Advantech is releasing its latest ADAM-2000Z series wireless I/O modules, building on the company's Internet of Things (IoT) strategy. The ADAM-2000Z modules utilise IEEE 802.15.4 standard I/O and the latest sensor technologies while supporting 2.4GHz mesh networking to provide the flexibility for building cost-effective distributed monitoring systems.
The wireless ADAM-2000Z series includes six modules, including a Modbus/RTU gateway, router node, and the I/O and sensor devices listed below. Advantech says the ADAM-2000Z series features low power consumption, ensured data integrity, Modbus/RTU protocol support, a high degree of accuracy of 16 bits for the AI module, and a wireless site survey tool in the ADAM Utility. Low power consumption enables the modules to update at one-minute intervals for a year from just a pair of AA alkaline batteries.
In addition, the ADAM-2000Z series supports the Modbus/RTU protocol so that modules can be connected to other Modbus modules without any additional software or cost. The control of the ADAM-2000Z Series can be easily integrated into most HMI and SCADA devices using the Modbus/RTU protocol. Configuring a reliable wireless network, site survey is an important task; the ADAM-utility includes the site survey tool, Topology, for users to get a module's status and wireless communication quality. For the network capacity, the ADAM-2000Z series can connect up to 32 nodes, including router and end devices.
The wireless ADAM-2000Z series comprises:
- ADAM-2510Z Wireless Router Node
- ADAM-2520Z Wireless Modbus RTU Gateway
- ADAM-2031Z Wireless Temperature and Humidity Sensor Node
- ADAM-2017Z Wireless six-channel Analogue Input Node (coming soon)
- ADAM-2051Z Wireless eight-channel Digital Input Node
- ADAM-2051PZ Wireless eight-channel Digital Input Node with Power Amplifier
