Remote data acquisition devices with Wi-Fi support
Moxa’s ioLogik 2542-WL1 and 2512-WL1 remote data acquisition devices are designed to support Ethernet, serial and WLAN interfaces for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. Both devices feature 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi connectivity; the ioLogik 2542-WL1 supports analog I/O connections over Wi-Fi and the ioLogik 2512-WL1 supports digital I/O connections over Wi-Fi. Both ioLogik units feature automatic tag generation and reporting for connected sensors and devices. This enables operators to monitor a large number of field devices.
The ioLogik 2542-WL1 and 2512-WL1 also feature a 4-port unmanaged Ethernet switch and two serial ports for connection to a variety of field devices. The serial ports support data polling from devices using the Modbus RTU protocol. This data can be converted into Modbus TCP or AOPC tag format before sending it out over the Ethernet network. The units also support communication with multiple remote I/O devices under a single IP address. The slave Ethernet port can link up to eight daisy-chained expansion modules and can convert more than 100 channels to one IP address. The other three Ethernet ports can connect to any Ethernet-driven field device. The ioLogik 2542-WL1 and 2512-WL1 are engineered for rugged industrial use and can withstand -30 to 70 C (-22 to 158 F) operating temperatures. Both units also offer EMI protection and rugged, shock-resistant housing.
