When it comes to remote maintenance for industrial systems distributed around the world, Phoenix Contact provides a wide range of robust industrial routers for wired or wireless remote access to networks. These products feature state-of-the-art security mechanisms such as VPN, IPsec encryption, and integrated firewalls. This means you have the ability to establish connections to your machines and systems anywhere and at any time, and can perform maintenance and service work quickly and efficiently.
Industrial cybersecurity protects networked industrial systems and equipment from attacks, data espionage, failures due to viruses, malware, and misuse. After all, cyber attacks and malware can cause a great deal of damage, from loss of know-how, images, and data to expensive downtime and personnel costs for correcting damage, all the way to demands for high ransom.
That’s why we provide security routers and industrial firewalls that are specifically designed to meet the needs of industry and monitor data traffic in the network. Only the data traffic you want is allowed; unauthorized access attempts are blocked. This increases the availability of your systems.
With the mGuard security routers, you can establish worldwide VPN remote maintenance connections and safeguard your network at the same time with a firewall. The robust industrial routers are available as both DIN rail devices and PCI cards.
You can initiate the remote maintenance connection via either the mGuard Secure Cloud or a suitable mGuard peer. Various designs are available as peers: Portable hardware, desktop devices, 19" devices, or VPN software.
mGuard routers are also available as an option with an integrated 4G (LTE) cellular interface that allows secure high-speed communication in European 4G cellular networks, with AT&T (USA), and Verizon Wireless (USA). With license and function extensions, the remote maintenance routers are also scalable, so they can grow along with your requirements. All mGuard devices can be managed via the mGuard Device Manager central management software and include the option of easy startup via SD card as an alternative.
The cloud clients connect machines to the mGuard Secure Remote Service securely over the Internet. They are an inexpensive entry-level solution for the scalable remote maintenance of machines. You also have the choice over which medium the VPN connection is to be established. The cloud clients can communicate across lines via the operator network, as a WLAN client, or via 4G cellular networks. They are configured using the mGuard Secure Remote Service and are ready for immediate use in the machine.
The cloud clients also feature on digital input and one output. As a result, service connections to the mGuard Secure Remote Service can be established and signaled as required.
The TC ROUTER cellular routers from Phoenix Contact enable robust data links via 4G cellular networks. This allows you to establish a mobile broadband connection for highly flexible site networking even in places where a wired Internet connection is not available.
Phoenix Contact provides suitable cellular antennas and antenna cables to ensure that your cellular routers communicate reliably. Depending on the installation location, choose between omnidirectional antennas for mounting on control cabinets, wall mounting, mast mounting, or for direct installation on the device. Accessories such as the corresponding surge protection complete the package.
You will find more information on selecting the right antenna and correctly installing it in our Flyer: 10 antenna rules.
