Smart cellular connectivity for the IIoT
October 2016, Industrial Wireless


Moxa’s new ioLogik 2500 cellular I/O series provides smart 4-in-1 data acquisition to meet the fast growing and demanding I/O requirements for hard to wire and IIoT applications. The ioLogik 2500 cellular device combines remote I/O, Ethernet switch, Modbus gateway, and data logger capabilities into one device. Featuring Moxa’s unique smart cellular connectivity, smart data gateway, and smart control logic, the ioLogik 2500 provides reliable cellular I/O communications.

Smart cellular connectivity

The ioLogik 2500 series features dual SIM failover with 3-step cellular reconnection, and dynamic IP access, which provides the most reliable cellular connectivity. The smart cellular reconnection technology recovers from unexpected disconnections automatically by using a sophisticated algorithm that combines (1) trying to reconnect to the cellular network, (2) rebooting the system software, and (3) rebooting the system hardware. Engineers no longer need to go onsite and restart the hardware every time the cellular signal gets disconnected.

Smart data acquisition

The ioLogik 2500’s two serial communication ports can be used to collect data from field devices using the Modbus RTU protocol from sensors and meters at remote sites, and then generate tags to update the value to MX-AOPC UA server in the cloud, which ensures the lowest data transmission cost and provides efficient yet smart device data management.

Smart control logic

The ioLogik 2500 supports Click&Go Plus for front-end I/O intelligence through If-Then-Else control logic for users to configure SMS, email, or SNMP trap alarms for delivering real-time notifications, allowing users to respond more quickly to critical events than would otherwise be possible. The new Click&Go Plus supports graphical logic design and updates to 48 conditions/actions for easier and more powerful control logic deployment.

Other features include:

• Supports cellular (HSPA/GPRS), Ethernet and serial communication.

• New Click&Go Plus logic provides powerful front-end intelligence.

• 4-port unmanaged switch built in for linking to Ethernet devices.

• Optimised I/O expansion port for daisy chaining up to 8 ioLogik E1200 units.

• 2 serial ports (RS-232/422/485) for connecting field devices.

• Built-in data logger supports an FTP server and microSD card with up to 32 GB.

• Transforms Modbus RTU into Modbus TCP or Active Tags.
