Data acquisition in Industry 4.0
Slave ethernet port links up to eight daisy-chained expansion modules and converts more than 100 channels to one IP address.
Moxa’s ioLogik 2542-WL1 and 2512-WL1 data acquisition modules bring manufacturing networking applications into the Industry 4.0 world with greater versatility for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
Both models are equipped with 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi connectivity capabilities to serve a growing number of devices and M2M applications that require wireless communication. The 2542-WL1 supports analogue I/O connections over Wi-Fi, while the 2512-WL1 supports digital I/O connections over Wi-Fi.
There’s automatic tag generation and reporting for connected sensors and devices to enable operators to monitor a large number of field devices with better efficiency.
This function also works in conjunction with Moxa’s MX-AOPC UA cloud server to minimize network bandwidth and latency. WPA2/802.11i security protects data with advanced encryption and authentication.
Both models, which withstand temperatures between -30 to 70 degrees C, have a 4-port unmanaged ethernet switch and two serial ports, which support data polling from devices using the Modbus RTU protocol. Users convert data into Modbus TCP or AOPC tag format before sending it out over the ethernet network. The units also support communication with multiple remote I/O devices under a single IP address.
