I would like to use SFTP to transfer the COMTRADE file from ION9000. The User Guide suggests we use SFTP client software such as FileZilla or WinSCP. But both of them are paid. Is there any free software available for SFTP? Thanks
Alternatively, you can use ION Setup to gather the COMTRADE files as well as it uses DotNet which is embedded in the newer OSes to provide a SFTP/FTP connection to the ION meter and gather the files for you.
Go to the Setup Assistant for the ION9K, select Power Quality, select either Sag/Swell Logging or Transient Logging and there should be a Save button available. You can specify a date/range or all and ION Setup will make a SFTP (or FTP) connection to the meter if it can do so and download the appropriate files and save them in the selected folder.
This works really well for us, thank you! Facing same issue here. Help is appreciated.
