Tutorial: Querx Panel

The Querx Panel application is available for Windows PC and Raspberry Pi. It displays measurements and alerts for up to nine sensors in a full screen visualization. This makes it possible to, for instance, create a large display in the fields of production and storage on a tight budget.

Querx Panel can be used free of charge.

 

Alternatively, we offer a box that is based on Raspberry Pi, on which Querx Panel is pre-installed. An HDMI monitor can be connected to the box directly. Merely the network connection needs to be set up and the values that are to be displayed need to be configured.

Installation on Windows:

1:Download the install file and execute it.

2: Follow the instructions that appear on the screen.

3:  Launch the app “Querx Panel”.

Installation on Raspberry Pi:

1: Download the image for Raspberry Pi.

2: Format the first partition of an SD-card in the FAT32 format and extract the archive to this location.

3: Insert the SD-card into your Raspberry Pi.

4: Connect a network cable and a mouse to your Raspberry Pi. The mouse is only required during configuration.

5: Boot the device by connecting the power source.

Note: A DHCP server is required for the tutorial.
