Industrial Ethernet gateways for upgrading or retrofitting
Moxa's MGate 5105-MB-EIP and MGate 5102-PBM-PN industrial Ethernet gateways are designed for transparent connectivity solutions and can automatically scan devices and have built-in Ethernet cascading.
Moxa's MGate 5105-MB-EIP and MGate 5102-PBM-PN industrial Ethernet gateways are designed to provide simplified, versatile and transparent connectivity solutions for upgrading or retrofitting existing networks.
The MGate 5105-MB-EIP is purpose-engineered for the management of Modbus field devices connected to an EtherNet/IP master device, such as PLCs or SCADA networks, while the MGate 5102-PBM-PN gateway provides a communication portal between Profibus devices and the Profinet host. Deployment of either gateway achieves a uniform interface and application experience regardless of which protocol the network device supports, giving engineers greater flexibility in device selection and ensuring robust interoperability.
Both the MGate 5105-MB-EIP and the MGate 5102-PBM-PN come equipped with user-friendly diagnostic and I/O data monitoring tools to simplify troubleshooting, and are housed in DIN-mountable, rugged metallic casings that will withstand harsh industrial environments.
Shared features of the new gateways include:
- Automatic scan of devices, and easy configuration configuration via web or Windows utility
- microSD card for configuration and system log backup
- Built-in Ethernet cascading for easy wiring
- Complete packet analysis and diagnosis information for maintenance
- Redundant dual DC power inputs and relay output supported
- -40 to 75°C wide operating temperature models available
- Supports Moxa's MXview industrial network management software via the MXview Plug-in

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
