Leading provider of remote access solutions for the automation industry, Secomea A/S introduces LinkManager Mobile, a new software application designed to allow secure and remote access to industrial equipment via smart phones and tablet devices.
Deployed and used by major machine builders and system integrators all over the world, Secomea’s original solution consists of a control unit at the factory (SiteManager) and a web or Windows-based client (LinkManager) for an engineer or end-user, both of which are tied together via an M2M communication server (GateManager) available as a cloud based service as well as a standalone server.
Where the original LinkManager is intended for remote programming and requires installation on a Windows PC, the LinkManager Mobile is designed for accessing web enabled applications such as a custom web GUI of a PLC, HMI or WebCam.
The new LinkManager Mobile software can additionally establish connection to the desktop of equipment running Linux or Windows. By simply connecting to the device with LinkManager Mobile, the user can start a VNC or MS Remote Desktop client and remote control the device.
Since the LinkManager Mobile can run on an iPhone, iPad or Android device, the product is ideally suited for end users that need to remotely access their own equipment for monitoring status or perform typical operator tasks. LinkManager Mobile supports two-factor authentication login and encrypts all connections for uncompromised security.
LinkManager Mobile user accounts can be created for free in the GateManager Portal when buying a Secomea start package. The account allows monitoring of status of equipment and viewing of event logs. The LinkManager Mobile software license allows the user to connect to the Web GUI and remote desktop of the equipment via the same account.
Secomea solutions are available in Australia through DAANET
