Overview

The UC-8416 series embedded computers come with 8 RS- 232/422/485 serial ports, 3 Ethernet ports, 2 CAN ports, 8 Ethernet ports, 12 digital input channels, 12 digital output channels, a CompactFlash socket, and 2 USB 2.0 hosts.
The computers use the Intel XScale IXP435 533 MHz RISC CPU. This powerful computing engine supports several useful communication functions, but will not generate too much heat. The built-in 16 MB NOR Flash ROM and 256 MB SDRAM give you enough memory to run your application software directly on the UC-8418, and the 32 MB NAND Flash can be used to provide additional data storage. Moreover, the 256 KB SRAM offers a better data retention mechanism for avoiding data loss. These computers come with various communication interfaces, such as serial ports, Ethernet ports, CAN ports, and digital input/output channels, making them ideal as a communication platform for industrial applications that require network and device communications.
The UC-8416 Series comes with the Linux 2.6 or Windows CE 6.0 platform pre-installed to provide an open software operating system for software program development. Software written for a desktop PC can be easily ported to the UC-8416 Series platform by using a common compiler, without needing to modify the code. making these computers an optimal solution for use with industrial applications, but with minimal cost and effort.
In addition to the standard model, a -40 to 75°C wide temperature model is also available for harsh industrial environments.

 

White Paper

Securing Edge Devices and Data in Distributed Industrial Applications

 

Securing Edge Devices and Data in Distributed Computing Application White PaperIn this white paper, Moxa examines the unique security challenges posed by widely distributed computing solutions that put edge devices into residential homes and public spaces. When considering computers for smart grid, surveillance, and ITS solutions, system integrators must also consider how to lock down the hardware and software to protect the devices from being subverted by hostile exploits. End users and system integrators alike will find that the Trusted Computing Platforms figures strongly in the solution, and when combined with secure kernel authentication and a variety of other software and hardware features produces a powerful, versatile computing solution with a wide range of applications.........more

White Paper

Building the Industrial Cloud:The Immediate Future of M2M Technology

 

Building the Industrial Cloud:The Immediate Future of M2M TechnologyIn 2013, substantial steps towards building the Internet of Things at last began to materialize. In this white paper, Moxa examines the sorts of technology industrial networks will be relying on as they begin to build and deploy machine-to-machine networks. Software automations, hardware optimizations, and integrated platforms that fully exploit the convergence of these two main branches of system design are examined closely, to give IA and IT engineers a better idea of what challenges and obstacles they should be preparing for at the dawn of this new technological epoch........more
