Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

You can configure the character set so that the system just supports Chinese or supports Chinese and English input. The character set facilitates device identification and management, for example, Chinese interface description can be configured.

Currently, the system supports the following character sets: GBK, UTF-8, and ISO8859-1. GBK and UTF-8 support both English and Chinese input, whereas ISO8859-1 supports only English input. GBK is a Chinese character set and UTF-8 is an international character set. To enter Chinese characters on the device, configure GBK or UTF-8 according to the character set supported on the terminal login software.


The character set supported by the terminal login software affects the display of Chinese characters. If the character sets in the system and on the terminal login software are different, Chinese characters may be displayed as garbled characters.

After the character set function is configured, the device cannot work together with eSight or iManager U2000. The web system only displays the UTF-8 character set and does not support Chinese input.


# Configure GBK as the character set in the system.
