HMS Networks has added new features for secure remote access connectivity for its Talk2M Easy Setup framework, released earlier this year for the Ewon Cosy and Flexy products.
The new version of Connection Checker provides clear diagnostics and reports about the connection status and performance between Ewon connected machines in a factory and the Talk2M remote access cloud service. Users are notified whether a successful connection has been established or not, and any connectivity issue can be instantly located. Users also benefit from detailed information about which parameters need to be changed to solve the connectivity problem.
The eCatcher Remote Access software has been updated to identify IP address conflicts, offering auto-healing capabilities which have been developed by HMS based upon common internet connectivity issues in the field. In addition, eCatcher now also includes a new security feature which enables users to encrypt Talk2M Easy Setup configuration files including, for example, internet connectivity settings.
