The UC-8100-ME-T computing platform is designed for embedded data acquisition applications. The computer comes with two RS-232/422/485 serial ports and dual 10/100 Mbps Ethernet LAN ports, as well as a Mini PCIe socket to support cellular modules. These versatile communication capabilities let users efficiently adapt the UC-8100-ME-T to a variety of complex communications solutions.
The UC-8100-ME-T is built around a Cortex-A8 RISC processor that has been optimized for use in energy monitoring systems, but is widely applicable to a variety of industrial solutions. With 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 communication platform for many other large-scale deployments.
Wide temperature LTE-enabled models are available for extended temperature applications. All units are thoroughly tested in a testing chamber, guaranteeing that the LTE-enabled computing platforms are suitable for wide temperature applications. Since many legacy industrial protocols are not compatible with IoT technologies, sending data from edge devices to a cloud database is often a drain on engineering resources. An optional software tool that comes with the UC-8100-ME-T series is Moxa’s ThingsPro™, an integrated data-acquisition and device-management software suite, which includes generic Modbus protocol support, as well as the IoT communication protocol MQTT, making it easy to transfer field data to a remote database in a few simple steps.
