Remote VPN Access explained

To start with remote machine access, connect your PLC's, HMI's, Industrial PC's, Robots, IP cameras and other machine control components to the IXrouter – our industrial VPN router. Once you've connected the IXrouter to the internet via 4G, Wi-Fi or Ethernet, it sets up a secure outgoing VPN connection to IXON Cloud. No additional software required!

Once the router is set-up, you can remotely connect to your machinery to access and control it over the internet from anywhere at any time. With the push of a button on the IXON Cloud platform, your laptop or mobile sets up an outgoing VPN tunnel to the IXON Cloud, allowing you to get PLC remote access over VPN. HMI's and other industrial equipment can be integrated in the IXON Cloud.

The VPN route between your device and the machine, enables you to program PLC's and HMI's remotely, or use remote online condition monitoring to keep an eye on the machines' performance. On-demand VPN remote access is easy, responsive and flexible, saving you operational costs in troubleshooting.
