The Opto22 SNAP PAC System™ is an integrated system of hardware and software from Opto 22 for industrial control, remote monitoring, and data acquisition applications.
Designed to simplify the typically complex process of understanding, selecting, buying, and applying an automation system, the Opto 22 SNAP PAC System consists of four integrated components:
PAC Project™ Software Suite easy-to-use flowchart-based control programming, HMI (human-machine interface) development and runtime, and optional OPC server and database connectivity software
- SNAP PAC controllers—standalone or rack-mounted industrial controllers with networking options
- SNAP PAC brains—intelligent I/O processors for distributed control on Ethernet (wired and wireless) and serial networks
- SNAP I/O™—analog, digital, and serial I/O modules for connecting to field devices, machines, and sensors
These three simple but flexible components form a system capable of handling any remote monitoring application from basic equipment monitoring to complete factory automation.
SNAP PAC System Architecture
All components work together, no matter what the system’s size. When your system needs to expand, investments in development time and field wiring remain largely intact; you simply add more brains and I/O. If new capabilities are required, additional software and controllers can also be added with minimal time and expense.
