The Internet of Things (IoT) begins with getting the Things connected to the Internet. Connectivity, however, is not always that straightforward in the Industrial IoT, and it is most likely an issue in your organization, where different devices— some maybe as old as 20 years and using different interfaces— make up a considerable part of your communications network. Consequently, most businesses, like yours, have to deal with interoperability and scalability issues, which stand in the way of successfully managing large-scale heterogeneous networks in harsh environments.

Improving Production Line Efficiency with Ethernet Micro RTU Controller
Improving Production Line Efficiency with Ethernet Micro RTU Controller
Moxa was asked to provide a connectivity solution for one of the world's leading cosmetics companies. This multinational corporation, with retail presence in 130 countries, 23 global braches, and over 66,000 employees, sought to improve the efficiency of their production process by migrating from manual monitoring to an automatic productivity monitoring system. The production line was being monitored by ABB Real-TPI, a factory information system that offers data collection and analysis to improve plant efficiency. Due to software limitations, the customer needed an OPC server and a corresponding I/O solution to collect data from additional sensor devices for the Real-TPI system. The goal is to enable the factory information system to more thoroughly collect data from every corner of the production line. This will improve its ability to measure Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and translate into increased production efficiencies. System Requirements • Instant status updates while still consuming minimal bandwidth to relieve strain on limited factory networks • Interoperable with ABB Real-TPI • Small form factor appropriate for deployment where space is scarce • Remote software management and configuration to simplify operations
A Reliable Power Control Automation System for a Steel Factory
A Reliable Power Control Automation System for a Steel Factory
One of the largest steel factories in China needed proper communication control units for data processing and protocol conversion with the devices at remote field sites. These computers would replace the IPCs and can easily create a distributed system at the front-end site with a centralized management platform at the back-end control center. This stainless steel factory has deployed a power substation system that contains several subsystems. Each subsystem uses smart meters, and needs to optimize resources, centralize management, and enhance efficiency. In addition, all distributed smart meters at the field site need to be centrally monitored and managed by a system called the “CCMS3000 central management system”, located at the control center. Each 35KV/10KV substation communicates with the back-end server via Intranet, and manages the centralized management and monitoring of the 35KV/10KV. The entire system aims to optimize the power network management and maintenance cost, enhance power distribution quality and management, and deliver real-time discovery, analysis, recording, and handling of problems. The CCMS300 central management system is expected to bring reliability to real-time monitoring of the operation status of all devices at the substations. It needs to perform several tasks, such as analyzing historical workload, power consumption, and system balance, as well as enhance system or device operation efficiency. This system includes four subsystems: Factory 1: Main Station: A communication cabinet includes a telecommunication control unit (DA-662), a switch, 2 optical transceivers, and communication units. Station C: A communication cabinet includes a serial device server (NPort 5430), an optical transceiver, and communication units. Station D: A communication cabinet includes a serial device server (NPort 5430), an optical transceiver, and communication units. The telecommunication control unit (DA-662) is responsible for collecting and controlling all data from stations A, B, C, D, E, and the water station from Factory 1. Factory 2: Main Station: A communication cabinet includes a telecommunication control unit (DA-662), and various communication units. This DA-662 is responsible for collecting and controlling all data from stations G, K, and the water station from Factory 1. Hot-rolled Factory: Main Station: A communication cabinet includes a telecommunication control unit (DA-662), a switch, an optical transceiver, and communication units. Substation: A communication cabinet includes a serial device server (NPort 5430), an optical transceiver, and communication units. The DA-662 is responsible for collecting and controlling all data from the hot-rolled factory and the hot-rolled water station. Cold-rolled Factory: Main Station: A communication cabinet includes a telecommunication control unit (DA-662), a switch, an optical transceiver, and communication units. Substation: A communication cabinet includes a serial device server (NPort 5430), an optical transceiver, and communication units. The DA-662 is responsible for collecting and controlling all data from the cold-rolled factory and the cold-rolled water station. The communication between the DA-662 and the back-end server is based on the TCP/IP IEC 106 protocol. System Requirements • Centralized and stable management platform for the distributed system • Front-end data processing for the field site devices • Protocol conversion among Modbus, DLT645, and TCP/IP IEC 104 • Redundant network architecture for continuous system operation • Easy integration with other communication system • Long MTBF to enhance system reliability
Intelligent and Active Gas Detection System for Semiconductor Manufacturing
Intelligent and Active Gas Detection System for Semiconductor Manufacturing
As one of the world's largest semiconductor manufacturers, our customer needs to continually refine and expand their manufacturing capabilities to meet the constant, ever-growing demand for electronics products. Semiconductor fabrication requires minute nanometer-scale operations using dangerous chemicals and gases. To continue growing their manufacturing capabilities while maintaining high levels of precision, the manufacturer expanded operations with a new plant which was to incorporate new gas detection alarm technology. System Requirements • Real-time alerts of abnormal gas levels on the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system • Local alarms with local control logic to alert personnel of high gas levels • Mixed analog and digital I/O solution for broader device compatibility • High reliability

Smart Ethernet I/O Solutions
Smart Ethernet I/O Solutions
Moxa’s ioLogik E2200 is a new type of Ethernet micro RTU controller, which is a PC-based data acquisition and control device that uses proactive, event-based reporting to control I/O devices. Unlike traditional RTUs, which are passive and must poll for data, Moxa’s ioLogik E2200 series with Active OPC Server makes seamless connection with SCADA systems a reality. In addition, SNMP is used for communicating with an NMS (Network Management System) for IT field users. The I/O status of an Ethernet micro RTU controller can be reported and controlled automatically on-site based on user specified conditions. This report-by-exception approach, which is new to PC-based monitoring, requires far less bandwidth than traditional polling methods.

OnCell Central Manager
OnCell Central Manager
Cellular networks, in most cases, are located in remote hard-to-reach areas that are spread over different geographical locations. OnCell Central Manager (OCM), Moxa's powerful OnCell device management tool, ensures effective remote management of industrial devices. The OCM tool extends the capabilities of your OnCell cellular gateway to provide fast deployment as well as powerful monitoring and security.The biggest challenge that industries face today is designing a network infrastructure that can meet the constantly evolving industrial communication needs. Industrial networks are heterogeneous communication platforms that have evolved over time to cater to the multifaceted needs of its users. In addition to providing a core network infrastructure, industrial networks must also support the communication needs of the increasing number of devices that are added to the edge networks each day. In this white paper we look at the role of cellular networks in industrial edge networks and discuss how to choose a good cellular network management solution.
