Do you have legacy devices that you need to connect to your modern industrial network? Moxa has the answer with their Easy 3 solution for device connectivity.

With the advent of Industrial Internet of Things, automation and control engineers are challenged with connecting older equipment to Ethernet networks. This older equipment can be challenging to network and to maintain remotely. Luckily Moxa has a wide ranging portfolio of serial device servers, industrial protocol and remote I/O gateways to connect a variety of devices such as VFDs, PLCs, and sensors to industrial Ethernet networks.

Major Challenges in Smart Automation

On many factory floors devices support a mixture of fieldbus and Ethernet protocols. Some devices like sensors and RFID are often serial based. Others speak standard industrial protocols like Modbus or DNP3. Most automation engineers need to connect these devices to Ethernet-based SCADAs and HMIs to control and monitor their operations.

When making devices interoperable, many automation and control engineers have a difficult time configuring and setting up their devices to communicate over Ethernet SCADAs. This is caused by devices using different industrial communication protocols.

Once equipment is connected, engineers need visibility of their network equipment to quickly, accurately and easily diagnose and troubleshoot any issues. In addition, many automation engineers are not familiar with IT network management tools like SNMP or command line interface.

Moxa's Easy 3 for Connectivity can help you overcome these automation challenges!
