Moxa has released the W406, a RISC-based wireless embedded Linux or WinCE computer, which includes four DI/DOs, GSM/GPRS/EDGE, and support for SMS to allow seamless communication and management with industrial applications anytime and anywhere. It features two software selectable RS-232/422/485 ports and one Ethernet port, and comes with an SD socket, USB host and four digital input and four digital output channels. Network systems can use long-range cellular applications to extended their reach and users can create peer-to-peer, distributed wireless communication with embedded systems by converting traditional wired devices to wireless. W406-T models have a wide operating temperature range of –40ºC to 70ºC.
