Moxa launches the DA-682, a new x86-based rackmount embedded computer with modular flexibility

Taipei, Taiwan, June 25, 2008—Moxa has announced the release of the DA-682, a brand new x86-based rackmount embedded computer with modular flexibility.

The DA-682 computer uses the Intel x86 processor and has a VGA port, 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 8 RS-232/422/485 serial ports with optical isolation, a CompactFlash, and USB port, and comes in a standard 19-inch, 2U high form factor.

Diverse modules for expansion

One of the most important features of the DA-682 is that it comes with 2 PCI slots for inserting expansion modules. Moxa provides a variety of communication modules, including an 8-port RS-232/422/485 module (both DB9 and terminal block versions are available, both with isolation), and a 4-port 10/100 Mbps LAN module. Users can also swap in their own universal PCI board to add additional ports. The friendly design gives users the advantage of being able to swap out modules quickly and easily.

Highly recommended for the power industry

The DA-682's robust design makes it suitable for industrial automation applications that require standard 19-inch rackmount solutions, such as power automation, transportation, and oil and gas. Another plus is that the serial ports come with 2 KV of optical isolation protection to guarantee communication reliability in harsh industrial environments.

Linux, Windows CE 6.0, or Windows XP Embedded pre-installed

The DA-682 runs Linux, WinCE 6.0, or Windows XP Embedded, all of which are preinstalled, to provide a friendly environment for developing sophisticated application software. The software support that Moxa provides makes the programmer's job easier, and helps programmers develop bug-free code quickly and at a lower cost.
Taken together, these features make the DA-682 an ideal solution for use with a wide array of industrial automation applications.
