Flexy is OPC UA Ready

Securely enable your data from your Machines to your Factory Enterprise System.

OPC UA is a communication protocol for a secure and reliable exchange of data in industrial automation applications. OPC UA has the huge advantage of being platform-independent. It ensures the seamless flow of information among devices from multiple vendors. From sensors to cloud, OPC UA is fully scalable, object oriented and allows to use structures or models which makes governance and maintenance much easier.

PLC Data Acquisition

The Ewon Flexy is able to perform local data acquisition using the serial or Ethernet port. The data acquisition process is built around a tagged database in which each tag is associated with an I/O server. The Ewon Flexy is able to perform data acquisition with the following protocols: Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, Uni-Telway, EtherNet/IP, DF1, FINS TCP, FINS Hostlink, ISO TCP, PPI, MPI, Profibus, Mitsubishi FX, Hitachi EH, ASCII.


Continuous data logging and buffering can be performed on every tagname. Each tagname can be logged on a fixed interval or on change (with deadband). Ewon stores tag data values (+ timestamp) in its internal database (up to 1,000,000 timestamp points) for statistical analysis and later review (historical logging) or to analyze recent trends (real-time logging). The datalogging files can be easily retrieved by FTP, HTTP or as an email attachment.

Connection to IoT platforms

You can connect your Flexy to different clouds, including Talk2M. Direct connection to Azure IoT Hub (Microsoft) and AWS IoT (Amazon) are also possible, even if you want to use Talk2M, Ewon’s Flexy is certified to connect to these other clouds. Data is stored locally so you can get started today, choose an external cloud and you won’t be locked in.
