Courtesy: MoxaMoxa's 4G LTE Jump Start Kit is designed to connect operations to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The kit collects data from industrial devices and transmits that data to a cloud-connected platform. It features a Modbus data logger with built-in 4G LTE communications, a Modbus gateway that connects to most commercially-available programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and remote terminal units (RTUs), and an I/O module to collect analog and digital sensor data.

The core of the 4G LTE Jump Start Kit is a programmable Modbus data logger that runs Debian Linux and is powered by a 1 GHz ARM7 processor. The data logger features Moxa's ThingsPro software, which provides a platform to collect, process, format, customize, and share data from attached devices. This data can be available to any cloud-connected database or platform over the unit's built-in 4G LTE cellular connection for central management, reporting, advanced analytics, and IIoT applications.

In addition to the programmable data logger, the 4G LTE Jump Start Kit includes an I/O module, Modbus gateway, and 4G LTE module. The ioLogik E1242 I/O module supports 4 analog inputs, 4 digital inputs, and 4 digital input/outputs, while the MGate MB3180 Modbus gateway supports any Modbus RS-232/422/485 connection. Different I/O and protocol requirements can also be supported by swapping out other I/O modules and gateways.
