More Natively Supported Network Devices
In addition to Moxa’s edge to core Ethernet switches, MXview 2.3 now supports wider range of Moxa products that includes NPort series device servers, ioLogik series I/O devices, and MGate series Ethernet gateways, with no separate plug-in kits necessary.
OPC Tag for Network Health Status Diagnostics
MXview 2.3 adds support for a new group OPC tag, which diagnoses the overall network health to be one of three states: Normal, Warning, and Critical. System operators can easily get an overall network summary on the SCADA through an OPC interface, empowering them to efficiently manage the network with minimal SCADA integration cost.
Collaboration with Third-Party NMS
Greater integration with third-party NMS is also now possible with MXview 2.3. Through SNMP traps, network operators can easily integrate MXview with their legacy network management software. In this way, users can take advantage of MXview’s superior management of industrial network devices, while still managing the overall network through their familiar NMS. “Our new integration functions allow MXview to provide visibility of the connected industrial network devices to an existing NMS, making MXview an especially powerful tool for complicated network structures,” said Yiwei Chen, product manager at Moxa Inc.
