The icom Data Suite is a Device App for installation on an INSYS Smart Device (router) with icom OS.

It is a comprehensive, flexible and scalable software package for connecting and processing data points with an INSYS Smart Device.

Situation

The icom Data Suite for an INSYS Smart Device is running in a container that only needs to be uploaded to the router and configured. The container will be supplied in form of an update packet. It is available for free download here and our icom Data Suite update server.

The icom Data Suite requires a valid licence with the respective activated functionality after installation. An overview of the different licences with and without costs as well as the possibility for purchase is available on our website. Without a license file, you have full access to the configuration, but some features will not be functional.

Solution

It is recommended to commission the router as suggested in the Quick Installation Guide. Different settings of the router may result in necessary adjustments of the settings described in the following.
The icom Data Suite can be installed on each INSYS Smart Device with icom OS from version 2.4. From icom OS 3.4 on, an installation wizard is available to facilitate the installation of the icom Data Suite. Both, the installation via the wizard and the manual installation are described in the following.
It is prerequisite that you have access to the web interface of the router.
