Verify Voltage to Avoid Hardware Problems

Video: Verifying voltage at the rack

Opto 22 I/O racks require 5.0 to 5.2 volts DC in order to operate well. But what's the best way to verify that the rack is receiving the correct voltage?

This new OptoMinute video shows you how. In just over a minute, Application Engineer Ben Orchard shows you how to measure voltage at the rack to avoid hardware problems.

Landfill Sites Use PACs to Clean Up Leachate

Landfill site case study

The average person living in a developed country produces between a half ton and one and a quarter tons of waste, every year. Where does all this waste end up?

Well over half of it is buried in landfills, where the leachate—rainwater that picks up contaminates from the waste—must be treated and monitored, so that no contaminates escape and foul public water sources.

Enter SNAP PAC controllers.

In the United Kingdom, Opto 22 Distributor and system integrator System Devices UK Ltd. uses SNAP PACs and I/O in flexible systems they design for landfill operators. Our latest case study explores such a system in Lancashire, England.

Among other things, the PAC controls an extensive series of remote wells and pumps using Modbus/TCP, sends text messages to technicians if alarms occur, collects data for regulatory compliance, and segments the control system from the corporate computer network.
