The Vector Dock Configuration Tool has two primary functions:
- Provides basic feedback on the status of the dock.
- Allows you to easily change the Dock Type (allowing you to download two docks worth of devices at once).
- To begin using the Vector Dock Configuration tool, connect a Vector Dock to your PC and power on the Dock.
- Once the dock has powered on, enter the below URL into your browser and hit enter
- If the dock is not connected properly, the webpage will fail to load. Check your connection and try again.
NOTE: Only one dock can be connected and configured at one time. Please also remove any receivers.
*The first time you access this page with a dock, you may be shown a security warning (see below). This is expected. Select "Advanced", then choose to proceed. Once done, this will take you through to the config tool and the default landing page - the Status window.
Dock Type Window
If you have multiple docks, the only way to download these simultaneously, is to ensure each Dock is a different 'type'.
The Dock Type Window allows you to change the Type of Dock.
When the Dock Type window is first opened, the currently active Dock Type will be indicated by the orange highlight and grey box next to the Type name.
To change the Dock Type, simply click on another Type (you will see the orange highlight and grey square change position to the new Type), then click the apply button.
The process takes 10-15 seconds to complete, at which point it will return you to the Status window.
Repeat this process for any other docks, assigning a different Dock Type for each.
The status window has a two key elements, numbered in the below image
- Device Information
The Device Information pane is a simple summary readout of the firmware version of the dock, the current battery voltage and the number of connected devices.
- Slot Map
The Dock Slot Map provides an overview of the slots on the dock. Each slot summary will show whether or not there is a device in the slot and which port that the slot/tag is communicating through. Slot 0 corresponds with the slot in the top left corner of the dock, while Slot 23 corresponds with the slot in the bottom right corner of the dock.
Please keep in mind that this readout is not instantaneous. If a device is removed and docked in another slot, this will not update on the screen until the webpage has been refreshed.
