Moxa's ioPAC 5542-HSPA is a compact hardened cellular RTU controller that provides remote network connectivity and data acquisition to edge device. The device can be deployed in railway and oil and gas industries. Courtesy: MoxaMoxa's ioPAC 5542-HSPA combines the features of a data logger, cellular modem, serial gateway, remote IO, and an embedded computer into one. Users can monitor remote field devices by relaying status information over the internet via a cellular connection back to a central operation center. ioPAC 5542-HSPA provides a -30 C to 75 C operating temperature range. The device is compliant to UL/cUL class 1 division 2 and ATEX zone 2 certified for deployment in oil and gas facilities. It is also designed for applications in the railway industry.

The ioPAC 5542-HSPA has a multi-processor design which includes an ARM9 to manage the core Linux operating system and an ARM Cortex-M4 to manage the IO sampling sub-system. This combination allows the device to push data from sensors as high as 2000 samples/second (2kHz) across all channels. The ioPAC also includes a suite of software tools for both systems integrators (SI) as well as original equipment manufacturers (OEM). It is equipped with a ARM-Linux operating system (OS) and a cross-compile tool-chain for developers to build custom applications. Custom protocols can be developed for the dual 10/100 Base Ethernet ports and the two 3-in-1 serial ports. Basic Modbus and ActiveTAG API Libraries are included to help integrators get their applications quickly past the basic code components.
