Remote IIoT Gateway

With the Ewon Flexy, you can use OT data from any PLC or IO module to optimise machine performance and boost your overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) as well as detecting anomalies and dysfunctions before they impact the production line.

Industrial IoT Gateway & Remote Access Router

The Ewon Flexy 205 Industrial IoT Gateways are the next step up in Remote Access Routers. They are advanced, multipurpose internet data gateways that allow machine builders and plant operators alike to monitor and collect vital KPIs for analysis and predictive maintenance. 

Easily gather data from numerous well-known PLCs, HMIs, sensors, field instruments and other devices using the Flexy Modbus and OPC UA functionality.

With its range of extension cards which support numerous proprietary protocols, the Ewon Flexy enables machine manufacturers and operation managers from all around the globe to:

  • Access data stored locally on an Ewon Flexy and monitor the performances of assets deployed in remote locations.
  • Securely connect legacy equipment to their local data-, production- or business systems (ERP, MES, SCADA, etc). 
  • Reduce IT integration and pre-existing network configuration costs of their IIoT projects by calling on the OPC UA capabilities of the Flexy Gateways.

Enabling the IIoT

Flexy Remote gateways can enable you to create simple IIoT applications in minutes such as; trigger emails, SMS, or custom alarms with built-in plug-and-play menus. Take a look at the overview brochure for more inspiration. 

Flexy is OPC UA Ready

Flexy now integrates an OPC UA Client which, alongside the major automation protocols already embedded in it, allows even more interoperability. The highest security standards of OPC UA are fully implemented inside the Flexy Client and offers various level of authentication and encryption mechanisms to fit the security option offered by your PLC/HMI enabled with OPC UA Servers.

What is OPC UA (Unified Architecture) ? 

OPC UA is a communication protocol for a secure and reliable exchange of data in industrial automation applications. It has the major advantage of being platform-independent, and ensures the seamless flow of information among devices from multiple vendors. From sensors to cloud, OPC UA is fully scalable, object oriented and allows the use of structures or models which makes governance and maintenance far easier.

Thanks to an embedded OPC UA Server, the same Flexy provides an easy and secure communication channel to move information from devices, even legacy PLC’s, to IT applications. In fact its an ideal integration solution for SCADA applications for when you need to share key values of your equipment on the factory floor. 

Leveraging your machine data has never been simpler
