NOTE:This is a legacy product and is not recommended for new development. For new development, use PAC Control, part of the PAC Project software suite and designed for SNAP PAC controllers. If you do not need Ethernet link redundancy, segmented networking, support for legacy FactoryFloor I/O units, or the ability to import OptoControl strategies, see PAC Control Basic.

ioControl Professional is a legacy flowchart-based programming language for building control, monitoring, and data acquisition applications. Available separately or as part of the ioProject Professional software suite, ioControl also builds the underlying database for ioDisplay human-machine interfaces and OptoOPCServer.

This product includes software and documentation in Adobe Acrobat PDF format on a CD. It also includes complete printed documentation.

All ioProject software, both Basic and Professional, is in one single download. You can install the Basic version right away to get started. To install ioControl Professional, first purchase the software and contact Opto 22 to confirm your purchase and receive your password. More about purchasing software and getting a password.

When you have your password, run the installation again. Choose ioProject Professional and enter your password for ioControl Professional. The following applications will be installed. (If you do not want to install them all, uncheck the ones you do not want.)

  • ioControl Professional
  • ioDisplay Basic
  • ioManager
  • ioUtilities

New (7.1) firmware is strongly recommended for all hardware that will be used with ioProject 7.1 software applications.
