Measurement/control applications more easily established with help of new software

23 August 2006 Test & Measurement

Advantech's popular ADAM range of products allows engineers to easily do field measurements, and ADAM support is also included in various SCADA packages. This is according to local distributor Centurion Micro Electronics, who adds that, if an engineer would like to use ADAM in a custom written package however, he/she would need to implement the ADAM ASCII protocol in software and purchase an OCX control. This is now simplified, with the release of the ADAM.NET library.

Advantech's recently-released ADAM.NET Class Library helps engineers easily program with the Microsoft Virtual Studio.NET development software. According to Centurion Micro Electronics, it offers a powerful tool for WIN CE.NET that allows users to easily implement the ADAM serial I/O into their applications under the WIN CE.NET platform. The ADAM.NET Class Library supports Win32, WinCE, and Pocket PC, and also provides VB.NET and C# class objects to help users configure and control ADAM I/O series products.

Because Microsoft Virtual Studio.NET development software no longer supports the MSCOM function, it is more difficult for engineers to program applications with ADAM I/O modules. To assist engineers, the ADAM.NET Class Library now also supports the commands of MODBUS/TCP and UDP Search to integrate with third party devices.

To shorten the programming development time, Centurion Micro Electronics also offers graphic indicators, lights, knobs, meters, numbered LEDs, switches, and trends in the utility. Engineers can simply drag and drop these graphics to develop applications with a few clicks. The company offers exhaustive examples for procedure commands and source codes in the package, and customers can consult the relevant examples to quickly develop procedures.
