Moxa Inc. introduces the new MGate 5102-PBM-PN PROFIBUS-to-PROFINET gateways series.
Given the need in modern industrial manufacturing environments to connect all management processes, as well as control and field level devices to one network, operators are constantly seeking economical ways of connecting legacy devices to a network, especially solutions that leverage existing IT management technologies.
Moxa’s new MGate 5102-PBM-PN PROFIBUS-to-PROFINET gateways, which feature IT management tools to provide a second level of protection for automation networks, have been specifically designed to address this particular need.
Jun Chuang, product manager for Industrial Ethernet Gateways explains that Moxa’s MGate Ethernet gateways not only provide innovative technology that can bridge PROFIBUS devices (PROFIBUS drives or meters) to PROFINET masters (SCADA or Siemens PLCs) with ease, but also leverage IT management tools for effortless management.
Features such as a rugged design with optional built-in optical isolation, -40°C to 75°C wide-temperature operation, and microSD card for configuration backup in the MGate 5102-PBM-PN gateways ensure reliable performance in industrial applications such as oil & gas, power, process automation, and factory automation.
