Programmable Automation Controllers (PACs) are multifunctional, multi-domain, modular controllers based on open standards and providing integrated development environment. Opto22 has been manufacturing PACs for many years. The latest models include the standalone SNAP PAC S-series and the rack mounted SNAO PAC R-series. Both handle a wide range of digital, analog, and serial functions and are equally suited to data collection, remote monitoring, process control and discrete and hybrid manufacturing.
SNAP PACs are based on open Ethernet and Internet Protocol (IP) standards, so you can build or extend a system without the expense and limitations of proprietary networks and protocols.
Opto 22’s PAC Project Software Suite provides full featured and cost effective control programming, HMI development and runtime, OPC server, and database connectivity software to power your SNAP PAC System.
These fully integrated software applications share a single tag name database, so the data points you configure in PAC Control are immediately available for use in PAC Display, OptoOPC Server, and Opto DataLink.
PAC Project Basic offers control and HMI tools for free. PAC Project Professional, available for separately, adds Opto OPCServer, Opto DataLink, options for Ethernet link redundancy or segmented networking, and support for legacy Opto 22 serial mistic I/O units.
