Configure machine automation quickly and conveniently
The u-remote web server speeds up start-up and maintenance work
Quick and error-free start-up is becoming increasingly important in the area of modern machine construction. Process sequences need to be simulated before the final machine commissioning, and decentralised I/O solutions need to be tested for correct functioning. Inputs and outputs need to be checked to ensure that they perform correctly, and configurations need to be implemented and parameters set. These tasks are usually performed using special software tools, which are used to test the performance of the application and to check that the remote I/O station has been installed correctly. These tools are also used to diagnose and locate process errors during subsequent operation, in order to ensure that repairs are carried out as quickly as possible and without any long downtimes.
With u-remote, powerful software for start-up, status monitoring and error diagnosis is already integrated in the I/O system. The software is accessed via the web server installed on the
u-remote with web server 2.0 allows for particularly quick, simple and money-saving system parameterisation before the machine has even been started up
fieldbus coupler, making it accessible via any standard Internet browser. The I/O station can be parameterised before a control unit is even connected, and status information and diagnostic and process data can easily be accessed on the station. Settings can also be directly changed, tested and stored for subsequent series installations.
u-remote makes it really easy to start up, parameterise and carry out diagnostics on the remote I/O station via an Internet browser. It is a particularly time and cost-efficient system, and there is no need for any special hardware or software.
Easier automation, quicker start-up
A comprehensive range of system tests can be carried out before a machine has even been commissioned, which helps prevent installation errors. The start-up process is supported by a wide range of simulation and forcing functions. Reasons for malfunction can be identified and rectified quickly thanks to the integrated diagnostic functions.
The new web server design stands out thanks to its extremely user-friendly operation. The clear structure makes it easy to access all of the system functions, and the swype functionality makes for simple navigation on mobile touchoperated devices.
Simpler installation tests
The option to force inputs and outputs means that processes and procedures can be simulated even if a PLC is not connected, thus allowing for multiple work steps to be performed in parallel. This significantly reduces the amount of time required prior to machine start-up, while also allowing for installation errors to be identified at an early stage.
Quick series configuration
The parameterisation of your u-remote station can be stored as a file and then uploaded in order to be transferred to other u-remote stations. This significantly reduces the configuration time required for series production, while also preventing input errors. Useful tool tips help you work out what information to enter.
Status monitoring and diagnostics
Whether on site via USB or via remote access with a fieldbus interface – the u-remote web server means that you can access system status information or diagnostics results at any time. The information can be easily viewed via web browser without the need for any special hardware or software, which helps to create transparency and to make error diagnostics and rectification easier.
