Taipei, Taiwan, 2010/11/10 - Moxa is pleased to announce the release of the ioPAC-8020 modular RTU controller, an industrial-grade platform for data acquisition and monitoring.
The ioPAC-8020 combines anti-vibration resilience and wide operating temperature to create an ideal solution for applications in harsh environments, such as rolling stock, wayside cabinet, roadside, environmental monitoring, and train monitoring applications.
The ioPAC-8020 is a rugged RTU controller for front-end data acquisition and monitoring. It is equipped with a powerful processor and a variety of interfaces. The ioPAC-8020 provides access to timely and accurate mission-critical information and can be connected to fixed devices such as PLCs, smart meters and other serial devices. It has two Ethernet switch ports that allow system engineers to easily build control networks with open standards and daisy-chain connectivity. Built-in power redundancy ensures non-stop data transfer to the controller and uninterrupted communications management on the control network. For train-related applications, durable M12 Ethernet connectors and spring-type terminal blocks deliver reliable operations in high vibration environments.
Unlike conventional controllers, the ioPAC-8020 can operate in a wide temperature range from -40 to 75°C. Its aluminum chassis provides exceptional fanless heat dissipation. In addition, the I/O modules are hot-swappable to avoid the inconvenience of extended downtime. With intuitive Click&Go™ control logic, systems engineers can quickly create powerful I/O configurations in just minutes using simple IF-THEN-ELSE statements.
This rugged RTU delivers high system reliability and stability in harsh environments. It is compliant with the EN50155 railway standard and available with a DIN-Rail mounting kit.
