Advantech APAX Series

APAX ModulesThe Fieldbus concept will change the control environment and device characteristics of future control systems in both processing and manufacturing. Compared with traditional systems, the Fieldbus system reduces cost of cabling, commissioning, and installation.
In addition, the Fieldbus system has greater reliability.
The ADAM-5000 series, a compact distributed data acquisition and control system, supports the shift toward Fieldbus-based systems.
Based on popular Fieldbus data communication structures such as RS-485 and Modbus, the ADAM-5000 series now offers two different DA&C systems that allow field I/O devices to easily connect to PC network applications: the ADAM5000 DA&C systems and the ADAM-5510 series of
PC-based controllers.

Advantech's APAX-5000 series provides an open development architecture and integrates control, information processing, and networking in a single control system.

APAX-5000 series features dual controllers for different tasks, making it superior to other PAC products in the market.
APAX-5000 series versatility, flexibility and scalability can fully satisfy complicated automation industry needs.
The APAX-5000 I/O modules have many attractive features to reduce the effort of the engineers, such as
hot swap capability,
high density,
clamp type terminal blocks,
ID switches,
LEDs,
writable labels with wiring information, and a flexible expansion topology.

The members of the APAX-5000 series include controllers, I/O modules, backplanes and power supply modules.

APAX-5000 series can be applied in the batch process production environments like food & beverage, pharmacy, machinery control and critical environmental systems.

The APAX-5000 PAC series (Programmable Automation Controller) from Advantech inherits all advantages of PAC architectures while integrating control, information processing and networking in a single platform.

ADAM-5000 Fieldbus

Fieldbus has many benefits and cost reductions in cabling, commissioning, installation and reliability.
ADAM-5000 Series modules can operate between -10°C and +70°C,
with an unregulated power supply between 10 and 30VDC.         Warranty period: 2 years.

Fieldbus comms protocols

RS485 or CAN (Controller Area Network).

ADAM-5000 series can control, monitor & acquire data through the multi-channel I/O modules which plug onto the ADAM-5000.
The systems provide intelligent signal conditioning, analog I/O, digital I/O and communication.
Each system can handle any combination of I/O modules.
Systems communicate with their controlling host over a single twisted pair of wires in the multidrop fieldbus network.

The base units are the ADAM-5000 & ADAM-5000E
which house a CPU, power regulator, two comms ports,
and four, or eight slots, which take various multi-channel I/O plug-in modules.

Many ADAM-5000s can be easily networked together in a system.

Data transfer rate is similar to the ADAM-4000 series modules, i.e. 10 channels per second accross the network, regardless of how many channels there are.

Setup/Utility Software
Easy-to-use menu-driven utility software, including a terminal emulation program, makes configuration and calibration easy.
It also lets you easily read from and write to the ADAM-5000 system.
Writing application programs with this software is simple, and you can learn the basics in just a few minutes.

Supported by Major HMI Software Package ADAM DLL Driver
The ADAM API Dynamic Link Library (DLL) driver lets you control ADAM modules from your Windows application programs.
The DLL driver can use PC COM ports COM1 or COM2.
This library supports C/C++ and Visual BASIC.
Drivers support analog I/O, and digital I/O, as well as counter and temperature measurement.
For easy setup and troubleshooting the package also includes Windows programs for data display, module setup and terminal emulation.

ADAM-5500 Series

ADAM-5550KWAdvantech, a global leader in Industrial Computing, has won another 'Taiwan Excellence' award, this time for their new generation PAC controller - the ADAM-5550KW. Selected out of 487 pieces of work, the judges, composed of the officials from the Bureau of Foreign Trade under the Ministry of Economic Affairs, emphasizing its resource integration, bestowed upon the PAC controller an award that is a symbol of its innovation.

PAC's are powerful and versatile controllers combining a PLC's ruggedness with a PC's functionality under a flexible, open architecture. The robust ADAM-5550KW allows users to build complex systems with advanced control, communication, data logging, and signal processing capabilities. ADAM-5550KW is designed for users who need a high performance and cost-effective solution for complex control applications.

Multi-domain Functionality
The extremely versatile ADAM-5550KW can serve multiple domains and is able to handle complex control requirements, high speed analog measurement, multiple programs with different cycle times, open communication functions, and enterprise-level network integration. Furthermore, the ADAM-5550KW has been specifically designed to handle distributed motion control functions with PLCopen-compliant motion control function blocks.

Powerful Hardware & Software Compatibilities
Advantech's ADAM-5550KW PAC provides a suite of useful I/O capabilities (including a local VGA port for convenient HMI functionality) which allows a high level of deployment options. Coupled with its comprehensive software support, including DiagAnywhere Remote Maintenance Software, MULTIPROG, ProConOS, and Windows CE 5.0, the ADAM-5500KW can be easily implemented as a single programming tool across multiple applications.

Open Architecture & Versatile Connectivity
The use of Ethernet TCP/IP, Internet and IT standards (SQL, OPC, Web Server, FTP Server, and email alarm functions), maximizes data integration throughout an enterprise. In a collaborative manufacturing environment, the multi-functional capabilities of ADAM-5550KW enable easy access and exchange of production process information, and connect factory-floor operations to enterprise-level systems. Moreover, ADAM-5540KW complies with many PLC certifications including IEC 61000-6-2(EMS), IEC 61000-6-4(EMI), IEC 60068-2-6(Vibration) and IEC 60068-2-27(Shock).
