The RediGate is a multi-application remote data communications computer/data integration device. It provides a wide array of SCADA and other communication and logic processing functionality. In order to configure the operational characteristics of the RediGate, Elecsys provides the Advanced Configuration Environment (ACE) program. This manual describes the configuration objects of the RediGate, including the standard features and some of the optional properties that may be specific to some customer installations.
This manual omits many of the protocol-specific details for configuring master or slave communication to various proprietary protocol-based devices. Elecsys provides a number of supplementary protocol-specific manuals documenting the ACE objects for individual protocols.
This manual also does not cover programming the RediGate using the ISaGRAF development environment or POD logic. See the Elecsys ISaGRAF Manual and POD Programming Manual for that information.
ACE Configuration Program
Within the ACE Editor, a configuration is made up of a collection of "objects." Each configuration object is represented by an icon and contains general properties and specific fields that provide operational settings for the RediGate and/or HCP.
