Product Data Sheets & Overviews1699 PAC Project Data Sheet
The PAC Project software suite is one of the four components of the SNAP PAC System. PAC Project comes in two forms: Basic and Professional.

PAC Project Basic is included free in your purchase of a SNAP PAC controller. It includes everything you need for most automation or monitoring applications: control programming, HMI development, and I/O configuration software.

PAC Project Professional is available for purchase as a suite or as individual software components. It includes everything in Basic and adds OPC communication, database connectivity, additional features, and support for legacy Opto 22 hardware.

Manuals1595 SNAP PAC R-Series Controllers User's Guide

This user's guide shows you how to install and use Opto 22's SNAP PAC R-series programmable automation controllers. SNAP PAC R-series controllers are on-the-rack industrial controllers. Each controller monitors and controls a wide range of devices and equipment wired to the I/O on its own rack and on distributed racks equipped with SNAP PAC EB-series brains. Alternatively, the R-series controller can be used as a slave to a larger, SNAP PAC S-series standalone industrial controller.

SNAP PAC controllers are programmed with PAC Control Basic or PAC Control Professional, Opto 22's flowchart-based development software, which is part of the PAC Project software suite.

Other Technical Documents2186 SNAP PAC REST API and the Internet of Things - for IT Professionals

We’ve all heard about the Internet of Things (IoT) and its promises: bringing useful data directly to people who make business decisions, and enabling machines to communicate with each other and make decisions for human benefit.

But how does the IoT actually work? How does the data get from inside these machines to computer networks where we can use it?

This technical paper describes that pathway for IT (information technology) professionals, explaining how physical "things" communicate, what kinds of data in them might be useful, and the current barriers to getting that data—especially from existing sensors and devices that have no IoT capabilities built in.

The paper also describes a new method to cut through those barriers and achieve the IoT results you want now.

Other Technical Documents2187 SNAP PAC REST API and the Internet of Things - for OT Professionals

We’ve all heard about the Internet of Things (IoT) and its promises: bringing useful data directly to people who make business decisions, and enabling machines to communicate with each other and make decisions for human benefit.

But how does the IoT actually work? How does the data get from inside these physical "things" to computer networks where it can be used?

This technical paper describes that pathway for OT (operational technology) professionals—automation professionals. It describes the kinds of data you may be asked to provide and why. It explains how data from physical "things"—especially existing sensors and actuators that have no IoT capabilities built in—can be securely communicated to company computer networks, without disturbing control networks.

The paper also explains concepts important to any IoT strategy, like encryption and authentication, and introduces a new method to achieve the IoT results you need now, without requiring a complex chain of conversion hardware and software.

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.
