ABACUS4 Process I/O systems
The plant connection to ABACUS 4 may be achieved using a variety
of hardware including the rack mounted PI-Bus system from Bristol Babcock,
ABACUS can serve as a Modbus master via standard serial ports (with suitable
external conversion to RS485). This allows connection to a vast range of
ADAM 4000 series /
ICP DAS 7000
The ICP 7000 series and ADAM 4000 series both use the same RS485 based protocol.
This means that ABACUS4 is able to act as a master to either.
These economic and versertile modules may be distributed as far as the RS485
network will reach.
Remote I/O Module (ADAM-4000)
In order to provide the best Remote DA&C system solution to fully fit the
request from industrial users, ADAM-4000 series has been improved with two
design concepts: Industrial standard and Intelligent functions.
I-7000 provide cost-effective protection and conditioning for a wide range of
valuable industrial control signals and system. This product line includes
sensor-to-computer, computer-to-sensor, digital I/O, timer/ counter,
RS-232-to-RS-485 converter and RS-485 repeater The command set of I-7000
modules is backward compatible to ADAM, Nudam, and 6B of Analog Device.
BSAP based process controllers (BBL 3330, ControlWave etc.)
A wide variety of BSAP based controllers has been produced over the last
20 years or more. They communicate with each other via an RS485 serial
network with speeds up to 1Mb. (Intel hardware cannot reach this speed
DAS08, DAS16 EISA bus cards
Primarily designed for lab use, these cards are available in a wide variety
of configurations, from several different manufacturers
These cards are mounted internally, and give the fastest response, but
require external isolation, and conversion for 4-20 mA etc.
Rack mounted PI-Bus system from Bristol Babcock
This extremely robust process I/O system was designed for the nuclear power
industry where quality and long life were prerequisites.
