MOXA: 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
MOXA: Using SNMP for a Ethernet-Based Home Automation System
A startup company was developing a product which provides service partners with an integrated e-services platform that allows customers to remotely monitor and control devices in their home or business. In order to complete their project, the startup needed a control system that could monitor and control the many different devices used by their potential customers, preferably with an open protocol for greater flexibility. SNMP was their first choice, as it is commonly used and well understood in the IT field. The next step was to choose an I/O server to connect to the sensors in a home automation system. System Requirements - Open Ethernet-based procotol - SNMP protocol for I/O control - Compact size to save space - Long-term support and services
MOXA: Monitoring Unmanned Weather Stations
Unmanned weather stations play an essential role in the effort to analyze and predict the world's ever-changing weather patterns. The unmanned stations collect and store large amounts of weather data and then download the data at regular intervals to a back-end host for analysis and long-term storage. The computing device housed in the weather station must be robust enough to work continuously for long periods of time while exposed to a wide range of temperatures. It should also be able to collect readings from various sensors that use different data transmission protocols, and have the capability to store large amounts of data.
MOXA: 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
MOXA: Cellular RTU for Building Beijing Water Pipeline Remote Monitoring Systems
Water pipeline pressure needs to be kept at 0.3 Mpa in order to deliver a reliable stream of tap water to homes, businesses, and factories. Water companies use real-time monitoring systems in order to achieve consistent water pressure management that can quickly respond to any sudden drops of water pressure. System Requirements - Monitor all the distributed pressure points of a widely distributed water pipeline network - Monitor and display in real-time data from every pressure value on the central SCADA system HMI - Stable cellular communications network - High expandability
