is an innovative computing platform designed specifically for transportation
applications. Its single-sided I/O design is ideal for vehicle applications,
which typically do not have enough room for installing communication
devices. Front-side access makes it easy to install or change SIM
cards and wiring cables. Users can install or change wireless modules,
mSATA cards, and the RTC battery from the top or the bottom for easy
has 1 miniPCIe slot with USB signal to support a 4G/LTE module, and
1 slot with PCIe/USB signal to support a Wi-Fi module. The 4G/LTE
module has two SIM card slots, which can be used to enable redundant
cellular network communications or geo-fencing SIM card selection
by leveraging the built-in MIRF 2.0, a Moxa device remote-management
platform with wireless management.
UC-8540 can be used as a communication-centric computing platform
in applications such as vehicle-to-ground communication gateway, TCMS
T2G (train-to-ground) gateway, mobile condition monitoring unit, Ethernet
Consist Network T2G gateway, and onboard wireless automated fare collection
Wireless modules are sold separately. Please contact a Moxa
sales representative for details.
The UC-8540 uses an open platform based on Debian 8 with Linux kernel
4.1, allowing solution providers to manage software packages via Debian’s
APT (advanced packaging tools), or develop software applications with
Moxa’s API Library and GNU C Library.
