Adding the Sensor with a Configuration File

You can add the sensor to the receiver with a configuration file that contains the sensor settings you configured on Mosa2.

Before you begin

Important: You need to have Firefox version 22 to 51.


  1. Enter your receiver IP address in Firefox web browser to access the system web page. The system web page gives access to the configuration of the receiver.
    Note: Default IP addresses are: for M3 and M6 receivers, for M4 receiver. Add the address as a bookmark in Firefox to easily access it.
  2. From the left side of the page, click Sensors.
  3. Click the tab Add from Marport Sensor Config Utility.
  4. Click Browse and select the XML file.
    Information about the sensor is displayed.
  5. Select a node from the list on the left. Nodes in green are already used.

    Note: Nodes are numbered locations for the sensor on the trawl gear. Refer to the picture of the trawl to know the location of the node. We recommend you to choose: 7, 8 or 9 to install the sensor on the tunnel, and 10, 11, 12 or 13 to install it on the headrope.
  6. Click Add Sensor.
    The sensor is added to the system, with all its settings.


You can see incoming data in the control panels, in Mx.

What to do next

  • If you want to apply filters on data received by the sensor, see Configuring the Sensor Settings.
  • You can now configure the display of incoming data in Scala2.
