The SNAP-SCM-232 provides two RS-232 serial communication ports for two channels of high-speed, isolated serial data. Used with a brain or R-series controller, the module connects serial devices such as printers, scales, chart recorders, and barcode systems to an Ethernet network for control, monitoring, or data acquisition.
Part of the SNAP PAC System, the module mounts on a SNAP PAC rack
with a SNAP PAC brain
or rack-mounted controller
. Analog, digital, and serial I/O modules can all be on the same rack. Such an I/O unit is also well suited for PC-based control or for use as intelligent remote I/O for an Allen-Bradley MicroLogix PLC system
, or other RSLogix-based system, such as ControlLogix or CompactLogix.
NOTE: The SNAP-SCM-232 can also be used with a legacy SNAP Ultimate, SNAP Ethernet, or SNAP Simple brain.
For similar serial communication using RS-485/422, see SNAP-SCM-485-422
