Moxa’s embedded system for power

January 2016 Industrial Computer Hardware

Moxa has announced the release of the new DA-681 x86-based embedded computer, a tailored embedded system for power automation, especially power substation applications.

The DA-681 computer is based on the Intel x86 processor. Specially designed for power substation applications, the DA-681 supports VGA, 6 Ethernet ports, 4 RS-232 and 8 RS-485 serial ports with digital isolation, CompactFlash, and USB. It features multiple serial ports and LANs for network redundancy. The DP and PP models are also equipped with dual power for power redundancy. The patented ‘L-type’ heat dissipation mechanism is exclusive to Moxa and offers better thermal efficiency. With a standard 19-inch, 1U high form factor and rack mountable design, the unit makes an ideal platform for substation automation.

The system runs Linux, WinCE 6.0, or Windows XP Embedded (pre-installed), providing a friendly environment for developing sophisticated application software. The great software support that Moxa provides makes the programmer’s job easier, and helps programmers develop bug-free code quickly and at a lower cost.

Ready-to-run Rcore embedded software platform

All of Moxa’s embedded computers come with the operating system pre-installed. In addition, middleware, sample code, and tools are provided to give programmers a user-friendly environment for application development, essentially minimising the effort for system integration.
