Optimizing PLC Network Deployment with Moxa's Industrial Ethernet Solutions

Taipei, Taiwan, March 25, 2013—Moxa, a leading provider of industrial Ethernet solutions, recently announced a selection of automation-certified profiles for its family of industrial Ethernet switches and industrial Ethernet gateways that can be easily integrated into PROFINET, Ethernet/IP, and Modbus TCP networks. With a combination of high network performance, simplified configuration and manageability, and maximum deployment flexibility, Moxa’s industrial Ethernet solutions can optimize performance, efficiency, and flexibility of PLC networks, ideal for any large-scale SCADA monitoring systems with PLC system extension or network upgrading needs.

Moxa’s industrial Ethernet switches and gateways can easily provide reliable connections between SCADA and network controllers, and are enabled with industrial protocol stacks such as Modbus TCP, PROFINET I/O, and Common Industrial Protocol (CIP™) for device monitoring on SCADA systems.

“According to recent IMS Research reports, EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, and Modbus TCP account for roughly 65 percent of all industrial Ethernet deployments worldwide. To provide ideal solutions for this current industry trend, Moxa now offers a selection of industrial Ethernet switches and gateways to optimize the convergence of industrial automation systems with many additional benefits,” states Gary Chang, product manager.

Moxa’s plug-n-play PROFINET / EtherNet/IP / ModbusTCP switches feature fast booting in less than 10 seconds, network redundancy recovery in under 20 milliseconds, full status parameters for SCADA/PLC communications, and over 200 industrial-grade models for application flexibility to ensure an optimized network performance, efficiency, and reliability.

Moxa’s industrial fieldbus-to-Ethernet gateways, including PROFINET gateways, EtherNet/IP gateways, and Modbus gateways, are easy to use and maintain with auto-detection technologies and user-friendly MGate Manager Utility. The robust housing and wide-temperature operation enable MGate gateways to provide maximum reliability for field-layer applications of PLC/SCADA systems.
