The W406 Empowers the Communication and Management of Industrial Applications Anytime, Anywhere

Taipei, Taiwan, July 22, 2009Moxa is pleased to release the W406, a RISC-based wireless  embedded computer. The W406 contains excellent features that include four DI/DOs, GSM/GPRS/EDGE, and support for SMS to allow seamless communication and management with industrial applications anytime, anywhere. 


The W406 is an embedded Linux or WinCE computer that features two software selectable RS-232/422/485 ports, and one Ethernet port. Programmers will find that the W406 provides a convenient programming environment for producing bug-free industrial applications at a lower cost. In addition, the W406 comes with an SD socket, USB host, and four digital input and four digital output channels, making it the ideal computer for a variety of industrial applications such as data acquisition, data processing, protocol conversion, and remote device control and monitoring via wireless communication.


Integrated Communication Without Restrictions

The W406 provides quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE 900/1800/850/1900 MHz and an SMS tunnel mode, allowing engineers to receive the latest information and status from field sites in real-time. With the W406’s wireless features, network systems can use long-range cellular applications to extend their reach. Users can also create peer-to-peer, distributed wireless communication with embedded systems by converting traditional wired devices to wireless to provide higher mobility and greater intelligence.



Wide Operating Temperature for Harsh Environments
