Additional subnets

Generally, you only have one subnet on location, also called IP range. This is depicted by the machine network below, where the subnet is 192.168.140.X. However, there may be situations where you have more than one subnet. For example when the PLC has 2 Ethernet ports, both with different subnets, where one is connected to the x500 IoT gateway (i.e. subnet 192.168.140.X) …

Wi-Fi hotspot

Wi-Fi variants of the x500 IoT gateway can simultaneously serve as a Wi-Fi client, where it connects to the internet via Wi-Fi, and as a WiFi hotspot. This Wi-Fi hotspot can be used to: Wirelessly access your PLC, HMI, or other hardware while you are on-site. Wirelessly access the internet. (view our “allow access to internet“-article) Wirelessly connect machine …
