UC-8112-LX Edge Computer

The UC-8112-LX industrial-grade RISC-based edge computer may be tiny, but it has everything you need for field-site deployment. It packs a 1 GHz ARM processor, 512 MB RAM, two LAN ports, and two serial ports into a compact, rugged, palm-sized box. It also supports a wide range of wireless accessories to add LTE or Wi-Fi connectivity if needed. Following the industry trend of implementing distributedgrid and smart-manufacturing designs, industrial-grade computers add essential field-site intelligence for RMAC (Remote Monitoring And Control), Intelligent Data Logger, Software-based RTU, and Protocol Converter applications. The UC-8112-LX’s open platform design supports Debian 8, and the Linux Kernel is based on Moxa’s SLTS (Superior Long Term Support) Linux Kernel v4.x to ensure that your software assets will be useful for longer than would otherwise be possible.
