Counter Module

July 12, 2011
The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech introduces the APAX-5080 counter module that features up to eight channels and hot-swappable functionality.

With its 4/8 counter channel's, the APAX-5080 is capable of simultaneously taking counts from multiple sources using any of its five operating modes (UP, UP/Down, Frequency, Pulse/Direction, and A/B Phase modes), therefore saving hardware installation costs and having greater scalability.

The flexibility of the APAX-5080 is enhanced with the additional benefit of four digital input counter gates to define when a counter is enabled and four digital output alarm channels triggered by a specific counter value so, it can be configured to send an alarm message when certain criteria are met.

To reduce the risk of downtime in critical operations, the APAX-5080 module is designed to be hot swappable, therefore enabling factory and business premises to be up and running almost instantly.

It's easily configured using Microsoft Windows CE, Linux and SoftLogic and is the ideal counter module for use in automated systems.
