They say good things come in small packages, but it gets even better when good things come together in compact and rugged packages. In this case, three connectivity solutions that take the frustration out of time-consuming tasks and keep operations in the black with low overall costs. Moxa’s new NPort IAW5000A-6I/O series conveniently integrates a serial device server, a Wi-Fi client, and DI and DO into a single compact device that is ideal for limited-space applications. What this solution means for you is that it makes everything from commissioning to troubleshooting painless. Gone are the days of spending the time to configure three different devices, going back and forth between different vendors for technical support, and buying different spare parts to maintain your devices. Furthermore, this new solution is guaranteed to reduce the total cost of ownership of your operation.

The Hidden Costs You May Overlook

Target Applications

Machine Monitoring on Factory Shop Floor

Many of the unconnected machines on factory shop floors are older legacy equipment that involves heavy investments. However, new technologies are now necessary to implement modernized systems that collect, monitor, and analyze data to identify operational issues, reduce labor efforts, and minimize interruptions to production by monitoring real-time data to ensure optimal manufacturing performance.

Parking Automation

A detector is installed in the back of each parking space, collecting parking status data in real time. This information is transmitted in a timely manner via a wireless network to a reader, and can be used to provide an application service such as a car-parking guidance system for motorists and for parking management. 

Wellhead Monitoring for Oil and Gas

Because wellheads are scattered across oil and gas fields, adopting wireless network solutions to transmit and collect mission-critical data helps overcome the difficulties posed by wired networking connections.
