Moxa unveils new-generation x86 industrial computers to top up data connectivity at industrial edge
Moxa has announced the launch of a new family of x86 industrial computers (IPCs) to address the increasing demands of data connectivity and real-time processing of large volumes of sensor and device data at the industrial edge. The industrial sector is rapidly embracing digital transformation with increased awareness about resource optimisation, which is driving up the demand for reliable x86 IPCs as edge devices to interface with the industrial IoT application platforms and accelerate the deployment of Industry 4.0-enabled solutions.
To respond to the need for reliable and rugged IPCs in retrofit and upgrade projects at the industrial edge, Moxa has new x86 IPC families—the BXP, DRP, and RKP series, in multiple form factors, adaptable interface combinations, and with various options of Intel processors, totalling 75 different models. The comprehensive IPC portfolio is specially designed to meet the changing needs in the industrial automation field.
The BXP, DRP, and RKP series are each backed by a 3-year hardware warranty and 10-year longevity commitment (released in 2023). Furthermore, the simplified configure-to-order service (CTOS) also supports customers in quickly identifying the best fit for their applications in just a few steps.
The BXP, DRP, and RKP series are rugged, fanless computers designed to operate reliably in harsh environments. The sealed design effectively dissipates heat and reduces unexpected maintenance and system failure, keeping the 24/7 operations running in POS systems for transportation and petrol stations wherein massive data processing is required, and equipment is most likely exposed to harsh outdoor environment.
Furthermore, the computers have passed rigorous tests for adherence to safety standards, including continuous exposure to extreme temperatures, power surges, and shock, so they can withstand extreme weather conditions and work non-stop without overheating or freezing up.
The BXP, DRP, and RKP series offer three form factors based on the installation type, which include wall-mount, DIN-rail mount, and rackmount options. Users can choose the most suitable installation type based on their application scenario, considering space constraints and installation costs.
Furthermore, a variety of interface combinations top up the base models to provide models with up to 12 LAN ports and 10 serial ports, depending on the series. The computer models are powered by an Intel Atom, Intel Celeron, or Intel Core processor to face different complexity levels of your application. Moreover, the configure-to-order (CTO) service offers a variety of operating systems, memory, and storage options, making system assembly more manageable than ever and enabling faster time to market.
Engineered to maximise capabilities in industrial automation edge connectivity, Moxa’s new-generation x86 IPCs set a new standard for reliability, adaptability, and longevity.
