AutomationDirect adds Affordable Cloud Enabled Remote Access

Cumming, GA --- November 1, 2017 ... Remote access with cloud data logging options has been added to AutomationDirect's line of industrial communications products. StrideLinx provides secure access over the "industrial internet" to remotely connect to monitor and troubleshoot multiple field devices. StrideLinx easily and affordably cloud enables any Ethernet-ready device.

The StrideLinx platform consists of three types of VPN routers and two antenna sets (Wifi and cellular). 5GB monthly data bandwidth is included free and subscription options include additional bandwidth (up to 50GB) and cloud data logging. The StrideLinx platform allows unlimited users, and unlimited concurrent client and mobile connections.

Starting at $450.00, router options include Gigabit wired, cellular 4G LTE and WiFi. The AT&T 4G LTE model allows access to remote locations that do not have internet access. The WiFi model allows configuration of the router as an access point or client. All models have 4 LAN ports and a WAN port for optional Gigabit wired connections.

Cloud Data Logging subscriptions, starting at $15.00/month, provide added functionality to the StrideLinx remote access platform. These are not needed for the basic function of the VPN remote access, but can be added to enhance the value of the platform. Cloud data logging allows system data to be saved within the platform for a convenient, web-based live or historical record of system performance available whenever needed.

StrideLinx's Standard, Professional, and High Resolution Cloud Data Logging records data at 1,000, 5,000 and 20,000 samples per hour, respectively, with unlimited data tags, unlimited cloud storage for 7 years with active cloud logging license, unlimited number of data reports and easy-to-use data dashboards.
