ADAM-6100EI is a series of EtherNet/IP remote I/O modules. EtherNet/IP protocol is very popular in industrial automation applications and all ADAM-6100EI series modules can comply with it. You can easily connect ADAM-6100EI modules to EtherNet/ IP masters, like Allen-Bradley PLC, through EtherNet/IP protocol. ADAM-6100EI series module supports Initial mode and Normal mode (EtherNet/IP mode), that you can set by the DIP switch on the side of ADAM module. Refer to Section 1.3.3 for how to configure it. When you configure the mode as Initial mode, you can configure ADAM-6100EI module’s IP address and related setting by Advantech APAX/ ADAM.Net utility. When you configure the mode as Normal mode, ADAM-6100EI modules are ready to communicate with EtherNet/IP master by EtherNet/IP protocol.
