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.

In Conversation with Antonio Neri, President & CEO – Hewlett Packard Enterprise & Salil Parekh, CEO – Infosys

Hear the CEOs of Infosys & HPE discuss the current crisis and how it has accelerated the need for digital transformation for their clients. Connectivity at the Edge, right mix of hybrid cloud, ability to extract data faster than ever before… these are just some of the contributions that HPE and Infosys make to our clients’ digital transformation journey.

The MGate 5105-MB-EIP is an industrial Ethernet gateway for Modbus RTU/ASCII/TCP and EtherNet/IP network communications with IIoT applications. To integrate existing Modbus devices onto an EtherNet/IP network, the MGate 5105-MB-EIPcan be used as a Modbus master or slave to collect data and exchange data with EtherNet/IP devices. The MGate 5105-MB-EIP Series collects EtherNet/IP and Modbus RTU/TCP data for the cloud solution.
