How to Discover the Radio Channel of an IPC

This guide assumes good familiarity with EP3 use, if this is not the case please refer to the full application note and/or the EP3 user guide.
Before performing field work ensure the following:

  • Latest firmware (V5.x or later) is loaded on your EP3
  • EP3 time is set correctly
  1. Firstly generate a SD card for your farm, insert it in your EP3 and load the IPC podlist.
  2. On your EP3 select Settings > Comms > select the Scan Channels checkbox
    • For V5 IPCs check the Use Broardcast Header box
    • For V3 IPCs do not check the Use Broardcast Header box
  3. From the main screen select IPC List > navigate to the desired IPC and select View > Comms
  4. Select the Status checkbox then Send

The EP3 will cycle through each channel and send a status request. Watch carefully for which channel the IPC responds on.
