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."

Manuals1563 E1 and E2 User's Guide

E1 and E2 brain boards are drop-in replacements for B1 and B2 Optomux brain boards. E1s and E2s offer both serial and Ethernet networking as well as multiple simultaneous protocols, including Optomux over both serial and Ethernet, Modbus/TCP, and OptoMMP (the memory-mapped protocol also used with SNAP Ethernet systems).

E1 and E2 brain boards can also be used with PAC Project software, such as PAC Control and OptoOPCServer.

Product Data Sheets & Overviews1567 E1 and E2 Architecture and Migration Overview
The E1 and E2 brain boards are Ethernet-ready I/O and communication processors for digital and analog I/O systems. Designed as drop-in replacements for Opto 22's serial-based B1 and B2 brain boards, the E1 and E2 support both serial and Ethernet networking and multiple simultaneous protocols, including Optomux, OptoMMP, and Modbus/TCP.

This overview describes the system capabilities of the E1 and E2 and illustrates methods for migrating existing Optomux systems to use Ethernet networking, while preserving existing I/O racks, modules, and field wiring.

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.
