Congratulations on purchasing the Orbit X! The Orbit X will be a revolution for hazardous areas. We aim to change how users perform both inspection, maintenance, documentation, troubleshooting and e-learning sessions in the field. The Orbit X will disrupt the mobile telepresence market, video streaming as well as surveillance/CCTV operations in hazardous areas. The Orbit X is both smart and versatile, allowing for new ways of working. This is just the beginning! This guide will help you become familiar with the Orbit X.
Modes of Operation
The Orbit X has a few “modes of operation” or “features” you might also call them.
When you open the package you have the accessories required to get started. The battery is already charged, so sit down with your computer or android smartphone to get started!
Making the Orbit X Cloud Managed
The Orbit X does not have a screen or a keyboard, therefore we needed to invent some smart solutions for it to be configured remotely. The Orbit X requires a Wi-Fi connection in order to be managed through Collaboration X. One license of Collaboration X is included with your purchase. To get the Orbit X connected to the internet for the first time you need to either use the “Orbit X” app available on BARTEC PIXAVI Impact X, Gravity X or available for any Android device from Google Play (Android 4.4 or newer). You can also configure the Orbit X directly from Collaboration X running in your browser. For initial setup you can either
- Use Orbit X setup app and follow on screen instructions on your smartphone
- Use Collaboration X (available in any browser)
NB! To use the Orbit X app you need the latest Lollipop (or newer) software on your Orbit X. If your device was shipped after August 2016, this is already installed, if not, please update your Orbit X. More info here.
Once the Orbit X initial setup is done and the Orbit X is online (Wi-Fi LED blinking green), you can send policies to the devices from Collaboration X, and manage it from the cloud! NB! One Collaboration X license is included with your Orbit X purchase.
You create a Wi-Fi network in Collaboration X under “Policy” and then “New Policy” and “Wi-Fi Network”. The initial setup (option 2) is easiest for “normal” (WPA PSK or WEP) networks where you have an SSID and password. If you do not have “normal” networks, and only have enterprise networks (WPA EAP networks with user name, identity and certificates) you need to use option 1 for initial pairing. From Orbit X setup app you can send the Wi-Fi Settings to Orbit X, and get it online for the first time. Below, you can find the screenshots from Collaboration X. For instructions using the Orbit X setup app, have a look in the Orbit X Quick Guide.
