Configure an Ethernet/IP source (console) - AWS IoT SiteWise

Configure an Ethernet/IP source (console)

To configure an Ethernet/IP source

  1. Navigate to the AWS IoT SiteWise console.

  2. In the left navigation pane, choose Gateways.

  3. On the gateway you want to create a source for, choose Manage, and then choose View details.

  4. Choose New source in the upper-right corner.

  5. For Protocol options, choose Ethernet/IP (EIP).

  6. For EtherNet/IP source configuration, enter a Name for the source.

  7. For IP address, enter the IP address for the data source server.

  8. (Optional) Enter the Port for the source server.

  9. For Minimum inter-request duration, enter the time interval between subsequent requests sent to your server. Your gateway automatically calculates the minimum allowable interval based on your device and the number of registers you have.

  10. For Property groups, enter a Name.

  11. For Properties:

    1. For Tag, enter the property alias for your register set. For example, boiler.inlet.temperature.value.

    2. For Destination data type, choose the AWS IoT SiteWise data type that you want your data to be converted to. The default is String.

  12. For Scan rate, update the rate at which you want the gateway to read your registers. AWS IoT SiteWise automatically calculates the minimum allowable scan rate for your gateway.

  13. (Optional) For Destination, choose where the source data is sent. By default, your source sends data to AWS IoT SiteWise.You can use a AWS IoT Greengrass stream to export your data to a local destination or to the AWS Cloud instead.


    You must choose AWS IoT SiteWise as your source destination if you want to process data from this source at the edge with AWS IoT SiteWise. For more information about processing data at the edge, see Enabling edge data processing.

    To send your data to another destination:

    1. For Destination options, choose Other destinations.

    2. For Greengrass stream name, enter the exact name of your AWS IoT Greengrass stream.


      You can use a stream that you've already created, or you can create a new AWS IoT Greengrass stream to export your data. If you want to use an existing stream, you must enter the exact name of the stream or a new stream will be created.

      For more information about working with AWS IoT Greengrass streams, see Manage data streams in the AWS IoT Greengrass developer guide.

  14. Choose Add source.

    AWS IoT SiteWise deploys the gateway configuration to your AWS IoT Greengrass core. You don't need to manually trigger a deployment.
