High-speed analog input modules

New series of RTD and analog input modules from Advantech add advanced functionality.

12/27/2010


Advantech has introduced two new I/O modules, an eight-channel resistance temperature device (RTD) module (APAX-5013), and a 12-channel high-speed analog Input module (APAX-5017H). The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech has introduced two new I/O modules, an eight-channel resistance temperature device (RTD) module (APAX-5013), and a 12-channel high-speed analog Input module (APAX-5017H). These new modules provide advanced functionality for factory production, data acquisition, environment monitoring, and facility monitoring applications.

The APAX-5013 is designed for temperature data acquisition featuring high accuracy to identify temperature information and wire burn-out detection through highest- and lowest-default parameter settings, which can take action in the event the RTD sensor fails. The APAX-5017H has 12-channel high density I/O points, featuring sampling rates of 1,000 samples a second per channel. The input type of each channel is configurable by different range of voltage and current respectively, including 0-500 mV, ±10 V, 0-10 V, 0-20 mA, and 4-20 mA. Both the APAX-5013 and APAX-5017H support hot swap capability to reduce downtime and maintain costs.
