Moxa announces the new ioLogik W5340-HSPA, a wide temperature cellular remote I/O device for remote monitoring applications over mobile networks.
The ioLogik W5340-HSPA supports the advanced High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSPA) technology, reducing the response time for I/O status acquisition and control communications. The increased performance also provides enough bandwidth to perform data logging and email alarms.
The ioLogik W5340-HSPA is equipped with a cellular interface that supports both five band UMTS/HSPA+ and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE functionality, and features 4 AIs, 8 DI/Os, 2 relays, an Ethernet RJ-45 port, a 3-in-1 serial port, and a SD storage socket. This rich feature set is also available in a rugged wide-temperature W5340-HSPA-T version with a wide operating temperature range of -30°C to 70°C for deployment in harsh environments, such as facilities without air-conditioning or roadside cabinets.
The ioLogik W5340-HSPA excels in remote monitoring or data acquisition applications. The I/O suite includes both digital and analogue channels, and can also be externally expanded via Ethernet with the ioLogik E1200 series of Ethernet I/O products.
Key features of Moxa ioLogik W5340-HSPA also include SD storage function for long-term data log preservation; patented ‘Active’ communications technology and IPSec/VPN functionality for easy use of dynamic and private IP addresses; support for both IT and IA applications thanks to compatibility with Modbus/TCP industrial standard as well as IT-oriented SNMP v1/v2c protocol; and patented Click&Go technology, which makes local I/O control and alarm configuration extremely simple.
Click&Go allows quick and simple configuration of powerful features such as interaction between I/O channels, timer/schedule settings, SMS alarm messages, and TCP/UDP/SNMP traps. By using active communications, the Moxa Active OPC Server and DA-Center free software packages are also extremely efficient in pushing data from the ioLogik W5340-HSPA to the SCADA system or IT database quickly, without consuming a lot of bandwidth. Together, the ioLogik W5340-HSPA, Moxa Active OPC Server, and DA-Center deliver highly efficient event-driven SCADA connectivity, database/Excel conversions, and analysis.
