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 & Overviews1556 SNAP High-Density Digital Modules Data Sheet

SNAP I/O high-density digital modules from Opto 22 provide 16 or 32 digital input or output points in one compact SNAP module. These modules are ideal for OEMs and others who have high point-count applications, or for anyone requiring more than 64 digital points on a single SNAP PAC rack. The high-density configuration reduces per-point costs of digital I/O systems by providing up to eight times as many I/O points in the same space.

SNAP high-density digital modules are part of the SNAP PAC System. They can also be used as part of intelligent remote I/O with an Allen-Bradley Logix PLC system.

HDD modules require a SNAP PAC R-series controller or a SNAP PAC brain for I/O processing. These modules work with standard wired controllers and brains and with Wired+Wireless models.

Manuals1547 SNAP High-Density Digital Module User's Guide
This guide covers how to install and test SNAP 16-channel and 32-channel digital modules. These modules provide 16 or 32 points of digital input or digital output in the same space as a 4-channel digital module. They are ideal for OEMs and for anyone who needs up to 512 digital points on a single mounting rack.

Manuals1592 SNAP PAC S-Series Controllers User's Guide

This user's guide shows you how to install and use Opto 22's SNAP PAC S-series programmable automation controllers. SNAP PAC S-series controllers are one of four components of the SNAP PAC System. These controllers work with PAC Project software, SNAP PAC brains, and SNAP I/O modules to form an easy-to-use system for remote monitoring, industrial control, and data acquisition.

SNAP PAC controllers are programmed with PAC Control Basic or PAC Control Professional, Opto 22's flowchart-based development software, which is part of the PAC Project software suite.

Manuals1595 SNAP PAC R-Series Controllers User's Guide

This user's guide shows you how to install and use Opto 22's SNAP PAC R-series programmable automation controllers. SNAP PAC R-series controllers are on-the-rack industrial controllers. Each controller monitors and controls a wide range of devices and equipment wired to the I/O on its own rack and on distributed racks equipped with SNAP PAC EB-series brains. Alternatively, the R-series controller can be used as a slave to a larger, SNAP PAC S-series standalone industrial controller.

SNAP PAC controllers are programmed with PAC Control Basic or PAC Control Professional, Opto 22's flowchart-based development software, which is part of the PAC Project software suite.
