Ultra-compact Arm-based IIoT Gateways for Cost-effective Digital Transformation
Moxa’s rugged palm-sized Arm-based UC-2100 computers are reliable and secure IIoT gateways with Ethernet and ESD-protected serial ports. The mean time between failures (MTBF) is up to 1,600,000 hours and the preinstalled Debian-based Moxa Industrial Linux comes with 10-year lifecycle support. This makes the computers ideal for cost- and space-constrained industrial scenarios.
- Industrial-certified Wide-temperature Design
Proven wide-temperature design and industrial certifications, such as ATEX, IEC 60950, and UL 60950, make the UC-2100 ideal even in extreme conditions found in oil and gas, process automation, mining, and marine applications.
- Industrial-grade Robust Chassis
Rugged design with no cables, connector boards, or moving parts make Moxa UC-2100 a shock-proof and vibration-proof computing platform with a 5-year warranty and MTBF of up to 1,600,000 hours.
- Robust Communication Interfaces
UC-2100 comes with a flexible port design that includes auto-sensing Ethernet for data acquisition and processing at field sites and software-selectable RS-232/422/485 serial ports with up to 4 kV ESD protection, which is ideal for space-constrained industrial scenarios.
An Integrated Solution for Data Acquisition and Device Monitoring
For fast, efficient device status monitoring and data collection from large-scale or unmanned field sites, the UC-2100 Arm-based IIoT gateway joins forces with Moxa’s ioLogik I/O devices and EDS/SDS switches. Sensor data collected by ioLogik I/O devices is actively pushed to the UC-2100, thanks to the embedded MXIO library. EDS/SDS switches then collect the data from the UC-2100 IIoT gateway and transfer it to the control room for data analysis and status monitoring. MXview industrial network management software ties it all together by enabling you to monitor and diagnose networking devices across your industrial networks. This integrated solution significantly reduces the extra costs and effort needed to develop and deploy a variety of applications, such as oil and gas, power, and factory automation.
How to build an IIoT System on a Shoestring Budget
Download Moxa’s fictional application story for a step-by-step guide to building your IIoT system, including defining the requirements, challenges, strategy, and implementation.
This story describes how a hypothetical industrial company uses commercial off-the-shelf building blocks that are both cost-effective and enable a high degree of scalability and automation for their IIoT solution while keeping control of their core competences. It even outlines the very specific steps of how to implement a simple reference architecture based on commercial off-the-shelf hardware, software, and services from Moxa, qbee.io, and Adtek. The true value comes from the ease and speed of the implementation as well as the reliability and longevity of the solution that drives the total cost of ownership down and keeps the solution economically viable for 10 years and more.
