SNAP-LCE

Production Specification

NOTE: Although fully supported and still in production, this is a legacy product and not recommended for new designs. For new designs, see the standalone SNAP-PAC-S1 and the rack-mounted SNAP-PAC-R1 controllers. SNAP PAC controllers provide more power and additional network connections. SNAP PACs run PAC Control strategies; ioControl strategies can be simply upgraded to PAC Control.

To compare product features, see Legacy and Current Product Comparison and Compatibility Charts.

ioProject Software Suite Data Sheet

This data sheet describes Opto 22's legacy ioProject software suite, which provides control and HMI development tools for a SNAP Ethernet-based control system. The ioProject suite includes ioControl, ioDisplay, OptoOPCServer, and ioManager.

NOTE: For new development, use a SNAP PAC controller and PAC Project software.

SNAP-LCE Data Sheet

The SNAP-LCE, part of Opto 22's SNAP Ethernet Systems family, is a older, standalone, small-footprint, industrial controller designed for use with SNAP Ethernet-based I/O units and ioProject software. It is used primarily in industrial control applications. The SNAP-LCE provides real-time control and is programmed with the included ioControl, a flowchart-based control programming software.

NOTE: The SNAP-LCE and ioProject are not recommended for new development. For new development, use a SNAP PAC controller and PAC Project software.

SNAP Ultimate I/O Firmware README

This README file lists revision changes made to the SNAP Ultimate I/O firmware used in SNAP Ultimate brains.

ioProject Readme Notes

Readme for ioProject Basic and Professional, the legacy versions of PAC Project. Includes information on features, enhancements, and bug fixes for each ioProject application: ioControl, ioDisplay, OptoOPCServer, ioManager, and ioUtilities.

Allen-Bradley DF1 Integration Kit For ioControl Users Guide

The Allen-Bradley DF1 Integration Kit (Part # IOP-INT-ABDF1) provides users of Opto 22’s ioControl software(version 6.0 and above) an easy method of communicating with Allen-Bradley drivers or PLCs using the DF1 protocol. Opto 22 controllers can act as either a “master” or a “slave” device. They can be connected directly to the serial port on an Allen-Bradley PLC or to Data Highway networks using standard Data Highway interface devices.

SNAP-LCE User's Guide

NOTE:This document covers a legacy product which is not recommended for new development. For new development, we recommend SNAP PAC S-series or R-series controllers.

The SNAP-LCE is a stand-alone, small-footprint, industrial controller designed for use with SNAP Ethernet-based I/O units. It is used primarily in industrial control applications. The SNAP-LCE provides real-time control and is programmed with the included ioControl.

OptoMMP Protocol Guide

This guide is for programmers who are writing custom applications to communicate with Opto 22 memory-mapped devices. These devices include SNAP PAC controllers and SNAP PAC EB and SB brains; G4EB2 brains; SNAP Ultimate, SNAP Ethernet, and SNAP Simple I/O; E1 and E2 brain boards, and SNAP-LCE controllers.

The guide describes how to use the IEEE 1394-based OptoMMP memory-mapped protocol for programming. The guide also contains the complete memory map for all Opto 22 memory-mapped devices.

NOTE: This guide replaced previous individual programming guides for SNAP Ultimate I/O (form #1312) and SNAP Ethernet I/O (form #1227). This document was formerly called the "SNAP Ethernet-Based I/O Units Protocols and Programming Guide."

ioManager User's Guide

ioManager is the software tool used to assign IP addresses and configure I/O points and system functions on most Opto 22 Ethernet-based hardware, including SNAP-LCE controllers: SNAP Ethernet, SNAP Ultimate, SNAP Simple, E1, and E2 I/O units; and SNAP-IT units. ioManager can also be used to directly read or write to these devices.

ioControl Commands Quick Reference Card

Quick reference card for using ioControl, including all standard ioControl commands and their OptoScript equivalents. ioControl is part of the ioProject software suite.

ioControl Command Reference

This command reference describes in detail all ioControl programming commands, or instructions. Use with form #1300, the ioControl User's Guide. ioControl is part of the ioProject software suite.

ioControl User's Guide

The ioControl User's Guide includes programming instructions and tips for developing control strategies to run on SNAP Ultimate controller/brains and SNAP-LCE controllers. ioControl is part of the ioProject software suite.

SNAP PAC System Migration Technical Note

This document describes migration options for customers integrating the SNAP PAC System with older Opto 22 systems. It explains the SNAP PAC System's similarities and differences with earlier systems, defines legacy products, and shows how to mix old and new hardware.

Customers moving to the SNAP PAC System may also want to consult form #1693, Legacy and Current Product Comparison and Compatibility Charts.
