[Imported] Automation of E configurator downloads.

>>Message imported from previous forum - Category:SCADAPack RTU<<
User: ROVSCADAENGINEER, originally posted: 2019-06-17 04:38:46 Id:450
I am investigating ways to automate the download of the E-configurator files from several sites using SCADAPack E Configurator.

Any guidance in this would be highly appreciated. Has anyone done this before.

I have a list of site IP's DNP3 addresses. using UDP protocol.

is there a command line or run program within the program for calling specific functions perhaps? It would make sense to have this for automatic backups for a Distributed network having several technicians constantly making modifications for optimising RTU controllers.

From my discussions with Schneider Tech Support the answer here is 'No'. There's no way to script E-Series Configurator to do this.
You're probably better off doing this with ClearSCADA if you can. You can download configurations with just creating an eNET OUtstation and then attaching the configuration to it.
Doing the download could then be done using SOAP to the ClearSCADA web service, or anything similar (as ClearSCADA Client DLL / .NET API allows)

Bonsoir je suis un jeune automaticien et je travaille actuellement sur un SCADA de easergy L500 pour la teleconduite d'un poste de distribution communicant avec un T200I par GSM( FXT009)..actuellement le système ne fonctionne pas et j'aimerai savoir comment est ce que je peux diagnostiqué chaque dispositif..merci pour votre attention

En effet le poste de teleconduite( PC) contient le logiciel easergy L500 qui donne une vue schématique du poste avec tous les courant de charges et l'état des disjoncteurs ..le GSM est reliée au PC par port USB ..je rappelle que le système fonctionnait avant mais depuis un moment on arrive plus a établir la connexion avec le T200I qui est dans le poste de distribution..

That's interesting...

I looked into a different form of programming called CLI. Command Line Interfacing, the language is currently beyond me. but it allows administrators to control programs with code as opposed to using a GUI.

I will look into your method which you have suggested though through clearSCADA. sounds promising.

When you say " creating an eNET OUtstation and then attaching the configuration to it.
Doing the download could then be done using SOAP to the ClearSCADA web service, or anything similar (as ClearSCADA Client DLL / .NET API allows) "

is the configuration file something you can access through clearSCADA? was not aware of this.

Translation " Indeed the teledriving post (PC) contains the easergy software L500 which gives a schematic view of the post with all the current loads and the state of the circuit breakers .. The MOBILE phone is connected to the PC via USB port.. I recall that the system used to work but for a while we can more establish the connection with the T200I which is in the distribution station.

I believe there may have been some miscommunication in my first statement. I am wanting to automate the Read of RTU configurations from sites. not download. I want to download the RTU files from sites using the E-config Read RTU config file option. Does clear SCADA offer an option to read RTU configurations within the clear SCADA interface?

Yes. In the GUI you would right click on the E-Series Outstation (CeNETOS) and select 'Upload Configuration'. If you want to use some API to access this then you obtain a reference to the CeNETOS object, and call the appropriate method for UploadConfiguration. The configuration (.rtu file) will then be stored on the Main server in the directory that you have selected for the DNP3 Master files.
