Signature Projects

  • ACE Opto 22 projects are typically based on the PAC controllers and SNAP I/O. Our offices are interested in groov EPIC and RIO and have participated in Opto 22 presentations.
  • Our Connecticut office did a project at ISP Freetown to replace the brainboard with an Opto 22 PAC controller and has done other PAC Controller and I/O projects.
  • ACE did a Citect SCADA interface to Opto 22 E1 (Digital) E2 (Analog) and SNAP-PAC-EB2 brain boards at Siemens Healthineers in Newark.
  • ACE did a Cryro Tech Job which included a number of 352 panels for a Helium system with Opto 22 to isolate inputs for 352 24vdc inputs.
  • ACE did a project that used the Opto 22 G4 modules for APACS relay MTAs for the Modular Marshalled termination assemblies.
