This OptoNews Special Edition is for customers near Chicago and Detroit.

Are you looking to expand the I/O capabilities of your Allen-Bradley ControlLogix or CompactLogix system?

SNAP PAC SystemPlease join us for a half-day technical seminar, hosted by Opto 22 and your local distributors Kiser Controls and Kundinger Controls, to learn how you can add intelligent remote I/O to your Allen-Bradley PLC systems—without programming!

This approach optimizes PLC & network performance by moving processor-intensive tasks such as analog scaling, thermocouple linearization, and PID loop control into your I/O system, without added programming or complexity.

This seminar is essential for users, machine builders, and systems integrators involved with Rockwell Automation/Allen-Bradley systems.

Seminar Agenda


Presentation: Using Distributed Intelligent I/O with Logix Platforms

  • Brief introduction to Opto 22
  • Background on Ethernet in industrial automation systems
  • The PLC I/O expansion dilemma
  • An alternative approach
  • Description & clarifications regarding Allen-Bradley’s EtherNet/IP protocol
  • Examples of intelligent functions (both analog & digital) that can be easily handled at the I/O level, without the need for programming



  • Use free EtherNet/IP Configurator to establish communications between an Opto 22 intelligent I/O system and a Logix PLC
  • Convert a thermocouple input to linearized Engineering Units
  • Configure a digital input to be used as a counter
  • Show that no programming of the Logix PLC is required, only configuration of a RSLogix 5000 project
  • Show additional intelligent functions that can be configured and run in the Opto 22 I/O, including:
    • PID loop control
    • Serial device control
    • Analog scaling
    • Distributed digital funcions
