Moxa is introducing the OnCell G3100 series industrial modems, capable of transmitting messages over cellular networks.

OnCell G3100 industrial RS-232 or RS-232/422/485 GSM/GPRS/EDEG IP modems from Moxa Technologies Inc. are designed to transmit data and short messages (SMS) over GSM/GPRS/EDEG cellular networks. The Real COM operation mode automatically generates a virtual COM port to match serial ports supported by the OnCell G3100, allowing communication with remote serial devices. The unit’s CPU comes pre-installed with the TCP/IP protocol suite to transmit data between the serial device and cellular TCP/IP network and back.

It also comes with a built-in relay output that can be configured to indicate the priority of events when notifying or warning engineers in the field, and two digital inputs allow connection to basic I/O devices, such as sensors, to the cellular network. It can be mounted on a DIN-rail, and the 12 to 48 V dc power input has 2 kV EFT/surge protection to allow the use of different field power sources; 15 kV ESD line protection for serial ports keeps the system safe from unexpected electrical discharges.

It also supports universal quad-band 850/900/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS and choice of operation modes, including TCP Server, TCP Client, UDP, Real COM driver, and RFC2217. The industrial modem also has secure modes for TCP Server, TCP Client, and Real COM; versatile GSM/GPRS connection modes; redundant DC power input; and LED indicators for status and signal level. Configuration methods include Web console, serial console, and Telnet.

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.
