Remote control and remote maintenance – what is the difference?

With regard to remote communication, a distinction is made in the field of industrial data transmission between remote maintenance and remote control. Although identical technologies are used as a general rule, the features of these very different applications need to be addressed.

Remote control describes the secure and continual transmission of process data to the control center. This allows monitoring and control of even remote external stations and substations. In contrast to remote maintenance, a permanent connection to a remote station is required in the vast majority of cases.

Remote maintenance involves temporary access to a system or machine. This direct worldwide access to controllers and Ethernet networks makes it possible to carry out maintenance and service work quickly and efficiently.

Proactive and precise early warning messages via SMS or e-mail enable fast troubleshooting and therefore minimize production downtimes.
