Advantech Announces ADAM-6520 Industrial Ethernet Switch Upgraded With ESD Protection
The ADAM-6520-A has been upgraded and is now released as ADAM-6520-B. To meet customer demands for higher reliability, the new ADAM-6520-B supports 4,000 Volt ESD protection and a solid screw terminal design that ensures power lines are fully secured

Cincinnati, Ohio (March 8, 2004)- Advantech Corporation, Industrial Automation Group presents the ADAM-6520-B, an upgrade from the ADAM-6520-A, a 5-port, industrial-grade Ethernet switch. The main improvement lies in its ESD protection.

Unpredictable static electricity is common in industrial environments, and without ESD protection built-in, Ethernet network break down is possible. The upgraded ADAM-6520-B provides maximum network stability for applications in harsh environments.

Solid Screw Terminals
Another upgrade is the solid screw terminal design. Industrial-grade switches are a critical component to any system that relies on an Ethernet network. Using a normal clamp connector for the switch power lines is not recommended, since the wires could get tangled in moving mechanical parts, or on the foot of an unfortunate system operator. This design upgrade guarantees that power lines are firmly fixed to the ADAM-6520-B.

The Industrial Grade for Demanding Requirements
The ADAM-6520-B supports a voltage range of 10 to 30 VDC and an operating temperature range of -10 to 70°C. Additionally, the compact design of the ADAM® family saves space, and has flexible mounting options like wall, panel, piggyback, cabinets and of course, DIN rails.

With ESD protection and solid-screw terminals, the ADAM-6520-B delivers reliable performance for users who demand network dependability to handle today's most advanced applications, such as assembly lines, semiconductor factories, warehouses, and automated factories.
