eWON releases Cosy 131 VPN remote access routers

February 23, 2015 - eWON releases Cosy 131 VPN remote access routers with LAN, WiFi, and 3G+ connection options. Machine builders and OEMs can access machine PLCs and HMIs, and troubleshoot these regardless of where the machine is located in the world.

The Cosy 131 has a USB port for connectivity with additional serial devices, an SD card reader for simplified on-site configuration, and a configurable LAN/WAN 4 port switch.

The eWON Cosy enables maintenance engineers to establish a secure VPN connection to the machine from anywhere, via eWON’s cloud-based remote connectivity solution, Talk2M. The router connects on the machine network, alongside the machine PLC and the HMI, allowing remote connection from anywhere, from any laptop, tablet or Smartphone.

Many users of ‘traditional’, IT-provided, remote-access VPNs find it more and more complex to connect with remote equipment, through the customer’s Internet firewalls. “When it comes to 3rd party users gaining access to factory floor devices through corporate firewalls, with strict IT security policies, the dream quickly turns into a nightmare,” states Serge Bassem, CEO of eWON.

“The eWON Cosy solution does not require any involvement from the IT department and that really makes the difference for our customers!” adds Bassem. “Offering various connection media options is highly appreciated by machine builders, who can now more easily deploy the same solution for all customers, simply by picking the most suitable connection technology, for each site,” concludes Bassem.
