We had a PME training and the trainer used an 8650B simulator for some of the training. He was able to connect to this virtual meter using ION Setup and PME. Could I please have some guidance for getting this setup?
All I can remember was him starting the simulator and being able to connect to it using an IP address of 255.255.255.0 or something similar. I'm sure I am missing a step or maybe have the default IP address wrong? Any tips would be appreciated.
The Windows simulators use localhost (127.0.0.1)
Good day kindly refer to the solution posted the solution also works in PME, but there seems to be a problem when connecting in Windows Server 2022 with PME, awaiting updates
Life Is On 🙂
I was able to connect the device using the (127.0.0.1) localhost, but while using multiple simulators (ION7400,PM8000 AND ION8650) I´m running into issues while connecting each device to the PME since I´m not sure how this process works, when I open the simulators and then open the web applications on PME they all connect to one same simulator, even tho I created on the manager console one for each simulator. Does anyone know how can I connect multiple simulators on PME? Also i was trying to find the historical data of the simulator but I can´t see any historical register data, is it possible to read historical data from a simulator device? Thank you in advance.
Hello @Jorge_Pasamar ,
Different versions of simulator may have different behavior. By default, simulator will use port 7700 on computer running simulator. Some versions of simulator would increment by 1 each time if port already in use, 7701, 7702, for example. Some simulators could have the ION port defined with argument, simulator.exe -p [port number desired] . In PME, would need to define the port to match the simulator.
