Proficloud Connection

Enabling the Proficloud connection

If you want to operate the controller with Proficloud connection, you need to enable the Proficloud service of the controller. When the Proficloud service of the controller is enabled, the controller tries to establish a connection to the Proficloud. Make sure that the requirements described in Proficloud - Connecting to the service are met.

  • Enable the Enable Connection check box.
  • Click on the Apply button.

The Proficloud connection for the controller is enabled. Now you can use your Proficloud account to manage and update the firmware of this controller.

Note: To protect the Proficloud configuration against unauthorized access, see Blocking the Proficloud access in the WBM's Security section.

Disabling the Proficloud connection

If you want to operate the controller without Proficloud connection, you have to disable the Proficloud service of the controller. In this case, it is not technically possible to establish a connection between the controller and Proficloud.

  • Disable the Enable Connection check box.
  • Click on the Apply button.

The Proficloud connection of the controller is disabled.

Proficloud Device Management

To manage your devices in the Proficloud, the Proficloud Device Management must be enabled. See Proficloud Device Management Service for more information on the device management.

  • To enable the Proficloud Device Management on the device, enable the Device Management check box.
  • Click on the Apply button.

The Proficloud Device Management connection for the controller is enabled.

Note: An already installed Proficloud dashboard on proficloud.net is no longer supported with firmware version 2021.0 LTS. If you want to continue using it, use firmware version 2020.6 or contact support.

  • To enable the TSD service, enable the Time Series Data at proficloud.io check box.
  • Click on the Apply button.
