  • Remote PLC?

    I have recently heard the expression ‘Remote PLC’ used for what was really M2M (Machine to Machine), whilst everything is in the eye of the beholder it seems to me that this expression undersells the vast opportunities which are realised through M2M.

  • Beyond the site network?

    Although M2M is primarily designed to bring remote unmanned assets under better monitoring and control there is an application of M2M where an asset is on site but beyond the reach of the plant network such as the top of a chimney, water abstraction and effluent stations. Using M2M provides a readymade solution: the communication to the associated cloud data repository and information processing is via 2/3G data telephony, eliminating the need for an expensive installation of a further plant network extension.
