Introduction
Overview
The UC-8410 features 8 RS-232/422/485 serial ports, 3 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports, 4 digital
input channels and 4 digital output channels, a CompactFlash slot for flash disk expansion, and 2
USB ports for adding additional memory (such as a USB Flash disk).
The UC-8410 uses an Intel XScale IXP-435 533 MHz RISC CPU. Unlike the X86 CPU, which
uses a CISC design, the IXP-425’s RISC design architecture and modern semiconductor
technology provide the UC-8410 with a powerful computing engine and communication functions,
but without generating a lot of heat. The built-in 16 MB NOR Flash ROM and 256 MB SDRAM
give you enough memory to run your application software directly on the UC-8410. Since the dual
LAN ports are built into the IXP-425 CPU, the UC-8410 is good solution for network security
applications.

Reset Button
The button labeled Reset returns the UC-8410 to its factory default configuration.
Press the Reset button continuously for at least 5 seconds to load the factory default
configuration. After the factory default configuration has been loaded, the system will reboot
automatically. The Ready LED will blink on and off for the first 5 seconds, and then maintain a
steady glow once the system has rebooted.
We recommend that you only use this function if the software is not working properly and you
want to load factory default settings. To reset an embedded Linux system, always use the software
reboot command />reboot to protect the integrity of data being transmitted or processed.
ATTENTION
Reset button preserves user’s data
The Reset button will NOT format the user directory and erase the user’s data. Pressing the
Reset button will only load the configuration file. All files in the /etc directory will revert to their
factory defaults, but other user data will still exist in the Flash ROM.
Real Time Clock
The UC-8410’s real time clock is powered by a lithium battery. We strongly recommend that you
do not replace the lithium battery without help from a qualified Moxa support engineer. If you
need to change the battery, contact the Moxa RMA service team.
WARNING
There is a risk of explosion if the battery is replaced by an incorrect type.

Wiring Requirements
ATTENTION
Safety First!
Be sure to disconnect the power cord before installing and/or wiring your UC-8410.
Wiring Caution!
Calculate the maximum possible current in each power wire and common wire. Observe all
electrical codes dictating the maximum current allowable for each wire size.
If the current goes above the maximum ratings, the wiring could overheat, causing serious
damage to your equipment.
Temperature Caution!
Be careful when handling the UC-8410. When plugged in, the UC-8410’s internal components
generate heat, and the outer casing may feel hot to the touch.
You should also observe the following common wiring rules:
y Use separate paths to route wiring for power and devices. If power wiring and device wiring
paths must cross, make sure the wires are perpendicular at the intersection point.
NOTE: Do not run signal or communication wiring and power wiring in the same wire conduit.
To avoid interference, wires with different signal characteristics should be routed separately.
y You can use the type of signal transmitted through a wire to determine which wires should be
kept separate. The rule of thumb is that wiring that shares similar electrical characteristics can
be bundled together.
y Keep input wiring and output wiring separate.
y Where necessary, we strongly recommend that you label wiring to all devices in the system.
Connecting the Power
The UC-8410 has a 3-pin terminal block for a 12 to 48 VDC power input.
The following figures show how the power input interface connects to external power source. If
the power is properly supplied, t the Ready LED will illuminate with a solid green color after 30
to 60 seconds have passed.
ATTENTION
The power for this product is intended to be supplied by a Listed Power Supply Unit that is rated
to deliver 12 to 48 VDC at a minimum of 1280 mA for 12 VDC, and 300 mA for 48 VDC.

UC-8410 Hardware User’s Manual
Hardware Connection Description
Grounding the UC-8410
Grounding and wire routing help limit the effects of noise due to electromagnetic interference
(EMI). Run the ground connection from the ground screw to the grounding surface prior to
connecting devices.
ATTENTION
This product is intended to be mounted to a well-grounded mounting surface, such as a metal
panel.
SG: The Shielded Ground (sometimes called Protected Ground) contact is the
left most contact of the 3-pin power terminal block connector when
viewed from the angle shown here. Connect the SG wire to an appropriate
grounded metal surface.
SG
ATTENTION
A shielded-type power cord is required in order to meet FCC emission limits and also to prevent
interference to nearby radio and television reception. It is essential that only the supplied power
cord be used.
You are cautioned that changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible
for compliance could void your authority to operate the equipment.
Connecting to the Network
Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to one of the UC-8410’s 10/100M Ethernet ports (8-pin
RJ45) and the other end of the cable to the Ethernet network. If the cable is properly connected,
the UC-8410 will indicate a valid connection to the Ethernet in the following ways:

The lower right corner LED indicator maintains a solid
green color when the cable is properly connected to a
100 Mbps Ethernet network. The LED will flash on and
off when Ethernet packets are being transmitted or
received.
The lower left corner LED indicator maintains a solid
orange color when the cable is properly connected to a
10 Mbps Ethernet network. The LED will flash on and
off when Ethernet packets are being transmitted or
received.
