ZigBee_NPort_Z2150_Z3150_BannerTaipei, Taiwan, February 24, 2012—Moxa is pleased to release the NPort® Z2150 series - a 1-port RS-232/422/485 to ZigBee converter, and the NPort® Z3150 series – a ZigBee-to-Ethernet gateway. Moxa’s new wireless solution can bring Ethernet connectivity to serial devices via a ZigBee network. The ZigBee standard is a wireless mesh network standard suitable for covering a wide area. According to research conducted by NPD In-Stat (http://www.instat.com), revenue of this highly reliable, relatively inexpensive, and low power-consuming technology will likely approach $1 Billion in 2015. To meet the growing demand of ZigBee solutions, the NPort Z2150/Z3150 series, which are IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee-compliant, provide wireless solutions with 128-bit AES hardware encryption. Wide-temperature models of the NPort Z2150 series can operate in environments ranging from -40 to 75°C and features a rugged metal housing to ensure reliable performance for use in Industrial automation, building automation(HVAC), and smart grid(power meter) applications.

“To provide a variety of serial-to-Ethernet solutions for our customers, we have released a new wireless solution with the ZigBee standard, which is popular for its flexible mesh network topology and low-power consumption. Also, the NPort Z2150/Z3150 is designed with rugged 3-in-1 surge-protection,” said Jun Chuang, product manager of the NPort Z2150/Z3150.
Moxa, a member of the ZigBee Alliance, will release the NPort Z2150/Z3150 series in March, 2012.
