  • Finish and Specifications
    Supported Desk Typeszioxi onView deskSense can be implemented in any desk which has or can fitted with a cable management tray and has an adjacent mains power connection, whether originally supplied by zioxi or not.
    Product ConfigurationsOne onView deskSense module can monitor a group of upto 12 desks. All desks in a group need to be adjacent, so in a cluster or row. Product options for the support of 4, 6, 8 or 12 desks in a group are available.
    Power ConnectionRequires 1 external AC power connection per desk group. Supports UK & EU 220V – 240V AC mains plugs & sockets, others by request.

    All onView DC powered intelligent sensors utilise the mains power source, so there are no batteries to monitor or periodically replace.

    ConnectivityConnectivity from each desk group controller to the zioxi cloud service is via 2.4Ghz WiFi utilising existing establishment Wireless Access Points. An SSID configured for only the 2.4GHz frequency is essential (using the same SSID name for both a 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks will cause connectivity issues). Most WiFi security protocols are supported, with the exception of captive security requiring the dynamic entry of userid and password. This provides total flexibility in terms of desk positions and requires no additional network infrastructure. Firewall & filtering access out to the web may need local configuration.
    onView LicenseTypically a standard 3 year subscription is bundled with the initial product purchase (see Product Codes). Enhanced licences for additional users and extensions for future years are available on request.
    Warranty2 years. Warranty requires WiFi connection to the zioxi cloud service. This enables automatic software updates and remote support.
