The aedifion edge device is an industrial PC which covers functionality such as being an automation network gateway (therefore it has two ethernet ports) and providing computing power for those aedifion services, which are sensitive to internet connection losses.
For plug and play installation of the device, aedifion preconfigures its network interfaces before shipping it to you. Therefore please provide the required shipping information.
About firewall security: Only outgoing connections from the device to the aedifion servers are needed. Set the firewall settings to these minimum requirements to enable the aedifion services.
The installation guide provides the necessary information on how to wire the aedifion edge device. Basically, first connect the ethernet cables to the right ports, then plug in power.
For any support, please do not hesitate to contact us!
Before shipping, aedifion's staff need to set some preconfigurations to account for seamless and plug-and-play plant integration. This section describes the information we need.
Please provide the name of a contact person and a post address that aedifion can ship the edge device to.
To preconfigure the edge device, please provide information about the settings of the network(s) the device will be connected to. The following flow chart helps you determine that information.
Minimum firewall requirements
Outgoing connections on the following ports need to be allowed:
Port 443 (HTTPS)
Port 22 (SSH)
Port 8884 (MQTT over TLS)
Port 123 (NTP to Ubuntu standard timeservers - not necessary if NTP servers are locally available)
Outgoing connections can be limited to our server IPs.
Contact us in case of firewall compliance issues.
Please install the aedifion edge device as follows.
Depending on the requirements of your project, aedifion ships different industrial PCs as hardware for the aedifion edge device. Every package of an aedifion edge device comes with an individual installation manual. The picture below shows how we label ethernet ports:
