The SNAP-PAC-R2-W offers all the same functionality as a SNAP-PAC-R2, and it adds wireless LAN communication capability as well. This rack-mounted programmable automation controller provides control, communication, and I/O processing in a compact package. One of four components of the SNAP PAC System, the SNAP-PAC-R2-W is fully integrated with PAC Project software, SNAP PAC brains, and SNAP I/O modules. Used with the included PAC Project Basic software suite (or PAC Project Professional, purchased separately), the Ethernet-based SNAP-PAC-R2-W can handle almost all your industrial control, remote monitoring, and data acquisition needs. This intelligent, flexible PAC can be used in several ways. The SNAP-PAC-R2-W can provide complete cell control on its own rack with I/O modules. It can also control SNAP PAC I/O units at the same time for a larger system. Or the R1 can be used in a more extensive distributed control system as an I/O unit controlled by a SNAP PAC S-series standalone controller. It can even be used as intelligent remote I/O for Allen-Bradley PLC systems, such as ControlLogix and MicroLogix. The SNAP-PAC-R2-W includes a wireless LAN interface that supports 802.11a, b, and g network standards. The controller can be used in infrastructure or ad-hoc mode. For security, 802.11i standards are supported, including WPA2-AES as well as WPA and WEP for backwards compatibility. In addition, the controller has an RS-232 serial port with hardware handshaking, which can be used for PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) communication over a modem or for direct connection to serial devices. The controller mounts on a SNAP PAC mounting rack with up to 4, 8, 12, or 16 digital, analog, and serial SNAP I/O modules. Choose the modules needed for your application from the extensive line of SNAP I/O modules.
