The AWK-1127-PoE Wi-Fi client offers superior convenience, value, and performance by featuring both serial and Ethernet connections, PoE support, and the speedy Turbo Roaming that Moxa is known for. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.The AWK-1127-PoE is a unique product designed to meet the demand for small and cost-effective wireless clients that are built to industrial standards. It is an industry leading device due to its unique combination of cost-effective, industrial form factor, compact size, special software features, and support for serial (RS-232/422/485) and Ethernet to Wi-Fi. 


The AWK-1127-PoE is designed to stand up to harsh industrial environments, with extended temperature models that operate reliably in temperatures from -40 C up to 75 C. In addition, the AWK-1127 may be mounted either by DIN rail or on the wall, while sporting dual 12 to 48 V dc power inputs, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), and an IP30 case with LED indicators. Furthermore, it has a physically rugged design that is also light and super-compact, another first for WLAN clients. With this small, light, and rugged industrial design, the AWK-1127-PoE provides the perfect solution for applications where space is limited and a robust, dedicated client is required.  


The AWK-1127-PoE provides key wireless benefits like mobility, flexibility, wider coverage, and high cost-effectiveness, and is specifically designed for hard-to-wire, tightly spaced applications. Moxa's Turbo Roaming is supported on the AWK-1127-PoE, making wireless roaming so speedy that connectivity gaps are effectively eliminated for latency-sensitive applications like automatic guided vehicles (AGV) in factory automation systems.  


The AWK-1127-PoE also includes a serial port that supports RS232, RS422, and RS485 connections, allowing users with serial and Ethernet devices to connect to wireless networks at the same time. Moxa's well known Real COM modes are supported in the AWK-1127-PoE. The AWK-1127-PoE is designed to be one of the most convenient and reliable Wi-Fi clients for automation applications in the manufacturing, transportation, power, and oil and gas industries.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
