    World's First Rack-Mounted Switches That Comply With the IEC 61850-3 Edition 2 Class 2 Standard

    Brea, California, Jan. 10, 2018—Moxa has launched the world’s first rack-mounted Layer 2/Layer 3 managed switches, PT-G7828/G7728, that comply with IEC 61850-3 Edition 2 Class 2 and IEEE 1613 Class 2. The switches’ 28 ports all support full Gigabit hardware time-stamping as defined in IEEE 1588v2. In addition, the switches offer selectable RJ45/SFP/PoE+ interfaces and dual LV/HV power modules to ensure suitability for a variety of applications.

    The IEC 61850-3 Edition 2 has been developed over many years based on feedback from deployments in substations. Adherence to this latest standard ensures that devices are rugged enough to be deployed in the harsh environments of substations. In addition, compliance with Class 2 of the Edition 2 standard ensures that if the device is subjected to high levels of EMI, shock, or vibrations, data will still be successfully transmitted.

    Moxa Introduces Protocol Gateways to Connect Modbus Devices to PROFINET or PROFIBUS Networks Effortlessly

    Brea, California, December 29th, 2017—Moxa’s newly launched MGate 5103 and MGate 5111 industrial protocol gateways enable fast and easy protocol conversions between Modbus devices and PROFINET/PROFIBUS-based SCADA systems and PLCs. These stand-alone protocol gateways also allow a distributed network architecture that maximizes flexibility and scalability. In addition, they also extend the lifetime of field devices, consequently reducing costs. With an all-in-one design, these gateways convert a variety of protocols, such as Modbus RTU/ASCII/TCP to PROFINET or PROFIBUS. Furthermore, the MGate 5103 and 5111 also help integrate EtherNet/IP PLCs into PROFINET or PROFIBUS systems.
