Programmable Automation Controllers
Programmable Automation Controllers (PAC) enable systems to provide higher-level, complicated instructions to various automated equipment. These types of controllers are well-suited for a variety of industrial and infrastructure sectors and applications. PACs often have more connectivity options and a wider capability of controlling systems than most PLC systems. PACs have five main elements: one multi-discipline development platform, enterprise network compatibility, adaptable software tools that improve process flow, multi-domain functionality and a modular open architecture.
PACs are also used for controlling and monitoring complex industrial processes, such as manufacturing, energy, and transportation. PACs offer more flexibility, scalability, and performance than PLCs, as they can run multiple programs and support various communication protocols. PACs also have more memory and processing power than PLCs, which enables them to handle large amounts of data and complex algorithms.
Applications of PACs include the following:
- Vision systems (signal processing and data logging)
- Process control
- Motion systems
- Logic systems
