Here are the configuration steps, with milestones that will enable you to connect your industrial devices and stream their data to your On-Premise and/or Cloud Apps in less than 5 minutes.
First, you need Alleantia ISC already installed with an active license!
Got it? Well, let’s start!
No matter what device you want to connect, the steps to follow are:
- Get the driver for your device from Cloud Portal
- Import the driver on Alleantia ISC
- Connect your device on Alleantia ISC
- Stream your data, choosing the destination of it
1. Get the driver for your device from Cloud Portal
Go to cloud.alleantia.com and search for the driver or create it by using spreadsheet template or driver editor tool (How can I create a driver?).
If the driver you are interested in is already in Alleantia driver library just click on it, then click on the download icon in the section driver and get the .xmod file. (Figure 1)
2. Import the driver on Alleantia ISC
Open Alleantia ISC web-interface and click on "Configuration" section. In the "Information" tab, click on "Device Catalogue". As you can see there is already a list of drivers. If the driver you are looking for there isn't, and click on "Add" button to upload the driver. (as shown in the video below).
3. Connect your device on Alleantia ISC
Once uploaded the driver on the device catalogue, go to "Installation" tab (still in the configuration page) and click on "Device Configuration".
Click on "Add" button and select your driver, then select the Communication Port, insert the IP Address and other Parameters if required. Click on "Save" button.
At the end, go on "Device" in the main menu, and in the column "Devices and system measures" you can see your device. Click on it, to check all the data collected in real-time. (Figure 4)
A you can see from the Figure 3, in the column "Device and System measures" , next to the device name is an icon showing a monitor, in this case green.
This icon can take 3 colors:
Device status online. All telemetry is read correctly
Partial telemetry reading. Driver mapping needs to be verified
Device status offline. The device is turned off, disconnected from the network, or there are configuration errors
After checking the device status, you can pass to the last step.
4. Stream your data, choosing the destination of it
Go on "Configuration" in the main menu, and in the "Cloud Services" tab to select the destination of your data.

After this quick and easy steps your device is connected, and the data are streamed to the Cloud!
