The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech introduces two new I/O modules, an 8-channel resistive thermal device (RTD) module (APAX-5013) and a 12-channel high speed analog input module (APAX-5017H). These new modules are designed fo for factory production, data acquisition, environment monitoring and facility monitoring applications.
The APAX-5013 is designed for temperature data acquisition to identify temperature information and wire burn-out detection through highest and lowest default parameter settings, which can take action in the event the RTD sensor fails.
The APAX-5017H has 12-channel high density I/O points, featuring 1,000 samples a second per channel. The input type of each channel is configurable by different range of voltage and current respectively, including 0~500mV, +-10 V, 0~10V, 0~20mA, 4~20mA.
Both the APAX-5013 and APAX-5017H support hot swap capability to reduce downtime and maintain costs.
