The type and range can be remotely selected by issuing commands from a host computer. One type of module satisfies many different tasks, which greatly simplifies design and maintenance. A single kind of module can handle the measurement needs of a whole plant. Since all modules are remotely configured by the host computer, physical adjustments are unnecessary. Easy Plug-in System Integration With ADAM-4000's Modbus I/O, and built-in Modbus/ RTU protocol, any controller using the Modbus/RTU standard can be integrated as part of an ADAM-4000 control system. Any Modbus Ethernet data gateway can upgrade these I/O Modules up to the Modbus/ TCP Ethernet layer. Most HMI software is bundled with a Modbus driver, and can access the ADAM-4000 I/O directly. Moreover, Advantech provides Modbus OPC Server and Modbus/TCP OPC Server as data exchange interfaces between the ADAM-4000 Modbus I/O and any Windows Applications. Communication Module Features Ethernet ADAM-4570 and ADAM-4571 are designed for the connection between serial devices (RS-232/422/485) and Ethernet. With ADAM-4570 or ADAM-4571, you can use graphical control software to monitor and control I/O modules. With existing devices, you can connect to an Ethernet network with the benefits of enhanced host performance and convenience. Fiber Optics If users need to transmit over long distances without noise interference, ADAM-4541 and ADAM-4542+ are designed for this task. The ADAM-4541 is a multi-mode converter, which carries signals from fiber optics to RS- 232/422/485. It offers a transmission distance of up to 2,500 m with a total immunity to electromagnetic noise. The ADAM-4542+ is a single-mode converter, which carries signals from fiber to optics to RS-232/422/485. It offers a transmission distance of up to 15 km with total immunity to electromagnetic noise. USB Communications ADAM-4561/4562 is an one-port isolated USB to RS- 232/422/485 converter. ADAM-4561 can convert USB to RS-232/422/485 with plug-in terminal. The major features of ADAM-4562 are the capability to use 9-wire RS-232, and to get power from the USB port. With 9-wire RS-232 capability, this converter meets the requirements of PLCs, modems, and controller equipment. As a USB-to-serial converter, ADAM-4562 supports Plug & Play, and hot- swapping, which simplifies the configuration process, and it also acts as a power supply for the module. It is no longer necessary to have an external power supply.
