Manuals1465 OptoMMP Protocol Guide

This guide is for programmers who are writing custom applications to communicate with Opto 22 memory-mapped devices. These devices include SNAP PAC controllers and SNAP PAC EB and SB brains; G4EB2 brains; SNAP Ultimate, SNAP Ethernet, and SNAP Simple I/O; E1 and E2 brain boards, and SNAP-LCE controllers.

The guide describes how to use the IEEE 1394-based OptoMMP memory-mapped protocol for programming. The guide also contains the complete memory map for all Opto 22 memory-mapped devices.

NOTE: This guide replaced previous individual programming guides for SNAP Ultimate I/O (form #1312) and SNAP Ethernet I/O (form #1227). This document was formerly called the "SNAP Ethernet-Based I/O Units Protocols and Programming Guide."

Case Studies2133 Case Study: Industrial Combustion and Gasification Research Facility
The Industrial Combustion and Gasification Research Facility (ICGRF) at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City was established in 1995. The original facility housed a 1.5 MW pulverized coal research reactor to investigate the formation and control of oxides of nitrogen in utility boilers. Since that time, the ICGRF has grown to 30,000 square feet with eight pilot-scale reactors and numerous small research and support facilities.

The original facility equipment was controlled and monitored by Opto 22 automation systems and, as the facility grew, more Opto 22 systems were installed. The current project with Opto 22 consists of removing all legacy control hardware and updating it with the latest SNAP PAC System hardware and software to form a modern, integrated automation system.

Manuals1191 SNAP Serial Communication Modules User's Guide

The SNAP-SCM-232, SNAP-SCM-485-422, SNAP-SCM-PROFI, SNAP-SCM-W2, SNAP-SCM-CAN2B, and SNAP-SCM-ST2 serial communication modules are designed for use with the SNAP PAC System and can also be used in standalone I/O units. Each of these modules conveniently provides serial data at a remote Ethernet location.

  • - The SNAP-SCM-232 and SNAP-SCM-485-422 typically interface with printers, scales, chart recorders, and barcode systems.
  • - The SNAP-SCM-PROFI provides a standard electrical interface with PROFIBUS DP® networks.
  • - The SNAP-SCM-CAN2B provides an interface to a Controller Area Network (CAN), so your SNAP PAC system can receive data from CANbus devices.
  • - The SNAP-SCM-ST2 provides pulse and direction signals for stepper motor drives.
  • - The SNAP-SCM-W2 complies with the Wiegand interface format and is used for access control applications.

Product Data Sheets & Overviews1453 SNAP Power Monitoring Modules Data Sheet

This data sheet describes the SNAP-AIPM, SNAP-AIPM-3, and SNAP-AIPM-3V analog input modules. These modules monitor AC voltage and current through a SNAP PAC rack-mounted controller or SNAP PAC brain.

The SNAP-AIPM monitors single-phase AC. The SNAP-AIPM-3 and SNAP-AIPM-3V monitor three-phase AC.

The SNAP-AIPM not only measures volts and amps simultaneously, but also calculates true power and volt-amps. From these values, you can easily calculate power factor. The SNAP-AIPM-3 and SNAP-AIPM-3V measure volts and amps and calculate true power and volt-amps for each of the three phases, and in addition calculate true power sums for all three.
