500 ug/m3 is not a problem. Accuracy will diminish above 500 ug/m3, but you will not damage the laser. It should be noted higher concentrations will also reduce the overall lifespan of the instrument, and varies by how long the monitor is subjected to the high concentration.
The operating temperature for a BlueSky monitor is -10°C to 60°C (14°F to 140°F). As long as you are operating the device within the operational temperature, damage will not occur. Storage temperature is -40 to 70°C (-40 to 158°F). In climates that often experience temperatures below -10°C (14°F), PM measurements may be affected. You may also see a change in correlation performance when comparing to another type of aerosol monitor. Permanent damage should not occur, unless an extreme prolonged exposure is experienced (less than -20°C).
No the USB connector cannot be used to download data or configure the device, configuration is done via TSI Link Solutions. The USB connector is only used to provide power to the device.
BlueSky monitor power consumption is 2.5 watts.
First, confirm the power supply is working properly by disconnecting the BlueSky monitor and plugging it into another power supply that is working properly. If the status LED light turns on, then you know the other power supply is not working.
If you have another BlueSky monitor available, you can also try to plug that monitor into the original power supply to see if the status LED light will turn on.
If you believe the power supply has failed, a replacement can be ordered (North America-style power supply, European-style power supply, UK-style power supply). If you believe the BlueSky monitor has failed, a replacement can be purchased or a new monitor can be provided if it is still under warranty. The BlueSky monitor’s warranty is 90 days from shipment.
A power cycle/loss of power will reset the device. To do this, unplug the power supply from the USB connection on the monitor, wait 60 seconds, and plug it back in to reestablish power.
No, there is not a remote way to turn off your monitor. The device must be powered down by removing/unplugging the USB power cable.
Yes. To stop data from reporting to TSI Link Solutions, do not configure the Wi-Fi network – if a Wi-Fi network hasn’t been configured, the monitor cannot connect to TSI Link Solutions. To stop data from logging onto an SD card, simply remove the SD card from the monitor.
No, mass concentration data is reported in ug/m3, temperature in °C, and humidity as a percentage (%RH).
If the device is registered on TSI Link Solutions, then the serial number is also stored there – log into TSI Link Solutions and you can find your serial number. If registration has not been completed yet, you will either have to go to the physical device to obtain the BlueSky monitor serial number or you will need to refer to the Quick Start Guide that came with your device.
It is not possible to put BlueSky monitors to sleep when higher concentrations are expected. The BlueSky monitor will continue to provide mass concentrations up to roughly 10 mg/m3. Overall life expectancy may decrease, but should not be affected greatly as long as the higher concentrations dissipate within a few days.
Your BlueSky monitor sends Device and Sensor alert status to TSI Link Solutions as numbers:
0 (device rebooted)
1 (SDCARD write failed)
2 (cloud disconnected)
3 (case sensor error)
4 (PM sensor error)
5 (realtime clock battery low)
6 (timestamp stale)
7 (timestamp time invalid)
1 (cleaning occurred)
2 (initialization error)
3 (internal error)
5 (communication error)
6 (checksum error)
7 (data error)
8 (fan error)
If your TSI Link Solutions account receives a numbered alert, an icon will appear on the monitor card in the upper right corner (see screenshot below, with the icon in red).
TSI Link Solutions will alert you if a monitor has been disconnected from TSI Link Solutions for over 24 hours. The monitor’s pin in TSI Link Solutions will be grayed out. Once you click on the pin, you will be able to see an error message that will remain until the monitor is back online.
