The Gallagher TW-3 is an indicator that can connect via Wifi to the AgriWebb Mobile App. It can also connect to a Stick Reader (such as Gallagher HR-4 or HR-5) via bluetooth.

To see the full list of AgriWebb supported EID Readers see here.

It is also important to ensure that your TW-3 is running the most recent software update to ensure it remains supported for Agriwebb live sessions. You can download the latest version here.


Setup Considerations

The TW-3 has 2 physical male connectors (Amphenol plug) that can connect to your Load Bars.

It can also connect to a panel reader through the serial connection, usb or bluetooth.

Wifi connections can be setup as an access point on the TW-3. Note: You need to have the latest firmware, at least version 1.19.030.

It can also connect to your existing Wifi network in the yards.

Troubleshooting:

If you are able to connect the AgriWebb app to your TW indicator but nothing is coming though check the following:

  1. On TW-3 Go to Cog Wheel (Settings) > Equipment Connections

    • Select AgriWebb

    • Select Settings
      Data Device Output Settings*

    • Name = AgriWebb

    • Type = Data Logger

    • Output Data = EID, Weight

    • Send = on ID recorded

    • Optional resend on data change = Yes

    *When displayed as Data Device Input Settings

    • Equipment Connections > Data Device 1 > Select AgriWebb

    • Select Change

    • Disconnect

    • Select the type of Data Device > Output > Next

    • Select how you wish to connect to device Bluetooth or Wifi

  2. On the TWR go to Cog Wheel (Settings) > Device Settings > Bluetooth

    • Ensure that Enable Bluetooth is on (a tick will be present).

    • Tap on your device under Connected Devices

    • Verify that the device is classified as a Data Device, but if not tap on Data Device to set that option.

  3. If connecting via WIFI ensure that WIFI is enabled, and the device is a Data Device

Note: If you are testing the connection out at home before you get into the yards, ensure that data “send” is not “on weight lock”, rather it should be on something more appropriate (e.g. on EID read) as you don't have load bars attached.
