Moxa rolls out a new success story

Taipei, Taiwan, October 12, 2007---Moxa Technologies, a leading manufacturer of device networking products, is pleased to announce the release of a new success story from the shipbuilding automation market. The new story, titled Real-time Networked Sonar System for Ships , can be found on Moxa's website on the Maritime & Offshore Automation theme site: https://www.moxa.com/Zones/Industrial_Ethernet/Marine/Index.htm

The company featured in this story is a multinational, knowledge-based system provider that delivers marine electronics solutions by utilizing industrial Ethernet technology to ensure that operations at sea are dependable and optimal. More precisely, the company produces products and systems used by merchant vessels and offshore installations for positioning, navigation, and automation, as well as products and systems for surveying and monitoring the seabed, and for fishing vessels and fisheries research.

As one of the major suppliers of high quality marine electronics in the world, the company used Moxa's gigabit managed switches as part of their sonar positioning system. Their main requirement was to form a high-speed network to connect devices in the hull unit room with other devices on the bridge. Another major concern with this type of maritime application is that the devices used in the application must be rugged enough to endure the corrosive effects of salt water, and be able to withstand excessive amounts of vibration and shock. In this story, you will see how the ruggedized Ethernet solutions from Moxa satisfied the users' demand for this industrial application.
