Edge-to-Cloud Gateways

Feb. 20, 2023
Moxa’s new series of industrial gateways are designed to optimize data transfer from Modbus edge devices to Azure and AWS cloud platforms.

The new AIG-100 series of industrial-grade gateways from Moxa are designed to sup- port conversion and reliable transfer of data from Modbus TCP/RTU/ASCII devices to Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and MQTT cloud platforms. These gateways also support the Modbus TCP slave mode, enabling simultaneous transmission of data to a cloud platform and local SCADA systems.

According to Moxa, most edge systems require additional programming to process data. That’s why the Moxa AIG-100 series was designed to pre-process edge data and directly transfer mean- ingful data back to the application, such as on-site conditions, operational trends, and energy use. The gateways also support store-and-forward and datalogger functions to prevent data loss.

Built-in traffic monitoring and diagnosis tools enable troubleshooting of any communication issues for Azure, AWS, and MQTT as well as Modbus protocols. Moxa says these tools let engineers remotely access the gateway, identify the root cause, and bring operations back online.

A software wizard included with the gateway can be used to configure Moxa ioLogik remote I/Os and Moxa UPorts hubs, thereby eliminating complex driver installation and device setup for ease of connection with I/O and serial interfaces.
