Four Ethernet/IP-based remote modules released

Advantech released four Ethernet modules in their ADAM-6100 series, which are designed to be resistant to field interference in places like factories

07/28/2011


Advantech introduced four new EtherNet/IP-based remote I/O modules; the ADAM-6150EI, a 15-ch Isolated Digital Input/Output Module, the ADAM-6151EI, a 16-ch Isolated Digital Input Module, the ADAM-6156EI, a 16-ch Isolated Digital Output Module, and the ADAM-6160EI, a 6-ch Relay Output Module. 

Designed with 2,500 VDC isolation protections, these modules are reportedly very resistant to field interference. They are equipped with the EtherNet/IP protocol and allow daisy chain connections, making it possible to transfer data much faster during process control and other industrial automation applications. Daisy chain connectivity provides a more scalable system with fewer wires to help avoid interference common in factory settings.

The ADAM-6100 series can be mounted in different ways depending on different field situations, such as DIN-rail mounting, wall mounting, and piggybacked. Advantech’s ADAM.NET Utility reportedly comes bundled with each ADAM-6100 module, allowing users to configure, set, and test ADAM-6100 modules through Ethernet.
