The SNAP-B3000-ENET Ethernet I/O brain is a compact I/O and communications processor that connects real-world analog, digital, and serial devices with Ethernet networks for monitoring, control, and data acquisition. The brain can be used in an I/O unit as part of a SNAP PAC control system or in an independent I/O unit. The SNAP-B3000-ENET is mounted on a SNAP B-series rack with up to 16 analog, digital, and serial SNAP I/O modules. The brain offers local intelligence for I/O features such as latching, high-speed counting,quadrature counters, thermocouple linearization, scaling, clamping, and 16 PID loops. In addition to I/O features, the brain provides communication options including 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, PPP over a modem connection, Modbus/TCP, OPC, SNMP, and SMTP. High-performance, flexible SNAP Ethernet brains are part of Opto 22’s SNAP Ethernet systems, which let you connect to stateof-the-art Opto 22 industrial I/O hardware using a standard TCP/IP Ethernet connection. Combined with analog, digital, and special-purpose I/O modules on a standard SNAP mounting rack, the SNAP Ethernet brain forms an I/O unit that can be used alone or as part of a distributed control system based on an Opto 22 industrial controller, such as the SNAP PAC standalone or rack-mounted programmable automation controllers. A SNAP Ethernet system can be attached to existing Ethernet networks, making it easy to add monitoring and control where necessary. Or you can use standard Ethernet hardware to build an independent control network. You can also communicate with the system via a modem connection using Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP). A modem connection is ideal for remote locations or other places where an Ethernet network is not practical. The SNAP-B3000-ENET brain is designed to remotely interface with a mix of analog, digital, and serial modules. It is factory mutual approved.
