The Talk2M is a cloud service for the field of industrial automation. It enables you to securely connect to remote Ewon routers, perform remote access operations and collect data from control systems connected to the routers. Using the Talk2M, you can remotely program and troubleshoot your PLCs as if you were on-site.
The Talk2M utilises the technology of VPN (Virtual Private Network) and tunnelling. This cloud service facilitates communication between users and their machines in such a way that data can be transferred seamlessly.
The Talk2M is available in two variations – the Talk2M FREE+ and the Talk2M PRO. The Talk2M FREE+ is free of charge, but supports only a limited amount of data transferred and only a single VPN connection at a time. The PRO version, which is a paid version, supports multiple connections at a time. It also enables you to grant various user permissions and increase the limit on data transferred if needed. Below you can learn more about the two versions and decide which would be more suitable for you.
When upgrading firmware, use the latest version of the eBuddy software.
