Obtain UUID: EPC Devices

If you are connecting from a Phoenix Contact EPC Box PC like the EPC 1502, you can obtain additional UUIDs for Node-RED Flows by adding Child Devices to your Device in the Proficloud.io Device Management Service.

Before moving on, make sure that your EPC is connected to Proficloud.io. Open the WebBasedManagement (WBM) and select “Proficloud” in the configuration space. Copy the UUID and add it to your Proficloud.io account by clicking on “Add Device”. After you have done this, you can activate the Proficloud component in the WBM and click apply.

Now you will find the EPC in the Device Overview in the Device Management Service. Select your EPC Device.
