Additional product documentation
Encrypted VPN tunnels
The IXrouter connects to a VPN server within the IXON Cloud infrastructure. It always automatically seeks the correct service and fastest available server. This gives you worldwide remote access to every device behind the router, like the PLC and devices in the local machine network.
Compact industrial design
Designed for the control cabinet. The modern chipset ensures a super compact design. The IXrouter fits inbetween your fingertips, can easily be mounted on a DIN-rail and its connections are exactly where you want them to be.
100% secure for your customers
Assure your customers of a secure connection. The IXrouter sets up a secure outgoing connection that can be deactivated locally by the customer. IXON's Certificate Authority system prevents Man-in-the-Middle attacks, and a fixed IP address or opening firewall ports are no longer necessary.
The powerful firewall separates the machine network from the company network. Assure your customers of a secure solution.
Data logging and alarms
Gain access to the data in your machine devices with data logging, fully managed on IXON Cloud. The IIoT gateway supports protocols such as OPC-UA, Modbus TCP, Siemens S7, Ethernet/IP and BACnet.
This makes it very easy to collect data from PLCs, HMIs, IPCs, sensors, frequency invertors, drives and other industrial components.
The IXrouter actively monitors the machine for certain events. In case of a trigger, users are informed about the event via IXON Cloud.
Secure remote access
Get easy web-based access for remote troubleshooting, analysis, software updates or maintenance. The industrial VPN router establishes a secure remote connection from the PLC, Industrial PCs, robots and HMIs to IXON Cloud and the built-in firewall secures the local IT network. No user license fees or bandwidth restrictions.
Local power on the edge
The powerful dual-core processor and fast SDRAM memory allow for advanced data analysis locally on the edge. This minimises the amount of data sent to the IXON Cloud. For example, only send the maximum value of an hour. With 8GB local data storage, you'll never lose any data due to a temporary loss of internet connection.
MQTT for data transfer
IXON Cloud sends commands and configurations to the IXrouter using the MQTT connection. The IXrouter in turn sends status reports, data and notifications to IXON Cloud.
Wi-Fi Hotspot & Client
The IXrouter functions as a Hotspot, but can also connect to a Client with a Wi-Fi network. It even offers these functions simultaneously.
The IXrouter supports access to a second subnet, for example when there's a network behind the PLC.
OTA Firmware upgrades
Remotely push the latest IXrouter firmware to your device "over the air". Only firmware signed by IXON is accepted.
