APAX-5080 overview

  • Supports multiple operating modes: Up, Up/Down, Pulse/Direction, A/B Phase and Frequency
  • Four or eight counter channels depending on operating mode
  • 32-bit counter range with 1-bit overflow/underflow
  • 1MHz counter frequency
  • Four digital input channels with counter fate functionality
  • Four digital output channels with counter alarm output functionality
  • Over voltage, short circuit and thermal protection design
  • 2500V DC isolation protection between channels and backplane
  • CE and FCC Class A certification
Advantech’s APAX-5080 counter module features up to eight counter channels and hot-swappable functionality. With its 4/8 counter channels, 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 DI counter gates to define when a counter is enabled, and four DO alarm output channels triggered by a specific counter value; so that the APAX-5080 can be configured to send an alarm message when certain criteria are met.

The APAX-5080 is part of the APAX-5000 Programmable Automation Controller series from Advantech. Impulse can supply you the APAX-5080, along with a range of communication, expansion and I/O modules to meet your automation application requirements.
