There are 3 kinds of I/O devices that can be used with Ksenos – older Ksedio devices using a proprietary protocol, newer devices using Modbus protocol (such as Moxa ioLogik) and camera I/Os using ONVIF.
Ksedio is a discontinued product, but the support for it still exists.
To add a Ksedio board to Ksenos, navigate to Settings > Devices, press the sign to add a new device and select Ksedio. Select the newly added ksedio from the list and enter an IP address and port – the device will connect automatically.
Ksenos Modbus protocol supports most I/O devices that use Modbus/TCP (such as Moxa ioLogic, Advantech ADAM).
To add a Modbus device, navigate to Settings > Devices, press the sign to add a new device and select Modbus. Select the newly added modbus from the list and enter an IP address and port – the device will connect automatically.
By default, the device settings are correct for Moxa ioLogik E1214 (6 inputs and 6 outputs). Change these to match the device being used.
Cameras with inputs and/or outputs can be used via ONVIF if the camera supports this.
To use the camera I/Os, add the camera as an ONVIF camera (Add a camera) and navigate to the settings of the camera, select the Additional features tab and enable Receive input events from this camera.
