Remote maintenance with the FL mGuard router

The comprehensive teleservice and remote maintenance concept from Phoenix Contact is the solution to cost-effective automation. Security should be kept in mind when it comes to machine maintenance from any location. For example, you can enable the VPN tunnel using a key switch. FL mGuard routers can be used to protect parts of your system network, complete production cells or individual automation components.

  • Same level of administration required, even if the number of machines increases
  • The customer alone enables remote maintenance
  • Easy machine integration in customer networks
  • Fast resolution of IP address conflicts
  • Machine is protected from the operator network and vice versa
  • No adaptation of machines and systems, no software required
