Moxa 3-In-1 Serial Server Wirelessly Connects Devices to Ensure Optimal Manufacturing Performance

BREA, CA, JULY 13, 2017 — Moxa has introduced the new NPort IAW5000A-6I/O, an enterprise-scale, out-of-the-box solution that conveniently integrates a RS-232/422/485 serial device server, a Wi-Fi client/bridge, and multiple digital I/O’s into a single compact device. The new server empowers plant managers to wirelessly connect machinery to an IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n network for the collection, remote monitoring, and analyzing of real-time visual insights on machine performance to ensure optimal manufacturing performance.


The NPort IAW5000A-6I/O allows any RS-232/422/485 serial or Ethernet device in the field to be linked to a wireless device. In addition, its multiple digital I/O’s make the NPort IAW5000A-6I/O ideal for industrial data acquisition where dividends are paid in heightened efficiency, reduced production downtime, and lower overall costs. Also, because it supports baudrates between 50 and 921.6 kbps, the NPort IAW5000A-6I/O ensures reliable connectivity to the widest range of devices.

Despite the numerous gains realized through Industry 4.0 technology, Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) remains stagnant at 60 percent or less for the majority of global manufacturers. The NPort IAW5000A-6I/O can boost underperforming OEE by providing real-time visibility into machine status to let a plant manager accurately adjust the production schedule for improved optimization and decreased overhead costs.

The space-saving 3-in-1 design makes the NPort IAW5000A-6I/O ideal for refurbishment of older machinery, which typically have space limitations, especially when a variety of machines have already been installed.
