Advantech Introduces ADAM-6024, a Compact I/O Module with Ethernet Connectivity
A compact I/O combination solutionCincinnati, Ohio (March 2, 2004)- Advantechs ADAM-6024 replaces expensive multiple I/O module installations with a new, compact module featuring several I/O interfaces and Ethernet connectivity. In most equipment monitoring and control applications, both analog inputs/outputs and digital inputs/outputs need to be used, even though they only serve one unit. No matter how simple the installation, several different I/O modules are often required to provide a combination of I/O interfaces. Advantechs ADAM-6024 provides an affordable solution.The ADAM-6024 is a mixed I/O in a single module with an optimized I/O portfolio including: two analog outputs, six analog inputs, two digital inputs and two digital outputs. According to Advantech's research, this is suitable for 80% of single unit applications. Replacing a combination of digital I/O modules and analog I/O modules with the compact ADAM-6024 not only saves space and installation time, but also reduces module cost.The ADAM-6024 also provides users an Ethernet I/O data processing center. This new product is not only a standard I/O, but also an intelligent system designed with local control functions and a Modbus/TCP standard for users to easily develop various applications over the Ethernet.Additionally, the ADAM-6024 features an embedded web server and pre-built web page to display real-time I/O data values, alarm and module status thru LAN or Internet. Using an Internet browser, users can easily monitor real-time I/O data values and alarm anywhere, anytime. Moreover, users can design their own web page to replace the preinstalled web page.The ADAM-6024 is in production right now, and will be available for sale in a few weeks.
