Thinking about Wireless in Industrial Automation?

Wireless white paper

Wireless sounds great: you can reduce wiring costs and control or monitor areas you could never get to with a wired network. But several concerns remain.

Before you decide to go wireless or choose a system, take a look at our new white paper, Overcoming Concerns About Wireless in Industrial Automation. It discusses some issues you'll want to think about:

  • Security
  • Performance and reliability
  • I/O component availability and cost
  • Upfront expense in money and time

Wired and Wireless: You Can Have Both

Opto 22 Wireless PACs and I/O

Here's big news: we've just announced Opto 22 wired/wireless PACs and I/O.

Why is this big news?

  • Because you don't have to choose between wired and wireless—you get both in the same hardware.
  • Because all SNAP I/O modules and accessories work with wireless. You're not limited to a separate product line or a subset of regular products. All SNAP I/O works wirelessly.
  • Because all of the same PAC and brain functions and protocols work wirelessly as well as wired.

Read our white paper for more information.

Need to spec a system now?

Wired/wireless PACs and brains will be ready sometime this summer, but you can spec systems now.

We're adding a wireless radio to R-series and S-series PACs and EB brains. New PAC and brain part numbers will have -W at the end. Example: wired/wireless version of the SNAP-PAC-R1 will be SNAP-PAC-R1-W.

Since all functions remain the same and wireless is just added as another way to communicate, you can spec systems based on these current products:

All of the following parts will work wirelessly with full functionality (no change in part number):
