Traditionally, accessing a remote HMI is a convoluted job. Security concerns and tricky network parameters setup makes it difficult for many HMI users. And even with proper setup, access is still quite limited, allowing connection to only one HMI within the remote network. However, with EasyAccess 2.0, this has all changed.
EasyAccess 2.0 provides a new way for accessing an HMI from anywhere in the world. With EasyAccess 2.0, it becomes very easy to monitor and troubleshoot HMI and PLC that are at a remote location as long as Internet connection is available. As EasyAccess 2.0 already takes care of network settings and addresses security issues, the user can connect easily to the HMIs as if they were on the local network. Moreover, it is possible to have access multiple HMIs within a network.
EasyAccess is also a remote supporting service. Consider the case in which a machine builder has sold his machine with a Weintek HMI installed, and one of his oversea customers is reporting a problem, which may or may not require inspection by an engineer. He can remotely connect to the HMI through EasyAccess 2.0 to investigate the problem. The customer needs no extra network configuration, just Internet connection. In addition, he can also update the HMI project, monitor the PLC by Ethernet Pass-through, or even update the PLC program.
