The SNAP PAC System meets a wide variety of needs in industrial control, remote monitoring, and data acquisition because it is modular and flexible.
ModularSNAP PAC System grows with you
For a simple system, a rack-mounted programmable automation controller (PAC) is all you need. The PAC mounts on a rack with analog, digital, and serial modules and provides industrial control, I/O processing, and network communications.
As you grow, it's easy to add more racks of industrial I/O with I/O processors (we call them brains). The rack-mounted PAC controls these other I/O units as well.
For a large manufacturing application, a standalone programmable automation controller provides more power to control numerous I/O units. All I/O units, whether the I/O is processed by brains or rack-mounted PACs, provide distributed control to reduce the network load.
Since the software, controllers, brains, and I/O all work together, you can expand your system without losing your investments in development time, hardware, and field wiring.
FlexibleSNAP PAC System handles control, monitoring, and SCADA tasks
A single SNAP PAC programmable automation controller handles multiple functions: discrete manufacturing (sequential control), process control (batch and continuous), motion control, remote monitoring, and data acquisition.
Open standards link disparate systems. SNAP PAC controllers use standard network interfaces (including 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, RS-232/RS-485/422 serial, and 802.11a, b, and g wireless) and standard protocols (such as TCP/IP, UDP/IP, Modbus, Modbus/TCP, and EtherNet/IP). Other industrial control, remote monitoring, and data acquisition systems are easily integrated.
