Advantech is a global leader in data acquisition I/O module design and manufacturing, offering complete stand-alone data acquisition modules which are broadly used in industrial applications such as facility monitoring, industrial process control and environmental monitoring.
Advantech remote I/O modules are categorised into two families, Ethernet I/O (ADAM-6000 series) and RS-485 I/O (ADAM-4000 series), further subdivided into Analog I/O and Digital I/O modules some of which support the industry-leading Modbus communication protocol.
The ADAM Remote I/O module series has been a consistent and reliable figure in the industrial automation field for almost 20 years. Whether you are implementing large or small automation systems, Advantech’s ADAM Remote I/O modules offer the cornerstone for your e-automation requirements.
The ADAM-4000 Remote I/O series
ADAM-4000 modules are the perfect choice for establishing a cost-effective remote I/O system. Customers can benefit from ADAM-4000 modules through its simple wiring - using only two wires to communicate with their controller or other RS-485 devices. ADAM-4000 modules use the EIA RS-485 communication protocol; the industry's most widely used bi-directional, balanced transmission line suitable for industrial environments.
The robust ADAM-4100 series is designed for reliable operation in harsh environments and feature a wider -40C to +85C operating temperature range, higher noise immunity with isolated input/output and a broader 10V to 48V DC power input range.

In the past, integrating automation and enterprise systems required changing the entire architecture of the control system. The Advantech ADAM-6000 series accomplishes this integration easily using the latest internet technology to remotely monitor device status’ more flexibly.
Industrial Ethernet is fast becoming the de facto standard in industrial networks as its open network architecture provides seamless integration between layers. This makes the ADAM-6000 series an easy choice for your automation control system as they provide the most popular and open communication interfaces available.
