26

With the new Cosy+ Wireless, HMS Networks finalizes the release of the new generation of Ewon® industrial remote access gateways, bringing IIoT connectivity and cybersecurity to the next level. 

Featuring built-in hardware security, the Cosy+ range allows users to access PLC-based machines securely from anywhere, and do commissioning, troubleshooting and programming online. With the new Cosy+ Wireless version, users can connect to their machines via Ethernet, Wi-Fi or cellular link depending on the industrial situation, enabling effective and sustainable support of machines by using secure remote access. The remote access to Ewon Cosy+ gateways is done over Talk2M® – the world’s largest 3rd party industrial cloud service, with more than 400,000 Ewon gateways connected. 

Time for Cosy+ Wireless 

Following the launch of the Cosy+ Ethernet version last year, the Cosy+ Wireless addresses the increased demand for secure wireless access to machines. The demand is driven by the need to increase productivity as well as maintain secure and sustainable operations. 

“The current international geo-political situation highlights the need to access machines remotely in a secure, sustainable way, minimizing the need for on-site traveling by service teams. By releasing the Cosy+ Wireless, the most secure Ewon gateway to date, Ewon is taking industrial remote access to a new level”, says Sébastien Thinnes, Head of Products and Marketing at HMS Networks’ Business Unit Ewon.
