Easy remote access to machines and systems

Increasing bandwidths, higher speed, more/better performance and lower costs are all opening up new possibilities for communication in industrial environments. Numerous ABP customers are already harnessing these potentials with the well-known Linksys router solution. But technical development is progressing: ABP is discontinuing its support for the Linksys router solution because the component no longer meets the current state of security technology.  It is all about careful logging of accesses – and their secure encryption.

ABP Induction has developed a secure, future-oriented solution to ensure that you are on the safe side when networking globally distributed systems, remote machines or mobile applications: the ABP digital Expert on Demand (dEoD) in conjunction with SCALANCE network components from Siemens.

Reliability through Siemens technology

In terms of the technical basis for networking the plant, this means: ABP will rely on Siemens technology in the future, and with a wide range of modems and routers, offers the ideal remote network connection via leased line, telephone, mobile phone or Internet – whether wired or wireless, IP-based or analog.

The IP-based network components of the SCALANCE M and SCALANCE S series protect remote networks and the communication between them against unauthorized access and data espionage with the integrated security functions firewall and VPN encryption. Moreover, the SINEMA Remote Connect management platform enables the highest degree of security and easy administration of communication connections.

Customers are now ready to start utilizing comprehensive remote services. In the future, ABP Service will provide them with support via Augmented Reality for service cases, enabeled to solve technical problems remotely. Everything is documented in the portal myABP and users always have an overview of all the machines and systems/ equipment.

The Industrial Remote Circle from ABP: Secure remote access to the system + ABP digital Expert on Demand

Using the IP-based network components from Siemens – SCALANCE M and SCALANCE S – ABP protects remote networks and the communication between them against unauthorized access and data espionage by means of the integrated security functions firewall and VPN encryption. Moreover, the SINEMA Remote Connect management platform enables the highest degree of security and easy administration of communication connections. The benefits are:

  • Flexible: can be operated by any ABP service engineer even when “on the road”
  • Higher availability of the system
  • Detailed logging of all accesses
  • Increased security through high encryption
  • Access only to the system network, not to the customer network
  • Upgrades / patches are carried out by the manufacturer Siemens
  • Proven industrial solution from an established German manufacturer
  • Independent of the existing PLC
  • The server is hosted and operated in Germany, locally in Dortmund

Remote access with SCALANCE M and S: This is what routers can do

SCALANCE M The SCALANCE M portfolio consists of industrial routers for wireless or wired access. Siemens products enable the efficient connection of stationary and mobile subscribers to a control center. Comprehensive security functions, such as firewall and VPN encryption, provide protection during data transmission.

SCALANCE S Industrial Security Appliances SCALANCE S provides secure access to globally distributed systems, machines and applications. Siemens devices protect automation cells and all devices without their own protective functions against unauthorized access such as espionage and manipulation.

Inverter hose replacement for more operational safety

High system availability, in conjunction with operational safety for employees and more efficient operation of the system – these are the key arguments for considering inverter hose replacement in metalworking companies. With ABP Complete Customer Care, users are on the safe side: Thanks to solid advance planning and reliable execution, the conversion can be carried out quickly and cost-effectively.

What are compelling reasons to replace a hose?

Systems often suffer from dirt deposits in their hoses, resulting in lower flow rates and possibly even thyristor failure. In addition, plasticizers volatilize from the hoses, making the hoses brittle and causing leaks. And, after five to six years, a hose replacement is necessary anyway according to the inverter operating instructions. It is also recommended following a longer period of plant downtime, which is something that is currently an issue for many companies.

Why makes this modernization step sense? Users receive higher plant availability, and the current state of the art technology is then also installed for greater safety. And they will be protected against further damage in the event of leaking hoses. Replacement is quick, inexpensive and uncomplicated: Once the order has been placed, our service team can respond at very short notice. The water must be drained and the system has been switched off prior to the appointment.

Inverter hose and more: Digital Expert on Demand

And, ABP’s service goes even further – even after the hose has been replaced: ABP Induction also offers repair, upgrade and overhaul services for systems from other manufacturers, giving users the opportunity to benefit from the company’s innovative approach and technical know-how when it comes to digitizing service: It’s about achieving even better system availability thanks to predictive maintenance and even faster service via ‘Digital Expert on Demand’ (dEoD). The core tool here is Augmented Reality: It makes it possible for ABP experts to see what the customer sees. He uses AR glasses, a tablet or simply a smartphone.
