Moxa has launched the new AIG-300 Series of Industrial IoT gateways. Optimized for seamless integration with the Microsoft Azure IoT Edge computing platform, AIG-300 gateways are designed to provide the stable connectivity needed in distributed and unmanned sites to collect, store, process, and analyze operational data from sensors and other Industrial IoT devices.
Moxa AIG-300 gateways are designed to provide a resilient, cost-effective solution for monitoring and diagnosing devices, equipment, assets, facilities, and processes remotely with limited onsite staff, offering fast, more secure sensor-to-cloud connections in remote field locations. The gateways deliver the advanced connectivity needed to share edge data with the cloud for analytic processing and game-changing insights, along with simplified device management so customers can deploy, scale, and maintain their digital transformation initiatives. With the use of the Moxa ThingsPro Proxy utility, device provisioning is also streamlined for improved outcomes.
As edge computing use cases continue to evolve, Moxa AIG-300 gateways enable flexible and secure cloud connectivity by leveraging: Arm Cortex A7 dual-core 1 GHz processors, pre-loaded Azure IoT Edge and Moxa ThingsPro Edge software, and versatile I/O options for Ethernet, CAN, RS-232/422/485, USB, and four digital (DI/DO) interfaces. For system integrators with wireless communication needs, the AIG-300 comes with LTE cellular, GPS and Wi-Fi antenna connectors.
Like all Moxa networking devices, the AIG-300 is built industrial-grade with a DIN-rail enclosure, Class I, Division 2 and ATEX hazardous location ratings, IP30 environment rating, IEC 600068-2 shock and vibration rating, and an extended operating temperature range of -40° to 70° C (-40° to 185° F).
Even when located in harsh remote sites, AIG-300 gateways can be maintained to ensure continuous availability thanks to a combination of Resume File Transmission, Over-The-Air OTA software upgrading, and Secure Boot for prevention of malicious software-injection attacks. To avoid disconnection during a device crash or sudden shutdown, AIG-300 gateways are equipped with built-in recovery functions that automatically rollback to the previous stable version of the firmware to achieve uninterrupted network connectivity. And in the event a software upgrade fails, AIG gateways will automatically revert to the software version in the backup, ensuring system stability.
