Network Integration — Ethernet Hardware: The eWON Flexy Modular industrial M2M router that allows to access, collect, and monitor remote data. This is a Control Engineering 2015 Engineers’ Choice finalist. Courtesy: eWONIndustry today must cope with the constant and rapid development of communication technologies. Barely two years ago, the latest thing was 2G (GPRS), but now everybody talks about 3G or even 4G (LTE). This non-stop evolution of technologies goes against the grain in an industrial world that is conservative by nature. When a manufacturer approves and deploys a solution, it demands a continuity period of at least ten years.

eWON provides a solution that reconciles the conservative industrial world and the ever evolving communication technologies. eWON Flexy is the world's first modular industrial M2M router. With its concept of basic modules that can contain up to four expansion boards, Flexy offers its end-users an almost unlimited number of possibilities: from a simple serial, MPI, or Profibus gateway to Ethernet, to the WiFi LAN router with redundancy via 3G modem.

The new eWON Flexy router provides flexibility on several levels. Firstly, the WAN flexibility offers the user a choice of expansion boards to connect to the internet: LAN, RTC, WiFi, CDMA, 2G, and 3G. Moreover, the FIELD flexibility, which affects the choice of basic module and expansion boards to connect to devices: four-port Ethernet switch, RS232/422/485 serial ports, MPI/ Profibus port. Finally, eWON Flexy offers applications that make it easy to provide added-value services, such as data logging and alarm notification.
