Opto 22's SNAP PAC Racks

March 2, 2007
Company Simplifies I/O racks for its SNAP PAC System™

Opto 22 has simplified its line of I/O racks for its new SNAP PAC System. The new SNAP PAC racks improve flexibility and applicability to all SNAP I/O makes it simpler to configure an I/O system, and reduce the number of spares needed as customers seek to purchase, deploy, and maintain control, automation, and data acquisition systems.

The new SNAP PAC racks are used with rack-mounted SNAP PAC R-series programmable automation controllers (PACs) and new SNAP PAC brains. The SNAP PAC racks are available in four sizes and can accommodate 4, 8, 12, or 16 SNAP I/O modules, allowing up to 512 I/O points on a single rack. The new SNAP PAC racks allow users to mix any combination of analog, digital, serial, and special-purpose modules in any position on any rack. This flexibility—combined with standardized, consolidated mounting rack architecture—reduces the number of rack choices from fifteen to four, and eliminates confusion regarding compatibility and configuration of I/O in user applications.

The new SNAP PAC racks will be available March 1, 2007. About Opto 22
