Mobile remote maintenance tool for machine control How you can reduce your travel expenses and downtime

You know the situation: unforeseen problems come up with the machine control and you need an expert's advice on site. It often takes an expert longer to arrive than planned due to illness, staff shortages, and entry regulations—in the worst case scenario, the machine is at a standstill until then. In addition to travel expenses, there are also financial losses due to the decreased productivity. This is why HYDAC has developed a mobile remote maintenance solution in various versions that saves you time and money.

Always have your specialists at hand – the HYDAC Remote Service Case (plus)

Rely on our remote maintenance tools for repair, maintenance, optimization, and diagnostics. The advantage: a specialist is no longer required on site—when the HYDAC remote maintenance tool (RSC / RSC+) is sent out to you, your machine control system can immediately start being analyzed as if the service technician were on site. It's even possible to directly connect to sensors with the HYDAC RSC+.

It's time for efficient service & less downtimeQuick help with maintenance and service calls

Software updates, error analysis, long-term diagnoses, and machine repair and maintenance often require a specialist's assistance. It's often not easy to get one of these coveted appointments due to today's skill shortages. In addition, large physical distances make it difficult to intervene quickly. While you're trying to make an appointment, the machine is working at reduced productivity—resulting in significant losses in performance and costing you money.

These are avoidable costs because with the HYDAC remote maintenance tool, your dedicated specialist can access the machine control system wherever they are, without having to jump on an airplane. Our remote maintenance tool is sent out instead—it's easy to start up and this can be done in just seven steps. This results in short response times, minimized travel expenses, and increased system availability.

Mobile plug & play remote maintenance toolRobust design—pre-programmed for direct use

No more waiting for an expert to visit in person—with our robust remote maintenance tool, specialists get direct access to your machine control system and can help you quickly and easily. An encrypted VPN connection certified to ISO 27001 between the specialists and your machine control system provides the necessary cyber security. Our remote maintenance tool is also ready for use even without a functioning power supply thanks to an optional battery pack. So there's nothing standing in the way of professional remote maintenance.
