The highlight of the new VIPA TM-H module is the integrated industrial broadband VPN router, with which facilities with a DSL connection or within the local network can be easily maintained and controlled. In addition, with the module 900-2H681 an HSDPA modem is integrated so that a rapid elimination of errors can be achieved even in DSL and LAN-free zones.
In combination with the free Service Talk2M (Talk to machine) the frequent problematic issues, such as firewalls, missing port clearances and dynamic IP addresses can be avoided. Thereby a totally reliable, very simple and convenient connection to the remote machine and plant control systems is possible.
Because of the compact design the VPN router fits in every control cabinet and can be mounted together with the controller on the DIN rail. Thanks to the integrated MPI and PROFIBUS interface, the VIPA Systems 100V, 200V, 300S, as well as the Siemens S7-300 and S7-400 can easily be reached and maintained. There, all data from the PLC can be read and monitored. If an error occurs, the module triggers an alert via SMS, e-mail and SNMP. In addition the threshold values above which an alert message should take place can be configured in advance.
But also possible is the typical teleservice, which remote query, and controller reprogramming or alteration demands.
All these features coupled with the security of the VPN connection, makes the VIPA TM-H in the segment of the Internet remote maintenance close to irreplaceable.
All VIPA Teleservice modules can be configured through a convenient web interface.
