MOXA prioritizes MGate MB3000 Modbus gateways

Brea, CA, May 7, 2007 — MOXA announced that advanced models in the MGate MB3000 series of Modbus gateways series feature a priority control function that allows special or critical requests to bypass the strict, first-come-first-serve communication structure of Modbus. Users may assign first priority to specific requests, port numbers, or IP addresses, giving integrators valuable flexibility in handling a system’s requirements. All models in the MGate MB3000 series feature auto-calibration of response timeout, smart routing, support for multiple TCP masters, and a utility that supports multiple languages. Advanced models also feature a serial redirector function, which enables data transmission between device ports. This allows the original serial master to continue controlling slaves on another device port while monitoring is performed from the TCP network. Modbus RTU/ASCII systems can now add Modbus TCP monitoring and control without disrupting the original system architecture.The basic models in the MGate MB3000 series have an MB3x80 designation and can be ordered now from authorized distributors. Advanced models have an MB3x70 designation. Advanced models will be available in June. MB3x70 Features:

  • Easiest way to combine Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU/ASCII networks
  • 16 simultaneous TCP masters supported for maximum compatibility
  • Priority control for critical commands
  • Smart routing and serial redirector to help preserve existing architecture
  • Simultaneous serial and Ethernet masters supportedAbout MOXAMOXA manufactures device networking products for industrial automation.
