|SNAP-PAC-EB2 SNAP PAC Ethernet Brain, analog/digital/serial|
in distributed systems controlled by a SNAP PAC S-series or R-series controller, the SNAP-PAC-EB2 can also be used as
intelligent remote I/O with Allen-Bradley industrial PLC systems. The SNAP-PAC-EB2 provides local intelligence that frees
the controller (PAC or PLC) for supervisory tasks.
As an I/O processor, the SNAP PAC brain independently handles functions such as latching, thermocouple linearization,
watchdog timers, and PID loop control. These functions continue to work on the brain even if communication with the
SNAP PAC controller is lost.
The SNAP-PAC-EB2 brain supports all the SNAP I/O analog, digital, and serial input and output modules available on the
Opto 22 website. These modules can all be mixed on the same mounting rack and placed in any position on the rack.
The brain and modules mount on a SNAP PAC rack, which holds up to 4, 8, 12, or 16 modules.
In addition to I/O processing, the SNAP PAC brain communicates over a standard 10/100 Mbps Ethernet network. The
brain is equipped with two switched Ethernet network interfaces. Because these interfaces share a single IP address
and act just like an Ethernet switch, SNAP PAC brains can be installed in a multi-drop (daisy-chain) configuration,
extending the control network without the added expense of additional Ethernet network hardware. SNAP PAC brains
can also be installed in a star configuration using standard, off-the-shelf Ethernet network components.
The SNAP-PAC-EB2 brain supports communication using multiple protocols running simultaneously over Ethernet. Most
customers use the PAC Project software suite for control, monitoring, and data acquisition. At the same time, you can
communicate using other methods, including EtherNet/IP, Modbus/TCP, SNMP, SMTP, FTP, and OptoMMP.
Communication with OPC 2.0-compliant clients is available through OptoOPCServer.
The SNAP-PAC-EB2 brain provides basic digital functions but does not offer high-speed digital functions; if you need
high-speed counting (up to 20 KHz depending on the module), quadrature counting, pulse measurement, and frequency
and period measurement, choose the SNAP-PAC-EB1 brain instead.
NOTE: If you need a Factory Mutual-approved version of this brain, see the SNAP-PAC-EB2-FM.
