Access to your machines and systems via the mobile phone network, anytime and anywhere.
Mobile communication technologies enable you to establish connections to your machines and systems via the Internet anywhere at any time. This ensures continuous data acquisition and efficient remote maintenance.
For the purpose of ensuring that your network connections are interruption and manipulation-proof, Phoenix Contact offers products featuring the most up-to-the-minute security mechanisms, such as VPN, IPsec encryption, and integrated firewalls.
Secure remote maintenance concept
Secure remote maintenance concepts for machines and systems reduce downtimes, save traveling costs, and limit administrative expenditure.
For the continuous acquisition of your process data, Phoenix Contact offers mobile communication devices supporting package-oriented services, such as GPRS, EDGE (GSM network) and UMTS/HSPA (3G).
These connections are not billed according to the connection time, but based on the volume of data. Consequently, for example, remote pumping stations or traffic signs can be linked to the control center simply and cost-effectively.
Mobile communication-based remote control technology
In addition to the industrial mobile communication routers, Phoenix Contact offers a complete range of mobile communication products. These facilitate the compilation of scalable solutions consisting of communication and security technology and remote control.
Ensure that you are always promptly informed of faults in your machines and systems and avoid damage. Phoenix Contact will provide assistance in the form of various alarm messaging solutions.
Industrial mobile communication devices, such as the SMS relay with configurable warning and alarm inputs, are ideally suited for monitoring small applications. For a higher number of messages, the freely programmable ILC 151 GSM/GPRS small-scale controller is available. Both solutions can be used to send text messages as SMS, fax or e-mail messages and set one or more partner switching outputs.
One network via SMS
It is frequently the case that an SMS alarm message is not only intended to be sent to a mobile phone, but also to the alarm management of a control system. This is facilitated using a controller and GSM modem from Phoenix Contact. SMS messages can be received and also forwarded to a control center via, for example, an OPC interface.
