Original Press Release:



MOXA Advanced Modbus Gateways to Debut In June



Brea, CA, April 3rd, 2007- A few weeks after introducing the MGate MB3000 series of Modbus gateways, MOXA announced that advanced models in the series will be available in June of 2007. MOXA has already received many inquiries worldwide for the MGate MB3000, which is designed to be configured in five steps.

All models in the MGate MB3000 series feature auto-calibration of response timeout, smart routing, support for multiple TCP masters, and a utility that supports multiple languages. The upcoming advanced models will feature a priority control function that allows special or critical requests to bypass the strict, first-come-first-serve communication structure of Modbus. Users may assign first priority to specific requests, port numbers, or IP addresses, giving integrators valuable flexibility in handling a system's requirements. The advanced models will also feature a serial redirector function, which enables data transmission between device ports. This allows the original serial master to continue controlling slaves on another device port while monitoring is performed from the TCP network. Modbus RTU/ASCII systems can now add Modbus TCP monitoring and control without disrupting the original system architecture.

The basic models in the MGate MB3000 series will have an MB3x80 designation and can be ordered now from authorized distributors. The advanced models will have an MB3x70 designation and will be available in June. For more information, please visit www.moxa.com or send an e-mail to usa@moxa.com.

MB3x70 Features:
o Easiest way to combine Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU/ASCII networks
o 16 simultaneous TCP masters supported for maximum compatibility
o Priority control for critical commands
o Smart routing and serial redirector to help preserve existing architecture
o Simultaneous serial and Ethernet masters supported
