The B6 is obsolete and no longer available.
There is no direct or similar replacement. Our SNAP-PAC-R series
family of controllers or SNAP-PAC-EB series
brains are often used as part of a redesign, but both the hardware and software interfaces for these are completely different from those for the B6.
Please contact Opto 22 Pre-Sales engineers
with details about your specific application so they can help recommend parts for a redesign.
The B6 brain board is an addressable processor that controls up to 16 analog input and output points using the Pamux protocol. For PC-based control, the B6 links to an Opto 22 PCI-AC51 adapter card
in a host computer through a 50-pin header connector.
For stations on a Pamux bus to operate correctly, both ends of the bus must be terminated. Use part number TERM 1
or TERM 2
(shielded cable) for termination. See the Pamux User's Guide
for more details.
The PAMUX Systems SDK
is used to develop a control program for use with the B6.
NOTE: Older PCs with an ISA slot used the AC28 adapter card
and the AC28 and PCI-AC48 Adapter Card Toolkit
The B6 was designed for use with Standard (G1) analog I/O modules and the following Opto 22 I/O mounting racks: PB4AH
, and PB16AH
