Opto 22’s SNAP PAC System combines PAC Project software, SNAP PAC controllers, SNAP PAC brains, and SNAP I/O into an integrated, easy-to-use system that simplifies the complex process of solving automation, monitoring, and data acquisition problems. The new offerings focus on consolidating hardware to save space and ease the purchase process by providing fewer, more powerful models.
New Switched Dual Ethernet SNAP I/O Brains are an integral part of the system. They perform the same functions as seven previously offered Opto 22 brains and add new features, making it easer to choose the right processor. Additionally, five higher- density modules consolidate several I/O points where panel space is restricted.
The SNAP PAC Racks let users mix any combination of modules on a single rack. Standard mounting rack architecture reduces choices from fifteen to four, eliminating compatibility and configuration issues.
By combining motion control with process control, sequential logic, string and data handling, math, and networking in a single system, the SNAP Motion Control Subsystem helps complete the multi-domain operability of the SNAP PAC System.
The SNAP PAC Sim executes system control, monitoring, and data acquisition strategies without hardware. Engineers can download the software from Opto 22’s website free of charge and begin their application development in a virtual environment.
New software links the System with enterprise databases without the cost and complexity of an HMI as middleware. It is ideal for users who need to simply and quickly exchange data among desktop or enterprise applications control, data acquisition, and monitoring using standard methods and file types. What’s more, since the software is part of the PAC Project and integrated into the System, it is easy to use.
PAC Project is a new automation software suite that makes developing applications for industrial automation, control, data acquisition, and remote monitoring easier. Because PAC Project is specifically designed for use with Opto 22’s SNAP PAC System, configuration, development, troubleshooting, and maintenance are simpler. It comes in basic and professional versions.
