Connect an EGX300 with Energy Opertation via a GPRS modem

Hello,

does anyone have a manual and/or experience how to connect an EGX300 to EO via a GPRS modem? And if possible with a SE modem (like the Wavecom).

kind regards,

Jan Willem

Re: Connect an EGX300 with Energy Opertation via a GPRS modem

Hi Jan Willem,

I suggest to use the Digi WAN GPRS modem which is also used for SEMS applications. It works very well together with the EGX300. I did some tests for remote access to the EGX300 and devices behind it. As we have the problem of changeing IP-addresses of the modem when we are working over GPRS (to get a fix address is very expensive, here) we are communicating over DynDNS.

I made a little instruction on how to configure the Digi WAN for our application and made a little try for EO export, what works fine. Please find the instruction here after. If you need more information about the Digi WAN, please feel free to contact me.

Cheers

Daniel

Hi Daniel, Thanks for your reply. Is the Digi Wan a Schneider product? Or do you have some specs so we can search a local provider?

This is a product, which I think it's not from Schneider, but it is referenced in our catalogue. Here is the catalogue page from the Simple Energy Management Solutions catalogue. You have 2 references:

1. METEGGNI which is only the modem

2. METEGGXI the modem which is delivered with an EGX300

We also use the combination of EGX300 + DIGI WAN Modem + EO in our project (with success). The configuration of DIGI Wan and EGX300 is decribed in the attached document (page 103).

Re: Connect an EGX300 with Energy Opertation via a GPRS modem

Hi Jan,

Many countries are using the InHand 701 3G industrial router.

It goes for $180 fob Beijing and works really well!

We have used it in HongKong, China, South Africa, New Zealand...

It's a lot cheaper than the Digi!

Having said that there are many other options out there!

In the end you should start using the Com'X200 though.

🙂

Re: Connect an EGX300 with Energy Opertation via a GPRS modem

Hi ,

The doc you posted is very helpful. However, it looks like it is from 2010.  The FTP information for REM/EPO/EVO is out of date.  To push data to REM, you must now always connect to 72.2.4.41.  The previous domain as shown in the doc on page11, epo.energyinteractive.com has been decommissioned.

Yes...that is an older document. Let me see if we can have it updated.

Thanks
