Moxa, a leading manufacturer of industrial networking products, is pleased to announce that the MGate 5105-MB-EIP EtherNet/IP to Modbus Industrial Ethernet Gateway is the winner of the
Control Engineering 2015 Engineers' Choice award, in the Network Integration — Network Hardware category.
As described in the February 2015 issue of Control Engineering, our MGate’s flexible design allows for multiple configurations, and supports scanner and adapter modes for EtherNet/IP, as well as master/slave or client/server for Modbus. When it comes to configuration and setup, all that is needed is a computer with an Ethernet port and web browser. In addition, the gateway features a microSD card slot for configuration backup and recovery. When a microSD card is installed at power-up, the configuration stored on the card is copied to the gateway, after which it is ready for operation.
Regarding the Moxa gateway product line, we offer an easy and reliable solution through our innovative fieldbus-to-Ethernet gateways with patented functionality for optional deployment. Moxa's MGate™ gateways not only connect serial devices to Ethernet, they also allow multiple connections and facilitate various Ethernet protocol communications, such as Modbus TCP and Ethernet/IP. What’s more, they can also be quickly and easily installed. Use Moxa's Industrial Ethernet Gateways to connect your industrial plant devices together.
