With the advent of internet in our lives, there are a lot of tasks that have been simplified for all of us. Now more and more automation is being handled via remote communication whether it’s from the office or from the comfortable seat of your home. PLC remote access lets you see the office computer screen and work with it at home, just as if you are sitting in front of it. PLCs have made it easy for you to handle tasks such as monitoring via a website to determine the condition of a machine or check other statistics.

With Easy Remote Access, you can control remote computer securely and transfer files via the Internet or LAN. The program will display the remote computer's desktop on your local screen and will allow you to use your mouse and keyboard to control that PC remotely. In simple words, with the help of this program, you are able to operate a remote PC just as if it is in front of you, from wherever you are, no matter what is your actual location.

With the built-in file transfer feature, you are able to transfer files between the computers. Also with remote access, you can restart and shutdown a remote PC, lock a remote mouse or keyboard, and do a lot of other tricky things. You are able to access your e-mail, files, programs, and network from anywhere.

A lot of security threats can evade in by attaching a programmable logic controller to a network with Internet access. Following are some tips regarding this factor:-

 

  • By selecting a controller that utilizes an embedded operating system not popularly used by the consumer public will help in keeping the PLC from being vulnerable to attackers using known exploits to the operating system because the knowledge base is much smaller.
  • Also a properly configured router will provide an effective protection for the control network from potential attacks. Most unsolicited requests for communication outside the local area network can be prevented by utilizing the lack of end-to-end connectivity.
  • When setting up a router, amount of open ports should be limited. For example, an open FTP port can lead to a possible exploit by uploading a program to override the operation of the controller. It must be remembered a port that is not being used regularly should never be opened.

By applying these simple techniques to modern day control networks, new options are available for the control design. Data collection over great distances is one of the best uses for this technology. With the latest PLC technology, almost anything that is to be accomplished next to the machine can be accomplished wherever there is an Internet connection.
