How does it work?

 

 

The Ewon Cosy establishes a secure VPN connection from the machine to anywhere in the world via Talk2M, a cloud-based remote connectivity solution.

The gateway seamlessly communicates on the local area network with the PLC and the HMI, and allows remote connection from a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Ewon Cosy and Talk2M make connectivity easy, and don’t require the user to be an IT expert to take advantage of the time and cost saving.

Powerful user access control with Talk2M Pro
