MBX Bridge

The MBX Bridge combines the functionality of all hardware-based bridging products currently offered by Schneider Electric into a single software product. It allows you to bridge Modbus, Modbus Plus and Modbus TCP networks, seamlessly routing messages between all MBX-compatible devices.

Schneider’s hardware bridge products, including the BM85 and BP85, are well-suited for many installations. However, due to the popularity of PCs and software applications in industrial environments, an increasing number of end users require software-based routing solutions in addition to dedicated hardware products.

The MBX Bridge answers these demands by offering many key features and benefits.

  • Because the MBX Bridge works with all MBX-compatible devices, it allows users to route messages in a wide variety of arrangements. These include configurations such as Modbus to Modbus Plus, Modbus Plus to Modbus Plus, Ethernet to Modbus Plus and Modbus Plus to Ethernet routing.
  • A simple wizard-based editor allows you to easily configure the required routings. Configuration can be done online without stopping or restarting the routing software.
  • The MBX Bridge operates transparently in the background, like a device driver, and allows other software to communicate concurrently over the same MBX devices and drivers.
