Overview

Moxa’s peripheral expansion modules, which come with serial ports, LAN ports, switch ports, fiber ports, time-synchronization IRIG-B ports, and PCI slots, give end-users the greatest flexibility for setting up industrial applications and are fully compatible with Moxa’s embedded computers that have perpheral expansion slots.
The serial port modules include an 8-port RS-232/422/485 module with either DB9 or terminal block connectors, and an 8-port RS- 422/485 module with terminal block connectors. Some modules are even designed with 2 kV digital isolation, making them fully suitable for the great demands of industrial applications that use serial communication. In addition, a 4-port LAN module, 8-port switch module, and 4-port fiber LAN module are available for setting up industrial communication applications with Ethernet-based devices. A universal PCI development kit is also available for PCI-based devices for expanding industrial applications at a reasonable cost.
The time-synchronization module features 3 digital inputs and 4 digital outputs and provides precision timing information using IRIG-B input signals. The module is designed for embedded computers that support the PCI/104 interface.
All modules are designed to offer the greatest flexibility for setting up applications and performing industrial tasks. In particular, users can swap out modules quickly and easily.

Making Smart Substations Even Smarter: Enhancing Substation Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability

Smart Substation Computer White PaperThis paper sketches out a few of the more important concerns that electricity suppliers should account for when planning substation upgrades. The focus is on how best to increase the reliability, availability, and maintainability of power substation automation networks within the context of the IEC 61850 vision, to give electricity suppliers a clear idea of the design procedures, device tolerances, and hardware and software features they should expect from the engineers and manufacturers who design and build their networking and computing devices.......more

Using MMS and SNMP to Integrate IT Management for Substation Automation

Using MMS and SNMP to Integrate IT Management for Substation AutomationThe devices that electrical substation automation systems are built from depend on highly precise, time-critical communications. Substation thus often use highly specialized monitoring systems to tackle this problem, but can approach it using different technologies. The most up-to-date, “smart” substations use the Manufacturing Messaging Specification (MMS) for communications among IEC 61850 intelligent electronic devices (IEDs), allowing SCADA to monitor and control IED states as well as process switchgear and transformer data directly. However, IT networking devices have been increasingly applied in IEC 61850 systems, and this equipment communicates using SNMP. Consequently, in the modern substation automation industry it’s clear that, for the time being, SNMP and MMS will continue to exist side-by-side. For designers and integrators of electrical substation equipment, bringing both MMS and SNMP support to IT equipment is an ideal, one-size fits-all alternative that allows for the greatest flexibility and adaptability around........more

Building the Industrial Cloud:The Immediate Future of M2M Technology

 

Building the Industrial Cloud:The Immediate Future of M2M TechnologyIn 2013, substantial steps towards building the Internet of Things at last began to materialize. In this white paper, Moxa examines the sorts of technology industrial networks will be relying on as they begin to build and deploy machine-to-machine networks. Software automations, hardware optimizations, and integrated platforms that fully exploit the convergence of these two main branches of system design are examined closely, to give IA and IT engineers a better idea of what challenges and obstacles they should be preparing for at the dawn of this new technological epoch........more
