Other Technical Documents1725 PAC Project Demo Quick Start
The PAC Project Demo Quick Start pdf explains how to run the PAC Project Demo. The demo download includes the pdf as well as PAC Control, PAC Display, and SNAP PAC Sim, a software simulation of a SNAP PAC controller. The download also includes a pre-made control strategy, which will run on the PAC Sim, and several HMI projects you can explore.

Using the PAC Project Demo, you can demonstrate and experiment with Opto 22's control and HMI development software even before purchasing SNAP PAC hardware.

Manuals1700 PAC Control User's Guide
This document shows you how to use PAC Control, part of the PAC Project Software Suite, to develop control programs to run on SNAP PAC controllers. These programs, called strategies, contain the process logic that controls, monitors, and gathers data from your equipment and devices.

PAC Control strategies form the foundation for other PAC Project software, providing the single tagname database used for HMI creation in PAC Display, for OPC data elements in OptoOPCServer, and for data to be shared with databases in OptoDataLink.

Product Data Sheets & Overviews1990 OptoEMU Sensor DR (Demand Response) Data Sheet

The OptoEMU Sensor™ Energy Monitoring Unit with Demand Response (DR) monitors the electrical energy used in your facility and then signals electrical equipment to turn on or off in response to a request from an electric utility, demand response aggregator, or curtailment service provider (CSP).

To reduce peak energy use that triggers demand charges, electrical equipment loads can also be shed on predefined usage thresholds.

The OptoEMU Sensor DR makes it easy to reduce your energy costs by managing energy consumption, taking advantage of demand response programs, and gaining control over your energy pricing.

Manuals1796 Guide to Networking Opto 22 Products

Networking can be a complex subject. This guide tries to reduce the complexity by providing guidelines for how you might set up communications between your computer or mobile device and your SNAP PAC control system, including groov.

The goal is for you to be able to monitor and control your system from anywhere you need to, either inside your facility or outside it. It's possible to do this because Opto 22 control systems are built on standard protocols such as TCP and UDP over IP, which are the same protocols used by off-the-shelf computers, routers, and the Internet.

This guide shows you how to communicate with Opto 22’s SNAP PAC controllers and groov using wired Ethernet networks and wireless LANs, both within your facility and over the Internet.
