This README file lists revision changes made to the firmware used in the following Opto 22 controllers that run OptoControl strategies: G4LC32, G4LC32SX, M4, M4IO, M4RTU, SNAP-LCSX, SNAP-LCSX-PLUS, and SNAP-LCM4.
This README file lists revision changes made to the firmware used in the following Opto 22 controllers that run Cyrano strategies: G4LC32, G4LC32SX, G4LC32ISA, G4LC32ISA-LT, M4, M4IO, M4RTU, M4RTU Rev.2, SNAP-LCM4, SNAP-LCSX, and SNAP-LCSX-PLUS.
This reference manual provides complete specifications and instructions to set up and install an M4RTU or M4IO controller.
Ballarat Health Services in Victoria, Australia, is a major health care organization comprising two hospitals, convalescent homes, psychiatric services, six nursing home hostels, and rehabilitation centers. Ballarat upgraded from older Opto 22 M4 controllers and now uses Opto 22's SNAP PAC System for equipment automation and building management. Their broad set of applications includes remote monitoring, alarming, process and discrete control, and data acquisition for performance optimization, energy management, and regulatory compliance reporting.
This document is the Manufacturer's Declaration for the listed products as mentioned in the attachment - to which this confirmation refers - that they are in accordance with the mentioned European, international and/or national standards and regulations.
This download contains BETA firmware for Opto 22 controllers running OptoControl strategies.
Beta Version Disclaimer:
OptoControl is a legacy product, which is no longer getting new features and no longer going through official release cycles. Beta versions of the firmware are made available as-is for those who need the related bug fixes.
In general, beta versions will include bug fixes since the last official release, without adding new features. This usually enhances product stability without introducing unwanted side effects. Beta versions for legacy products have been through basic testing only, and will not be formally tested.
Ultimately, the choice will be up to the user as to whether the benefit of using the beta version is worth the risk. We simply want to make the beta version available so that you have options.
This download contains the current firmware for the M4 controller. The download also includes firmware for SNAP-LCM4, SNAP-LCSX, SNAP-LCSX-PLUS, M4RTU, and other Opto 22 OptoControl-based controllers.
This software application updates the internal clock for an Ethernet-connected Opto 22 controller. The application runs in Windows at the command prompt, and can update controller clocks regularly or just once.
This application is used with the following Opto 22 controllers:
Current release of 16-bit Cyrano firmware. This firmware is required to run Cyrano strategies on legacy Opto 22 controllers.
Current release of 16-bit Cyrano firmware. This firmware is required to run Cyrano strategies on Opto 22 controllers. This file installs the Opto 22 Flash 200 utility (version R3.1i) and Cyrano firmware (version R3.2j).
The predecessor to OptoControl, Cyrano is a DOS application for flowchart control programming. This software does not run under Windows NT.
A demo that's like the OptoTerm program for Windows. It demonstrates how to retrieve strategy information from the controller and other simple information. This package only supports an Ethernet interfaced controller (SNAP-LCM4, M4, or M4RTU).
Mistic MDS is the predecessor to OptoServer. It is a DDE-only server for the Cyrano tagname database that operates under Windows 3.x.
Mistic MMI is the predecessor to OptoDisplay. It is a 16-bit Windows 3.x Man-Machine Interface package that is tightly integrated with Cyrano.
Use this library file together with the Modbus Integration Kit for OptoControl.
