Connecting to UBIQUITY Router

Once configured UBIQUITY Router connects to the network infrastructure publishing its services exactly as it happens with UBIQUITY Runtime.

When you click on a tree icon corresponding to a Router, you get on the right pane the “Connect” icon.

Because the device does not have a screen, there is no direct link to the Desktop and interactive services.

When you click on the (Connect) button, the VPN connection is immediately started.

Router advanced access options

Once the VPN connection has been activated, you can click on the “advanced” link in the upper part of the window to get access to the advanced options.

In the screen are present the following links:

  • access to the router processes viewer

  • access to the file transfer tool

  • access to the Router remote desktop.

RM UBIQUITY Router series support

Control Center support the RM UBIQUITY Router family which will include the data monitoring function.

With the data monitoring the router can be programmed to direct access the connected controller memory and then perform sampling, archiving of data and monitoring of the possible alarm conditions for sending alerts and notifications.

Control Center allows an easy way to export the data stored in the local memory of the Router and make accessible the eventual graphical pages through an integrated viewer. All the monitoring capabilities of the RM UBIQUITY Router router are programmable in fact with Premium HMI, including synoptic features that will become also accessible through the “Web Client”, compatible with browsers and Premium HMI Mobile Apps.

When connecting via Control Center to an UBIQUITY Router with data monitor function, the Control Center shows in the top menu bar the shortcuts to get access to the synoptic and to the data-logger data for export.

From the “web pages” link, you will get the access page to the graphic screen programmed in the HMI project running on the Router. The parameters to provide are the same as the ones requested by a browser or a Premium HMI Mobile through the “Web Client” function of Premium HMI.

The graphic pages can be accessed by means of a browser or using the Premium HMI Mobile application without requiring any configuration. The following address must be used in the case of browser: https://<router_ip_address>/webserver/<screen_name>.html

Warning

The web server access uses the https protocol for secure connection. The certificate used is self-signed certificate unverifiable by a certificate authority (CA) and it is therefore possible that, depending on your browser, some specific warning messages may be displayed.

The LAN port IP address or the WAN port IP address may be used indifferently.

Fill in the fields and click then Connect to display the requested page.

When you click on the “datalogger” link you will get the page dedicated to the export of the data eventually archived in the Router internal memory. The archive option must be previously configured in the Premium HMI project deployed to the Router.

The Premium HMI project does not require any special settings, except for enabling the historical data recording.

Control Center shows a list of all the exportable data.

UNIQLOUD IIoT Gateway series support

Control Center supports the configuration of UNIQLOUD IIoT Gateway systems.

The UNIQLOUD IIOT Gateway systems of type GR1X include fully UBIQUITY features, UBIQUITY Router RM1x system features, and UNIQLOUD features (see the Premium HMI Studio user manual for this topic); All the considerations expressed in the previous chapters in relation to the configuration of the device are still valid for those systems.

Concerning the status signals through the front panel LEDs, controls and digital I/O, all the information included in the chapter External signals and commands, applies completely for the GR1x type systems. For GT1x type systems, see the Quick Guide, included in the packaging of the device or downloadable from the website on the page dedicated to the product.

Just for UNIQLOUD IIoT Gateway systems of type GT1x, the following chapters shall apply:

  • Association with the UNIQLOUD Domain (activated as an additional license; see the commercial documentation of the UNIQLOUD product for more information)

  • Configuration of the IP addresses of the network interfaces except for connectivity through PROXY servers that is not supported by UNIQLOUD IIoT Gateway Systems (possibly even through web interface after domain association)

  • Serial port configuration (possibly even through web interface after domain Association)
