Real-time KPIs and dashboards, displaying accurate data of shop-floor operations, give managers valuable insights as to when and wherethey need to adjust their production planning. Therefore, a resilient and reliable network that connects a large number of existing data sourcesfrom various systems is critical. Find out how to address the challenges in connecting various systems and managing large networks to perform remote monitoring.
The PT-G7828 modular switches provide up to 28 Gigabit ports, including 4 fixed ports, 6 interface module slots, and 2 power module slots to ensure sufficient flexibility for a variety of applications. The PT-G7828 Series is designed to meet evolving network requirements, including a hot-swappable module design that enables you to change or add devices without shutting down your device.
The multiple Ethernet modules (RJ45, SFP, and PoE) and power units (24/48 VDC, 110/220 VAC/VDC) provide even greater flexibility as well as suitability for different operating conditions. The switches support a full Gigabit platform that provides enough bandwidth to set up an Ethernet backbone. Certifications include IEC 61850 Edition 2 Class 2 to ensure high availability and wide usage.
The EDS-510A Gigabit managed redundant Ethernet switches are equipped with up to 3 Gigabit Ethernet ports, making them ideal for building a Gigabit Turbo Ring, but leaving a spare Gigabit port for uplink use. The Ethernet redundancy technologies, Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain (recovery time < 20 ms), RSTP/STP, and MSTP, can increase system reliability and the availability of your network backbone.
The EDS-510A Series is designed especially for communication demanding applications such as process control, shipbuilding, ITS, and DCS systems, which can benefit from a scalable backbone construction.
NPort® IA device servers provide easy and reliable serial-to-Ethernet connectivity for industrial automation applications. The device servers can connect any serial device to an Ethernet network, and to ensure compatibility with network software, they support a variety of port operation modes, including TCP Server, TCP Client, and UDP. The rock-solid reliability of the NPort® IA device servers makes them an ideal choice for establishing network access to RS-232/422/485 serial devices such as PLCs, sensors, meters, motors, drives, barcode readers, and operator displays. All models are housed in a compact, rugged housing that is DIN-rail mountable.
The ioLogik E1200 Series supports the most often-used protocols for retrieving I/O data, making it capable of handling a wide variety of applications. Most IT engineers use SNMP or RESTful API protocols, but OT engineers are more familiar with OT-based protocols, such as Modbus and EtherNet/IP. Moxa's Smart I/O makes it possible for both IT and OT engineers to conveniently retrieve data from the same I/O device. The ioLogik E1200 Series speaks six different protocols, including Modbus TCP, EtherNet/IP, and Moxa AOPC for OT engineers, as well as SNMP, RESTful API, and Moxa MXIO library for IT engineers. The ioLogik E1200 retrieves I/O data and converts the data to any of these protocols at the same time, allowing you to get your applications connected easily and effortlessly.
