The companies will deliver remote monitoring and data acquisition solutions to customers leveraging connections from Opto 22 SNAP PACs to M2M Data’s iSCADA web-based monitoring and data management portal.

Opto 22 VP Bob Sheffres said, ‘We provide interfaces to virtually any mechanical, electrical or electronic asset. This alliance with M2M will extend our SNAP PAC systems into the iSCADA market, offering customers an integrated hardware, communications and software solution.’ Opto 22 was founded in 1974 and today claims over 85 million Opto 22-connected devices worldwide.
