Moxa is all set to showcase their new UC-2100, UC-3100, and UC-5100 Series LTE-Ready ArmLinux IIoT Gateways from April 23 to 27 at Hannover Messe 2018 at the Arm booth in Hall 6, Stand A46.
These industrial-grade computers from Moxa are highly integrated Arm-based Linux platforms that include Moxa Industrial Linux (MIL) and optional ThingsPro Gateway data-acquisition software, simplifying development for a diverse array of IIoT gateway applications.
Power-Efficient Performance and Robust 4G LTE Connectivity
The solution uses Arm Cortex-A processors, which are highly optimized for performance and power efficiency:
“The combination of high-performance computing, low power, and the widest software ecosystem ensure that Arm Cortex processors are at the heart of IoT gateways,” said Phil Burr, Director of Portfolio Product Management, Arm. “The Moxa UC series of gateways further extend Arm’s leadership in this area, providing industrial-grade intelligence at the edge in power budgets under 10W.”
To meet the varied requirements of embedded data acquisition and processing applications, equipment used in an industrial environment often needs be able to operate in harsh conditions while installed in a cabinet with limited space available. 4G LTE technology can provide massive speed improvements, but also results in increased heat generated by the 4G LTE components. To provide reliable 4G LTE connectivity in challenging environments, Moxa’s UC Series IIoT gateways are available in models that can operate in a wide range of operating temperatures ranging from -40 to 75°C and are backed by a 5-year hardware warranty. They are also available in sizes as tiny as 50 x 80 x 28mm so they can easily fit into a control cabinet. Beyond 4G LTE connectivity, UC Series IIoT gateways also offer a wide range of other interface options to meet the requirements of any project, including serial, CANBUS, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
Moxa Industrial Linux with Superior 10-Year Long-Term Support
Moxa Industrial Linux (MIL) is a high-performance, industrial-grade Linux distribution developed by Moxa designed to help accelerate industrial projects. MIL provides a container-based virtual-machine-like middleware abstraction layer between the OS and applications. Flexible software middleware allows multiple isolated systems to run on a single control host so that system integrators and engineers can easily change the behavior of an application without worrying about software compatibility. Equipped with MIL, Moxa’s UC Series next-generation IIoT gateways offer an efficient, flexible, and robust platform for an array of IIoT edge computing scenarios. Furthermore, to address the needs of long-term software used for the power, water, oil & gas, transportation, and building automation industries, MIL provides 10-year long-term Linux support with an extensive range of security fixes, making your IIoT projects secure and sustainable.
Easy Data Acquisition with ThingsPro Gateway Software
Achieving robust and secure data transfer from edge devices to a cloud database is both time and resource-consuming. Moxa’s ThingsPro Gateway software provides Modbus data acquisition, LTE connectivity, MQTT communication, and cloud client interfaces such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, enabling fast integration of edge data into cloud services for large-scale IIoT deployments. For those who need more customized solutions, ThingsPro Gateway includes C and Python APIs to speed up application development.
With flexible interfacing options and software support, Moxa’s UC Series edge-computing platform is a reliable and sustainable IIoT gateway for data acquisition and processing at field sites, as well as a valuable communication platform for large-scale IIoT deployments.
