Moxa has introduced its Auto-Device Routing function, a leading-edge technology that speeds up the configuration of a large number of Modbus devices.
When a lot of Modbus devices need to be monitored and controlled, engineers usually have to spend a lot of time planning the topology of these devices and segmenting them into different subgroups. Engineers are also weighed down by the mundane task of keying in hundreds of Modbus slave IDs to set up each Modbus gateway’s slave ID routing table. Moxa’s patent-pending Auto-Device Routing function only requires a single click to help the gateway detect which serial port is connected to a target Modbus device, allowing it to automatically dispatch a Modbus request to the correct serial port. It makes the configuration and maintenance of a Modbus gateway’s slave ID routing table so simple, saving significant time and costs as engineers no longer need to manually create the Modbus slave ID routing table anymore, eliminating possible human error in the process. Furthermore, it eliminates the effort needed to double-check the actual connections at field sites. There is no need to refer to a historical Modbus slave ID routing table when adding or removing Modbus devices, saving time and effort.
This patent-pending Auto-Device routing function is a feature of the Moxa’s MGate MB3000 Series, which consists of high-performance Modbus gateways with 2,4,8, or 16 serial ports. The MGate MB3000 Series also supports routing by IP address or TCP port, which is suitable for engineers who want to monitor field devices in segments.
