OS and PC info:
Instead of a PC,
it is using a ARM9 RISC CPU. This makes this site more dependable
then using Windows and better for an industrial application. This
box also takes about 1.5% of the power of a PC, the Moxa draws only
4.5 watts. Less heat and less
power means less operating cost. A PC running 24 hours at 300 watts is about $35
per month added to your electric bill based on power depending on
where you live. My nick name for this box is
"MyWxBox" is made
by Moxa with special firmware pre-loaded and available
from Ambient Weather.
