Production Specification

The SNAP PAC Learning Center is a fully functional, complete package of Opto 22 hardware and software that provides everything you need to learn about Opto 22’s SNAP PAC System. The Learning Center includes PAC Project Basic software, a SNAP-PAC-R1 rack-mounted controller, SNAP I/O modules and mounting rack, and a load panel with digital and analog sensors and actuators (switches, LEDs, a temperature probe, a meter, and so on).

The included step-by-step tutorial guides you through the hardware assembly and software installation and gives you hands-on programming experience with the PAC Project software. You will configure I/O points, read and write to those points, create several flowcharts as part of a control strategy, and build a graphical user interface.

Because the SNAP PAC Learning Center consists of the same field-proven, real hardware and software used by Opto 22 customers all over the world, you'll be able to apply not only the knowledge you've learned, but also the actual Learning Center hardware and software in your next automation project.

This tutorial is based on the hardware and software that come with a SNAP PAC Learning Center (part number SNAP-PACLC).

If you don’t have a Learning Center but you’re comfortable using PAC Manager™ and PAC Control™, you can modify the instructions to work with your own Opto 22 devices.

You’ll need:


 

Connect Real-world Data to an AT&T M2X Device Technical Note

This technical note shows you how to send real-world data, in this example a temperature in degrees F, to an AT&T M2X device in the cloud.

Opto 22 RoHS 2 Statement of Compliance - Restriction of Hazardous Substances

This document is a statement of compliance with the EU Directive 2011/65/EU, Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS 2). This document lists Opto 22 products that comply with the substance restrictions of the RoHS2 directive.

SNAP PAC Memory Usage Technical Note

This technical note shows how SNAP PAC memory, both volatile and non-volatile, is used. It compares memory available in the standalone SNAP PAC S-series, on-the-rack SNAP PAC R-series, and software-based SoftPAC controllers, and it also shows differences between wired Ethernet PACs and Wired+Wireless™ PACs.

File Management and FTP on SNAP PAC controllers

This supplement to the SNAP PAC Learning Center Guide teaches you how to use the file management and FTP features of SNAP PAC controllers.

This PDF is the manual only; for the complete tutorial, download 1642_OptoTutorial_File_Management_And_FTP.zip.

The tutorial is designed to be used with a SNAP PAC Learning Center. If you don't have a Learning Center but are using SNAP PACs with ioControl, you will still find information in the PDF to be useful.

OptoTutorial: SNAP PAC PID

This supplement to the SNAP PAC Learning Center Guide teaches you how to use proportional integral derivative (PID) loops with PAC Control software and a SNAP PAC R-series controller.

This PDF is the manual only; for the complete tutorial, download 1641_OptoTutorial_SNAP_PAC_PID.zip.

The tutorial is designed to be used with a SNAP PAC Learning Center. If you don't have a Learning Center but are using PID with PAC Control, you will still find conceptual information in the PDF to be useful.

SNAP PAC Learning Center Guide

The SNAP PAC Learning Center Guide is a hands-on, learn-by-example training course developed for use with the SNAP-PACLC Learning Center kit.

Each chapter of the guide introduces aspects of the SNAP hardware and the PAC Project software suite. You'll learn to install and configure hardware, read and write to points, develop a control application (called a strategy), and create an HMI to interact with the controller and I/O.

This file contains only the guide itself as a PDF; for the complete tutorial, download 1638_SNAP_PAC_Learning_Center.zip.

NOTE: This document replaces form #1408, which was used with the SNAP Ultimate I/O Learning Center. The older learning center is an obsolete product that has been replaced by the new SNAP PAC Learning Center.
