Snap-PAC-R1-W Wired+Wireless Programmable Automation Controller

Opto 22 Opto 22 calls its Snap-PAC-R1-W Wired+Wireless Programmable Automation Controller the most powerful and versatile I/O and controller combination in Opto 22’s history. The company also claims this is the first controller in the industry to offer IEEE 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi wireless networking along with standard EtherNet networking in the same package.

Opto 22 calls its Snap-PAC-R1-W Wired+Wireless Programmable Automation Controller the most powerful and versatile I/O and controller combination in Opto 22’s history. The company also claims this is the first controller in the industry to offer IEEE 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi wireless networking along with standard EtherNet networking in the same package. Opto 22 says the rack-mounted controller is good news for automation professionals looking for more than one option for creating industrials networks. Devices like the Opto 22 Snap-PAC-R1-W make it easier to design, build, and modify control systems. The Snap-PAC-R1-W works like a laptop—plug an EtherNet cable in for traditional networking, or switch on the Wi-Fi radio for wireless networking. No additional I/O hardware is required to use wireless; all functions work the same no matter which networking method is used. This dual functionality provides numerous benefits to users. They can use controllers and I/O in remote or inaccessible areas, or where network wiring is difficult or impossible to install.
