PAC Display Professional, part of the PAC Project Professional Software Suite, is a user-friendly HMI package for building operator interface applications to communicate with groov EPIC systems, SNAP PAC systems, and Ethernet-based I/O units (including groov RIO, SNAP PAC, and legacy SNAP I/O units). Technicians and operators can monitor the system, respond to alarms, and interact as necessary using a graphical display.
PAC Display Professional is available as a separate application or as part of the PAC Project Professional Software Suite, which also includes software for control programming, OPC communication, and database connectivity. Complete documentation is included in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. The download file includes other PAC Project software in addition to PAC Display.
The price for PAC Display Professional is for one seat. If you are using multiple seats of PAC Display, we strongly recommend that you also purchase OptoOPCServer (included in PAC Project Pro). OptoOPCServer manages all communication with the controller and reduces traffic on the control network.
To find out if you can upgrade to this version for free, see the Opto 22 Software Upgrade Policy.
