Use the workflow checklist to set up the Connect X200 / X300 and activate Operations Manager. We recommend that you open two browser tabs during the commissioning process: one for the Connect X200 / X300 and the other for Operations Manager.

Before signing up for an account, we recommend that your gateway has been installed and commissioned on-site first. When choosing a trial subscription, having your gateway first will allow you to use the trial subscription for the maximum time allotted.

The recommended browsers are:

  • Google Chrome and Chromium based browsers
  • Mozilla Firefox
