Text panels allow basic operator interfacing with control systems. The simple message displays, panel lamps, and/or programmable function keys provided by these panels support limited operator monitoring/control. Not recommended for new installations, the OptiMate 9001 communications master allows up to 31 OptiMate panels to be connected to a single CPU.
Note: The Optimate product line is being discontinued. As of January 2018, individual parts will be obsoleted as stock is depleted.
The OP-9001 is a communication master unit for connecting two or more (up to 31) OptiMate panels to a single
CPU communications port.
It connects to any DirectLOGIC, Allen-Bradley 5/03, 5/04, GE Series 90/30, GE Series 90 Micro, or Modicon (MODBUS) CPU.
A typical configuration might be a multi-drop arrangement using an OP-9001 connected to four OptiMate Panels.
The OP-9001 would be surface-mounted to the cabinet. The OP-9001 provides ample space to route
cables and allow for proper clearance.
All the panels would be configured using OP-WINEDIT software.
NOTE: The OP-9001 cannot be used with the OP-400 series panels.
