The eWON Flexy is the first industrial modular M2M router and data gateway designed for OEMs and system integrators. The flexibility allows a link to remote devices in an environment where communication technologies are constantly changing. The device can also communicate universally with the most varied field equipment, regardless of the protocol used.
Thanks to a wide range of field interfaces (RS232, RS485, RS422, MPI, Ethernet) supporting numerous industrial protocols, the eWON Flexy is able to connect to a wide range of industrial devices. Therefore, the Flexy concept allows you to upgrade easily to new technology, preventing the need to reinvest in a completely new product.
The eWON Flexy embeds VPN capabilities and compatibility with Talk2M and eFive. This allows highly secure remote access for remote monitoring, troubleshooting and application tuning. The Flexy 20x adds routing capabilities that allow remote access to any serial or Ethernet devices behind the eWON Flexy. It enables PLC remote maintenance, remote IP camera, remote HMI monitoring, etc.
The eWON Flexy is able to perform local data acquisition using the serial or Ethernet port. The data acquisition process is built around a tagged database in which each tag is associated with an I/O server. The eWON Flexy is able to perform data acquisition with the following protocols: Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, Uni-Telway, EtherNet/IP, DF1, FINS TCP, FINS Hostlink, ISO TCP, PPI, MPI, Profibus, Mitsubishi FX, Hitachi EH, ASCII.
The eWON Flexy provides full support for alarm triggering, acknowledgment, status and traceability. Alarm thresholds and parameters can be set on every tag-name. The complete alarm cycle is traced and available for monitoring and analysis. Alarm notification can be performed by email, SMS, SNMP trap and/or put FTP.
Continuous data logging and buffering can be performed on every tag-name. Each tag-name can be logged on fixed interval or on change. eWON stores tag data values in its internal database (up to 1,000,000 time-stamped points) for statistical analysis and later review or to analyze recent trends. The data-logging files can be easily retrieved by FTP, HTTP or as an e-mail attachment.
The eWON Flexy has an integrated web server for configuration and monitoring purposes. The eWON Flexy provides a highly cost-effective HMI, view-able wherever you are through any standard Web browser interface.
