Moxa - 2 port serial-to-Ethernet Modbus gateway, RS232/422/485 TCP to serial ASCII/RTU, DIN rail, 25KV surge, 0 to 60¡C operating temperature
The MB3170 and MB3270 are advanced Modbus gateways that provide maximum flexibility for integrating industrial Modbus networks of all types and sizes. They are designed to integrate Modbus TCP, ASCII, and RTU devices in almost any master and slave combination, including serial master to serial slave, or simultaneous serial and Ethernet masters. A special priority control feature allows urgent commands to obtain immediate response. All models are ruggedly constructed, are DIN-rail mountable, and offer built-in optical isolation for serial signals as an option.
Integration of TCP masters without alteration to Modbus RTU/ASCII network or software
The MB3270 can integrate Modbus TCP with Modbus RTU/ASCII,without modifying the existing Modbus RTU/ASCII architecture or software. With the serial redirector function, a serial master can maintain direct access to serial slave devices through a specially mapped serial port. This allows the serial and TCP masters to access serial slaves simultaneously.
Cascading Ethernet ports for easy wiring
Advanced models of the MGate™ MB3000 series have two Ethernet ports to make network wiring easier. Dual Ethernet ports allow users to string multiple Modbus gateways together using standard RJ45 Ethernet cables, eliminating the need for a separate Ethernet switch.
Redundant power inputs
Advanced models of the MB3000 series have dual power inputs for greater reliability. The power inputs allow simultaneous connections to two live DC power sources, so that continuous operation is provided even if one power source fails. The higher level of reliability makes these advanced Modbus gateways ideal for demanding industrial applications.
Warning by relay output
A relay output is provided for the Ethernet link and power input status. The relay output gives maintenance engineers an additional tool for troubleshooting and maintenance.
