Moxa announces the release of the ioLogik W5340-HSPA, a wide temperature a cellular remote I/O device for remote monitoring applications over mobile networks. With support for the advanced High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSPA) technology, the device reduces 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 product 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 feature set is also available in a rugged wide-temperature W5340-HSPA-T model with a wide operating temperature range of -30 to 70°C (-22 to 158°F) for deployment in harsh environments, such as facilities without air-conditioning or roadside cabinets.
The device excels in remote monitoring or data acquisition applications. The I/O suite includes both digital and analog channels, and can also be externally expanded via Ethernet with the ioLogik E1200 series of Ethernet I/O products (Ten models are available, and four more are in the pipeline). An SD storage function is also available for long-term data log preservation. In addition, patented "Active" communications technology and IPSec/VPN functionality allow easy use of the dynamic and private IP addresses provided by most cellular data plans.
