May 4, 2018 – Advantech has announced its USB-5800 series of isolated digital I/O modules for industrial control applications that require easy-to-install portable digital I/O capabilities, particularly for systems without PCI/PCIe slots, it says.
Featuring SuperSpeed USB 3.0 capabilities, USB-5800 series I/O modules provide data transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps, extend the system I/O functions, and support daisy chaining for easy I/O expansion, Advantech explains. The front-facing LED indicators, ID switch, and terminal blocks provide users access for installation and maintenance. In an effort to protect against sudden failures or disconnection, the USB-5800 series modules also feature exclusive Auto Recovery technology, which the company says ensures zero failures. The USB-5800 modules support various development tools, including C#, C++, LabVIEW, VB.Net, MFC, BCB, VB6, Java, Delphi, and Qt, and are compatible with Windows XP/7/8/10 and Linux operating systems.
