With support for the advanced High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) technology, a so-called 3G or 3.5G protocol, the W5340-HSDPA reduces the response time for I/O status acquisition and control communications. The increased performance also provides enough bandwidth to perform data logging and email alarms. The ioLogik W5340-HSDPA is equipped with a 3G interface that supports both tri-band HSDPA/UMTS and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE functionality, and features 4 AIs, 8 DI/Os, 2 relays, an Ethernet RJ-45 port, a 3-in-1 serial port, and a SD storage socket. This rich feature set is also available in a rugged wide-temperature W5340-HSDPA-T model with a wide operating temperature range of -20 to 70°C for deployment in harsh environments, such as facilities without air-conditioning or roadside cabinets.
The ioLogik W5340-HSDPA excels in remote monitoring or data acquisition applications. The I/O suite includes both digital and analog channels, and can also be externally expanded via Ethernet with the ioLogik E1200 series of Ethernet I/O products (Five models are available, and four more are in the pipeline). An SD storage function is also available for long-term data log preservation. In addition, patented “Active” communications technology and IPSec/VPN functionality allow easy use of the dynamic and private IP addresses provided by most cellular data plans. By using active communications, the Moxa Active OPC Server and DA-Center free software packages are also extremely efficient in “pushing” data from the ioLogik W5340-HSDPA to the SCADA system or IT database quickly, without consuming very much bandwidth. Together, the ioLogik W5340-HSDPA, Moxa Active OPC Server, and DA-Center deliver highly efficient event-driven SCADA connectivity, database/Excel conversions, and analysis. Moreover, the W5340-HSDPA flexibly supports both IT and IA applications thanks to compatibility with the Modbus/TCP industrial standard as well as the IT-oriented SNMP v1/v2c protocol.
The ioLogik W5340-HSDPA includes Moxa’s patented Click&Go™ technology, which makes local I/O control and alarm configuration extremely simple. Powerful features, such as interaction between I/O channels, timer/schedule settings, SMS alarm messages, and TCP/UDP/SNMP traps, can be configured with just a few mouse clicks with Click&Go
