Introduction
The Moxa UC-7110/7112 series of embedded computers are RISC-based, box-type computers that feature
dual 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports, two RS-232/422/485 serial ports, and an ARM9 processor. The computers
come with Linux pre-installed. In addition, the UC-7112 Plus and UC-7112 have an internal SD socket for
storage expansion to offer high performance communication with unlimited storage in a super-compact,
palm-size box. The UC-7110/7112 series of embedded computers are the right solution for embedded
applications that call for a small computer, but that can store large amounts of memory and provide good
computing performance.

Introduction
Overview
The UC-7110/7112 series of RISC-based communication platforms are ideal for embedded applications. All
three computers in the series (UC-7110, UC-7112, and UC-7112 Plus) come with 2 RS-232/422/485 serial
ports and dual 10/100 Mbps Ethernet LAN ports to provide users with a versatile communication platform.
The UC-7110/7112 series computers use the Moxa ART ARM9 192 MHz RISC CPU. Unlike the x86 CPU, which
uses a CISC design, the ARM9’s RISC design architecture and modern semiconductor technology provide these
computers with a powerful computing engine and communication functions, but without generating too much
heat. The built-in NOR Flash ROM (8 MB for UC-7110/7112, 16 MB for UC-7112 Plus) and SDRAM (16 MB for
UC-7110/7112, 32 MB for UC-7112 Plus) give you plenty of storage capacity, and the SD socket provides
greater flexibility for running various applications. The dual LAN ports built into the ARM9 allow the UC-71xx
computers to be used as communication platforms for basic data acquisition and protocol conversion
applications, and the two RS-232/422/485 serial ports allow you to connect a variety of serial devices.
The UC-7110 and UC-7112 come with the µClinux operating system pre-installed, and the UC-7112 Plus comes
with the Linux operating system with MMU support pre-installed. Software written for desktop PCs is easily
ported to the UC-71xx computers with a GNU cross complier, so that you will not need to spend time modifying
existing software code. The operating system, device drivers, and your own software can all be stored in the
computers’ Flash memory.

Hardware Introduction
Internal SD Socket
The UC-7112 and UC-7112 Plus have an internal SD socket for storage expansion that accepts Secure Digital
(SDHC) SD 2.0 memory cards, for up to 16 GB of additional memory in the UC-7112 Plus, or 32 GB in the
UC-7112.
Additional Functions
Reset Button
Press the “RESET” button continuously for more than 5 seconds to load the factory default configuration. After
loading the factory defaults, the system will reboot automatically. The System Ready LED will blink for the first
5 seconds. We recommend that you only use this function if the software is not working properly. To reset the
µClinux system software, always use the software reboot command (reboot) to protect the integrity of the data
being transmitted. The reset button is NOT designed to hard reboot the UC-7110/7112 series embedded
computer.
ATTENTION
For the UC-7110-LX and UC-7112-LX, resetting the embedded computer to factory defaults will NOT cause the
user directory to be reformatted, and the user's data will NOT be deleted. The reset button only causes a
configuration file to be loaded. All files in the /etc directory will revert to their factory defaults, but all other user
data will remain intact in the Flash ROM.
For the UC-7112-LX Plus, resetting the embedded computer to factory defaults WILL cause the user directory
to be reformatted; the files in the /home directory will be deleted, and all files in the /etc directory will revert
to their factory defaults, but all other user data will remain intact in the Flash ROM.
Please note that if there is a problem with the /etc directory, the embedded computer may be unable to restore
the factory default settings.
ATTENTION
This function only takes effect when the user directory is working correctly. If the user directory has crashed,
the kernel will automatically load the factory defaults.
Real Time Clock
The real time clock in the UC-71xx embedded computers is powered by a lithium battery. We strongly
recommend that you get help from Moxa’s technical support team to replace the lithium battery. If the battery
needs to be changed, contact the Moxa RMA service team for RMA service.
ATTENTION
The battery may explode if replaced by an incorrect type. To avoid this potential danger, always be sure to use
the correct type of battery.

UC-7112-LX Plus/UC-7112/UC-7110 Hardware
Hardware Connection Description
Wiring Requirements
This section explains how to connect the UC-71xx embedded computers to serial devices.
You should heed the following safety precautions before installing any electronic device:
•
Use separate paths for power wiring and wiring for 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.
•
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.
•
Keep input wiring and output wiring separate.
•
It is advisable to label the wiring to all devices in the system.
ATTENTION
Safety First!
Be sure to disconnect the power cord before installing and/or wiring your UC-71xx embedded computer.
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-71xx embedded computer. When plugged in, the computer’s internal
components generate heat, and consequently the outer casing may feel hot to the touch.
Connecting the Power
Connect the “live-wire” end of the 12-48 VDC power adaptor to the UC-71xx’s terminal block. If the power is
supplied properly, the “Ready” LED will glow a solid green color after a 25 to 30 second delay.
Grounding the UC-71xx Embedded Computers
Grounding and wire routing help limit the effects of noise due to electromagnetic interference (EMI). Run the
ground wire from the ground screw to the grounding surface prior to connecting devices.
ATTENTION
This product should be mounted on 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 in the figure at the left. Connect
the SG wire to an appropriate grounded metal surface.

Hardware Connection Description
Connecting Data Transmission Cables
This section describes how to connect the UC-71xx to the network, to serial devices, and to a serial COM
terminal.
Connecting to the Network
Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the UC-71xx’s 10/100M Ethernet port, and the other end of the cable
to the Ethernet network. If the cable is properly connected, the UC-71xx will indicate a valid connection to the
Ethernet in the following ways:
•
The top-right LED on the connector glows a solid green when connected to a 100 Mbps Ethernet network.
•
The top-left LED on the connector glows a solid orange when connected to a 10 Mbps Ethernet network.
•
The LEDs will flash when Ethernet packets are being transmitted or received.
The 10/100 Mbps Ethernet LAN 1 and LAN 2 ports use 8-pin RJ45 connectors. Pinouts for these ports are given
in the following diagram.

The two serial ports (P1 and P2) use male DB9 connectors, and can be configured for RS-232/422/485 by
software. The pin assignments are shown in the following table:
