This guide will focus on the steps for connecting it to Exosite's platform and use with ExoSense.

ICP DAS WISE-5231M IIoT Edge Controller


  • Purchase and access to the ICP DAS WISE-5231M Edge controller
  • An existing Exosite account with ExoSense or you are planning to sign-up to deploy ExoSense.
New ExoSense - Application Deployment with the ICP DAS IoT Connector

This section assumes you do not have an Exosite Business Account or ExoSense application. You may skip this part if you already have access to ExoSense.

  1. Deploy the bundled ICP DAS ExoSense solution that includes the WISE-5231M required IoT Connectors by navigating to

    ExoSense Application & IoT Connector Entry

  2. Follow the steps in Sign-up and deploy ExoSense page to complete the deployment.

Once you've done the steps above, you have deployed ExoSense and got the Off the Shelf IoT Connector added. You can now go to Section 2 to configure your ICP DAS controller to report data.

Existing ExoSense - Add the ICP DAS IoT Connector

If you already have an ExoSense application deployed and you just need to add the ICP DAS IoT Connector in order to gather data from your ICP DAS controller. Find ICP DAS Off the Shelf IoT Connector in IoT Marketplace and follow the instructions given in Link IoT Connector to the Applcation section to finish the action.
