Operate Eaton’s easy800 control relay remotely with new app
Published: 19 September 2013 - Rachael Morling
Eaton has launched the easyRemote display app – which can be downloaded for free from at: http://bit.ly/easyRemoteApp. Available on the Android operating system (for versions 2.2-4), the app enables users to display all the text and functions of the easy800 control relay via a standard smartphone and operate it remotely. Communication between the smartphone and the control relay is via Bluetooth.
The app enables users to communicate with the controller outside of the working area, thus not only increasing general user-friendliness but also enhancing safety.
Regardless of the operation required, such as: the showing of display text, the changing of the operating mode, the setting of date and time, the changing of function block parameters, the checking of circuit diagrams or minor programming – the easyRemote display app makes all these functions possible. It enables users to control and operate several machines efficiently with a smartphone at a distance of up to 10m.
All easy800 control relays are equipped with a Bluetooth adapter (EASY800-BLT-ADP). Each Bluetooth adapter has a unique address and an eight-digit PIN that serves as the security code for communicating with the smartphone, thus preventing any unauthorised access.
