Advantech Fieldbus and I/O Selection Guide
ADAM Remote I/O Module
Advantech is a leading provider of remote automation I/O solutions. In 1993, Advantech released its first remote I/O module, RS-485, which has since been widely adopted in various industries. To date, Advantech has sold over 1 million units worldwide.
• ADAM-4000 series — Modbus/RTU remote I/O
• ADAM-4100 series — Robust Modbus/RTU remote I/O
• ADAM-6000 series — Modbus/TCP single LAN remote I/O
• ADAM-6200 series — Modbus/TCP dual LAN remote I/O
• ADAM-5000 rack remote I/O — Modbus rack remote I/O system
• ADAM-6100PN — PROFINET remote I/O, easily integrated with Siemens PLC
• ADAM-6100EI — Ethernet/IP remote I/O, easily integrated with AB PLC
APAX High-Density I/O Module
Advantech has developed a high-density, high-flexibility, real-time I/O solution — the APAX high-density I/O module. With its unique backplane design, the APAX high-density I/O module is compatible with centralized or distributed systems. On a single I/O bus, the APAX high-density I/O module can support a daisy chain, star, or tree topology without a coupler. However, if equipped with a real-time fieldbus coupler, the APAX high-density I/O module can be seamlessly integrated into mainstream PLC systems.
• Supports a full range of I/O modes including AI, T/C, RTD, DI, DO, Relay, and Counter
APAX Fieldbus Coupler
• Modbus APAX-5070
• PROFINET APAX-5071
• Ethernet/IP APAX-5072
mPCIe Expansion Kit
Advantech’s New iDoor technology is a brand-new design concept which utilizes the mini PCIe format. By using standardized mini PCIE iDoor modules and interfaces, iDoor Technology gives customers the flexibility to configure the various I/O requirements based on different applications. iDoor modules include: Fieldbus protocol; digital, analog and expansion I/O; smart sensor, communication and memory. The highly flexible customization and easy component replacement gives system integrators the flexible solutions for their own projects to meet different customer needs.
EtherCAT I/O Module
The AMAX-4800 series comprises industrial EtherCAT slave modules that support the EtherCAT protocol. The compact module size and integrated DIN rail mounting kit ensure easy installation in control cabinets. Meanwhile, euro-type pluggable terminal blocks and LED indicators facilitate system setup and maintenance. All modules are protected by an isolation circuit, making them ideal for demanding industrial applications.
