The Industrial Router Data Collector

The Flexy range of router-gateways includes all the secure access functionalities of the Cosy range and offers in addition data collection and processing functionalities, paving the way for the development of advanced IoT services.

Data acquisition is done by digital linking with the connected PLCs and/or via its own I/O cards.

Like the Cosy, the Flexy benefits from the free Cloud services of Talk2M, the VPN platform.

You can easily establish connectivity with your own servers or with Cloud platforms from Microsoft, Amazon etc., via Talk2M (APIs) or directly (HTTPS, MQTT).
