Moxa launches the IA261-I-T/IA262-I-T, two RISC-based embedded computers for harsh environments

Taipei, Taiwan, July, 29, 2008— We are pleased to announce that the IA261-I-T and IA262-I-T embedded computers for wide temperature environments are now available.

The IA261-I-T and IA262-I-T are wide temperature models for harsh environments. The IA261-I-T comes with 4 RS-232/422/485 serial ports, and the IA262-I-T embedded computer comes with 2 RS-232/422/485 serial ports and dual CANbus ports. Both computers come with dual Ethernet ports, 8 digital input channels, 8 digital output channels, VGA output, 2 USB hosts, and a CompactFlash socket, and are housed in a compact, IP40 protected, industrial-strength aluminum housing.

Powerful embedded computing platform

The IA261-I-T/IA262-I-T 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-T/IA262-I-T.

Multiple connection options for data communication

The IA261-I-T/IA262-I-T computers support RS-232/422/485, CANbus (IA262-I-T only), digital I/O, come with 2 KV isolation protection, and have dual LAN ports, making them ideal as communication platforms for industrial applications that require network redundancy. In addition, the VGA output interface is suitable for use with SCADA systems in industrial applications, such as manufacturing 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-T/IA262-I-T 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-I-T/IA262-I-T without much porting effort.

5-year warranty

The IA261-I-T/IA262-I-T are backed by Moxa's generous 5-year warranty, which is an expression of the confidence we have in the quality and durability of our products.?
