Free tech seminar explores Logix systems options

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

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 as Snap I/O connects to and communicates 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.

Benson Hougland, Opto 22 vice president of marketing, said the seminars began in October 2008 and are being extended into 2009 due to demand. The series continues throughout the U.S. with stops in Tampa, Nashville, Salt Lake City, Seattle, San Francisco, and other major cities. He said Opto 22 has received positive feedback from past seminar attendees regarding the technical expertise of the presenters and the quality of live demonstrations.

Dates and locations for the free “IO4AB” seminar are available online at www.opto22.com/ad/io4ab_seminar.aspx . www.io4ab.com for more information.
