[Video] Cloud Access explained

HMI remote access and web-based access to PLC’s web server

In this video, Job Euwes, International Sales Manager at IXON, shows the power of the Cloud Access feature on IXON Cloud.

In a previous video, Job explained how you can set up industrial remote access to create a secure connection to your machine’s PLC. With Cloud Access you get remote access to the HMI and can control the Human Machine Interface (HMI). Also remote access to the web server from the PLC using VNC, HTTP or a WS service.

Remote access, control and view the HMI from a smartphone

Besides remote access to your HMI panel, controlling or viewing the HMI from remote has never been easier. On your smartphone or web-based via browser, you can even pan and zoom, and with the keyboard, you can enter details.

Open the machine’s PLC web server through a secured HTTP connection

If you want to enter the webpage that is running in the machine or robot, we make sure that the unsafe HTTP webpage is secured through an HTTPS connection.

Your machines HMI & web servers are now on-demand accessible on any device from remote.
