Wireless IoT Sensing Devices Low Power Consumption Design The ADAM-2000 series is designed for applications that require long-time operation without maintenance. Therefore power consumption is taken into consideration during its design. The ADAM-2000 series not only follows the IEEE 802.15.4 standard for low-power consumption wireless communication, but also optimizes the peripheral hardware and firmware design to achieve uA-level power consumption. This allows ADAM-2000 input/output and sensor modules to be powered by 2 AA Alkaline batteries*. * WesuggestusingEnergizerL91UltimateLithiumAAbatteries. * Only the ADAM-2031Z and ADAM-2051Z support low power consumption. For other modules batteries can still be used as back-up power. M2M I/O Modules Overview Modbus RTU Protocol 2.4GHz IEEE 802.15.4 Low-power Consumption Features Advantech's ADAM-2000 Series are wireless I/O devices designed for industrial systems and applications. ADAM-2000 Series Advantech provides ADAM-2000 series industrial grade Wireless Sensor Network I/O solutions for low-power consumption, cost-efficient and reliable networking for remote monitoring applications. It utilizes IEEE 802.15.4 wireless technology and supports star, tree and mesh topologies. Once the modules are configured, the ADAM-2000 series will automatically construct the most suitable network topology for your control system without further configuration. The ADAM-2000 series contains several models, including coordinator (gateway), router, analog input, digital input, and sensor modules. To perform as a Wireless Sensor Network, a gateway ADAM-2520Z is essential for collecting data from end nodes. With the Modbus RTU protocol, the ADAM-2000 series can be easily integrated into any SCADA or Modbus RTU compliant system. ƒ ƒ ADAM-2520Z: Wireless Modbus RTU Gateway ƒ ƒ ADAM-2510Z: Wireless Router ƒ ƒ ADAM-2017PZ: Wireless 6-ch Analog Input Node with Power Amplifier ƒ ƒ ADAM-2031Z: Wireless Temperature & Humidity Sensor Node ƒ ƒ ADAM-2051Z: Wireless Sensor Network 8-ch Digital Input Node ƒ ƒ ADAM-2051PZ: Wireless Sensor Network 8-ch Digital Input Node with Power Amplifier Global Deployable ISM 2.4GHz IEEE 802.15.4 Standard The standard has the following benefits. ƒ ƒ With the global deployable ISM 2.4 GHz RF band, the ADAM-2000 series can be installed worldwide. ƒ ƒ Compared to a wired solution, wireless technology makes the network easily extendible and can be installed in almost any location, especially in distributed construction applications. ƒ ƒ Enhances transmission power and high gain antennas can expand network coverage. ƒ ƒ Enlarges highly effective network structure to reduce development costs and maintainable complexity in harsh applications. ƒ ƒ Provides self-forming and self-healing ability to cope with communication failures or node failures conditions. ƒ ƒ Low data rates and low duty cycles make it possible to act as standalone devices with batteries for a long term operation without maintenance. Industrial Communication and I/O Interfaces The popular industrial communication protocol Modbus makes the ADAM-2000 series easy to integrate with industrial systems and is also compliant with ADAM-4000 and ADAM-6000 wired solutions. Multiple I/O interface selection provides users plentiful sensor options. Chapter 14 Table of Contents Table of Contents
