Hot Tips from Product Support: PAC Terminal Software

Opto 22's Product Support Group (PSG) develops some helpful tips as they work with customers who contact them for free product support. Here are a few tips from our PSG engineers.

PAC Terminal, a utility program in the PAC Project software suite, offers a couple of features that can be very useful, especially for OEMs and system integrators.

Completing tasks automatically

In addition to having the usual graphical interface, PAC Terminal also supports command line usage. That means you can create a DOS batch file to complete tasks automatically for the end users of your strategy.

To see a list of tasks you might want to do within PAC Terminal, open a command prompt window in the folder where PAC Terminal is installed, and then type iotoerm /help. (Note that the executable file is named ioterm.exe and not PAC Terminal.exe.)

For more on using the command line, see the section on Using a DOS Batch File in form #1700, the PAC Control User's Guide.

Minimizing strategy copying

Many customers who provide strategies to end users ask if there is a way to minimize the possibility of their proprietary strategy logic being copied.

You can help prevent copying by using PAC Control to compile a Controller Download File (.cdf). Once you have the cdf file, you can download it to the controller using the PAC Terminal command line, as discussed above.

For instructions to compile a CDF, see the section "Downloading without using PAC Control" in Chapter 7 of the PAC Control User's Guide.
