January 27, 2015 - eWON releases Cosy 131 VPN remote access routers with LAN, WiFi, and 3G+ connection options. With Cosy, machine builders and OEMs can access machines PLC and HMI, and troubleshoot them from the comfort of the office. 

Cosy 131 has WiFi and 3G, a USB port for additional serial devices connectivity, a SD card reader for an easier on-site configuration, and a configurable switch LAN/WAN 4 ports.

Cosy lets maintenance engineers establish a secure VPN connection from the machine to anywhere via Talk2M, eWON’s cloud-based remote connectivity solution. The router seamlessly communicates on the local area network with the PLC and the HMI, and allows remote connection from anywhere with a simple laptop, tablet or smartphone.

“Offering various connection options is highly appreciated by the machine builder who can deploy more easily by picking the right connection technology,” explains Serge Bassem, CEO of eWON. “The complexity of connecting remote equipment has increased while the technology has evolved from traditional modems to the Internet. “The dream quickly turns into nightmare when it comes to firewall and strict IT policies within the factory floor. The eWON Cosy solution does not require any involvement of the IT and that really makes the difference for our customers,”concludes Bassem.
