Easily Manage Your PROFIBUS Devices via Modbus TCP

PROFIBUS-to-Modbus TCP gatewayTaipei, Taiwan, December 10, 2012—Moxa is pleased to release its MGate 5101-PBM-MN PROFIBUS-to-Modbus TCP gateways series with PI certification. The MGate 5101-PBM-MN gateway features enable bridging PROFIBUS devices (PROFIBUS drives or meters) to Modbus TCP master (SCADA or PLCs) with ease. In addition, its rugged design with optional built-in optical isolation, and -40 to 75°C wide-temperature operation, ensures reliable performance for use in industrial applications such as oil/gas, power, process automation and factory automation.


According to Jun Chuang, product manager for Industrial Ethernet Gateways, “As a networking expert, we always try our best to keep providing an effortless and cost-efficient solution in assisting our customers to remote monitoring field devices with different protocol. Through Moxa’s gateway solutions, customers can easily perform configuration via an innovative AutoScan function in one easy click and online MGate monitoring tool.
