Moxa IIoT Gateway Starter Kit features built in Amazon Web Services support.0
Moxa has launched its IIoT Gateway Starter Kit, which includes built-in support for Amazon Web Services (AWS). The kit provides the essentials needed to get data from edge devices to cloud services. The kit includes a ThingsPro Gateway that provides a Modbus framework to connect with Modbus RTU/TCP devices and SCADA systems. It includes support for 4G connectivity, wireless failover, firewalls and VPN. The gateway also features built-in client support for services such as AWS IoT and Cirrus Link Sparkplug. The AWS IoT Device SDK lets users set up tags and devices on AWS IoT and transfer field data to various AWS cloud services for data storage and processing. The gateway’s built-in Cirrus Link Sparkplug SDK lets users connect to the Inductive Automation Ignition Platform or another MQTT server.
In addition to the gateway, the kit includes the UC-8112 Edge Computer, an industrial-grade computing platform with a 1 GHz ARM processor, 512 MB RAM, two LAN ports and two serial ports. Featuring a wide operable temperature range (-40 to 75°C), the edge computer can use a range of wireless accessories available to add LTE or Wi-Fi connectivity if needed.
