Abstract

You are only five settings away from using the i4SCADA IoT Device! Here is an article that will help you understand what needs to be done!

Present section presents the configuration of the IoT Setting. Every SCADA server will behave like an IoT device, so this settings can be found in Studio under the Settings\[Server Name]\IoT Device section.

Active

Enables/disables the IoT functionality in Studio. If this is disabled, no data will be sent to IoT Hub.

IoT Hub Url

Host name of the IoT where to send the data, responsible for communication.

Device ID

The device name as defined in IoT Hub

Device Key

The device key as defined in IoT Hub

Transport Protocol

The transport protocol used to send the data to the IoT Hub (AMQP or MQTT). When AMQP protocol is used, the traffic on port 5671 should be enabled on the system running the IoT SCADA Manager in order to allow the communication with IoT Hub to work

All these fields are required in order to be able to send / receive data to / from IoT Hub.
