The SNAP-PAC-EB2 brain is an I/O and communications processor for your control system. Designed primarily to work in distributed systems controlled by a SNAP PAC S-series or R-series controller, the SNAP-PAC-EB2 can also be used as intelligent remote I/O with Allen-Bradley industrial PLC systems. The SNAP-PAC-EB2 provides local intelligence that frees the controller (PAC or PLC) for supervisory tasks. As an I/O processor, the SNAP PAC brain independently handles functions such as latching, counting, thermocouple linearization, watchdog timers, and PID loop control. These functions continue to work on the brain even if communication with the controller is lost. The SNAP-PAC-EB2 brain supports SNAP I/O analog, digital, and serial input and output modules. These modules can all be mixed on the same mounting rack and placed in any position on the rack. The brain and modules mount on a SNAP PAC rack, which holds up to 4, 8, 12, or 16 modules. The SNAP-PAC-EB2 brain supports communication using multiple protocols running simultaneously over Ethernet. You can communicate using other methods, including EtherNet/IP, Modbus/TCP, SNMP, SMTP, FTP, and OptoMMP.
