TCP Port 8080on the IP address for which the XML Server is located. Ardexa needs to know the IP address of the OPC XML DA server for the plant. Once the Ardexa edge device is installed on the plant's network, verify that it can "ping" the XML Server using the following command in the REMOTE SHELL (replace the IP address with the IP address of your XML Server):

logbooktables. It is recommended that only 1 scenario be created, with a collection frequency of 30 seconds. Note again: This plugin takes about 5s per turbine/grid. You MUST ensure that the frequency allows enough time to read all the data. For example, trying to read 7 turbines every 30s WILL FAIL. Running a
