Cloud Connectivity Accelerates IIoT In Servers And Gateways

Moxa’s NPort IA(W)5000A-I/O Series wired or wireless serial device servers and MGate 5105-MB-EIP Series protocol gateways with ready-to-run cloud connectivity capabilities are helping manufacturers embrace the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Both offerings can collect multiple different field data structures, including serial, I/O, Modbus, and EtherNet/IP, transforming IIoT manufacturing operations by uncovering previously unobtainable insights. Powered by the MQTT messaging protocol, data is then transmitted securely to Microsoft Azure or other publicly and privately hosted cloud services. 

Moxa employed intuitive user interfaces and functions so that engineers can tap into the cloud for their IIoT deployments. Initial setup to full implementation can be completed within a few steps for immediate realization of efficiencies and cost savings. In addition, advanced diagnostics tools are supported to assist users in identifying connection issues so that a variety of field devices can share data in the cloud while protecting data integrity and network security.  

Moxa NPort IA5000A-I/O and NPort IAW5000A-I/O serial device servers integrate digital I/Os. A combination of digital I/Os make the device servers suited for a variety of industrial data acquisition applications. Both servers collect serial or I/O data for the cloud application.
