M4RTU

Production Specification

Opto 22 modular controller designed for use with legacy FactoryFloor software.

NOTE: For new development, we recommend a SNAP PAC programmable automation controller and the PAC Project software suite. SNAP PAC controllers are more powerful and less expensive.

For system expansion or modernization, you can migrate to the SNAP PAC System from FactoryFloor. Learn how to migrate.

BETA firmware for OptoControl-based controllers

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.

M4RTU Controller Firmware

This download contains the current firmware for the M4RTU controller. The download also includes firmware for SNAP-LCM4, SNAP-LCSX, SNAP-LCSX-PLUS, M4, and other Opto 22 OptoControl-based controllers.

AutoCAD Drawings

This file contains AutoCAD drawings of Opto 22 products dating from 1988 to 2003. These are the same drawings that have been available on our BBS. Included is an Excel file describing the file names and relevant Opto 22 part numbers.

Controller Time Synchronization Application

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:

  • SNAP PAC S- and R-Series
  • Ultimate I/O (UIO)
  • SNAP-LCE
  • SNAP-LCM4
  • M4
  • M4RTU
  • M4IO
This download is freeware. Before downloading, read the Legal Agreement.

Cyrano Flash Firmware

Current release of 16-bit Cyrano firmware. This firmware is required to run Cyrano strategies on legacy Opto 22 controllers.

Cyrano Flash Firmware and Installation Utility

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).

Cyrano Software

The predecessor to OptoControl, Cyrano is a DOS application for flowchart control programming. This software does not run under Windows NT.

Ethernet Controller Driver - Linux

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

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

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.

OptoTerm Utility for OptoControl Controllers

This download contains a full installation of the most recent version of OptoTerm, a software utility for:

  • Downloading new firmware to an OptoControl-based controller.
  • Viewing the status of an OptoControl-based controller.
