Opto 22 launches learning package for Snap Ultimate I/O

Temecula, CA—To help users implement its Snap Ultimate I/O remote monitoring, control and data acquisition system at their own pace, Opto 22 recently developed and released March 4 its Snap Ultimate I/O Learning Center.


Temecula, CA— To help users implement its Snap Ultimate I/O remote monitoring, control and data acquisition system at their own pace, Opto 22 ware for industrial automation, remote monitoring, and enterprise data acquisition applications.

The company adds that its Snap Ultimate I/O Learning Center, based on Opto 22's Snap Ethernet Demo Center, is a standalone system that includes a Snap Ultimate processor (or brain) and assorted I/O modules, along with a Snap rack, power supply, load panel, and cables. The learning center also comes with a training manual and user's guide, plus a number of software applications and utilities, including ioControl, ioManager, OptoOPCServer, and ioDisplay, so users can quickly begin developing industrial applications for automation and capturing and delivering real-time industrial data to enterprise software and databases. Users will gain hands-on experience configuring I/O points; reading and writing to those points; writing simple control strategies; and building a graphical user interface.

Snap Ultimate I/O Learning Center was developed in response to the success of Opto 22's free training for Snap Ultimate I/O. The company has offered a complimentary training since July 2002.

'Originally, we intended to provide free training only through 2002, but the response was so overwhelming that we extended it through 2003,' says Alexi Gray, Opto 22's training director. 'Now, to meet continued demand, we've developed this self-paced learning tool for potential and existing users and all others interested in our Snap Ultimate I/O.'
