Easy installation

The IXrouter is an advanced PLC gateway which enables both industrial remote access and machine data collection in a single unit. In three simple steps it automatically connects to the IXON Cloud and enables remote service to equipment in the field.

Secure remote access

Get easy web-based access for remote troubleshooting, software updates or maintenance. The industrial VPN router establishes a secure remote connection from the PLC, Industrial PCs, robots and HMIs to anywhere. No user license fees or bandwidth restrictions.

PLC data acquisition

The IXrouter collects data from your industrial equipment using modern communication protocols and transmits it securely the IXON Cloud. Transform your machine data into historical and live monitoring dashboards and create machine alarms.

Overview of the IXrouter for industrial remote access and PLC data logging

Functionalities

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.

Any PLC controller and HMI brand are supported for remote access, such as Siemens PLC, Allen-Bradley, Schneider Electric PLC, Delta, Beckhoff, Omron PLC and Mitsubishi.

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.

Built-in firewall

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, 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.

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.

Multiple subnets

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.
