The TYNESS-FIX-AIMANT kit contains 2 round magnets, two solid metal washers and 2 fixing bolts (Torx T8 imprint).
It makes it possible to fix the TYNESS on every on any magnetic surface or, for the non-magnetic surfaces, on the washers provided. In this specific case, the washers must be fixed to the surface (for example, using a double-sided adhesive).
- Remove the electronic circuit from the Tyness case
- Remove the solid washers from the magnet by sliding them sideways
- Position the magnets in the slots provided for this purpose on the back of the case. The face containing the entry cone must be visible.
- Insert the screw into the magnet and screw in the nut
- To use the metal washers, place them on the magnets, add the adhesive on them and position the Tyness case. Once the adhesive holds, remove the case.
DIN rail mounting
The TYNESS-FIX-RAIL contains 2 parts: a base and a movable and adjustable strip.
It is used to fix the Tyness horizontally or vertically on a DIN rail. On horizontal position, it allows to position the Tyness at two heights per position.
The Tyness can be removed from the DIN rail by manipulating the movable strip with a classic screw-driver.
The TYNESS-FIX-RAIL comes with 2 mounting screws
- Remove the electronic circuit from the Tyness case
- Place the support in the chosen position (horizontal or vertical) and at the required height
- If needed, adjust the strip height
- Screw the 2 screws from inside the case.
Strip setting :
Depending on the positioning of the FIX-RAIL, the strip must be adjusted to remain accessible.
If the upper part of the strip protrudes from the TYNESS (for example with a TYNESS in a low position), it can be cut off using cutting pliers.
The Tyness can be powered using one several different modes:
– External power using a power pack (see TYNESS-ALIM-BLOC-5V) or a DIN rail power supply (see ALIM-RAIL-5V)
– Option : External case containing a 3.6V lithium battery operation, refer to the battery icon next to the extension boards in the product catalog. (see TYNESS-OPT-PACK-PILE)
Warning : not all extension boards are compatible with the use of a battery as power supply. Refer to each extension board documentation.

The TYNESS-FIX-RAIL periodically sends its sensor measurements via a LoRaWAN™ radio link.
In order to configure the Tyness sensor on a LoRaWAN™ network, you must have the unique EUID identification code, indicated on each product, as well as the two AppEUI and AppKey codes supplied with the sensors at the time they were ordered.
You can also find all the keys and identifiers using the TyNess configuration software. See “CONFIGURATION SOFTWARE”.
Various communication parameters can also be modified using the configuration software, such as ADR validation, or the periodic reJOIN procedure.
Configuration software, LoRaWAN™ section :
The Tyness sensor transmits its data in raw format on different public and private LoRaWAN™ networks.
The following section explains how to decode these received frames (PayLoad)
The periodic frames contain the data measured by the Tyness sensor.
Example of a periodic transmitted frame (HEXADECIMAL):
Explanation of the frame structure :
Periodic frames (continued)
The frame described above can also be transmitted in 2 batches, if the channels are not synchronized.
This gives the following frames:
About the Object Type byte:
The object Type byte indicates the type of measurement performed by the sensor (see following table). It also contains 2 bits providing additional information:
Table of Object Type bytes:
Sample frame with channels and errors
The following frame comes from a TyNess with a rogowski card on socket 0 and a PT100 card on socket 1, and only one PT100 probe connected on channel 2:
The status frames contain additional information about the sensors (battery level, firmware version, etc.)
Example of a transmitted (HEXADECIMAL) status frame:
Explanation of the frame structure:
Every Tyness extension board has its own data sheet. To consult the documentation, click on the image which will send you back to the documentation of this one.
The TYNESS-OPT-ANA board is an extension board with 4 analogue inputs configurable in 0-10V and 4-20 mA with common ground. It reads information from any sensor with 0-10V and / or 4-20 mA analog output
Example : a PLC, a variable speed drive, a flow meter, etc.
M-BUS extension board to pick up M-Bus field sensors (M-Bus slaves) such as calorie, water, electrical energy meters…
The MODBUS extension board has a ModBus interface for communicating in master or slave mode.
This extension board has 2 digital inputs allowing the data of all types of meters to be traced with a dry contact type pulse output.
These extension boards make it possible to detect the 12-24V AC or DC voltage: pulse counting, state detection, time counting, etc.
