ADVANTECH has released the ADAM-4019+, an eight-channel universal analogue input module. It has a 4mA-20mA input range and a burnout detection function for detecting sensor failure.
It can mix input ranges, supporting individual configuration for each channel, saving costs and space where multiple inputs are required. Its input range is suitable for analogue and current control devices in industrial automation applications. Other input ranges including ±10V, mV, and thermocouple are all integrated into theADAM-4019+.
Depending on the application it can be set up to communicate using either the standard ADAM ASCII commands or Modbus/RTU.
