Lighting Tomorrow’s Potential

PangeaLink is the first intelligent lighting software that leverages the tremendous advancement of RF hardware technology over the last 6 years. While the technology may seem advanced, the setup is not. In just 10 simple steps you can have your Pangealink-equipped Rapidgrow fixtures operational. Here at RapidGrow, our R&D team has run their hardware into the ground; internal alpha and beta tests, scaled deployments, security threat assessments, and the list goes on. We are putting our reputation out there for this technology because we proved that it works.

Thank you for choosing RapidGrow LED products integrated with PangeaLink controls to meet your horticulture lighting needs. Below is our Setup and Quick Start Guide. Please let me know if I can answer any questions, and feel free to reach out anytime, day or night.

Setup Instructions

Pangealink Gateway Installation

Step 1: 

Install and mount the PangeaLink Gateway/Base Station in a central location of the cultivation.

Step 2: 

 

Plug the PangeaLink Gateway into a 110V outlet

Step 3: 

 

Connect the PangeaLink Gateway to your internet router via CAT 6 / RJ45 Cable. The gateway will need an ethernet connection in order to connect to the PangeaLink cloud services.

Step 4: 

 

Take a picture of the label that has the SNAP MAC, WIFI MAC, ETH MAC, etc… on the inside of the PangeaLink Gateway. Note: You should see it when you open the gateway door.

RapidGrow Fixture Labeling

Step 5: 

Once the Gateway is installed, locate the 6 digit MAC ID label on each fixture or driver box.

NOTE: These labels will be used to mark and identify each fixture location, and associate the MAC ID to the physical location of each fixture (geotag fixtures).

 
 
 

Step 6: 

You will need to number each fixture in the cultivation with a ROOM and NUMBER code.

 

Written Example:

Flower Room 1: Fixture 1 = F1-1 / Fixture 2: F1-2 / Fixture 3: F1-3, etc…

Flower Room 2: Fixture 1 = F2-1 / Fixture 2: F2-2 / Fixture 3: F2-3, etc…

Veg Room 1: Fixture 1 = V1-1 / Fixture 2: V1-2 / Fixture 3: V1-3, etc…

Mother Room 1: Fixture 1 = M1-1 / Fixture 2: M1-2 / Fixture 3: M1-3, etc…

Step 7: 

A. Locate the duplicate mac address label sheet provided by the PangeaLink team.

NOTE: These duplicate MAC ID labels can be used to mark your lighting layout.

Example of labels shown below:

B. The duplicate label can be used in conjunction with the lighting layout. Just apply the duplicate labels to a separate sheet (or the back of the printed layout) and write the associated fixture code (i.e. F1-23, F1-24, etc…) next to that MAC ID label:

You can also write the mac id next to the fixture code as shown below:

NOTE: Lighting fixtures with integrated Green Lights will have 2 MAC IDs listed on the fixture label. Write down both codes as displayed above.

NOTE: There may be a few ports that need to be opened up since the gateway will be connected from behind the on-site firewall. We can determine if this is necessary after everything is installed.

 

Step 8: 

Provide a lighting run-time on/off schedule for each room. You can also request custom zones and dimming percentages (ramp-up/ramp-down).

 

 

Step 9: 

Email fixture Gateway pictures from Step 4 and fixture label guide from Step 6 & 7 to the below address:

Step 10: 

Once the PangeaLink team receives the required info listed above, we can begin the commissioning phase. This may take up to 24 hrs for activation.

NOTE: There may be a few ports that need to be opened up, since the gateway will be connected from behind the on-site firewall. We can determine if this is necessary after everything is installed.

Privatized WiFi

 

Other companies are talking about embedding WiFi nodes into their lights – Pangea is doing it with AGRON fixtures, today. Feel like you are paying too much for internet service for your business?
