Overview

This library provides a connector for the Sedona Sox protocol. Sox is a binary UDP protocol for comminication to controllers which run the Sedona Framework control engine.

The sedona connector provides the following features:

  • Learn support to walk the remote device component tree
  • COV subscription to any component property
  • Writable support to any component property

Connectors

Sedona client connecotrs are configured with the following tags:

  • conn: required marker tag
  • sedonaConn: required marker tag
  • uri: formatted as "sox://host:port" such as "sox://192.168.1.88:1876"
  • username: user name for authentication
  • password: must have password stored in password db for connector's record id

After the first ping the following meta data tags are available:

  • sedonaVersion
  • sedonaPlatform

Points

Points use the following tags:

The address strings are formatted as "compId.slot". An example address might be "4.out" where the compId is the component's integer identifier and slot is the string name.

Manifests

Sedona connectors require a manifest XML file for each kit used by the remote devices. Manifests are stored under in the var/etc directory using this naming convention:

{var}/etc/sedona/manifests/{kit}/{kit}-{checksum.xml}

For example the "math" kit manifest with a checksum of "c22b255c" would be stored in the following file:

{var}/etc/sedona/manifest/math/math-c22b255c.xml

If running SkySpark, then manifests may be managed under the Sedona Manifests view under the Connectors app.
