I/O to IT/OT Protocol Conversion

Are you still looking for a protocol gateway to translate back and forth between OT and IT protocols? Moxa’s Smart I/O does just what you need by supporting the most often-used protocols for retrieving I/O data. Most IT engineers use SNMP or RESTful API protocols, but IA engineers are more familiar with Operational Technologies (OT) such as Modbus and EtherNet/IP. Moxa Smart I/O makes it possible for both IT and IA engineers to conveniently retrieve data from the same I/O device.

Moxa's multilingual Smart I/O speaks six different protocols, including:

  • Modbus/TCP
  • EtherNet/IP
  • Active tags (exceptions are actively pushed to MX-AOPC UA Server)
  • SNMP, SNMP traps
  • RESTful APIs
  • MXIO Library (Windows, Linux)

Data Preprocessing Optimizes Transmission

Moxa’s patented Click&Go Plus™ front-end control logic makes it extremely easy for even novice users to program Moxa’s data acquisition products. Use the programming-free Click&Go Plus report by exception method to greatly reduce the amount of data that needs to be transmitted and processed. Click&Go Plus control logic supports up to 48 rules with further upgrades to 8 conditions/actions. In addition, its graphical user interface provides 3 logic gates and 3 multi-layers, helping you build more powerful and efficient IO solutions. Once you finish setting up your Click&Go Plus logic rules, IOxpress’s easy-to-use simulation function can be used to find potential errors in your Click&Go Plus rules before uploading them to your online devices. Click&Go Plus supports active alarms and communication methods, including TCP, UDP, SNMP Trap, email, and CGI commands, making it extremely easy to integrate Click&Go with any monitoring system.

Simple IF-THEN-ELSE logic rules

With Moxa’s intuitive Click&Go IF-THEN-ELSE configuration format, even untrained engineers can configure an I/O device in just a few minutes.
