Modified on Fri, 07 Apr 2023 at 02:32 PM

Go to the Machine Configuration Admin Menu and select [+ New Machine Configuration]


Enter in the following information for the device & setup your dialog reasons and save.


Once finished you now will need to get into Kepware Configuration application on the server. Also you will need to go to the About menu then Device Information. You will need to know what the Channel ID is for the new machine you just setup.

(If you are not sure how to use Kepware, contact SFC Support for assistance.)


Once you have the channel ID & Kepware Configuration open, find the channel and select the + next to it. This will open up the channel for you and you can now see the device, right click on the device and select properties.


Add in the IP address and set Data Collection to enabled.


After several seconds you should see the machine come up online!


If you run into any trouble, feel free to contact SFC Support.
