Taipei, Taiwan, April 30, 2013— Moxa Inc. is pleased to unveil the ioLogik R1200 series, a new line of smart RS-485 serial interface remote I/O devices with innovative features, such as communication configuration by software, uploading configuration or firmware by USB, dual RS-485 ports, and built-in repeater.
The ioLogik R1200 smart RS-485 serial remote I/O devices are perfect for establishing a cost-effective, dependable, and easy-to-maintain process control remote I/O system.
