World Class Technology Solution

Netbiter EC350 Gateway

 

The Netbiter® EC350 communication gateway is the hardware part of the Netbiter Remote Management solution. The gateway connects to your field equipment via several connection methods: Serial RS-232/485, Modbus RTU, Modbus-TCP or EtherNet/IP.

In addition, on-board I/O ports provides the option to connect sensors and additional equipment to the system.

 

SENDING YOUR DATA TO THE CLOUD

Once connected, the gateway automatically exchanges data over Ethernet to the cloud-based Netbiter Argos data center. Wherever your field equipment is located, you will be able to access equipment online by logging in to Netbiter Argos at www.netbiter.net using your regular web browser.

 

5-BAND 3G SUPPORT

The 3G communication provides increased performance compared to GPRS and also increases the geographical cellular coverage as it is possible to install the gateway where 3G is the only available network. With support for 5 different 3G bands, the Netbiter EC350 is designed to work in any geographical location.

 

FAST AND EASY DEPLOYMENT

Once your equipment and peripherals are connected, your initial configuration is saved within Netbiter Argos. This then makes it possible to deploy large-scale installations within minutes, by simply deploying the configuration to other Netbiter gateways.

 

KEEPING YOUR DATA SAFE

Netbiter EC350 offers unique technology for secure access to your industrial equipment located behind firewalls. The gateway communicates via Ethernet and eliminates the need for public, fixed IP addresses and complex VPN tunnels.

Connect and use with a Netbiter Argos Service 

The Netbiter Argos Services, ”View and Control” and ”Manage and Analyze” are bundled features within Netbiter Argos that are enabled once you have connected your equipment.

The "View and Control" service is included with the purchase of the gateway. For larger installations, or for users who wish to implement the Netbiter API into your own systems, the subscription based "Manage and Analyze" can be selected.   

 

 

Using an EC350 with View and Control

CONNECT

With View and Control you can use the Netbiter EC350 gateway for ONE user to connect to ONE site. The gateway automatically exchanges data via Ethernet, or cellular networks GSM/GPRS/3G to the Netbiter Argos data center.
 

VIEW AND CONTROL

By logging on to the Netbiter Argos data center at www.netbiter.net, you are presented with a host of "cloud management services" such as Dashboards, Alarm management, Trends and Reports, that enable you to remotely monitor and control (start/stop) your equipment in a fast, efficient and secure way. 
 

CONNECT TO ANY APPLICATION

The Netbiter EC350 connects to leading vendors equipment for Power Generators, UPS systems, telecom base stations, tank and waster/waster water monitoring equipment, Building and HVAC systems, industrial automation equipment and much more.

CONNECT

With Manage and Analyze you can use the Netbiter EC350 gateway with Multiple users and with Multiple sites. The gateway automatically exchanges data via Ethernet or cellular networks GSM/GPRS/3G to the Netbiter Argos data center.
 

MANAGE AND ANALYZE

By logging on to the Netbiter Argos data center at www.netbiter.net, you are presented with a host of "cloud management services" such as Dashboards, Alarm management, Trends and Reports, that enable you to remotely monitor and control (start/stop) your equipment. In addition, it also enables you to administrate users, fast deploy multiple sites, and even integrate the Netbiter (REST) API to your own systems and connect to 3rd party clouds such as ThingsWorx®.

Combining the EC350 Remote Management with Remote Access — Controller/Machine configuration

EC310 Remote Access

REMOTE MANAGEMENT AND REMOTE ACCESS

The time and cost savings with remote monitoring and controlling your connected equipment would be negated if you still needed to travel to the site and program, debug or configure the system Controller.

By simply toggling between Remote Management and Remote Access mode within Netbiter Argos, this can easily be solved. Enabling remote access establishes a secure communication tunnel to the serial and Ethernet ports on a Netbiter EC350 gateway and the Controller. 

This makes it possible to use PC-based software applications (such as Studio5000, RSLogix, Step7, TIA Portal, Unity PRO, GX Developer and more) to program, configure or debug any machine or industrial PLC, just as if being on site.
