RS-485 I/O Modules: ADAM-4000 ADAM-4100 Series Introduction The robust ADAM-4000 family includes the ADAM-4100 series modules, ADAM-4510I and ADAM-4520I modules. The ADAM-4100 series are compact, versatile sensor-to-computer interface units designed for reliable operation in harsh environments. Their built-in microprocessors, encased in rugged industrial-grade ABS+PC plastic, independently provide intelligent signal conditioning, analog I/O, digital I/O, LED data display, and an address mode with an user-friendly design for convenient address reading. The ADAM-4510I and ADAM-4520I modules are robust industrial-grade communication modules. The ADAM-4000 robust family is designed to endure more severe and adverse environments. The operating temperature is -40 ~ 85°C which makes them suitable for more widespread applications. Broader Operating Temperature Range The ADAM-4000 robust family supports a broad operating temperature range of -40 to 85°C. Higher Noise Immunity In order to prevent noise from affecting your system, the ADAM-4000 robust family has been designed with more protection to counteract these effects. New standard features include: 1 kV surge protection on power inputs, 3 kV EFT, and 8 kV ESD protection. Broader Power Input Range The ADAM-4000 robust family accepts any unregulated power source between 10 and 48 VDC. In addition, they are also protected against accidental power reversals, and can be safely connected or disconnected without disturbing a running network. New Features for I/O Modules ƒ ƒ ADAM-4117/4118 1. Supports 200 VDC High Common Mode voltage 2. Software Filter 3. Supports Auto Optimized Working Frequency 4. Auto noise rejection at 50/60 Hz 5. Higher over voltage protection ±60 VDC 6. Optional Sampling Rate 10 or 100 samples/sec 7. Supports unipolar and bipolar input (ADAM-4117 only) 8. Supports ±15V input range (ADAM-4117 only) ƒ ƒ ADAM-4150 1. Over current and temperature protection circuit 2. DI channels support counter (32-bit, overflow flag) and frequency type signal input 3. DO channels support pulse (1 kHz) and delay (high-to-low and low-to-high) type signal output 4. Support invert DI status ƒ ƒ ADAM-4168 1. Supports 1 kHz pulse output ADAM-4100 Module with LED Display The ADAM-4100 series modules have a LED display that lets you monitor the channel status. Using ADAM- 4117/4118, the LED will be lit when related channel is active. Using ADAM-4150/4168, the LED will be lit when related channel value is high. The ADAM-4100 series modules have two operating modes (initial and normal), unlike the old module using extra wiring, ADAM-4100 modules can use the switch on the case to set "initial" modeor"normal"mode.Itisveryconvenientfortheuserto configure. When you set to "initial" mode, the LED display can represent the node address of that module. Besides, when you use multiple ADAM-4100 series modules, you can locate the module through ADAM utility and LED display. All of these functions are very helpful to diagnose the ADAM-4100 series system. Designed for Severe Industrial Environments Online Firmware Updates The ADAM-4100 series modules have a friendly and convenient design where firmware can be updated through a local network or the Internet. You can easily update latest firmware using utility on host PC. This saves time and ensures that the module always runs with the latest functional enhancements. Legacy Communication Protocol Support To satisfy both the current ADAM users, and Modbus users, The ADAM-4100 series modules support both the ADAM (ASCII) protocol and the Modbus/RTU protocol. You can select the communication mode you want through the Windows Utility Software. The Modbus protocol not only supports the original data format (N, 8, 1) for (parity check, data bit, stop check) but also accepts (N,8,1) (N, 8, 2) (E, 8, 1) (O, 8, 1).
