All Opto 22 industrial control and automation software and firmware can be downloaded at any time. While most software is free, some software must be purchased and will require an OptoPassword to install.
> If I bought software and a new version is released, can I get the upgrade for free?

What are these?
Software you install on your PC and use to create applications that run on or with Opto 22 systems (for example, PAC Project or OptoTerminal programming software).
Software you install on your PC and use to configure Opto 22 hardware (for example, PAC Manager).
Servers for communicating with Opto 22 systems using OLE for Process Control (OPC) from an OPC client, such as Opto 22's PAC Display or third-party HMIs.
Similar to the BIOS (basic input/output system) of a computer; software code you download into the ROM (read-only memory) of Opto 22 hardware. Determines the basic functions of the hardware. Sometimes referred to as a kernel.
Diagnostics & Utilities
Small applications used with Opto 22 systems, often for diagnosing problems.
SDKs & Driver Toolkits
System developers' toolkits and driver toolkits.
Self-paced tutorials to help you learn Opto 22 software and hardware.
Samples & Freeware
Sample code and applications developed by our engineers, which you can download and use in your projects. Please read the Samples & Freeware Legal Agreement before proceeding.
Tools for working with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)-based enterprise management systems, such as Computer Associates' Unicenter®, Hewlett-Packard's OpenView®, or IBM's Tivoli®.
Older software for legacy hardware products (for example, Cyrano and misticMMI).
Visio and AutoCAD drawings of selected Opto 22 hardware products.
OptoTutorial 1641: PID with PAC Control
This supplement to the SNAP PAC Learning Center Tutorial
teaches you how to use proportional integral derivative (PID
) loops with PAC Control
software and a SNAP PAC R-series controller
. This zip file includes the complete tutorial, sample files, and documentation.
The tutorial is designed to be used with a SNAP-PACLC
learning center kit. If you don't have a Learning Center but are using PID with PAC Control, you will find conceptual information in the PDF document
to be useful.
SNAP PAC Learning Center Tutorial
The SNAP PAC Learning Center tutorial is a hands-on, learn-by-example training course developed for use with the SNAP-PACLC
Learning Center kit.
Each part of the tutorial introduces aspects of the SNAP hardware and the PAC Project
software suite. You'll learn to install and configure hardware, read and write to points
, develop a control application (called a strategy), and create an HMI (human-machine interface) to interact with the controller
This zip file includes the complete tutorial with sample files and documentation.
OptoTutorial 1642: File Management and FTP
OptoTutorial 1502: Using OptoGSM I/O
OptoTutorial 1450: FTP and File Management
This ZIP file contains the complete tutorial on using ioControl's FTP and file management features. This tutorial includes a PDF document and sample ioControl files and shows how to use the FTP and file management features of ioControl to create data files, read the data files from an FTP client, and then control points by uploading data to the SNAP Ultimate brain via FTP.
This is a hands-on tutorial for use with a SNAP Ultimate I/O Learning Center. If you have a SNAP PAC Learning Center, see File Management and FTP on SNAP PAC controllers instead.
