The B3000-B is a mistic serial brain designed as a modern drop-in replacement for the serial B3000 brain, which is obsolete as of October 2009.
The B3000-B has the same functionality as the B3000, except that it does not support the Optomux protocol. Customers requiring an Optomux brain should see the B3000-B-OMUX
Like the older B3000, the B3000-B is a high-performance processor used to remotely control a mix of SNAP analog and digital I/O modules on a B-series rack.
The brain connects to an Opto 22 controller or a host computer over an RS-485 serial link. It works with both legacy FactoryFloor (mistic) controllers,
such as the SNAP-LCM4 and SNAP-LCSX, and with SNAP PAC S-series controllers
. (With a SNAP PAC controller, PAC Project Professional is required.)
As with the B3000, not all SNAP I/O modules are compatible with the B3000-B. See Legacy and Current Product Comparison and Compatibility Charts
If you are building or expanding
a system with SNAP PACs and need brains that communicate serially, use SNAP PAC SB brains
instead of the B3000-B. If you're ready to modernize or need easier system integration, see the groov EPIC System
. Fully compatible with SNAP PAC, groov
EPIC offers secure, efficient data processing and communication for industrial internet of things applications, as well as real-time control and I/O at the edge of your network.
