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
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
