EC: ADAM-3600 Intelligent Remote Terminal Unit
Network Integration — I/O systems: The ADAM-3600 Intelligent Remote Terminal Unit features multiple wireless function capability, multiple I/O selection, wide temperature range and supports flexible communication protocols. This is a Control Engineering 2017 Engineers’ Choice Awards Finalist.
The ADAM-3600 Intelligent RTU utilizes Advantech’s TagLink technology, a modular wireless expansion system.
TagLink is a new embedded technology which allows engineers to assign real meaning to the data they manage and makes it easier to maintain. It frees users from the hard work of processing the raw data and provides a unified interface for different protocol servers which enable engineers to use C programming, Softlogic, WebAccess, SCADA, or RESTful/HTML to communicate directly with third-party devices. It also supports data interlock to prevent conflicting access from different applications. These features ensure that the data from the ADAM-3600 can be accessed from the IoT cloud.
The ADAM-3600 with two Ethernet ports and three serial ports (one RS-485/422 and two RS-485) has been designed with modularity and space saving in mind. It doesn’t require extra space to add additional I/O, wireless, GPRS devices within small cabinets. This modular approach enables engineers to quickly and easily change the functionality of the ADAM-3600 without the need to buy expensive whole units or be concerned about space issues.
The ADAM-3600 has several features to help it withstand the rigors of the weather. It has been designed with industrial grade components and has a wide temperature range between -40 to 70 C as well as meets the requirements of Class I, Division 2 UL certification.
The ADAM-3600 is ideal for any remote inhospitable regions where many devices need to be managed remotely.
