Moxa offers up new rugged edge computing systems for the cold, cruel world

In outdoor and harsh conditions that are typical of sectors such as mining, oil and gas, smart cities, and utilities, implementing AIoT technologies in real-world applications poses many challenges including size, power, and environmental constraints.

Moxa is addressing those challenges with its newly launched MC-1220 Series rugged edge computers featuring a high-performance Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processor and multiple expansion interfaces. According to the announcement, the expansion interfaces can incorporate hardware accelerators, such as VPUs, and support Intel OpenVINO toolkit for AIoT application development.

The computers, designed based on Moxa’s expertise in building rugged computing platforms, can operate in a wide operating temperature range and are C1D2/ATEX Zone 2 certified for deployments in outdoor and hazardous environments. The ultra-compact fanless computers are also one of the world’s smallest industrial computers that come with Intel Core i7 processors, making it easy to fit them in small cabinets at field sites.

MC-1220 Series computers support multiple Wi-Fi/cellular connectivity options for remote applications, eliminating the need for an additional wireless gateway, saving cost and space. The computing platform also features TPM 2.0 technology for enhanced hardware security.

With a combination of high-performance, rugged design, compact size, wireless connectivity, and enhanced security, Moxa says the MC-1220 Series is ideal for mission-critical, heavy-duty edge computing applications that can fuel the AIoT era.
