Circutor EDS is a data logger with an embedded power studio. It's compatible with a huge range of Circutor devices either local or remote. It has 8 digital Inputs and 6 outputs. 

Both communicate with the Platform through HTTP.

When to use Circutor Power Studio or EDS?

Power Studio

Once the user has configured the parameters needed to reach a Power Studio (URL, user, password), the platform will reach that address and recover the data from the registered devices.

If you are using a Power Studio, this is definitely your choice. However, please verify that the devices that you have in the Power Studio are integrated with the platform (see the section below).

EDS

A Power Studio might as well be represented by a Circutor EDS. In this case, the user should configure a public IP and port for the EDS in order to add it to the platform. Afterwards, the platform will access that address and recover the data from the devices. 

So, when to use Circutor EDS integration?

Circutor EDS Integration is an integration directly done by Circutor. This integration will send the data from the gateways to the platform (contrarily to the Power Studio integration). It could be convenient for you to use this integration for the following cases:

  1. You do not have a fixed IP for your EDS and so you cannot configure the Power Studio.
  2. Some of your sensors are not integrated with the platform in the Power Studio integration.
