Centralized remote data management for SCADA, PLCs

Product Exclusive: Are you still using legacy dial-up or radio modems to pull data? eWon introduces eFive, its new centralized remote management solution, providing an integrated, open solution for SCADA and PLCs.


eWon introduced eFive, its new centralized remote management solution, providing an integrated, open solution for SCADA and PLCs. Courtesy: eWonWith eFive, eWON is aiming at a new market: scalable centralized remote management via SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition). These remote management systems are used to process a large number of measurements in real time and to control technical installations remotely. For decades, legacy radio and dial-up modems have been used to connect remote sites with the central station. Increasingly, utilities are challenged with limited bandwidth, difficult maintenance, and expansion difficulties when using legacy modem systems.. eFive allows infrastructure managers to have permanent secure connections (VPN) between the SCADA and the remote sites using public networks at reasonable costs.

“With eFive, we are addressing the water and renewable energies markets such as biogas, photovoltaic, and wind power,” explained Serge Bassem, CEO and co-founder of eWon. The eFive product can serve up to 100 remote sites.

An integrated, open solution

eFive opens up new and interesting prospects for all PLC (programmable logic controllers) and SCADA integrators working on remote management projects. Previously, remote management and connectivity solutions for distant sites were complex, requiring major financial, resource, and information communications technology (ICT) investments. The eFive hardware changes the paradigm providing a cost competitive and scalable technology to add secure centralized remote management via SCADA.

Pierre Crokaert, CTO and co-founder of eWON, said, “The connection is easy to set up, irrespective of the brand of SCADA or controller. This can also constitute a financial advantage for the customer.”
