Advantech’s ADAM-6100 series is a new line of Industrial Ethernet Remote I/O modules, six of which use the EtherNet/IP protocol and six use PROFINET. This series includes the ADAM-6117, an 8-ch Isolated Analog Input Module, the ADAM-6118, an 8-ch Thermocouple Input Module, the ADAM-6150, a 15-ch Isolated Digital Input/Output Module, the ADAM-6151, a 16-ch Isolated Digital Input Module, the ADAM-6156, a 16-ch Isolated Digital Output Module, and the ADAM-6160, a 6-ch Relay Output Module.

The followings are some of the innovative highlights of the ADAM-6100 series.

1. Daisy Chain Connections
Each ADAM-6100 module has two built in Ethernet switches to allow daisy chain connections in an Ethernet network, making it easier to deploy, helping improve scalability and improving resistance against interference common in factory settings.

2. Ethernet-based Configuration Tool
The ADAM.NET Utility comes bundled with each ADAM-6100 module. With the ADAM.NET Utility, users can configure, set and test ADAM-6100 modules through Ethernet connections.

3. 2,500 VDC Isolation Protection
With triple isolation, including power supply, input/output, and Ethernet communication, the ADAM-6100 series ensures I/O data to be controlled correctly, and prevents devices from breaking down.

4. Multiple Mounting Mechanisms
For simple installation, modification, and maintenance, Advantech provides versatile mounting methods to meet the demands of the field. The ADAM-6100 series supports DIN-rail mounting, wall mounting and piggybacking.

To conclude, real-time distributed control systems are an important technology for reliable industrial automation applications. A real-time system, on the other hand, is expected to respond not just quickly, but also within a specific period of time. By adapting Advantech’s ADAM-6100 real-time Ethernet I/O modules, customers can ensure stable operation, and therefore improve the performance of communications between industrial controllers.
