The MGate 5105-MB-EIP is an industrial Ethernet gateway for Modbus RTU/ASCII/TCP and EtherNet/IP network communications. To integrate existing Modbus devices onto an EtherNet/IP network, use the MGate 5105-MB-EIP as a Modbus master or slave to collect data and exchange data with EtherNet/IP devices. The latest exchange data will be stored in the gateway as well. The gateway converts stored Modbus data into EtherNet/IP packets so the EtherNet/IP scanner can control or monitor Modbus devices.
Also it is equipped with a microSD card slot. A microSD card can be used to back up both the system configuration and system log, and can be used to conveniently copy the same configuration to several MGate 5105-MP-EIP units. The configuration file stored in the microSD card will be copied to the MGate itself when the system is rebooted.
This device also provides a web console to make configuration easy without having to install an extra utility. Simply log in as an administrator to access all settings, or as a general user with read-only permission. Besides configuring basic protocol settings, you can use the web console to monitor I/O data values and transfers. In particular, I/O Data Mapping shows data addresses for both protocols in the gateway’s memory, and I/O Data View allows you to track data values for online nodes. Moreover, diagnostics and communication analysis for each protocol can also provide helpful information for troubleshooting.
The MGate 5105-MB-EIP has dual power inputs for greater reliability. The power inputs allow simultaneous connection to 2 live DC power sources, so that continuous operation is provided even if one power source fails. The higher level of reliability makes these advanced Modbus-to-EtherNet/ IP gateways ideal for demanding industrial applications.
