Modern factories are comprised of complex equipment and subsystems that communicate via the Internet Protocol (IP) – the backbone of the Internet. The integration of new machines or subsystems can be compromised if they have a fixed range of IP addresses that conflict with other existing plant addresses or the overall addressing policy already in place. Contemporary Controls' CTRLink Skorpion IP routers address this issue – each machine or subsystem (which consists of multiple IP devices) connects to the LAN side of the router while keeping their same IP settings for the devices and the application, thus lowering installation costs and eliminating troubleshooting. The IP address for the WAN port on the IP router is the only setting that requires modification to join the factory network, allowing rapid integration and multiple machines to reuse the same configuration on the LAN side.
Maintain your factory-set IP addresses when integrating with the customer's IP network by using the Skorpion IP Routers. Reduce installation time, eliminate IP conflicts, and easily comply with your customer's IP requirements.
EIPR Routers – Fast, Secure Access
The EIPR links two 10/100 Mbps Internet Protocol (IPv4) networks — one network is the LAN; the other is the WAN — and passes appropriate traffic while blocking all other traffic.
EIGR Routers – Fast Speeds and Higher Data Throughput
The EIGR Gigabit IP Routers have features beyond our popular EIPR series, while retaining the EIPR's ease-of-use.
EIGR-C Routers – IP Protocol with Cellular Communication
The EIGR-C Gigabit IP routers offer the same capabilities as the EIGR with a built-in cellular modem for easy connectivity to cellular networks.
RemoteVPN – VPN Remote Access with IP Routers
RemoteVPN is a service offered by Contemporary Controls that allows systems integrators remote access to systems from the convenience of the systems integrator's home or office.
