Connection Level – IP-Communication

For the open transmission principle to have its full effect, communications may be run via all common IP-based paths. Mobile data services such as GPRS / EDGE / UMTS / HSPA and LTE, as well as any Ethernet connections such as DSL/internet, dedicated lines or in-house networks (intranet), are equally suitable here. 

The type of transmission technology is completely transparent both to the slave station and the GPRSmanager. The only thing that needs to be done is to select the router suitable for the network. This allows any number of systems and machines to be transmitted via different networks, without having to make adjustments to the configuration of the PLC and at the control center.

This makes it possible to cost-effectively switch to other current signal transmission technologies.

The security of the systems and data is top priority in FlowChief remote control technology. Integrated identification with name and password allows only authorized access. Encrypted data transfer ensures the confidentiality and integrity of the data. With the possibility to link the slave stations via VPN, a logical private network can be created in a public infrastructure.
