Edge-to-Cloud IIoT Connectivity Solutions
Enabling Convergence of OT and IT to Achieve Secure and Smarter Manufacturing
With well-designed connectivity solutions for factory, automation Moxa paves the way of industrial reinvention in sectors like machine building, intralogistics, robotics, and machine tools. By providing integrated IIoT solutions from edge to cloud, Moxa helps to rethink and simplify connectivity for industrial applications. The convergence of OT and IT is one of Moxa´s focus areas to enable smarter manufacturing. This encompasses a holistic cybersecurity concept, MQTT capabilities for retrofit and future infrastructure, as well as the ability to process all relevant protocols. Additionally, Moxa is prepared for all future industrial communication trends such as TSN and 5G and collaborates with technology and factory automation market leaders to further support the industry’s reinvention.
The highlights at Moxa´s booth include: UC-8112-ME Microsoft Azure-Ready IIoT Edge Gateway Solution
Easy Connectivity from the Edge to the Cloud
The UC series IIoT Edge Gateways are the first Azure IoT Edge certified Arm-based computers. Integrating Azure IoT Edge with Moxa’s IIoT gateways benefits customers, especially those operating on Linux platforms, in a number of ways. The benefits include secure remote connections to enable deployment in remote locations, connectivity to allow existing brownfield applications to share data with the cloud, and device management and product longevity. The latter ensures that users can deploy, scale, and maintain their IIoT applications. Moxa's loT Gateway UC-8100A-ME-T computing platform is built around a Cortex-A8 processor and designed for embedded data acquisition applications. It has built-in remote communication capabilities and is Microsoft Azure-ready to facilitate data transfer from field devices to the cloud. The computer comes with dual RS-232/422/485 serial ports and dual 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports, as well as a Mini PCIe socket to support cellular modules. Due to these flexible interfacing options, this tiny embedded computer is a reliable and secure gateway for data acquisition and processing at field sites as well as a useful communications platform for many other large-scale deployments.
Wide-temperature and LTE-enabled models are available.
