The Endian-for-eWON is a new and dedicated VPN server for all eWON modules with VPN embedded.

The Endian-for-eWON allowing permanent remote VPN connections. Both are designed for easy deployment and management through embedded Web based user interface. A configuration Wizard is available within the eWON to achieve a complete Industrial extranet in a mouse click allowing the use of classical SCADA software for the monitoring and the remote control of your application.

Industrial extranets For infrastructure, utilities and system integrators

The idea behind an extranet is to expand the LAN externally, which means using eWON units in GPRS, 3G/3G+ or ADSL mode to securely and permanently link remote sites to a central monitoring station. From there, a SCADA application can poll values using IP addresses with no need for dial-up links. Thanks to their broad protocol support and I/O server library, eWON units can monitor Ethernet or serial devices, acquire data, and publish data via Modbus TCP. As a router, the eWON unit also enables transparent access to any Ethernet device. In addition, the eWON unit can send alarm notifications by email or text messaging when necessary and enables remote maintenance operations on automation devices connected to it.

Secure permanent remote connections with Endian for eWON

Surveillance or monitoring activities in an infrastructure or utility network may require the establishment of permanent connections if the data cannot be collected using conventional polling methods. Compared to dedicated radio telemetry and leased phone lines, IP technologies (including the Internet) have become cost effective options (the pricing model of technologies such as GPRS, 3G/3G+ and ADSL is either flat-rate or based on data volume). 

Connectivity between the remote terminal units (RTUs) and the central site – i.e. the supervisor application (SA) – is achieved by means of eWON devices (RTUs) with VPN technology on board and an Endian for eWON VPN server. The Endian for eWON server is a firewall and VPN server utility designed for easy deployment and management, which provides an intuitive Web-based user interface for accessing all of its integrated features. Your industrial extranet is just a few clicks away...  

The extranet has a star network topology, and the VPN server is located at the central node of this star. We have defined three topologies, depending where the Endian for eWON VPN server is located on the SA network:

Talk2M eWON Internet Connectivity Tool

Internet remote access - anywhere, any time

- WAN - PSTN - GPRS - EDGE - 3G - UMTS - HSUPA - ADSL - LAN eWON4005CD Talk2M (Stands for Talk to Machines) is an Internet Service designed to address the growing need for broadband and wireless access to perform remote maintenance and access distant equipment. The key added-value of Talk2M is the full integration of IT security standards by allowing an Internet communication tunnel between the user and the remote machine without any IT network security changes on either side! This major breakthrough allows easy deployment while hiding the complexity of the IT network infrastructure. Talk2M is Plug&Play and easy to use. To start using Talk2M, you need to install eCatcher, the VPN client software, on your PC.

Highlights

  • Improve your remote diagnostics

Remote machine diagnosis enables initiation of the best course of action for problem resolution. When your service department is troubleshooting a problem or unusual behavior in a machine controlled by a PLC, it is often difficult or even impossible to correct the problem if it cannot be reproduced by the service staff. In the worst case, on-site service by a local technician may be necessary to identify the problem, with all the associated communication problems and language difficulties that may arise with the mechanical engineer or maintenance technician. Sounds familiar?
With
Talk2M, you can pinpoint problems in automated devices quickly without interfering with their operation.

  • Reduce your total cost of service
With the changing economic situation, we see cost sensitivity being driven more and more by increased competition. With the purchase price representing only 40% of the typical total cost of machine ownership, effective planning and scheduling are critical processes for an efficient and cost-effective service organization. Studies show that service costs can be reduced by as much as 50% by eliminating emergency service calls. In addition, with the downsizing of corporate engineering departments, it is essential to reduce the number of field service calls that have to be handled by a limited team, which is responsible for more and more machines.  
  • Demonstrate value to your customer
Keeping up with a globalized market and the around-the-clock world of continuous production has never been easy, but customers are now demanding this more then ever. In light of the cost of shutting down a production line, the Talk2M remote access solution offers a rapid return on investment. Being able to provide immediate response translates into quick restoration of normal operation and productivity optimization for your customers. 
  • Improve product management
Improving product management and machine engineering is the joint responsibility of the R&D and customer service departments. Implementing Talk2M enables your customer service department to acquire useful information. Monitoring how customers use their machines gives machine builders a more accurate idea of their markets. This knowledge can be translated into machine re-engineering and new product development.   
  • Create service revenue
Talk2M lets your organization rethink its customer service approach and convert it from a cost center to a profit center. Supported by the implementation of Talk2M, you can offer a variety of service agreements, ranging from simple on-demand service to extended full-warranty packages. 
  • Improve your company’s image as a carbon-neutral organization 

Reduce your emission footprint by avoiding unplanned, recurrent travel for on-site service calls. Integrating the carbon issue is a responsible form of behavior that enables you to get a head start on more stringent regulations and helps you develop expertise. Your company’s image as a carbon neutral organization, or one that is heading in this direction, is valued by customers, employees, shareholders, suppliers, and public authorities.

ABB Robotics (Sweden) selects eWON to deliver remote service on a global scale.
11-05-2009 | News / Press

1.000 Robots over 35 countries worldwide remotely serviced thanks to eWON technology.
ABB's Remote Service solution allows increased production uptime, reduced mean time between failure of robots and delivery of new services to customers. With Remote Service, the robot itself automatically alerts the on-call service engineer, who can immediately access detailed robot data and quickly identify the root cause of the fault. From that moment, ABB can offer support without being physically at a customer's side and drastically reduce the number of on-site travels.  To achieve this, ABB Robotics selects eWON, the leading manufacturer of industrial M2M routers. “We were looking for off-the shelves solution to reach remotely ABB robots all around the world. We select eWON for their profound experience and knowledge in Industrial Internet M2M Routers and wide products portfolio. With eWON, ABB is in an excellent position to boost our success and give us a powerful competitive edge”, said Dominique Blanc, Product Manager Remote Service, ABB Robots

eWON, a powerful and scalable solution

The role of eWON centers around the concept of logging a robot’s key performance data and sending this remotely to an ABB service center via
GPRS technology. The information can then be viewed, analysed and reported to customers. By monitoring robot condition, proactive actions can be decided to avoid potential failures that might happen in future. “eWON offers a powerful JAVA platform that allowed us to develop our services. All communication aspects are managed by the eWON industrial router and it allows us to concentrate on our core business: the robot and advanced diagnostic methods”, said Blanc. 

Keeping up with the evolution of communication technology 

eWON is currently operational in 30 countries for ABB Robotic. eWON ensures perfect compatibility with GPRS networks worldwide. When GPRS network is not available, ABB Roboti cs connects the robots to the ABB service center using eWON brand new Internet service Talk2M. Talk2M allows secured communication between robots and the service centre over internet.

Fruitful Join collaboration  

The successful deployment comes from a very tight collaboration between eWON and ABB team either in R&D, Quality and supply chain. ABB and eWON have settled a global frame agreement to reinforce the strategic collaboration between the two companies.  “ABB offer us the unique experience to deploy our product over 35 countries in a single application, demonstrating our technology and improving our competence in large scale M2M project” said Serge Bassem, Chief Executive Officer of eWON.  

Conclusion 

eWON allows ABB Remote Service to improve availability, fewer service visits, lower maintenance costs and maximized total cost of ownership. This unique service sets ABB apart from its competitors to improve customer satisfaction and drastically reduce environment impact with less travels.
