The Node table

This table contains information about the openPDC instances using the database. You will most likely only need to enter one record into this table. If you have multiple instances of the openPDC using your openPDC database, you will need to add a record for each of them.

The Node table allows you to use one configuration database for multiple deployed openPDC instances, should that be desired.

You setup new inputs using the device table:

The Device table

This table contains information about the devices sending data to an instance of the openPDC. Devices can be PMUs or PDCs. PMUs that are connected through an intermediary PDC should also be present in this table.
