With i-View, control engineers can remotely monitor and modify live data from programmable automation controllers on an EtherNet/IP or Modbus TCP/IP network. The app creates a secure cellular or 802.11 interface between the iPhone/iPad/iPod touch devices and the control system. For 802.11 plant-floor network access, the Wi-Fi function of the phone can be used in conjunction with the vendor's 802.11 Industrial Hotspot solutions. For remote applications such as pipeline and well-head monitoring, or where engineers require access from long distances, the vendor's Intelligent Cellular series can be used.
