'C' Programmable Network Interface Module for Quantum


Descontinuado: Producto no disponible en stock. More Info

The 'C' Programmable Network Interface Module allows user-developed 'C' applications to operate on the Quantum platform. This is the ideal module to speed up custom ASCII data communications or to protect a proprietary algorithm. Applications using the ADM module include: Bar Code Scanner interface, legacy ASCII protocol connections, Terminal Port Emulation, Printer Driver, and customized serial communications.

Características y Beneficios

The ADM module is a single-slot, backplane compatible solution for the Quantum platform that supports user-developed applications. 'C' code applications are developed using Digital Mars or Borland/Microsoft 16-bit development tools, downloaded to, and then debugged on the module.

The ProTalk module is a powerful platform for the Quantum family of processors. Developed under license from Schneider Electric, the module incorporates proprietary backplane technology that enables powerful data access to the Quantum processor.


The PTQ-ADM module is the ideal solution where serial connectivity must be added to the Quantum platform, or where a proprietary algorithm must be protected. Applications using the ADM module include:

  • Bar Code Scanner interface
  • Legacy ASCII protocol connections
  • Terminal Port Emulation
  • Printer Driver (Alarm/Status printer)
  • Customized Serial Communications


  •  Single Slot - Quantum backplane compatible
  •  The module is recognized as an Options module and has access to PLC memory for data transfer
  •  Configuration data is stored in non-volatile memory in the ProTalk® module
  •  Up to six modules can be placed in a rack
  •  Local rack - The module must be placed in the same rack as processor
  •  Compatible with common Quantum programming tools: UnityPro XL, Concept, ProWORX
  •  Quantum data types supported: 3x, 4x
  •  High speed data transfer across backplane provides quick data update times
