(Cincinnati, Ohio - 11/17/2005) - The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech introduces the ADAM-6000W series wireless Ethernet digital I/O modules equipped with an embedded JAVA web page for remote status and control.

The ADAM-6050W, ADAM-6051W, and ADAM-6060W meet many diverse applications as they are equipped with numerous features and functions known as Smart I/O. The inputs can be configured to read a frequency signal, act as a counter, latching input or normal input. The outputs can be configured as pulse outputs, delayed outputs, and standard output. The output modules have a built-in communications watchdog which allows each output channel to be set to a known state if communication is lost. The user friendly interface allows for simple changes to the embedded JAVA web page without requiring JAVA programming knowledge. The units allow eight simultaneous web clients for viewing I/O status and control, if needed.

The ADAM-6000W series I/O modules use a wireless Ethernet standard IEEE802.11b as it is the most popular wireless network. They support Modbus/TCP and UDP protocols. These units handle industrial power and can be din-rail or panel mounted. The I/O design is suitable for applications such as building automation, environmental monitoring, production monitoring, and facility management.
