What is the Allen-Bradley Data Table Access Module (DTAM)
DTAM, which stands for “data table access module,” would commonly be referred to today as a text based operator interface.
The original 1747-DTAM-E wasn't the easiest product to use. It's main purpose was to allow an operator to access and change SLC-500 data table values. But when Spectrum Control's released their Spectrum Operator Interface (SOI) in the early nineties, Rockwell quickly began marketing that product as the DTAM Plus.
The DTAM Plus was programmed with DTAM Programming Software, or DPS. It allowed the user to add and edit text displays, menus, assign function key functions, and display bar graphs. Over time as the DTAM family grew to include the DTAM Micro and MicroView, the DPS software was updated to support them as well.
After well over a decade of selling the DTAM product line, as Rockwell's sales of the product slowed due in large part to the release of less expensive Graphical HMI's, they returned sales and marketing of the DTAM line back to Spectrum Controls who still sells some of these units today.
