UC-8112-LX Edge Computer
The UC-8112-LX industrial-grade RISC-based edge computer may be tiny, but it has everything you need for field-site deployment. It packs a 1 GHz ARM processor, 512 MB RAM, two LAN ports, and two serial ports into a compact, rugged, palm-sized box. It also supports a wide range of wireless accessories to add LTE or Wi-Fi connectivity if needed. Following the industry trend of implementing distributedgrid and smart-manufacturing designs, industrial-grade computers add essential field-site intelligence for RMAC (Remote Monitoring And Control), Intelligent Data Logger, Software-based RTU, and Protocol Converter applications. The UC-8112-LX’s open platform design supports Debian 8, and the Linux Kernel is based on Moxa’s SLTS (Superior Long Term Support) Linux Kernel v4.x to ensure that your software assets will be useful for longer than would otherwise be possible.

When the monitoring system along a key harbor corridor in a major American city needed updating, the system manager decided to use existing copper wiring to transmit data over significantly longer distances. As this project needed to integrate more systems into one network, serial networks were no longer sufficient to support the expanded network, which is why an industrial Ethernet technology over copper wires via a DSL was required to support more bandwidth over longer distances. In addition, VPN connections and firewall protection were required to ensure network safety and data integrity. Read More
For subsea control applications, great efforts are made to install industry-specific cables under the sea. In this project, the number one requirement is to leverage the existing infrastructure to reduce costs and time spent on installing cables. In addition, oil & gas environments are extremely hazardous due to the high pressures the products are subjected to, so the installation has to be quick and must support remote management and diagnosis.
