New Modbus/IEC 101-to-IEC 104 Protocol Gateways for Power Grid System Upgrade


Moxa launched the MGate 5114 series of protocol gateways, which supports Modbus RTU/ASCII/TCP, IEC 60870-5-101, and IEC 60870-5-104 protocol conversions, helping users establish communications between legacy and upgraded systems in power grid applications. In addition, the MGate 5114 protocol gateways come with several easy-to-use tools that not only help users finish configuration within five steps, but also make it easy for engineers to identify problems during troubleshooting.

Various Protocol Conversions

Moxa’s MGate 5114 Series comes with multiple protocol conversion combinations that can fulfill various communication requirements. It supports several commonly used protocols in power-grid applications, including Modbus RTU/ASCII, Modbus TCP, IEC 60870-5-101, and IEC 60870-5-104 protocols.

Easy Configurations Within Five Steps

Setting up protocol gateways between two different communication protocols can be a complex task. The MGate 5114 series of protocol gateways features an easy-to-use wizard tool that is designed with user-friendly interfaces, helping engineers to finish the configuration fast and easy within five steps.

Fast Troubleshooting

When errors occur in a system, finding root cases can be difficult from different communication protocols. The traffic monitoring tools and complete diagnostic information for both Ethernet and serial data that the MGate 5114 supports can make the troubleshooting fast and easy.
