Realize Your Ideal Communication System Upgrade

To continuously improve operational efficiency for power grids, systems upgrades are inevitable. While system upgrades come with a host of challenges, the biggest test is finding a solution that seamlessly integrates a new system into the current communication network with minimal costs and effort. Moxa's new protocol gateway, the MGate 5114, is the answer to many operators' prayers. The MGate 5114 is designed for power grid system upgrades, featuring multiple protocol conversion combinations for Modbus RTU/TCP and IEC 60870-5-101/104, easy configuration, and troubleshooting capabilities that simplify your operation and maintenance.

Three Key Points for A Suitable System Upgrade Solution


Minimal Development Time

Less Maintenance Efforts

When it comes to power grid system upgrades, the three key considerations for a suitable protocol solution are costs, time, and effort. Engineers usually tend to choose computing platforms because they offer flexible operations. However, this choice often proves to be time-consuming and costly during development, and later on with regards to maintenance. If your system upgrade is only a transition phase and simply requires establishing communication between two systems, then a standalone protocol gateway is the more suitable option for your system upgrade because it does not require additional programming effort. Its benefits include reducing working hours and fast project development. Moreover, a standalone gateway has already as useful diagnostic tool that comes in very handy to reduce maintenance efforts.

The Fast Track to Complete Protocol Conversion

Moxa's MGate 5114 protocol gateways are designed for communication systems in power grid applications. These protocol gateways not only provide ready-to-use protocol conversions but also useful tools to make future operation and maintenance easy, helping you to easily navigate the transition phase.

  • Various Protocol Conversions
  • Easy Configuration
  • Simple Maintenance

Various Protocol Conversions

No matter what the scenario of your system upgrade is, Moxa has solutions to convert between different protocol combinations. The MGate 5114 protocol gateways provide multiple conversion options between Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, IEC 60870-5-101, IEC 60870-5-104, thereby fulfilling a wide variety of requirements. Learn more

Easy Configuration

Even though protocol gateways support multiple protocol conversions, their setup can be complex and time-consuming without an easy-to-use and smart tool. Moxa's MGate 5114 protocol gateways help you complete the settings within five steps with user-friendly interfaces, getting your system connected to the network and in operation in no time.

Simple Maintenance

When an error occurs in the SCADA system, finding the root cause can be a difficult and complex task. Our MGate 5114 has built-in traffic monitoring that provides comprehensive information of all the raw data, helping you identify the problem quickly and easily. Moreover, our traffic monitoring tool can export the PCAP file so that you can import data into a Wireshark tool, based on your Ethernet and serial troubleshooting demands.
