Taipei, Taiwan, January 16, 2020—Moxa, a leading provider of industrial computing solutions, has added a new series of rugged wireless-ready IIoT gateways, the UC-8200 Series, to its Arm-based industrial computers. The UC-8200 Series includes fanless computers with Arm Cortex-A7 dual-core 1 GHz processors that are designed for operations in harsh environments with wide temperatures ranging from -40 to 85°C (-40 to 185°F). Dual serial ports, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, 4 DIs, 4 DOs, and 1 CAN port as well as dual mPCIe and dual SIM slots support redundant Wi-Fi/cellular connectivity let users efficiently deploy the UC-8200 in a variety of complex communication scenarios in IIoT applications. To address the need for longevity in industrial-automation projects, the UC-8200 Series is backed with a solid 5-year hardware warranty and 10-year long-term support for Moxa Industrial Linux.
The UC-8200 computers provide built-in cellular connectivity to LTE Cat. 4 networks with dual SIM slots for redundancy and integrated GPS for location tracking; Wi-Fi connectivity can be enabled via expansion modules. To speed up the time to market, Moxa provides a management utility for programmers to quickly configure cellular functions on the computers. Wireless compatibility with regional carriers is ensured through RF type approvals such as FCC, IC, PTCRB, RED, RCM, and NCC*.
IIoT gateways play an important role in collecting data from edge devices and transferring field data to a cloud database. Featuring a wide range of communication interfaces such as Gigabit Ethernet ports, RS-232/422/485 serial ports, CAN port, and DI/DOs, these IIoT gateways make it easy to connect your existing field equipment to the cloud.
Designed for Harsh Environments and Remote Sites
In demanding applications, such as solar energy, oil and gas, or water and wastewater management, computers are often deployed in extreme hot or cold temperatures with high exposure to dust and explosive atmospheres. With their fanless design and a -40 to 85°C wide operating temperature range (-40 to 70°C with LTE enabled), the UC-8200 computers are built to operate reliably in harsh industrial environments. The computers are also C1D2, ATEX Zone 2, and IECEx certified*, making them suitable for deployment in hazardous environments with explosive atmospheres.
Long-term Hardware and Software Support
The UC series computers are backed with an industry-leading 5-year hardware warranty and 10-year Moxa Industrial Linux support that includes improvements and security updates to deliver the reliability and stability required for long-term industrial deployments.
