Spectrum Controls Releases Two New 8-Channel Analog I/O Modules with HART Protocol for ControlLogix
Obtain analog and HART data to create a smart network and optimize asset management

Bellevue, Washington—Spectrum Controls, Inc., a leading manufacturer of hardware and software for the industrial controls marketplace, is pleased to announce release of two new analog I/O modules with HART Protocol, specifically designed for Allen-Bradley ControlLogix PLCs.

These new modules provide full analog capability and the added benefit of HART (highway addressable remote transducer) Protocol in just one I/O module. The Analog+HART I/O Modules maximize I/O performance by combining real-time HART data acquisition in conjunction with standard analog acquisition and control—at a fraction of the cost.

Each module also acts as a HART master, allowing communication with HART field devices. Field devices may be interfaced directly to the module; eliminating the expense of additional external HART bridge devices or hand-held communicators. When used in conjunction with an asset management system (AMS), the Analog+HART I/IO Modules provide configuration, calibration, ranging, diagnosis and troubleshooting of smart field devices from a desktop PC. This ability can increase product quality and minimize unplanned downtime, while improving the productivity and profitability of the process.

Spectrum Controls’ Analog+HART I/O Modules reduce wiring and simplify maintenance. Setup is convenient and easy with support from programming software. The result is maximum data access with a low total cost-of-ownership.
