Courtesy: AdvantechAdvantech’s ADAM-6200 Series of Ethernet-based remote I/O modules provide distributed control capabilities with peer-to-peer communication and Graphic Condition Logic (GCL) programmability for true programmable control within the module or between modules. The peer-to-peer communication is enhanced with a switch and two RJ-45 10/100 Ethernet ports in each module supporting daisy chain connectivity. The internal switch has a physical auto-bypass feature which ensures continuity of the network should the module fail. The ADAM-6200 series has added features that include hosting an enhanced web page using HTML5, which can be modified and is programmable using Java, JavaScript, and REST. Group configuration has also been added for performing fast mass updates of the modules.

The HTML5 based web page adds new flexibility to visualization of the status of the I/O of individual modules, supporting computer web browsers as well as smart phones and tablets. Modules can be monitored and controlled from a variety of platforms allowing access through password protected web pages with enhanced graphics displaying digital I/O status as well as analog input by value or in line graph charts.
