• Automatic response time-out calibration Every Modbus slave device has a recommended response timeout value, based on the required computation time as specified by the device manufacturer. However, manually obtaining and setting these values for every device is difficult and time-consuming. The MGate MB3000 eliminates this difficulty with a patent-pending feature that automatically determines and sets each device's response timeout value.
•Multiple masters across different Modbus networks
The MGate MB3000 supports 16 simultaneous TCP masters with up to 32 simultaneous requests allowed from each master. For ASCII and RTU masters, the MGate allows up to 32 different IP addresses to be defined as slaves. •Smart routing
Other Modbus gateways require a separate socket connection for each serial port, making them useless for TCP masters that can only open one connection. The MGate MB3000 supports smart routing, where only one socket connection is used to control slaves on every serial port.
MGate Manager is designed for configuration and monitoring of MB3000 gateways. The utility is easily customized to use the language of your choice.
