Schneider PowerLogic EGX300 Gateway via FTP
It is assumed that your EGX300 Gateway already collects data from your meter(s). If not, read and understand Schneider manuals for installing, operating, or maintaining your EGX Gateway. Installation and program procedures must be carried out and inspected by qualified personnel. Qualified personnel are those who, based on their training and experience, are capable of identifying risks and avoiding potential hazards when working with this product.
Step 1: Register your gateway and data points with Wattics
One of our tech support representatives will register your EGX300 gateway, and will be in touch with you to set up your monthly subscription fee and give you access to the Wattics dashboard. You will also receive username and password to use when setting up the gateway to send log files to the Wattics FTP server.
Step 2: Configure your EGX300 Gateway
The EGX300 allows you to export device logs by FTP.
1. Connect to your EGX300 webpage by entering the EGX300 IP address into a browser address bar. The default login credentials are:
- Username: Administrator
- Password: Gateway
2. Click on the Setup button
3. Click on the Device Log Export option
4. Select FTP as the mode of transport.
5. Enable the Incremental check box, to have the EGX push only the new data logged since the last successful upload. If the Incremental check box is not selected, the whole log file is sent via FTP on each scheduled interval.
6. Select how often the data logs are exported to Wattics: Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or Logging interval. Wattics supports all time intervals so you can select based on your requirements.
7. Depending on which options you selected in the previous step, you may need to select the time of day, day of the week, and/or the day of the month when the logs are exported.
8. In the Server IP Address text boxes, enter ftp01.wattics.com
9. In the Server TCP Port text box, enter 21
10. In the Directory text box, enter source
