ADAM-6100PN is a series of PROFINET remote I/O modules. PROFINET protocol is very popular in industrial automation applications and all ADAM-6100PN series modules can comply with it. You can easily connect ADAM-6100PN modules to PROFINET masters, like Siemens PLC, through PROFINET protocol. ADAM-6100PN series module supports Initial mode and Normal mode (PROFINET mode), that you can set by the DIP switch on the side of ADAM module. When you configure the mode as Initial mode, you can configure ADAM-6100PN module’s IP address and related setting by Advantech APAX/ ADAM.Net utility. When you configure the mode as Normal mode, ADAM-6100PN modules are ready to communicate with PROFINET master by PROFINET protocol.
