HMS Networks launches Ewon DataMailbox, a secure freemium cloud-based solution allowing machine builders and factory owners to easily access data from their machines remotely.
DataMailbox is an online data buffer that enables easy retrieval of data from machines. It is a part of the Ewon Talk2M cloud service.
The Ewon routers Cosy and Flexy connect to a remote machine and send data via Ethernet or cellular connection to the Talk2M cloud. The DataMailbox is a part of Talk2M allowing application developers to easily retrieve historical data from multiple Ewon gateways using a simple API call.
Customers can collect data from multiple machines anywhere in the world in a highly secure process to analyze this data at their convenience. This allows for big data analytics and dashboards for predictive maintenance and operational intelligence. It is possible to set up a data connection in a couple of hours, no matter how complex the IT environment is, and also scale up when necessary. Users can add machines to the process in a couple of clicks.
With the DataMailbox as a data buffer, users will avoid losing data, no matter how many sites they are collecting from as data is automatically stored and forwarded if the internet connection is down. Users also always have access to a clean historical dataset for analytics applications. The DataMailbox is a freemium service within the Ewon Talk2M cloud, meaning that customers can utilize it for free for an unlimited time. By moving to the Pro version, customers get covered by a unique Service Level Agreement and can process even more data. The Freemium approach and ease of access in no way compromise’s security as Ewon solutions are trendsetters in cybersecurity. By adding this innovative service to its range of hardware, Ewon proposes an easy and scalable integrated solution to collect and process data from an unlimited number of sites, allowing customers to increase their efficiency.
Francis Vander Ghinst, General Manager, HMS’s Business Unit Ewon said: “In a time when it is risky and expensive to allow people into factories, it is our duty to provide customers with an easy, secure and scalable solution to collect data from several sites, allowing users to improve their efficiency.”
