I/O system certified by association for DeviceNet and EtherNet/IP

Opto 22 Snap I/O receives ODVA certification after its intelligent remote I/O system passes EtherNet/IP conformance testing.


Temecula, CA – Opto 22, developer and manufacturer of the award-winning Snap PAC System family of programmable automation controllers, I/O products, and accessories, says it 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 with members from theation, and education. ODVA-certification helps ensure that products are built to CIP specifications so they will operate effectively in multi-vendor systems.
Opto 22 submittedEtherNet/IP based systems, such as Rockwell Automation/Allen-Bradley ControlLogix and CompactLogix control systems, Opto 22 says.
Snap I/O integrates into these platforms natively and communicates with the Logix-based programmable logic controller (PLC) without additional programming. Opto 22 says that means that
Because Snap I/O systems can perform a variety of advanced control functions (PID loop control, high-speed counting and latching, quadrature counting, pulsing, thermocouple linearization, analog ramping, and more) independent of the Logix PLC, engineers can modify or expand their systems to meet
