Sensor to computer or PLC interface for remote data acq & control

ADAM-4000 modules are compact, intelligent sensor-to- computer or PLC interface devices with built-in microprocessors which provide signal conditioning, analog I/O, digital I/O and comms all in an industrial hardened package. Can make stand alone, on/off controllers.
Warranty period: 2 years
.

ADAM modules stand out because of their ability to accommodate multiple types and ranges of analog input. You select the type and range remotely by issuing commands from the host computer.
You may use just one type of unit for many different tasks, greatly simplifying design and maintenance.

They translate analog data into one of the following formats: engineering units, % of FSR, two’s complement or ohms. After the modules receive a request from the host, they send the data in the desired format over the RS-485 network.

The RS485 network can connect to a host computer using an …

RS232 port with ADAM-4520   RS232 to RS485 Converter, or      (these links jump further down this page)
USB port using the ADAM-4561 USB to RS485 Converter, or                       ditto

Speed of ADAM-4000 Series System

For acquiring one data reading from an ADAM module, the host sends a string command to
the module and waits for the module response, then the response string back to the PC via communication line.

So the total time is depended on how long is the command string and the response string,
and how fast is the baud rate.
For example, if you use 115200 bps baud rate, it will take (1/115200)*10 seconds to send one character
(total 10 bits including start bit, 8 data bits and stop bit).

The total communication time to read one slot DI data from ADAM-5051 will be:

((character number)/11520+0.002) seconds

where (character number) is the total characters for command and response
and 0.002 is the wait time of ADAM-5051.

With the communication time to read 1-slot data, you can derive the maximum sampling speed in your application.
The sampling speed of A/D modules can be calculated in the same way.

ADAM modules with multiple channels support the read all channel command,
you can take use of it to save the acquiring time.

An ADAM system running with the GeniDAQ software, the minimum scan period is 10 ms.

Analog Input & Output Modules

Analog Input Modules

  • 16-bit Integrating A/D converter with self calibration
  • 3000VDC analog input isolation – Digital filter
  • Output data formats: engineering units,  % of FSR,  twos complement, or ohms. Data is sent in desired format when req. by host
  • Some analog modules contain two digital outputs and one digital input channel. They can drive solid state relays which in turn can control equipment.

Programmable Alarm Output
Analog input modules include high and low alarm signalling. After every A/D conversion, the digital value is compared with the high and low limit. The module can change the state of a digital output depending on the result of this comparison. This lets it perform On/Off control of a device independent of the host PC.

Event Counter On-board event counter can count to 65,535 transitions on the digital input.
The counter is read and cleared by the host. Max sample rate: 50Hz.

Accessories Included
Nylon DIN-rail mounting adaptor; SECC Panel mounting bracket. Plug-in screw terminals.

Note:
ADAM-4018M has been phased out

  • A Windows PC is generally required to configure the modules initially, using the software supplied with the module.
  • Adam modules can be controlled using simple ASCII commands over the serial link.
  • An ADAM-4520 RS-232 to RS-422/485 converter may be needed, unless your PC has an RS-422/485 port.
  • Once this initial configuration has been done, the module stores the configuration in its internal non-volatile memory.
  • You can then connect any serial device to it and use the simple ASCII commands to read data.

Fibre Optic

Fiber optics are the perfect solution for applications where the transmission medium must be protected from electrical exposure, lighting, atmospheric conditions or chemical corrosion.

Single Mode: A fiber with a small core, only a few times the wavelength of light transmitted, that only allows one mode of light to propagate. Commonly used with laser sources for high speed, long distance links.

Multimode: A fiber with core diameter much larger than the wavelength of light transmitted that allows many modes of light to propagate. Commonly used with LED sources for lower speed, short distance links.

Included with ADAM modules.
This driver lets you control ADAM modules from any programming language that works with DLLs, including Visual Basic, Microsoft C++, Turbo C++ and Turbo Pascal. The driver package includes a VBX custom control for Visual basic and an easy to use Windows setup program with terminal emulation.

The driver works with COM ports 1 to 4. It supports all ADAM functions except for the ADAM-4080D’s counter (Counter/Frequency module).

Programming Example (BASIC)

If the command”#05″ is sent to a network of ADAM modules, the module whose address is 05H will respond with a reading, for example: “+4.834”.

OPEN “COM1: 9600, N, 8, 1,RS ,CS ,CD ,DS” AS #1

CMD$ = “%2333324100600″

PRINT #1, CMD$
‘ADAM-4011 is now configured to address 24H, T-type thermocouple input, 9600bps, eng. unit data format’

CMD$=”#24”

PRINT #1, CMD$       ‘Read analog input data’

RESULT$ = INPUT$(5,#1)

PRINT “Temperature = “,RESULT$
