Supported hardware and firmwareCloud Logging is supported on the IXrouter2 in firmware 2.2 and up, and on the IXrouter3 in firmware 3.0 and up. Please upgrade your firmware if you are running an older version.
Cloud Logging is a service with which you can pull your data from your PLC, send it securely to the cloud, and access it through advanced and easy to use dashboards. These dashboards can be viewed from any device with an internet connection.
If there is no internet connection available for the IXrouter, your data is not lost. The IXrouter can locally store data for weeks at a time if there is no internet connection available. This data is not locally accessible. Once the IXrouter has internet again, it'll send the data to the cloud.
Supported hardware and firmwareThe local buffer, mentioned above, is operational on the IXrouter3 in firmware 3.12 and up. Please upgrade your firmware if you are running an older version.
In addition to visualizing the data through dashboards, you can also export this data as a CSV-file, integrate this data into 3rd party BI tools, or integrate it into your own software through our API. All the pulled data will be timestamped and displayed in your own time zone. The data can be stored for up to 7 years on the IXON servers.
