The eWON Cosy 131 is an industrial VPN router designed to offer easy remote access, across the internet, to machine and installations on customer sites or in the field.
With eWON Cosy, OEMs, and System Integrators can troubleshoot machines remotely without going on site, drastically reducing support costs.So in general how do eWON devicecs work? eWON industrial routers are built to fit within the automation panel and can communicate with both Ethernet and serial devices.
All eWON routers make an outbound connection via UDP or HTTPS to eWON’s cloud based VPN servers via the Talk2M service.
Internal IT departments typically do not need to do anything for remote troubleshooting to occur on the eWON router. Talk2M tunnels are initiated by the eWON and use only outgoing connections. No incoming connections are made, so no ports need to be enabled in your corporate firewall for incoming connections.
In addition, Talk2M is designed to be minimally intrusive by using outgoing ports that are usually already enabled; it uses the HTTPS port 443 or UDP port 1194.
The eWON is a reliable and secure device because they create a VPN or virtual private network tunnel that allow encrypted data links between two remote locations. Tunneling encapsulates the stream of data within an encrypted protocol, making everything that travels through the tunnel unreadable to anyone along the transmission path. Using eWON’s VPN access is a good way to ensure that data will not be seen by anyone other than you and the people you trust.
The units are also equipped with a USB port and SD Card slot for future expansion. Each device requires a power supply of 12-24 volts DC.
The eCatcher software and Talk2M free+ service are free with no recurring subscription fees. As your needs grow, you can upgrade your Talk2M account to a pro version for added capabilities and benefits.
When problems occur, the machine’s engineer can immediately analyze and resolve the issue remotely, limiting costly downtime and travel expenses.
Using eWON VPN products, you make it easy for the machine builder to setup and control a secure connection to your machines while keeping your corporate network integrity secure.
