One of the biggest advances in industrial manufacturing in recent years is the trend of connecting all management processes, as well as control and field level devices to one network, and operators are looking for economical ways of connecting legacy devices to a network, especially solutions that leverage existing IT management technologies. In answer to this need, Moxa is pleased to announce the release of the MGate 5102-PBM-PN PROFIBUS-to-PROFINET gateways, which feature IT management tools to provide a second level of protection for automation networks.
“Moxa’s MGate Ethernet gateways not only provide innovative technology that can bridge PROFIBUS devices (PROFIBUS drives or meters) to PROFINET masters (SCADA or Siemens PLCs) with ease, but also leverage IT management tools for effortless management,” said Jun Chuang, product manager for Industrial Ethernet Gateways. In addition, the MGate 5102-PBM-PN has a rugged design with optional built-in optical isolation, -40 to 75°C wide-temperature operation, and microSD card for configuration backup, ensuring reliable performance for use in industrial applications such as oil & gas, power, process automation, and factory automation.
