- Easy hardware setup and configuration
Moxa MGate MB3180 is a 1 port industrial grade Modbus gateway designed for easy integration of Modbus TCP and RTU/ASCII networks. Modbus serial slave devices can be seamlessly incorporated into an existing Modbus TCP network, and Modbus TCP slaves can be made accessible to serial masters. Moxa MGate MB3180 can manage up to 31 serial slave nodes. The serial RS233/RS422/RS485 port can be configured for Modbus RTU or Modbus ASCII operation or even different baudrate, allowing both types of networks to be integrated with Modbus TCP within one package.
Moxa’s Auto-Device Routing function helps eliminate problems and inconveniences encountered by engineers who need to configure large numbers of Modbus devices. Moxa's Mgate just requires a single mouse click to set up a slave ID routing table and configure Modbus gateways to automatically detect Modbus requests from a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system. By removing the need to manually create the slave ID routing table, the Auto-Device Routing function saves engineers significant time and cost.
