ADAM-6000 Ethernet I/O modules

The ADAM-6000 Ethernet I/O modules have a new firmware enhancement that adds advanced Peer-to-Peer (P2P) and Graphic Condition Logic (GCL) functionality. With P2P functionality, the distributed Ethernet I/O modules can actively update input channel status to specific output channels. In the past, a controller was needed to read data from the Ethernet input modules to Ethernet output modules. Now, the data will transfer automatically with no extra controller or programming needed. It can Also minimize the system response time.

GCL is a Windows-based software utility that adds control logic between input and output without extensive programming. GCL can easily create equivalent instructions to simple ladder logic instructions on PLCs. It also supports flexible cascade function locally or over the Ethernet network.

These modules provide a variety of I/O options, simple PC ladder logic, logic cascade and feedback function, online monitoring of running status, the ability to connect to SCADA/HMI software, a built-in web server and an extremely fast response time.
