Moxa builds AWS Integration into Industrial IoT “Starter Kit”

Moxa, a provider of industrial Internet of Things solutions (IIoT), recently launched a hardware/software bundle to help systems integrators funnel data between edge devices and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The company launched its IIoT Gateway Starter Kit earlier in the month. It is a “ready to use platform that simplifies the development of IIoT solution.” The kit was designed to assist companies in various industrial sectors, such as smart manufacturing and solar and wind power management and electric vehicle charging stations, with data processing, data acquisition, and remote monitoring.
The kit consists of two main components, as shown below. The first component is Moxa’s ThingsPro Gateway platform. It includes the AWS IoT Device development kit. It integrates with AWS Greengrass which was made generally available earlier in the summer and offers cloud-based data management and syncing to IoT devices.
“ThingsPro Gateway allows you to set up tags or devices on AWS IoT. Moxa announced that field data can be transferred to AWS cloud services such as Amazon Kinesis and AWS Lambda to collect, process and store data.
The Moxa IIoT Gateway Starter Kit with AWS Support. The ThingsPro Gateway platform supports AWS and Cirrus Link Sparkplug. The company stated that future releases will include integration with Google IoT Core, Microsoft Azure, and Schneider Wonderware.
The second prong of the IIoT Gateway Starter Kit is the hardware — specifically, Moxa’s UC-8112 Edge Computer, a small, ruggedized appliance that Moxa describes as “an industrial-grade ready-to-deploy communication-centric computing platform.”
The UC-8112 Edge Computer has a 1GHz ARM processor, 512MB RAM, two LAN ports, and two serial ports. You can also use optional wireless accessories to enable Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity (see datasheet here).
Moxa stated that the IIoT Gateway Starter Kit is made up of the UC-8112 Edge Computer hardware as well as ThingsPro Gateway software. This creates a robust, rugged, and powerful platform.
