Weidmuller’s portfolio of Industrial Ethernet components includes four security router models, two Industrial Access Routers as well as two mini routers. In addition to providing access to the Internet, Weidmuller’s Industrial Access routers separate Ethernet networks for reasons of data integrity or for simpler configuration purposes.
Both industrial Access routers connect industrial Ethernet networks safely and simply to the internet. This is achieved by means of the integrated analogue or ISDN modem that provides global application options.
External modems (ISDN, GSM, analogue) are simply connected to the RS232 interface. Access to product networks behind the router is granted to authorised users only. Thus it is possible to conceal connected plant or machinery behind a single IP address. That considerably minimises time and effort for installation work.
Due to the integrated modem (analogue or ISDN) the routers can be accessed via the telephone network from anywhere in the world for configuration, administration, and monitoring purposes. The systems are reliably protected by an integrated firewall. Functions such as VPN (Virtual Private Network), DynDNS, Dial on demand and call back are supplied as standard.
