For more than 20 years, Advantech offers versatile remote I/O module to the market. The recent launched Ethernet I/O and Wireless I/O which are broadly used in IoT or other industrial applications, such as facility monitoring, environment monitoring, and industrial process control. Advantech distributed remote I/O modules are categorized into two families, Ethernet I/O (ADAM-6000 series) and RS-485 I/O (ADAM-4000 series), which are subdivided into Analog I/O and Digital I/O modules. Some of them support Modbus RTU communication protocol.
Advantech's new generation of remote I/O & sensing devices bring an IT oriented spirit to the market. With the advanced concepts of data A-P-P, data Acquisition, data Processing to data Publishing, fulfilling mobile monitoring and controlling needs under an IoT framework. Broad adoptability has made WISE a reliable source of big data which benefits users in identifying their next steps and which action to take. With intelligent processing and publishing features, the time it takes to generate insightful reports can be shortened. Thus users can quickly notice and identify possible issues and system downtime can be minimized or even avoided.
Advantech's Ethernet I/O Modules, ADAM-6000 series, accomplishes this integration easily through the latest internet technology, so that it can remotely monitor the device status more flexibly. ADAM-6000 modules are empowered by Peer-to-Peer (P2P) and Graphic Condition Logic (GCL), and can perform as standalone products for measurement, control and automation with Advantech's P2P and GCL technology. With the easy-to-use and intuitive graphic utility, system configurations can be done in an extremely short time. ADAM-6000 series models include Analog Input/Output Modules and Digital Input/Output Modules.
Advantech’s RS-485 I/O Modules, ADAM-4000 series, are the perfect choice for establishing a cost-effective remote I/O system. Customers can benefit from ADAM-4000 modules through its simple wiring using only two wires to communicate with their controller or other RS-485 devices. ADAM-4000 modules use the EIA RS-485 communication protocol; the industry's most widely used bi-directional, balanced transmission line suitable for industrial environments.
Advantech’s Wireless I/O Modules, the ADAM-2000 series, are revolutionary products for data acquisition. Based on the IEEE 802.15.4 wireless standard, networks can be easily deployed and extended. Moreover, low rates and low duty cycles make it possible for them to act as standalone devices, providing cost-effective distributed I/O solutions. With the popular industrial communication protocol Modbus RTU, Our Wireless I/O Modules, ADAM-2000 series products can be adapted into any SCADA or industrial system with Advantech products, such as IPCs, ADAM, EKI, or WebAccess.
ADAM-5000 PC-based SCADA controllers, including the ADAM I/O series, feature an Intel Atom D510 CPU along with control specific features such as watchdog timer, battery backup RAM and deterministic I/O and acts as a automation controller..It’s Programmable Automation controller feature enables it’s functionally in industrial conditions.
Serial Media Converter and Repeaters provide conversion between serial networks and other media. Our Serial Media Converter can transparently convert RS-232 signals to RS-422/485 signals, as well as wireless and fiber optic signals. Most industrial computer systems come with standard RS-232 serial ports. Though widely accepted, RS-232 has limited transmission speed, range and networking capabilities. The RS-422/485 standards overcome these limitations by using differential voltage lines for data and control signals. Advantech’s Serial Media Converter and Repeaters with sophisticated industry technique offer more efficiency of transmit for you.
