I’m new to the Opto SNAP system and automation control in general. As I become more familiar with the SNAP system and my machine in which I’m adding the SNAP system my imagination is taking off with all the sensors I can add and control I can support. This led me to look at the higher channel density modules and I was surprised (disappointed) to see the 16 and 32 channel modules require a cable.
It’s not so much the cost (although it’s expensive) as the awkward nature of an intermediate adapter cable. Now I can’t simply route a wire to a screw terminal but instead I need to have a terminal block and make the connection there.
Have any of you found an alternate method to hook up to the high density modules? Is the female connector a standard connector that can be purchased?
If you use the 16 or 32 channel modules would you be willing to post a photo of your installation? Hopefully images of a clean install will encourage me and reduce the buzzkill I have right now.
