NOTE: This product is obsolete and no longer available. For new designs, you can use the SNAP-PAC-R1-B rack-mounted controller, which mounts on a B-series rack so you can keep your existing rack. The R1-B is substantially more powerful, can act as a controller as well as an I/O processor, and can communicate over a modem using PPP.
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.
NOTE: Not all SNAP I/O modules are compatible with this brain. See Legacy and Current Product Comparison and Compatibility Charts
to determine compatibility.
