Data acquisition module for smart industrial IoT
IAR Systems has announced that its development tools have enabled Advantech to successfully develop their latest remote I/O data acquisition module, ADAM-6300. ADAM-6300 is able to serve as an intelligent network node in an IoT application, to meet the needs of environmental monitoring, make application configurations easier and faster and assist companies in their digital transformation.
The rapid development of IIoT has led to a substantial growth in the demand for smart edge devices. Advantech's ADAM-6300 is an OPC UA remote I/O data acquisition module that does not require an external gateway, and can be directly connected to SCADA, database or public cloud services. It supports OPC UA (Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture) function and includes built-in hardware security protection. ADAM-6300 is highly recommended for applications such as water treatment, machine management, and production process monitoring.
"Advantech has been working with IAR Systems tools for more than 16 years, because of its extensive support for MCUs, stable products and the fact that it meets Advantech’s requirements for development of industrial products,” said Adam Lin, Senior R&D Manager Industrial Internet of Things Business Group, Advantech. “ADAM-6300 can be seen as a representative work of Advantech brand and as an industry pioneering work, since it was implemented the way that it originally would need to run on a PC rather than on an embedded platform. And this could only have been developed and realised through the use of IAR Embedded Workbench.”
Chris Lin, Sales Manager Taiwan, IAR Systems, added: "The industrial-grade products developed by Advantech have very high requirements for stability, and it is a great match with IAR Embedded Workbench to provide stable product quality and service. We are honored to have Advantech using our tools to realise the integration of IoT edge devices. With new smart monitoring function, we look forward to continue assisting Advantech in their innovations for industrial IoT applications."
IAR Embedded Workbench is a complete development toolchain with powerful code optimisations capabilities, which enables developers to generate small, fast code, improving the execution performance as well as reducing power consumption. Combined with its extensive debugging features, developers are to make their product development more efficient.
