Feb. 12, 2024
Moxa’s x86 IPC line is customizable in many regards and ready to meet industrial demand.

High demand for IPCs

Moxa recently announced its release of a new line of x86 industrial computers (IPCs) with “exceptional reliability, adaptability, and longevity to address the increasing demands of data connectivity and real-time processing of large volumes of sensor and device data at the industrial edge.”

Moxa cites ABI Research’s research report on Industrial Automation Harward Innovation: PLCs, IPCs and HMIs, which states that the IPC market will have the highest growth rate among the three industrial automation hardware types (IPC, PLC, HMI) markets, with spending going up by a CAGR of 6% and from $11 billion to $19.7 billion between 2023 to 2033.

The company’s x86 IPC families include the BXP, DRP, and RKP series in a multitude of form factors, adaptable interface combinations, and includes a variety of options for Intel processors, leading to a total of 75 unique models.

Jonas Chen, head of x86 IPC Business at Moxa, commented on the portfolio saying, “To see strong growth in the IPC market, we have deployed an innovative process to create a new-generation IPC portfolio to tackle customer issues when purchasing IPCs, including product life-cycle costs, product features such as fanless design and easy configuration options, as well as life-cycle services“

Features of the Moxa x86 IPCs

The BXP, DRP, and RKP series are fanless computers made to operate reliably in harsh environments. The sealed design effectively dissipates heat and reduces unexpected maintenance and system failure. This keeps the POS systems for transportation and gas stations running 24/7, which is imperative with the harsh conditions and high amounts of data processing in these environments.

Moxa’s x86 IPC family comes with a 3-year hardware warranty and the series’ have three form factors dependent on the installation type, which includes wall-mount, DIN-rail mount, and rackmount options. Customers can choose the best installation type for their application scenario, particularly when considering space constraints and installation costs.

Depending on the series, a variety of interface combinations top up the base models to provide models with up to 12 LAN ports and 10 serial ports. The Moxa x86 IPCs are powered by an Intel Atom, Intel Celeron, or Intel Core. On top of this, the configure-to-order (CTO) service has a variety of operating systems, memory, and storage options, allowing more manageable system assembly and a faster time to market.
