Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) use varying protocols. Some of these protocols can be read, and or written by, Ardexa. However, we need the following information to make sure all parameters are known and collected to the cloud:
1. Machine brand and model. This allows us to understand the type of machine being monitored or controlled.
2. Preferred name for machine or controller: This allows us to name the data source correctly.
3. IP Address: The IP address must be a static address. IT MUST NOT be a dynamic address. Provide the static IP address of the PLC.
