With the rise of IIoT and Industry 4.0, production systems are moving towards a future where all devices are seamlessly connected. Data from all production processes needs to be available in real-time. This means all these systems need to be connected to a centralized management system. However, integrating new network devices into existing infrastructure is a big challenge. Performing IP configurations is complex and error-prone, and security vulnerabilities always remain a concern.

 

Moxa's NAT-102 Series Network Address Translation (NAT) devices are designed to simplify the IP configuration of machines in existing network infrastructure and provide basic cybersecurity protection for factory automation environments.

Why the NAT-102 Series

 

User-friendly NAT functionality simplifies network integration
Hands-free network access control to protect internal networks
Extra-small footprint for easy placement in control cabinets
Industrial-grade design ideal for deployment in harsh environments

How the NAT-102 Series Can Help You

Devices on the factory floor are generally isolated from the Internet. When connecting to an external control center, managing IP addresses for all these devices can be challenging due to a small pool of usable external IP addresses, and automation professionals being unfamiliar with IP configurations. As a result, when redesigning facility network connections for centralized management or when adding new machines, network administrators often encounter network disruptions caused by IP address conflicts.

 

System Integrators
