When Device Manager launches, it displays the table of connected devices for TimeKeepers, Routers, Beacons and Mini Beacons on the Main panel, and the docking widgets for Device Settings, Charging Stations, System Log, and the Charging Station Settings tab.
The Main panel (center area) of the Device Manager displays the table of connected devices for the TimeKeepers, Routers, Beacons and Mini Beacons that are connected to the BlackTrax. Click on the Device Type Filter drop-down to choose which type of device to display: All or TimeKeeper or Router or Beacon or Mini Beacon.
Note: TimeKeepers and Routers may be connected to a Charging Station via the USB port on the back of the unit.
The Beacon, Mini Beacon, TimeKeeper, Router devices listed in the Main panel can each be selected and the settings of the selected device will be displayed in the Device Settings widget and available for modification. You can also select multiple devices to apply several settings at once.
The configuration settings displayed in the Main panel are:
- Refresh Selection: Click this button to update the selection in the list.
- Device Type Filter: Click this button to choose which type of device to display, All or TimeKeeper or Router or Beacon or Mini Beacon.

Note: When a device is added to the list, it stays in the table, even if disconnected (will display status as Closed). When a device is added again, it will compare the unique hardware IDs to determine if the same device or not, and will update its previous location in the table.
