Modbus gateways for control rooms, data centers
Moxa’s MGate MB3660 series of redundant Modbus gateways are designed to address the management of multiple devices in control rooms and data centers. Available in 8- and 16-port models, the MGate MB3660 allows administrators to establish communications with large numbers of new or existing RTU and ASCII serial devices across an Ethernet network. A single gateway is designed to physically manage up to 248 serial slave nodes for 8-port models or 496 serial slave nodes for 16-port models. This high-density porting eliminates the need for large numbers of low-port-density Modbus gateways, which come with the added burden of extra wiring and installing hardware and software one gateway at a time. Each RS-232/422/485 serial port can be configured individually for Modbus RTU or Modbus ASCII operation. Moxa MGate MB3660 gateways feature dual AC or DC power inputs to connect to a redundant power source and ensure reliable system performance, as well as dual IP addresses for hardware-based redundancy.