This extension board has 2 optical sensor inputs capable of counting light pulses.
Use case: interfacing with an electricity meter using its blinking LED.
- Download the Tyness Configurator software available by following this link: http://www.ewattch.com/english-documentation/.
- Run the program (no installation is necessary, available on PC with Windows 8 or later, Apple and Linux)

- Immediately click the “Connect” button
Note : You have 30 seconds to connect the software after powering on the Tyness. If you have waited too long, disconnect and reconnect the cable in order to restart the usb connection.
Once connected to the Tyness, the software automatically displays different information:
- The version of the internal software. In our example: V1.18
- Additional cards detected : Rogowski and PT100
- Type of communication configured : LoRaWAN™
The Tyness is a product that always evolving, because we regularly add new features and additional cards.
To update your product, simply :
- Download the latest firmware version from the Tyness section on the Ewattch website
- Click the “Load” button to select the previously downloaded file.
- Validate the update by clicking on the “Upgrade” button
- A progress bar indicates the status, and a window indicates that the update has been completed successfully.
There are 3 modes of communication currently available:
- LoRaWAN™ : LoRaWAN™ communication on private or managed networks.
- LoRa® : Communicate with an EWATTCH Toolbox or with a Tyness configured in GPRS + LoRa®
- GPRS : Transmits data in GPRS directly to a server
- GPRS + LoRa® : Same, and also can concentrate data from other LoRa® sensors located in its range.
GPRS and GPRS+LoRa®
To configure the chosen communication mode, select one of the modes and click on the corresponding “write” button.
If you choose “GPRS” or “GPRS+LoRa®” modes, you must indicates the settings of your carrier’s network and your SIM card
– PIN code: “0000” by default
– APN : which is the name of the network acmes point, here “orange.fr”
– User / Password : which are the identifiers that allow access to the network.
On the TYNESS :
The LED light on the GPRS module gives information on the status of the communication
SIM card insertion:
In its GPRS version, the TYNESS is equipped with a micro SIM card reader (3FF).
The card should be inserted with the beveled corner at the bottom right.
Insert it to the bottom until you hear a slight “click”. When the card is correctly inserted, the card presence indicator is vertical (see photo below).
CAUTION : DO NOT INSERT THE SIM CARD INTO THE TYNESS BEFORE CONFIGURING THE CORRECT PIN CODE!
If you choose the LoRaWAN™ communication mode, you have access to different keys and configurable options, allowing you to set up your TyNess:
- APP EUI : This unique application identifier allows the objects to be grouped together. This 64-bit address allows the peripherals to be classified by application
- APP KEY : This is a secret key shared between the peripheral and the network, which is used to create the session keys.
- DEV EUI : This is a factory programmed identifier which makes each object unique.
- Messages confirmed : parameter allowing to ask the network for a reception of the frames sent by the sensor confirmation. Improves the quality of exchanges.
Please note: This is an extremely energy and bandwidth consuming function. Not to be used systematically.
- Adr enabled : ADR (Adaptive Data Rate) mode activated or not. This mode allows the network to automatically adapt the communication speed and the signal strength of the sensor. If this parameter is not activated, the sensor exchanges in SF12 only.
- Periodic rejoin activated : When activated, the Tyness will launch a network join procedure every week. If not activated, once a network is joined no further join procedure are made.
- Compliance test enabled : Do not activate. Only to be used for network testing.
Network connection process
- Our products try to connect to the network when they start.
- If it does not work, they will retry every 24 hours until it works.
Periodique network reconnection
- Our products restart a network connection procedure every 7 days.
These reconnections improve security.
Indeed, reconnection to the network renews the encryption keys.
With the Tyness, this functionality can be activated or deactivated using the “periodic rejoin” option of the configuration software.
This key is only used with GPRS communication to secure exchange with the server.
With EwattchCloud, the user must copy this key during configuration of a Tyness.
In LoRa® (LoRa®-Ewattch) mode, the Tyness has multiple communication channels to choose from:
- 2 fast channels. Allowing to send data more frequently but over shorter distances.
- 5 long range channels. Allowing to send data over greater distances but less frequently.
Channel must be selected in LoRa and LoRa + GPRS mode.
After selecting the channel, click on the write button to save your configuration.
In order for a LoRa-Ewattch Sensor and a LoRa-Ewattch gateway to communicate, the 2 products must be configured to use the same channel.
