Further network setup (see the Preparation section) is done remotely by NODA personnel via a remote management system once the NODA Modbus Gateway has successfully connected to the internet via the mobile network.
NOTE: For highly skilled technicians, if required, NODA can provide temporary access to the web interface of the NODA Modbus Gateway.
Slave device setup
The Modbus TCP/RTU slave device should be configured by a professional with the required knowledge of the specific equipment. Specifics on this task is out of scope for this document. Please refer to the technical manual for the particular slave device.
TCP Gateway setup
The default IP on the LAN interface for the NODA Modbus Gateway is
192.168.1.1. However, one can change the IP if the network requires it.
Suppose an optional and appropriately recommended firewall limits the communication between NODA Modbus Gateway and the Modbus TCP slave(s). In that case, the recommended solution is to
port-forward the traffic over the firewall from the NODA Modbus Gateway and on to the target Modbus TCP slave on the LAN.
Such configuration is out of the scope of this document and should generally be handled by a network administrator.
RTU Gateway setup
If the settings for the RS-485 port matches the RS-485 network, there should be no further setup necessary.
Server-side request setup
Data exchange setup between the NODA Modbus Gateway and the Modbus TCP slave(s) is done via the online tool EnergyView, using administrative credentials. This step is out of scope for this document.
