Instructions – Hub

Hub has one power button, UART and USB interface on the side. On the top there is an indication LED. The Hub needs to be supplied by external device via UART (3.3 or 5V).

  • Pairing the Hub with PATpad

These steps are needed only for the first time or when changing the Hub/PATpad with another one.

1. Turn-on the Hub with short press on button on the side. LED starts blinking slowly.

2. Make sure that PATpad is also on and in range. Any other device (phone/display) should not be connected to the PATpad.

3. The Hub is now scanning for available PATpads with LED blinking fast.

4. Short press the button on the Hub to start pairing process. LED starts blinking very fast.

5. Short Press “0” on the PATpad to perform bonding. LED starts blinking very slowly.

Optional: you can now use your phone(s) and connect to the PATpad via app.

6. To switch off the Hub, press and hold the button for 2 seconds. Auto-off happens after 4 hours of inactivity.

7. In order to pair the Hub with another PATpad or vice versa, reset both devices. Make sure that devices are switched on first.

    • Hub reset: press and hold button for 10 seconds.
    • PATpad reset: press and hold white zero dot for 10 seconds.
    • Repeat the pairing procedure.

Note: it is not possible to switch off or reset the PATpad if connected to the Hub – this is protection against unwanted switch off when hand measurement of the landing result is needed. To switch off or reset the PATpad, do that first on the Hub.

    • If manual measurement of the landing is necessary, make sure you are not pressing the result #4. Long press to the result #4 leads to the hard reset of the PATpad.
    • In order to maximize the range, direct the PATpad arrow to the Hub. 

  • UART interface

In order to use the Hub with another 3rd party system, the connection via UART needs to be established. Use power supply from external device/your system (3.3 or 5V) to supply the Hub. 

For the communication protocol and implementation on 3rd party side, please follow the instructions in the document:



Conditions of use

  • Important: Never use rigid shoes or rigid extensions on PATpad,
  • Always put the PATpad on flat surface without sharp objects underneath,
  • Do not charge the battery during usage of PATpad,
  • Always charge the PATpad over USB port and attached cable,
  • Storing/operating temperature: 0-40 °C,
  • Storing/operating humidity: 0-80 %,
  • Avoid long term exposures to direct sun,
  • Do not use the PATpad/Hub in harsh outdoor conditions (rain, snow, dew, hail, etc.),
  • Do not put other objects on the PATpad/Hub when storing,
  • Clean the PATpad with damp cloth when necessary.
