This document shows you how to use PAC Control, part of the PAC Project Software Suite, to develop control programs to run on groov EPIC processors and 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.

This document also contains helpful information about the groov EPIC and SNAP PAC Driver Module (a product of Cirrus Link Solutions®), included with Ignition Edge® in the GRV-EPIC-PR1 and the GROOV-AR1, and also distributed by Inductive Automation®.  Use this driver to:

  • Publish SNAP PAC System data via MQTT.
  • Use other Inductive Automation applications with SNAP PACs.
NOTE: If you are using older Opto 22 hardware in addition to groov EPIC, groov RIO modules, and SNAP PAC controllers and brains, use the Legacy Edition of this guide, form 1710, PAC Control Users Guide Legacy Edition.
