Opto 22 SNAP I/O rceives ODVA certification
Temecula, Calif. October 23 - Opto 22 has received ODVA certification for its recently announced SNAP-PAC-EB1 and SNAP-PAC -EB2 SNAP I/O processors, which feature support for Ethernet-based control systems that communicate via the EtherNet/IP protocol.
ODVA is an international association comprising members from the world's leading automation companies. The organization supports network technologies based on the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP), such as DeviceNet, ControlNet and EtherNet/IP. ODVA manages the development of these technologies and assists manufacturers and end users via standards development, certification and education. ODVA-certification is considered by the industrial sector to be the de facto standard for ensuring that products are built to the various CIP specifications and that they will operate effectively in multi-vendor systems.
For Opto 22, ODVA certification for its SNAP I/O required submission of its intelligent remote SNAP-PAC-EB1 and SNAP-PAC-EB2 communication processors, which then underwent a battery of performance, reliability and compatibility tests. After passing these tests, this version of SNAP I/O is now ODVA EtherNet/IP Conformance Tested, giving automation engineers new intelligent remote I/O options for EtherNet/IP-based systems, such as Rockwell Automation/Allen-Bradley ControlLogix and CompactLogix control systems. SNAP I/O now integrates into these platforms natively and communicates with the Logix-based programmable logic controller (PLC) with no additional programming required.
