F3-OMUX-1 and F3-OMUX-2
The F3-OMUX (-1, -2) CPU plugs into the first slot of a DL305 base. It acts as a serial interface to the control program in the host computer and up to 184 DL305 I/O per CPU. Multiple CPUs can be daisy-chained together to increase I/O count. The host computer must use an OPTOMUX serial communication driver. The host can execute a custom program or use a standard software package that supports OPTOMUX drivers such as Intouch-Wonderware, Iconics-Genesis, U.S. Data FactoryLink, Metra-Skyhawk Lt, etc.
- Two serial ports that support the OPTOMUX protocol F3-OMUX –1 RS232C/RS422/RS485 F3-OMUX-2 RS422/RS485 (isolated)
- Max of 184 I/O points per CPU (with expansion base unit)
- Scan time is dependent on the communication speed, number of commands sent, type of commands sent, the size of the response and the speed of the host computer.
