Quick Start Guide

Wiring

Reach the device

Each device has a serial number:

  • cy-vp4-14-35
  • cy-rcp-18-4
  • cy-rio-15-151
  • cy-nio-22-63

Let's take cy-rcp-18-4 the format means:

  • cy-rcp is the device type, here a rcp
  • 18 is the device batch ID (production)
  • 4 is the unique number in this batch

You need the full serial cy-rcp-18-4 to identify completely a device.

Based on that, you can now reach your device by following this guide.

All the configuration is done in a web UI, no need to install any software.
