All of us here at Opto 22 want to take a moment to thank you for your business this year. We tend to have a closer relationship with our customers than many automation manufacturers do, and we sincerely appreciate your interest in our products. We wish you a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2012.
The latest in our lineup of new high-density digital modules: the SNAP-IDC-32D.
This new addition can be used to sense on/off status for 2.5 to 12 VDC inputs from sources such as proximity switches, limit switches, push buttons, and pilot switches. Because it has negative common connections, it's suited for PNP or sourcing type inputs.
The 32 channels on this small-footprint module make it ideal for applications where space is limited. Use the SNAP-IDC-32D with SNAP PAC R-series controllers (wired or Wired+Wireless) or with SNAP PAC brains (either Ethernet brains or serial brains).

Your OptoScript code compiles and runs—great! But when you come back to it in six weeks or six years, will you be able to change or add to it easily?
If you're like us, you may have fallen into some bad habits that make your code hard to maintain.
Opto 22 engineers Ben Orchard and Mary St. John come to the rescue in this new video with three simple steps to simplify your future maintenance.
By the way, these three steps apply to any kind of programming, not just to OptoScript.
