Courtesy: MoxaMoxa'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

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
