Third-party remote I/O available for ControlLogix, CompactLogix

Opto 22 firmware support for EtherNet/IP provides options.
By Control Engineering Staff November 13, 2008

A new firmware version 8.3 for Opto 22’s SNAP-PAC -EB1 and -EB2 Ethernet I/O provides support for Rockwell Automation/Allen-Bradley Ethernet-based control systems.
SNAP I/O now integrates into Logix platforms natively , maintaining a homogeneous environment where new I/O implementations are simple, compatibility is guaranteed, and no additional programming and associated software costs are required. Users can modify or expand systems without additional logic programming. Control functions such as PID loop control, high-speed counting and latching, quadrature counting, pulsing, thermocouple linearization, analog ramping, scaling, engineering unit conversion, temperature conversion, and time-proportional output can be distributed and performed at the I/O level.– Edited by Renee Robbins , senior editor
