Auto-Device Routing Dispatches Multiple Modbus Requests with One Click

Moxa’s Auto-Device Routing function helps eliminate many of the problems and inconveniences encountered by engineers while configuring a large number of Modbus devices. Only a single mouse click is required to set up a slave ID routing table and configure Modbus gateways to automatically detect Modbus requests from a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system. By removing the need to manually create the client ID routing table, the Auto-Device Routing function saves engineers significant time and costs.

An Award-Winning, User-Friendly Web Console and Windows Utility for Easy Configuration

Younger control systems engineers might not be so familiar with Modbus or experienced with a number of protocol communications issues. At Moxa, we spent a lot of time making sure our protocol gateways are easy to set up and use.

Moxa’s MGate gateways can be configured by a user-friendly web console that walks you through the entire setup process. All you need is a computer with an Ethernet port and web browser. Configuration by web console is so user-friendly that engineers have picked it as their favorite protocol conversion solution in a recent Control Engineering survey. As described in Control Engineering, when it comes to configuration and setup, all that is needed is a computer equipped with Ethernet and a web browser. No additional software is required, but a Windows-based utility is included at no additional charge for those who prefer doing the configuration offline. It’s no wonder the MGate gateway won the coveted 2015 Engineers’ Choice Award.
