Opto 22 manufactures controllers, I/O, solid-state relays, and software products that link electrical, mechanical, and electronic devices to networks and computers. Customers use these products to monitor, control, and get data from all the machines and devices that are essential to their business.
Opto 22's business philosophy is different from others in the automation industry in some important ways.
Reliability. Opto 22 products have been famous for their quality and reliability for over 35 years. The company's products are manufactured at their headquarters in Temecula, California, U.S.A. Each hardware item is individually tested twice before it's shipped to you.
Because of this quality control, most I/O and SSRs are guaranteed for life.
Open standards. Opto 22 products are designed to run on non-proprietary communication standards like Ethernet and the Internet Protocol (IP). Open standards like these simplify development, decrease costs, and open up data for use where you need it.
Open standards have been the company's foundation from the first. In 1978 they developed the red-black-yellow-white I/O module color-coding scheme, still the industry standard today. In 1998 they introduced the first commercial Ethernet-based I/O unit.
Personal service. Opto 22 was founded by engineers and is still privately held and run by engineers. They understand what you do and strive to make your job easier.
