Proprietary Protocols
Some machine manufacturers create non-standard, "proprietary" serial protocols. Therefore each protocol needs a unique Ardexa plugin in order to send the data. The protocols listed below are currently available in Ardexa, so if the machine uses one of these, please read the appropriate section and send the necessary setup parameters to the person implementing the connections.
If the machine uses a protocol not listed below, please consult your Ardexa Account Manager.

ABB Aurora

Aurora protocol is used to control/monitor ABB power devices over a RS-485 bus. The protocol also works with machines connected as Option 2, through a serial-to-TCP converter. If the machine is using the Aurora protocol to communicate, please send the following parameters to the person implementing the connections:
1. Machine brand and model: This allows us to understand the type of machine that is being connected. 2. Preferred name for machine: This allows us to name the data source correctly.
3a. Serial port: Provide the serial port to which the serial line is connected.
3b. TCP port: If the machine is connected via a serial-to-TCP converter, please provide the TCP port (4001 is default).
4. Serial address: If multiple machines are connected, they each need a unique address, and these must all be sent to the person implementing the connections.

SMA YASDI

YASDI is an implementation of the SMA Data Protocols, through which our inverters communicate with other SMA devices. This is an outdated protocol and although it is supported, the configuration of it is quite involved and machine-specific. Therefore, it is recommended to send the following parameters to the person implementing the connections and then consult your Ardexa Account Manager in order to get support in connecting the machine.
1. Machine brand and model: This allows us to understand the type of machine that is being connected. 2. Preferred name for machine: This allows us to name the data source correctly.
3. Serial port: Provide the serial port to which the serial line is connected.
4. Serial address: If multiple machines are connected, they each need a unique address, and these must all be sent to the person implementing the connections.
