OptoNews: New face for SNAP I/O modules

Posted by Jean Femia on Sep 14, 2016 4:07:11 PM

When you buy a new SNAP I/O module today, you may find that the printing on it looks a little different from ones you already have.

Don't be concerned; there's no difference in how the module functions.

  • It's still the same reliable analog, digital, or serial module, still individually tested twice.
  • It still comes with free Product Support from our experienced engineers in Temecula, California.
  • And it's still ready to keep on working for years and years.

We've just made room for additional agency approval markings and have standardized the pad print for all SNAP I/O.

  • Part number
  • Module type and signal
  • Agency approval icons
  • "Don't put it in the trash" reminder
  • Made in the U.S.A.

See image at right for an example. 

On the back you'll find:

  • A handy wiring diagram, as before
  • Additional details on agency approvals
  • Warranty information
  • Opto 22 address and website

The back looks something like this:

So don't be surprised when you see that your new module looks a little different. It's still the same reliable Opto 22 I/O.

Let us know what you think of the changes. And thanks for buying SNAP I/O!
