Remote industrial access from Throughput Technologies

June 2011 IT in Manufacturing

Throughput Technologies and Danish-based Secomea have signed an agreement to the effect that Throughput will represent the Secomea range of industrial remote access devices in the southern African market. These products allow systems engineers and equipment manufacturers secure and robust remote access to control systems for monitoring or configuration purposes.

The SiteManager 3129 and 3134 are off the shelf components in the Secomea remote device management solution range, which in combination with Secomea’s GateManager and LinkManager, ensure unified, uninterrupted and secure access to remote devices. The SiteManagers are DIN mountable appliances for installation in the machine control panel to provide remote access to all the equipment in the panel, as well as other equipment that may be accessible via one of its Ethernet ports.

The SiteManager 3129 establishes access to the Internet through the firewall of the existing wired network infrastructure, or wireless by installing a standard 3G/GPRS modem in the USB option slot. It supports up to 100 network enabled devices and also features two serial ports for support of serial enabled PLCs or HMIs. I/O is available on the 3129.

The 3124 also establishes access to the Internet through the firewall of the existing wired network infrastructure, and for the isolated device network, a 4 port switch is included that can be configured alternatively as 4 separate device networks. I/O ports for PLCs, HMIs and for controlling remote access or for submitting alarms via the GateManager have also been included.
