Reset the T-RAX Controller Card to Factory Defaults

If you have changed the administrative password or the network settings on the T-RAX and can no longer access the unit, you can reset the controller card to factory default settings.

  1. hold in the recessed button on the Controller Card located between the 8 LEDs and the USB port for 5 seconds, then release.
  2. all LEDs will briefly illuminate red and the display on the T-RAX will show it is rebooting.
  3. after the reboot, the display on the T-RAX should show the current IP address it received over DHCP. If no DHCP server is present, it will show a link-local (169.254.x.x) address which it automatically assigns to itself.

After the reset, the following Controller Card settings will be changed:

  • Web User Interface administrative password: admin
  • Ethernet configuration: DHCP Client
  • Hostname: TRAX
  • Timezone: UTC
  • Wi-Fi: disabled, network name / SSID is reset to Teranet-0
  • Logging / external syslog server: disabled
  • NTP client: enabled


NOTE: Encoder / Decoder card settings are not modified with this reset -- only Controller Card settings are changed.
