M.A.C. Solutions has launched a software for eWON remote access VPN routers that makes data collection easier, faster and more secure than ever.

Fetch Data Collector is a software package that is designed specifically to collect historical data from the data storage memory within the eWON Flexy and eWON 4005CD remote access VPN routers. The software can be configured in a three-step process with minimum technical knowledge required and minimal configuration within each eWON device.

Whilst maintaining the highest levels of data security and HTTPS encryption, Fetch Data Collector can connect with any number of remote machines, via the Talk2M Remote-Connectivity Cloud service. Once connected, Fetch Data Collector can collect data either direct from each eWON VPN Router, or from the intermediate storage in the Talk2M cloud, called DataMailbox.

Alternatively, Fetch Data Collector can be configured to collect data on a local basis, from locally connected eWON devices. This is designed for end-users, who wish to store production data in local machines and then archive the data into a centralised data storage, for later analysis.

Data collected can be stored to either ODBC databases or a series of CSV files, with fully customisable file formats and naming conventions. This ensures maximum compatibility with third party software, such as historians, analytical tools and IoT (Internet of Things) connectivity environments.

Redundancy is achievable too, with multiple Fetch servers able to collect data independently from the same eWON devices.

What is eWON + Talk2M?

eWON + Talk2M is a Remote-Access solution which provides a secure, reliable method, to connect with machine control devices (PLCs, HMIs, etc), anywhere in the world, across the Internet. Launched in 2006, there are now more than 100,000 installations and machines that use this solution. The eWON + Talk2M solution consists of 2 elements: the eWON remote-access VPN Routers and the Talk2M cloud-based connectivity service.

The eWON remote-access VPN Routers are packed full of features that are powerful and valuable for machine manufacturers and automation systems integrators, including real-time PLC monitoring, e-mailing capabilities, customisable web-server pages, scripting engine, data and event logging. Talk2M is the groundbreaking, cloud-based, Internet-connectivity service that works with the eWON VPN Routers, and is free to use, in its basic form. It revolutionises remote-access for machines and process plant, by overcoming the typical IT and security obstacles which are inherent within other solutions.

Audrius Asadauskas, Lead Application Engineer at M.A.C. Solutions commented: "With the eWON and Talk2M infrastructure available, Fetch Data Collector is able to connect through a Talk2M account into any eWON router anywhere in the world, to "fetch" the data via a secure HTTPS connection. The software then simply pulls the most recent data, accumulated since the previous collection, and stores this on the local drive in a CSV format. Equally, data can be stored directly in ODBC compliant data sources such as Microsoft SQL Server or MySQL. Fetch provides very flexible file mapping and is able to accommodate any third party software that can parse such CSV or database files."
