Advantech AMAX-5070 ModBus TCP Coupler Enhances System Integration
Taipei, Taiwan, June 2023 – Advantech, a leading provider of Industrial IoT and Automation platforms, has just launched the AMAX-5070 ModBus/TCP coupler which provides simple and robust factory IT/OT system integration. It is a high-density ModBus TCP I/O system which aggregates data collection from all connected I/O modules. AMAX-5070 supports up to 255 different I/O and has a compact form factor with dimensions of only 11 x 3 cm. AMAX-5070 also provides Group IDs and cable redundancy to boost EtherCAT connectivity. These features combine to establish a powerful ModBus TCP DADC system that is easy to set up and remotely control, making it well-suited for factory systems upgrading to Industry 4.0 and beyond.
Small but powerful
The AMAX-5070 ModBus TCP is part of the AMAX-5000 series and offers a maximum DIO of 160 points or AIO of 60 points within a width of only 15 cm. AMAX-5000 series I/O also provides 15 functional modules, from basic analog/digital input and output to encoders and decoders, all managed remotely for a variety of applications.
Field site engineering simplified
The user-friendly design of our Group ID technology enables field site engineers to set up modules with speed and accuracy. Group ID feature automatically matches a coupler’s rotary switch number, which helps engineers quickly synchronize the hardware and software for their applications. Moreover, AMAX-5070 demands only one IP address for a maximum of 255 I/O modules. This overcomes factory IP shortage problems and streamlines maintenance for the IT department.
