Moxa's Advanced x86-based Rackmount Computers for Power Substations


Taipei, Taiwan, January 20, 2010—Moxa is proud to release the DA-710, an x86-based fanless rackmount embedded computer with modular flexibility. This new addition is based on the Intel x86 processor and supports USB, VGA, and CompactFlash, and is equipped with four Ethernets ports and two RS-232 serial ports. Moxa's DA-710 makes for an ideal platform for industrial applications thank to its standard 19-inch, 4U high form factor. In addition, the modular expansion design allows users to tailor their embedded computers.

The Evolution of Power Substations
The innovative DA-710 is designed for power substations; this rugged industrial computer offers a wide range of applications for multitasking in a single power substation central management system. Moxa's DA-710 can put an end to system instability and simplify maintenance problems often associated with traditional multi-backend host servers.
Powerful and Customizable
The DA-710 not only features a high performance Intel processor, but it also comes with four PCI slots for inserting assorted expansion modules to cater to the needs of different applications. Modules include: an 8-port RS-232/422/485 module (available with isolation, DB9 or terminal block), a 4-port 10/100 Mbps LAN module, an 8-port RS-232/485 module, an 8-port 10/100 switch module, an 8-port RS-422/485 module, an 8-port module, and a universal PCI expansion module. Swapping of modules is quick and effortless.

Power Redundancy with Fanless Design
The DA-710 offers 100/240 VAC/VDC dual power inputs and supports redundant applications to ensure continuous operation. Moxa's unique fanless design allows the DA-710 to use a high performance processor, and the reliability and stability of the system is increased, while repair and maintenance efforts are reduced.

Pre-installed Operating System
The DA-710 runs pre-installed Linux, WinCE 6.0, or Windows XP Embedded to provide a friendly environment for developing sophisticated application software. Moxa provides powerful software to alleviate a programmer's workload and make it easier to develop bug-free code, saving valuable time and development costs.

All of the functions and features of the DA-710 make it an ideal solution for a wide array of industrial automation applications.

Rcore Ready-to-Run Embedded Software Platform

All of Moxa's embedded computers come with the operating system pre-installed. In addition, BIOS, middleware, sample code, and tools are provided to give programmers a user-friendly environment for application development, essentially minimizing the effort for system integration.
