Advantech ADAM-4100 Robust Remote I/O Modules

Advantech ADAM-4100 I/O modules are compact and versatile sensor-to-computer interface units. They are designed for reliable operation in harsh environments and can operate normally in wide temperatures from -40°C to +85°C, with wide power input and resistance against noise-interference.
