Countertop cabinets are Jetstream enabled devices used to transport, protect, and track field or mobile inventory. These devices support most Jetstream commands and events, but do not include temperature sensors or secured access like larger enclosures.

Model: TS083


You can send the following commands to a countertop cabinet via Jetstream.

Config Parameters

The following are the parameters that can be configured for a countertop cabinet via policy. Available parameters may differ by firmware version. To configure your own devices via Jetstream, follow this guide. Terso Support can also manage these configuration settings for you.

The following are the Jetstream Events that may come into your queue directly from a countertop cabinet. Other events pertaining to, but not generated by, the countertop cabinet are not listed here as those Jetstream-generated events do not vary by device type. See the Event entry in the Glossary to see a complete list of which events are from a device and which come from the Jetstream application.

AggregateEventYesPassRFID parameter will always be blank, since the countertop cabinet does not have a pass reader.
HeartbeatEventYesThese can be disabled by setting the HeartbeatEventInterval Config Parameter to 0.
LogEntryEventYesThese can be disabled or increased by configuring the LogEntryLevel Config Parameter. Disabling LogEntryEvents is NOT recommended, as this would prevent you or Terso from remotely monitoring the health of the unit. See the LogEntryEvents section below for more details.
ObjectEventYesThese can be disabled by setting the ObjectEventHour Config Parameter to -1.


The list below are some common, potential LogEntryEvents a countertop cabinet may send in. However, not all possible LogEntryEvents are listed in this table. The LogEntryLevel Config Parameter determines which LogEntryEvents are sent to Jetstream, the following logentryevents may be sent when LogEntryLevel = Error.

CorruptFlashCorruptFlash occurs when the event queue on the device cannot be read due to a memory failure.
DoorOpenDoorOpen occurs when the door is left open for greater than the DoorOpenTimeLimit.
DoorOpenRestoreDoorOpenRestore occurs when the countertop cabinet's door is closed after a DoorOpen scenario.
DoorSensorFailureDoorSensorFailure occurs when the countertop cabinet believes there is a problem with the door sensor.
FirmwareInfoFirmwareInfo occurs whenever the countertop cabinet is started up.
LowFlashMemoryLowFlashMemory occurs when the countertop cabinet has less than 25% memory.
LowMemoryLowMemory occurs when the countertop cabinet has less than 25% memory. This event will be sent every hour until the device reboots. Reboot occurs automatically if memory drops to 10%.
NewFirmwareDownloadErrorNewFirmwareDownloadError occurs when a request to upgrade firmware fails.
ReadExceptionReadException occurs when there is an issue performing an RFID scan.
ScanInterruptionAlarmScanInterruptionAlarm occurs when someone interrupts a scan by opening the door.
StartupStartup occurs whenever the countertop cabinet is started up.


The Countertop Cabinet does not generate any SensorReadingEvents.
