Remote VPN Access explained

Connect PLCs, HMIs, IP cameras and other control components to the IXrouter – our industrial VPN router for PLC remote access. 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.

Now you can connect to your machine/PLC via the internet from anywhere in the world. With the push of a button on the IXON Cloud platform, your laptop or smartphone sets up an outgoing VPN tunnel to the IXON Cloud, allowing you to remotely connect to the IP address of the PLC.

Since there's a transparent connection between your device and the machine, you can use remote condition monitoring to keep an eye on the machines' PLC performance and control, program and fix bugs remotely.
