Ethernet I/O Modules: ADAM-6000 ADAM-6200 Series Feature ƒ ƒ Daisy chain connection with auto-bypass protection ƒ ƒ Remote monitoring and control with smart phone/pad ƒ ƒ Group configuration capability for multiple module setup ƒ ƒ DI/O LED indication ƒ ƒ Flexible user-defined Modbus address ƒ ƒ Intelligent control ability by Peer-to-Peer and GCL function ƒ ƒ Multiple protocol support: Modbus TCP, TCP/IP, UDP, HTTP, DHCP ƒ ƒ Web language support: XML, HTML 5, Java Script ƒ ƒ System configuration backup ƒ ƒ User Access Control In 2002, Advantech released its first Ethernet I/O module, ADAM-6000 series, which aims to provide ideal remote Ethernet I/O solution for industrial automation environments. It could work as a standalone station to conduct data acquisition, processing and delivery reliably in diverse of automation applications such as factory automation, EFMS and building automation. However, as of today, the information technologies and network infrastructure are getting well-developed in the world. More and more enterprises not only face the requirement of enhancing their existing automation systems for greater overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), but also need up-to-date information integration, plant management and business systems. In the same way, the remote DAQ modules should be evolved to make it more effective, interoperable, and smarter than before to meet new requirements. In the future, there are plenty of potential key elements like intelligence, energy-efficiency, cloud computing, cyber-security and mobile communication technologies being progressively leveraged in automation market. We believe that these will also contribute to ideal remote DAQ devices in IoT world. In order to fulfill the transition of requirements and future applications, Advantech releases ADAM-6200 series, a new selection of Ethernet I/O family comprised of analog I/O, digital I/O and relay modules. ADAM-6200 series module possesses plenty of advanced features whatever the evolution of hardware design and what’s worth expecting for user is a variety of useful software functions to make it effective in the application field. With new design and strong capabilities, ADAM-6200 can be a well-integrated I/O solution in Ethernet control systems.
