Industrial Universal PCI Solutions That Support Wide Temperatures for Optimized Performance

Taipei, Taiwan, May 21, 2009—Moxa introduces complete UPCI solutions that support a wide operating temperature range from -40 to 85ºC to ensure the reliability of industrial applications. Users have more choices to choose from, including RS-232 to RS-232/422/485 and 2 to 8 ports, to meet their requirements. Designed for dependable and consistent usage, Moxa's UPCI boards feature optical isolation protection to meet the demands of harsh industrial environments.

"For over 20 years, we have been focusing on industrial-grade serial application and interface development to provide the most reliable and complete solutions. Our wide UPCI temperature is evidence of our dedication," said Casper Yang, Manager of Moxa's Host Attachment Division.

40 Steadfast Universal PCI Models to Choose From

Industrial applications are often coupled with harsh environments; to assure reliable performance, Moxa's Universal PCI boards feature a wide operating temperature range from -40 to 85ºC. The wide temperature feature and vast selection of models can meet your distinctive requirements and provide an ideal solution for rugged and outdoor applications such as power and factory automation.

Indispensable 2 KV Optical Isolation Protection

Input and output devices connected to serial boards are often damaged by ground loop currents as the ground voltages between connected devices are usually different. To guarantee reliable and high quality data transmission, Moxa's Universal PCI boards come with a 2 KV optical isolation option to protect your devices against as much as 2000 volts.

3-in-1 Interface for Maximum Flexibility

Most UPCI boards on the market can only support one or two interfaces, forcing field engineers to use several different boards for one application. With Moxa's 3-in-1 RS-232/422/485 interface, engineers can now employ just one board to handle the assortment of legacy serial device communication applications with maximum ease and flexibility.

Moxa's Universal PCI boards support a wide range of drivers including Windows 2008, Windows CE 5.0/6.0, and Linux to name a few. Detailed product information is available on Moxa's global website at: https://www.moxa.com/product/Universal_PCI_Serial_Cards.htm
