Moxa MGate Industrial Ethernet Gateway Wins Engineer’s Choice Award

Brea, California, March 3, 2015—Moxa, a leading manufacturer of industrial networking products, is pleased to announce that the Modbus to EtherNet/IP Industrial Ethernet Gateway is the winner of the Control Engineering 2015 Engineers' Choice award, in the Network Integration — Network Hardware category. 


As described in the February 2015 issue of Control Engineering, the MGate’s flexible design allows for multiple configurations, and supports scanner and adapter modes for EtherNet/IP, as well as master/slave or client/server for Modbus. When it comes to configuration and setup, all that is needed is a computer with an Ethernet port and web browser. In addition, the gateway features a microSD card slot for configuration backup and recovery. When a microSD card is installed at power-up, the configuration stored on the card is copied to the gateway, after which it is ready for operation.


The MGate 5105-MB-EIP connects EtherNet/IP devices and equipment with Modbus TCP and ASCII/RTU. “We spent a lot of time thinking of new ways for an industrial Ethernet gateway to make life easier for users and network operators. We believe that the MGate 5105-MB-EIP is a uniquely convenient, powerful, and dependable Ethernet gateway. We’re enormously proud that our hard work in the MGate has been recognized by the industrial experts at Control Engineering,” said ­­Sean Chen, Moxa Product Manager.
