Linux Applications Are Always Easier with Moxa IO Library

Taipei, Taiwan, October 12th, 2010 -- Linux is an excellent operating platform in automation industry due to its open-source, reliability, stability, and security. Moxa offers Linux users a free MXIO API Library to facilitate easy Linux programming. The MXIO library supports both WinCE and Linux operation systems, and also C++, VB/VC and .NET development platforms. Linux programmers can easily develop any custom applications, and enjoy all Linux benefits with the complete ioLogik product families. 

 

Industry-proven applications
In practices, the MXIO library covers a wide range of Moxa ioLogik products and embedded computers, and thus extends versatile Linux applications from computing to automatic control services. The wise combinations of Linux applications, Moxa’s computers and ioLogik devices have proven the unbeatable reliability and performance in many real industrial applications. 

 

High speed airport luggage control
With a baggage throughput of more than ten thousand luggage per hour, one of the big Asia airports has successfully implemented a RFID luggage tracking system using a newly developed Linux application which was fully supported by Moxa's UC-7420 embedded computers and ioLogik E2210 I/O modules. In the development process, the MXIO made easy for system programming and helped the Linux system easy to integrate the control and computing operations. In a short period, the system successfully handled ten thousand bags per hour to achieve the time critical control mission.

 

Automatic fog warning system
Establishing an automatic fog warn system is complex in aspects of sensor connection, fog density analysis, fog lamps control, and network communication for status report. However, it became easier with MXIO which helped develop an efficient Linux control system with the sample codes. Through MXIO, the Linux system well coordinated with Moxa's IA-240 computers and ioLogik E2210 active I/O controllers to complete the demanding information control and monitoring system.

 

Complete Linux-friendly ioLogik Solutions
The MXIO library supports the complete Moxa ioLogik lines with a pool of sample codes and direct I/O command sets. It provides tremendous helps for programmers to reduce software development time and quickly understand the API programming procedure. In combination with Linux platform, Moxa's embedded computers and ioLogik devices, the MXIO brings a big power to develop any custom and reliable Linux application fast and efficient.
