Mobile remote maintenance tool for remote control of machines Reduce travel expenses and downtime with remote monitoring

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. Therefore, HYDAC has developed a mobile remote maintenance solution in various versions that saves you time and money. Read more.

Always have your specialists at hand: the HYDAC Remote Service Case (plus)Remote service tools for remote monitoring

Rely on our remote machine maintenance tools for remote monitoring and remote diagnostics that include repair, maintenance, and optimisation. The advantage: a specialist is no longer required on-site when the HYDAC remote maintenance tool (RSC / RSC+) is sent out to you for remote machine maintenance. Your machine control system can immediately be analysed by remote control 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 and less downtimeQuick help with maintenance and service calls via remote monitoring and remote diagnostics

Software updates, error analyses, long-term diagnoses and machine repair and maintenance often require a specialist's assistance. It's often not easy to get one of these appointments due to 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 machine maintenance tool, your dedicated specialist can access the machine control system via remote control 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, minimised travel expenses and increased system availability.

Mobile plug and play remote maintenance toolRobust design and 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 via remote control 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. Therefore, there's nothing standing in the way of professional remote diagnostics and remote maintenance.

Our modular remote maintenance solution is available in various versions. Choose the model that best suits your individual situation. Whether it's with a USB, Ethernet or direct connection to sensors, we're happy to advise you.
