Nowadays PLC programmers face a common issue: the fact that they need to program and debug locally.
We know that there are products on the market that let you work remotely, but all of them are expensive and require an active internet connection, which implies a monthly cost.
M2Smart can solve both of these problems: it is an exclusive piece of technology that lets you program without the need to buy expensive hardware or to have a secondary active internet connection. Now, you will only need three things:
- An Access Point
- A Smartphone
- M2Smart Software
With only those things, you will be able to remotely program and debug your PLCs and machines, avoiding unnecessary trips that cost you time and money.
How does it work?
Like most excellent idea, its secret is its simplicity. To program PLCs, you just have to have them connected to a LAN. The working diagram is like this:
We have a Smartphone – PLC connection via the access point and a hotspot. We then establish a Smartphone – Maintenance Computer connection via a VPN.
All of this is possible thanks to our M2Smart app and cloud system. This deals with both sides to set the connection and make sure that you do not have to worry about technical details and can focus on your work.
Simple. Effective. Successful!
