Mango Automation Intro -1 Configuring Data Sources and Points


  • After you get Mango Automation installed and you log in, the first thing you will want to do is set up one or more Data Sources along with Data Points. To help you get started we will walk you through the steps to create a basic Virtual Data Source and Data Point and then discuss some of the finer points. You can follow these same steps to configure any other Data Source including, Modbus, BACnet, or others.
