Moxa Ships Smart Remote Data Acquisition Devices

The portfolio is suited for the Industrial Internet of Things.

Moxa has released a new data acquisition solution that expands capabilities for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The new ioLogik 2542-WL1 and ioLogik 2512-WL1 both feature 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi connectivity, which will serve the growing number of devices and M2M applications that require wireless communication. The ioLogik 2542-WL1 supports analog I/O connections over Wi-Fi, whereas the ioLogik 2512-WL1 supports digital I/O connections over Wi-Fi.

Both ioLogik units feature automatic tag generation and reporting for connected sensors and devices. This enables operators to monitor a large number of field devices with great efficiency. This function can also work in conjunction with Moxa’s MX-AOPC UA Server on the cloud to minimize network bandwidth and latency. Data communication is protected with the highest commercially available security (WPA2/802.11i), which features advanced encryption and authentication.

In addition to Wi-Fi, the ioLogik 2542-WL1 and 2512-WL1 both feature a 4-port unmanaged Ethernet switch and two serial ports for a seamless connection to a variety of field devices. The serial ports support data polling from devices using the Modbus RTU protocol. This data can be converted into Modbus TCP or AOPC tag format before sending it out over the Ethernet network. The units also support communication with multiple remote I/O devices under a single IP address.

“We want to make it as easy as possible for industrial users to collect and share sensor data in different environments and circumstances,” said Wenyuan Niu, product marketing manager at Moxa. “Wi-Fi is becoming a useful and popular mode of communication both on the factory floor and in remote locations. Our new wireless models will help users leverage Wi-Fi for their data acquisition requirements.”
