The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech (Cincinnati, OH) has unveiled two new ADAM analog input modules, the ADAM-5017P and ADAM-5018P. The ADAM-5017P has eight different independent configuration channels, supports power reverse, and has a wide unipolar or bipolar input range. The ADAM-5018P is a Thermocouple Input Module which supports seven input ranges and types (J,K,T,E,R,S,B), and will filter functions to remove any unreasonable range.

Both will support the high common-mode function, which means channel-to-channel differential voltages can be up to 200 VDC. They are also protected from overvoltage, transients, and electrostatic discharge. Both expansion modules are supported by the ADAM.Net Utility.
