168_MoxaUC-8100_zps47e876d6Moxa’s 4G LTE-enabled UC-8100 RISC embedded computing platform handles growing complexities in Smart Grid energy systems with greater computing power, larger storage capacity and flexible wireless connectivity.

It adapts to a variety of complex communication and processing solutions, both as a platform and as a secure gateway for data acquisition and in-the-field processing.

Moxa, a developer of industrial computing and networking products based in Brea, Calif., says the system is built around an ARMv7 Cortex-A8 processor and equipped with two RS-422/485 serial ports and dual auto-sensing 10/100 Mbps ethernet LAN ports. A Mini PCIe socket supports a cellular interface and other modules.

Programmable LEDs define unique event signalling for debugging or for building troubleshooting tools. A compact, space-saving form factor with a standard DIN rail mount makes installation easy.

The trusted platform module (TPM) protects against network attacks and a patented secure boot algorithm defends kernel corruption.

Native support for Modbus makes sensor installation convenient, and there’s ample room for memory expansion with SD or mini SD cards.
