x86 platform with expandable GbE
and serial interfaces
The adoption of the IIoT has increased and so has the demand to connect hundreds and thousands of devices to the industrial automation systems. The DA-720 series computers are high-performance industrial-grade x86 platforms built for the heavy data processing needs of the IIoT. These computers are built around an lntel 6th Gen Skylake processor clocked at up to 2.6 GHz and come in an 19-inch 2U rack-mountable case. Provided with high I/O density that can support up to 22 gigabit Ethernet ports plus 10 RS-232/422/485 serial ports, or 14 gigabit Ethernet ports and 18 RS-232/422/485 serial ports, the DA-720 is ideal for heavy data processing, protocol conversion, and remote monitoring in power substations, railway, factory, and building automation applications.
The DA-720 comes with high-performance Intel® Core™ i5 or i7 CPU options that allow system designers to install the mSATA, RAM, and operating system according to their application requirements. The computer is also provided with expandable serial and Ethernet interfaces to enable easy connectivity with a large number of field devices that have various data processing needs, for heavy data processing, protocol conversion, and remote monitoring in your industrial automation applications.
Moxa’s DA-720 series rugged computers are designed to operate reliably in harsh industrial environments. They have passed rigorous tests for adherence to safety standards, including continuous exposure to high voltage, power surges, and shock. The DA-720 is therefore a perfect choice for your power, rail, factory, and building automation applications.
Moxa is committed to the development of fanless industrial-grade computers that work reliably in harsh environments and has invested heavily in the research and development of high-quality product. Moxa combines its commitment and experience with innovative technologies in areas such as thermal management to build high-performance rugged industrial computers.
Automation computers are often located at unmanned or remote sites. To ensure maximum uptime, the DA-720 series computer supports Moxa’s Proactive Monitoring utility, which provides real-time information about the status of the computer hardware and triggers alerts based on user-defined criteria for predictive maintenance.The Smart Recovery utility allows engineers to automatically trigger OS recovery at remote locations to minimize system downtime.
A substation requires powerful front-end controllers in its power SCADA system to perform data acquisition, protocol conversion, and remote supervision and control, especially in an IEC-61850 substation. Moxa's DA-720 is an IEC-61850-3, EN 60255, and IEEE 1613 compliant computer that is ideal for substation automation. Its can reduce the front-end workload of the power SCADA systems with its powerful performance. The expandable serial interfaces on the DA-720 can facilitate connectivity with legacy IEDs and meters while the multiple gigabit Ethernet ports help to connect Ethernet-ready intelligent devices to the substation network. The DA-720 also provides PRP/HSR support to establish high network availability in your substation network.
Station integrated supervisory control systems (ISCS) and wayside control and monitoring systems require a powerful front-end processor to control the local SCADA as well as the traction power substation and relay house. The DA-720 computer with its compliance with EN 50121-4 standards ensures stable and reliable system operation in rail applications. DA-720’s expandable serial interfaces and 14 gigabit Ethernet ports facilitate the integration of station subsystems, including AFC, PAS, PSD, and FAS, into a single platform. You can also use the computer to integrate disaster prevention, traction power, and signaling, and safety systems into rail wayside applications to provide an integrated view of your Smart Rail system.
A facility management and control system (FMCS) typically consists of gas insulated switchgear (GIS), environmental control and monitoring applications for energy monitoring, UPS control, water treatment, and HVAC, as well as device control applications that control dry pumps and local scrubbers. A high-performance computing platform is needed to collect, monitor, and analyze such a large volume of diverse data as well as convert between different data protocols. Moxa’s DA-720 computer eases device integration by providing a high density of serial and gigabit-Ethernet ports. In addition, its fanless design ensures that it continues to deliver high-quality performance even inside dusty shop floors. EMC level 4 compliance protects the computer against electromagnetic interference from other equipment, such as motors, in its vicinity.
