ODBC Database

ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) is an open standard Application Programming Interface (API) for accessing a database. For ODBC databases, the following setup parameters are necessary for a successful connection:

1. Machine brand and model: This allows us to understand the type of machine being monitored or controlled. 2. Preferred name for machine: This allows us to name the data source correctly.

3. IP Address: Provide the static IP address of the database.

4. Port: Default value is usually 1433. If different, please send to the person implementing the connections. 5. Credentials: The database's username and password are necessary in order to connect.

6. Database name: Important parameter for correctness of the mapping.


If the database is not ODBC compliant, please consult your Ardexa Account Manager.
