Direct Access to the Cloud via Touch Panel

With tci Web panels of XS-series  the tci cloud portal, we offers a suitable solution that is not only easy to use, but also offers high data security and low costs.

 

IoT for Retrofitting

The webpanels are parameterizable for IoT suitable buildings with minimum effort. Using the reliable cloud services, all required data is available for retrieval in the internet. You don’t need any additional hardware.

All of the webpanels operating systems have access to the relevant data range via these protocols. You don’t need to change anything on the PLC program itself, so the warranty of the equipment is not restricted.

Following connections are available for the user:

  • CodeSys WebVisu (Webserver auf SPS)
  • WAGO/Beckhoff über CGI.BIN (Webserver auf Panel)
  • S7-ISOTCP (Webserver auf Panel)
  • ModbusTCP (Webserver auf Panel)
  • OPC (OPC-Client auf Panel)
  • VNC (über VNC-Client auf Panel)

Remote maintenance

The web panels provide functions to maintain the system remotely. The access can be provided via default browser (HTML5) through a TSL-secured connection. The remote maintenance can be carried out through every internet enabled terminal. Additional drivers or special plug-ins are not required.

  • same “look and feel” through remote maintenance as through local operating panels
  • values can be viewed and parameters can be set 
    (a protection against unauthorized changes is integrated)
  • no changes in network infrastructure required
  • connection establishment is done using a secure web portal

Integrated Cloud Services

Besides controlling and operating decentrally, data can be stored in the web portal. The Cloud Servicesenable to select and process the collected data via superordinated MES or ERP systems. For activating, there is a data logging function on the PLC panels, which can be parametered if necessary.

  • any data point can be selected
  • CSV files are stored in the web portal automatically
  • customized interfaces and protocols are possible
  • many PLC panels can be used via one account

Data security

  • connection from service center or ERP clients to the portal is established through “https”
  • coding with TLS1.2
  • no changes on the firewall required
  • no special ports, which could possibly be attacked, need to be opened
  • data, which is stored in the cloud, can be encrypted optionally
  • user management including user, user groups and scalable access rights
