The dedicated services enable quick connection to a single remote machine, in addition to advanced projects including multiple installations and users. 

HMS has also launched a new Netbiter EasyConnect gateway (EC310) which is able to communicate via Ethernet only.  

Netbiter is a cloud-based solution for remote management of equipment such as power generators, PLCs, sensors, tanks etc. Users simply connect a Netbiter gateway to their equipment and log in to the online data center Netbiter Argos, where they are able to access their devices online. 

Netbiter now includes three different services: Remote Access: This is now included free with a Netbiter gateway. It opens up a secure tunnel to a PLC or machine, enabling configuration, programming or debugging of almost any industrial device from any location. Users utilise their regular configuration software just as they would if they were on site.

View and Control: It is also supplied free of charge with a Netbiter gateway. It allows users to manage a single installation remotely. Online dashboards, alarms and trend graphs provide full insight from any location.

Manage and Analyse: This is a subscription-based service for large-scale, multiple installations that have several users. Users are able to customise the Netbiter Argos interface and integrate data into their own system with the Netbiter Argos API.

Commenting on the new additions, Henrik Arleving, product line manager at HMS Industrial Networks, said: “With this new service offering, we take another step in making it easier for our customers to access their field equipment online. We can now offer a quick and easy solution for monitoring a single installation online as well as powerful multi-site management with multiple users for larger installations. Netbiter can now meet even more demands for putting field equipment online, realizing the Internet of Things.”

HMS can also now offer a new gateway – the Netbiter EC310 –which sends data from the remote site via Ethernet only. This complements the EC350, which communicates both via the mobile phone network (3G/GPRS) and via Ethernet.
