PAC Features Multiple Ports

Oct. 3, 2007
The SNAP-PAC-S2 is a standalone, multi–serial port, dual-Ethernet interface programmable automation controller (PAC) and the newest addition to the vendor’s flagship SNAP PAC System product line.
The industrially hardened, compact SNAP-PAC-S2 boasts four serial ports, each of which is fully configurable for either RS-232 or RS-485/422 serial communication, making it well-suited for connecting to machines, devices, instrumentation, and equipment with serial interfaces—such as weigh scales, vibration monitors, RFID and barcode readers, display terminals and printers—where communication can take place via serial Modbus or ASCII strings. RS-232 Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) modem connections are also supported. In addition to its four configurable serial ports, the SNAP-PAC-S2 also features two 10/100Mbps Ethernet interfaces for host and I/O communication over Ethernet networks. These two independent interfaces can alternatively be used to create dual Ethernet networks for segmenting I/O and host traffic, or to create redundant Ethernet links for critical applications.
