Universal Gateway allows you to combine two different devices of different protocols. It let you set a relations between them in order to make possible that the implementation of the command on a device also corresponds to the implementation on the other. Universal Gateway therefore acts as a real bridge between different devices. This means that as soon as we will act on a device automatically also the second will act in a similar way and vice versa.
You can set relations between different components of different protocols.
You can choose if the logic should be an unidirectional or bidirectional logic.
You can import and export logics from an EVE unit to another.
How to install plugin modules
The following video shows you how to download EVE Logic tool on your PC and then how to install EVE plugin modules. All these steps have to be done using EVE Manager software which connect to EVE Server for installation. You can also check the plugin modules installation page.
How to configure the plugin
This video shows you how to configure the specific plugin module. Get to the configuration page entering http://your_IPaddress/logic/plugins/universal-gateway as URL on your browser. Otherwise use the plugin configuration area on EVE Manager software tool.
Step by step support
1. Enable/Disable plugin
To enable/disable the plugin to use click the ON/OFF button on the right corner on top of the web page screen.
Turn the plugin ON is the step that you don’t have to forget in order to make it enabled to work.
Now you can start setting logics. Proceed with matching two different components with different protocol.
Choose the first component from the components list on left. Then choose the second component from the list on right. Depending on the first selected component, the second list will show you only components of the same type.
It will be impossibile to be wrong and match the same component more than once. All selected components of the first list will be automatically cancelled from the second list as soon as they will be chosen. Likewise, components will be automatically cancelled from the list as soon as they will be added for a logic.
2. Gateway direction
Choose the direction of the central arrow in order to set the gateway direction:
There are two different options:
– “bidirectional arrows” : both components’ actions will reflect on one another;
– “one way arrow” : only the first component’ actions will reflect on the other.
In order to change direction of the arrow just click on it.
4. Import / Export configuration
In order to simplify and speed up the copy of your Universal Gateway logics onto another different EVE, the plugin provides you a specific feature. Switch to “Setting” tab in order to import and export the full logic project of your “Universal Gateway” plugin module. What is necessary is that both EVE units have identical components .
Select the config.cfg file from the file folder
Save the Universal Gateway project as a config.cfg file
It is also possible to use this feature as a backup of the plugin.
5. Other options
Each new configuration row ends with an “X” icon. If you does need to remove a specific logic just click on it and changes will authomatically be saved.
