Free seminar explores options to expand Logix systems

Opto 22 has extended its series of free technical seminars that explain the options they have for maintaining or expanding Rockwell Automation Allen-Bradley Logix systems.

Automation product options and alternatives are often sought during tough economic times. To meet that need, Opto 22 has extended its series of free technical seminars that explain the options they have for maintaining or expanding Rockwell Automation Allen-Bradley Logix systems. The seminar—called “IO4AB”—is designed to educate engineers and other automation professionals on the company’s Ethernet-based intelligent I/O for Allen-Bradley Logix Platforms.

Opto 22 makes SNAP I/O, an Ethernet-based input/output system for remote or distributed control systems. SNAP I/O integrates into Allen-Bradley ControlLogix and CompactLogix control system architectures natively, with no additional programming.

Seminar attendees will learn the scope and details of these capabilities and witness a live demonstration of SNAP I/O communicating with an Allen-Bradley CompactLogix programmable logic controller. The demonstration showcases distributed analog process control functions (including PID loop control, scaling, engineering unit conversion, and thermocouple linearization) being performed independently of the PLC. Discrete control capabilities will also be demonstrated.

The seminar series began in October of 2008, will continue throughout the U.S. with stops in Tampa, Nashville, Salt Lake City, Seattle, San Francisco, and other major cities. Dates and locations for “IO4AB” are available online . www.io4ab.com for more information.
