Moxa launches new RISC-based embedded computer with IA261-I/IA262-I

Taipei, Taiwan, April, 3, 2008—Moxa is pleased to announce the release of new embedded computers: IA261-I and IA262-I.

The IA261-I/262-I embedded computers come with 2 (IA262-I) or 4 (IA261-I) RS-232/422/485 serial ports, dual CANbus ports (IA262-I only), dual Ethernet ports, 8 digital input channels, 8 digital output channels, VGA output, 2 USB hosts, and a CompactFlash socket. The computers are housed in a compact, IP40 protected, industrial-strength aluminum case.

Powerful embedded computing platform
The IA261-I/262-I computers use the Cirrus Logic EP9315 ARM9, 32-bit, 200 MHz RISC CPU. This powerful computing engine supports several useful communication functions, but will not generate too much heat. The built-in 32 MB NOR Flash ROM and 128 MB SDRAM give you enough memory to run your application software directly on the IA261-I/262-I.

Multiple connection options for data communication
The IA261-I/262-I computers support RS-232/422/485, CANbus, come with 2 KV isolation protection, and have dual LAN ports, making them ideal as communication platforms for industrial applications that require network redundancy. Also, the DI/DO channels with 3 KV optical isolation protection can ensure a reliable and stable system operation. Meanwhile, the VGA output interface is suitable for use with SCADA systems in industrial applications, such as factory automation, production line process monitoring, and mining automation, that require VGA and HMI features.

Wide temperature models for harsh industrial environments
In addition to the standard models, wide temperature (-40 to 75°C) models are available for use in harsh industrial automation environments.

Windows CE 6.0 pre-installed
The IA261-I/262-I computers come with Windows CE 6.0 pre-installed, and support general Windows and .NET 2.0 computing environments. This means that programs developed for standard PC operating systems with tools such Embedded Visual C++ or Visual Studio 2005 can run on the IA261/262 without much porting effort.

5-year warranty
As an expression of confidence in the IA261-I/262-I’s durability, Moxa is including a generous 5-year warranty. With the generous warranty and Moxa's reputation for excellent quality, users can be assured of reliable performance for years to come.
