Advantech Marks One Million Milestone, Shows Partner Appreciation
By David Sims, TMCnet Contributing Editor
Advantech, a provider of embedded and automation products and network processor solutions, is celebrating the milestone of reaching one million ADAM Remote I/O modules sold globally, according to a recent post on industry journal Design World. Advantech (News - Alert) celebrated this occasion with special events, promotions, and an award presentation to one of their largest distributors in North America, B&B Electronics Manufacturing Company, for purchasing the one millionth ADAM Remote I/O module, the ADAM-6024-AE, a 12-channel universal I/O module.
The good ol’ “You’re the one-millionth customer” award. Frankly, we must say it’s nice to see relationships between vendors, distributors and companies reach this level -- and we appreciate companies who take the time to mark the importance of that.
Brad Swanlund, assistant product manager at B&B Electronics, said, “Congratulations to Advantech on reaching a very impressive milestone. The ADAM modules are very versatile and provide a lot of value, which is why they sell so well.”
Founded in 1992, Advantech’s ADAM Remote I/O Modules have been a regular feature in the industrial automation field, from the early RS-485-based ADAM-4000 series to the more recent Ethernet-based ADAM-6000 I/O series. The modules can usually be found embedded somewhere as an integral keystone, and support much larger interconnected systems with reliable functions and strong features.
Recently, TMC’s (News - Alert) Carolyn J. Dawson wrote, “designed for satellite up-link applications in ground station terminals, Advantech Wireless has developed a series of new 900 Watt and 1600 Watt Ku Band Outdoor Solid State Modular Amplifier System after receiving significant order for delivery.”
Known as the Summit Series, these amplifiers are made with solid state technology that offer the highest power.
