eWON eCatcher Mobile remote access app

eWON eCatcher is the software that eWON users utilise to establish a remote connection via an eWON router to their machine. HMS Industrial Networks has now launched a mobile version called eWON eCatcher Mobile, available for both iOS and Android.

By connecting an eWON Cosy or Flexy router to a machine, it is possible to access and control the machine via the cloud service eWON Talk2M. eWON users can then access Talk2M in an easy and secure way from a computer using the eCatcher software.

Today, many HMI and PLC manufacturers offer apps to connect to their devices. eCatcher Mobile is designed to complement these apps. It opens a secure tunnel to the remote machinery through the Talk2M cloud, enabling users to run any device manufacturers’ app and connect, just as if they were on-site.

After logging in to their eCatcher account, users validate themselves using Touch ID (or a PIN code), similar to most mobile banking applications. Just as in the desktop version, users will see all eWON routers connected to their Talk2M account. After clicking on the eWON they want to access, they are securely connected. When the eCatcher Mobile app is connected, it is possible to start native HMI apps from automation vendors. Examples include Sm@rtClient Lite from Siemens, Vijeo Design’Air from Schneider Electric and Remote HMI from Pro-face. eCatcher Mobile can also be used with VNC client apps.
