Moxa Protocol Converter Speeds Up Communication Programming
Taipei, Taiwan, September 20, 2007—Moxa is pleased to launch Moxa Protocol Converter
(or MPC for short), a software engine that runs on any of Moxa’s
ready-to-run embedded computers. MPC is designed to establish bi-directional
data stream channels between any two of the embedded computer’s
ports, and loads custom-written drivers (written in C) that audit
the data stream as it flows from one port to the other.
solution providers needed to write new code for each data stream
channel to ensure that data is transmitted successfully through
the channels for any dedicated device driver. With the MPC engine,
can easily establish a communication channel that connects any
combination of two channel ports without additional programming.
Moreover, port-to-port communication for any devices is
driver programmable. Users can program drivers either by
modifying an existing driver or adding a driver to a channel that
performs specific tasks. MPC is also easily configured with the Windows-based Moxa Device Manager (MDM), a remote management
tool for managing Moxa’s ready-to-run embedded computers on a local
area network (LAN). MPC supports Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU, Modbus ASCII, and RFC-2217. MPC also allows solution developers to add proprietary protocols and applications.
“MPC can solve the issues faced by most solution providers on how to
coordinate the flow of data between a wide range of devices and
Combined with the command-line free, Windows-based MDM agent interface,
users can easily control and monitor embedded computers at
remote sites,” said Dr. CF Lin, director of the Moxa Software R&D Division that develops software for Moxa's line of embedded computers.
MPC and MDM are value-added software engines developed by Moxa to help
solution providers speed up communication programming,
handle all remote devices from
one computer. Moxa Protocol Converter and Moxa Device Manager are provided free of charge with Moxa's embedded computers. Users can download the Moxa Protocol Converter package as well as Moxa Device Manager from Download Center at Moxa's website.
