Secure remote accesibility for manufacturing machinery

Secure remote accesibility for manufacturing machinery

SUMMARY

Industry 4.0 is revolutionizing the manufacturing sector. The use of automation and AI enables reaching efficiency levels like never before. Integrating previously separate systems and processes lead to increased operational performance, data-driven decisions, and an optimized supply chain. Utilizing big data and analytics eliminate a big portion of required human intervention, while increasing competitiveness, profitability, and productivity.

CHALLENGE

In manufacturing facilities, usually, various complicated specialized machinery and equipment are present that require trained engineers to be configured and looked after. Often, they are supplied by various vendors and if one part stops functioning as it should it may cause troubles for the whole production line and consequently - delays and losses.

Besides, the recent worldwide pandemic showed that in no time a big number of employees might become temporarily unavailable due to isolation requirements and the site may lose the necessary workforce required to resolve unforeseen challenges. In such situations, secure remote accessibility and management become essential. Therefore, professional industrial networking equipment is a must to connect these machines and provide remote management, while ensuring the security and reliability of the internet connection.

SOLUTION

One of the biggest benefits of connecting the manufacturing machinery to the network is the ability to collect data. RUT300 industrial Ethernet router has five Ethernet ports, two configurable digital Inputs/Outputs, and a USB to easily connect the various equipment and computers to the internet. Preconfigured Firewall ensures the security of the solution from the very start and multiple top-rated VPNs provide data encryption.

Besides, a broad interval of supported power voltages makes this product suitable for a wide range of electronic equipment. Its rugged industrial design with a wide range of tolerated temperatures and vibration resistance makes this device durable and easily applicable in various settings.

One of the biggest benefits of this solution lies in the Remote Management System (RMS). While RMS Management allows to remotely access RUT300 for updates and maintenance, RMS Connect enables to do the same with the machinery behind the router. This means that an engineer does not have to be present in a manufacturing facility to be able to configure, troubleshoot and manage the equipment. It’s also possible to set-up Events Reporting when an email is sent out after a specific event occurs listed in pre-configured rules.
