    Tips for Deploying Wireless Networks for AS/RS and AGV Systems

    Modern factories are increasingly deploying AS/RS and AGV systems in their facilities worldwide to optimize production efficiency and reliability. This has led to an increase in industrial traffic on factory floors and within their facilities. To be able to monitor and control the AS/RS and AGV systems, as well as other moving equipment, the control centers in these factories need uninterrupted connectivity with the equipment and vehicles. Therefore, it is essential to build a wireless network that is not only stable but also optimized for the high deployment density and high-speed operations of the industrial vehicles in factories. Consequently, factory owners face the challenge of building a wireless communication system that can provide reliable wireless connectivity with sufficient coverage and which can be managed with minimal effort. In this white paper, we discuss some key tips for deploying a wireless network for AS/RS and AGV systems.

    PROFINET Over Industrial WLAN Infrastructure

    This document aims to communicate the protocol requirements, deployment considerations, challenges, and Moxa’s solutions to support one of the most popular industrial communication protocols, PROFINET, in wireless networks. Specifically, this whitepaper provides an overview of the basic PROFINET requirements and configuration variables needed to obtain an acceptable performance margin in a wireless environment. In addition, this paper provides several example scenarios of industrial wireless applications using Moxa’s WLAN solutions to serve as a frame of reference for planning out a wireless PROFINET deployment

    Optical Fiber vs. Copper: The Key Distinctions

    This white paper has been written to compare and contrast the differences of optical fiber versus copper cabling in industrial networking. Both types of cabling play important roles in industrial networking and they both have applications that make one or the other desirable depending on the circumstances.

    What Is MQTT?     

    The MQTT messaging protocol was first developed in 1999 by IBM and Cirrus Link, and was accepted as an ISO standard in 2013, starting with version 3.1. MQTT uses a publish-subscribe pattern (see Figure 2) to exchange messages. As illustrated in the figure, an MQTT system comprises one broker and several clients, where clients can either be publishers or subscribers. Publishers send data to the broker in the form of MQTT packets, which consist of a “topic” and “payload.” The broker then distributes the data to subscribers based on which topics they have expressed interest in.
