Opto 22's SNAP-SCM-CAN2B Module adds CAN connectivity to PAC systems
Opto 22's SNAP-SCM-CAN2B serial communication module acquires data from generators, motors, sensors, actuators and other industrial devices connected to a controller area network (CAN). With the SNAP-SCM-CAN2B module, industrial engineers can incorporate data from CAN devices into their control application just like the analog, digital, and serial I/O signals received from other SNAP I/O modules installed on the I/O rack.
The SNAP-SCM-CAN2B module is used with Opto 22's SNAP PAC System, which includes programmable automation controllers (PACs) and Ethernet-based I/O systems, which are used with PACs as well as with PC-based control applications. The SNAP-SCM-CAN2B has one input for receiving data from devices on a CAN network; this module does not transmit. The SNAP-SCM-CAN2B is optically isolated from the equipment and devices it connects to, as well as from other modules on a shared I/O rack.
