Transfer data via SD card
When you’re ready to process your data, you’ll need to transfer it from the device SD card:
Disconnect the logger from your application (the CANedge is 100% power safe)
Extract the SD card, insert it into your PC and open the
Transfer the folders/files you wish to process to your PC
Transfer data via WiFi
In addition to SD card transfer, the CANedge2 lets you auto-push data to your server via WiFi:
Follow the guide to add a WiFi access point
Configure the CANedge2 with your WiFi access point and S3 server details
Before you deploy your CANedge2 in the field, see our WiFi tips & tricks.
We strongly recommend that you test your setup before remote deployment: Ensure that the device logs data, connects to your server and uploads files as expected3
When your device is connected to your server with OTA enabled, configuration changes made via the SD will be overwritten by the server Configuration File4
To test your file upload, you can optionally use our open AWS S3 server
When the device first connects to your server, it will upload the Rule Schema, Configuration File and Device File. When the device has finished recording a new log file to the SD card, this will be automatically pushed to your server as well.
It is important that you test this in the actual location where you are installing your CANedge2. For example, mounting the device behind panels or in a box may block the WiFi access/speed.
Once your device is connected to your server, we recommend to update the Configuration File via your server (e.g. via CANcloud). If you prefer to update it via the SD card e.g. during tests, ensure that you delete the Configuration File from your S3 server device folder before making a change on the SD card (to avoid triggering an OTA update).
