Remote connection options for monitoring, troubleshooting and maintenance - a white paper
12 July 2010
Each year an OEM machine builder can spend thousands of pounds on expensive site intervention costs, including related travel expenses, in many cases to arrive on site and find that a simple fix or parameter adjustment is all that was required. A new white paper from Insys Microelectronics discusses the options available to OEM machine builders to avoid unnecessary costs by using a remote connection to the electrical control equipment. This means that typical operations such as equipment maintenance programs, configuration changes or PLC programming can be handled directly from the OEM business premises or other remote locations.
It is important to consider the functional requirements for remote access as they impact the solution used. This white paper deals with the physical connection methods and the different scenarios for remote access to plant and machinery including connection over the Public Telephone System, Mobile Phone Networks and the Internet. If you are considering implementing remote access to remote machinery or equipment this white paper will help you understand all the options available and how to choose the best strategy for your needs.
