SCADADroid® is easily configured as VPN to allow simple yet secure remote communications. Once connected, the SCADADroid® allows viewing and collecting data remotely, such as on a SCADA system. Remote programming and troubleshooting of PLCs is also possible, potentially eliminating travel time for enhancements, diagnostics and correction of programming issues.
Simply drag the VPN certificate into the configuration box, point the SCADADroid® to where on the internet the VPN server is and then click on the enable button. It’s that simple. The SCADADroid® will then establish a connection and is ready for remote communications.
With SCADADroid®, you can set up your own VPN network which will require a server, or take advantage of Reonix’s VPN hosted solutions.
Either way, we can help you get going.
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network, and is a method of supplying a secure encrypted connection between devices on the internet.
SCADADroid® is a VPN client.This means that the SCADADroid® reaches out to the Server for the connection. This allows the use of standard phone plans similar to what you would use on any smart phone. The IP address of these plans are not public meaning that outside the cellular network, they cannot be reached. The VPN client establishes a virtual data tunnel back to the VPN server. The SCADA system or other user such as PLC programmer also connects to the VPN server, and now all the devices are on the same network.
