A complete CODESYS experience?

08 September 2015

Advantech’s new ADAM-5560CDS, is said to offer a cost efficient modular IPC controller based on CODESYS V3 embedded engineering platform equipped with an Intel Atom D510 CPU including controller specific features such as a watch dog, RAM with battery back-up and pre-installed with the real time embedded OS WIN CE6.0.

The basic unit provides space for seven internal I/O slots which can support applications up to 224 I/O points. 

Two on board Ethernet ports allow for connectivity to multiple network architectures and remote I/O components. For additional external and long distance I/O expansion, the company can offer a selection of remote I/O extension units. The ADAM-5000TCP and ADAM-5000/485 can be connected through the Modbus TCP Ethernet Remote I/O LAN port or Internal RS 485 Modbus/RTU port. Both remote I/O extension units provide additional space for further four or eight I/O modules. 

At the core of the PC based controller is the CODESYS V3 Runtime System CODESYS Control and Visualization, the automation market standard for the development of IEC-61131-3 compliant applications. The free of charge development system includes all the components for engineering, all 6 IEC-61131- languages, and compiler for the native machine code, a powerful debugger and a clear project configurator. 

Besides the soft logic programming capability of the CODESYS engineering tool, an integrated graphical editor allows the system integrator to develop the target visualisation, which can be displayed through an additional industrial panel monitor connected to the internal VGA port of the ADAM-5560.  

The web-based visualisation option of the CODESYS Visualization enables remote access, monitoring and HMI services over the internet. A standard web-browser communicates with the web server in the controller and displays the visualisation by means of HTML5.
