High-performance rackmount computers for Industry 4.0

Technews Industry Guide: Industrial Internet of Things & Industry 4.0 IT in Manufacturing

With more and more companies implementing IIoT applications, the demand to connect hundreds or thousands of devices to industrial automation systems has increased dramatically. Moxa’s DA-720, a high-performance industrial-grade x86 platform, is ideal for such applications. It is based on the Intel 6th Gen Skylake processor and provides a high density of gigabit-Ethernet and serial ports in a 48 cm2U rack-mountable case, making it an ideal choice for IIoT applications in power substations, railways, factories and building automation systems.

High flexibility for versatile applications

The DA-720 comes with high performance Intel Core i5 or i7 CPU options that allow system designers to install the mSATA, RAM, and operating system according to their application requirements. The computer is also provided with expandable serial and Ethernet interfaces to enable easy connectivity with a multitude of field devices that have various data processing needs.

High reliability to ensure 24/7 operation

Moxa’s DA-720 series rugged fanless computers are designed to operate reliably in harsh industrial environments. They have passed rigorous tests for adherence to safety standards, including continuous exposure to high voltage, power surges and shock.

Easy maintainability to reduce system downtime

Automation computers are often located at unmanned or remote sites. To ensure maximum uptime, the DA-720 supports Moxa’s Proactive Monitoring utility, which provides real-time information about the status of the computer hardware and triggers alerts based on user-defined criteria for predictive maintenance. The Smart Recovery utility allows engineers to automatically trigger OS recovery at remote locations to minimise system downtime.
