Increasing Productivity With Programmable Automation Controllers Introduction As OEMs and end users face the complexities involved in integrating today’s modern production environments and the escalating pressure to increase productivity, the power of their control systems can be a competitive differentiator. Control systems today must interface with much more than simple signals from sensors and actuators; they must have network connectivity, device interoperability, and seamless integration with enterprise data. These demands for control system capabilities have pushed beyond the scope of...

An open architecture enables portability to move between processor technologies and flexibility to connect seamlessly with third-party applications, protecting investments in both I/O and applications development. It also provides an easy migration path to upgrade and embrace new technologies, instead of being “locked in” to one type of processor technology, which is a limitation for some PACs. In high-speed applications such as material handling, packaging, and assembly—where multiple controllers are networked and there is a need to transfer huge amounts of data, operate in high noise...

Increasing Productivity With Programmable Automation Controllers Lower total cost of ownership adds to bottom line As discussed earlier in the paper on the advantage of standards-based platforms and openness, the migration from a PLC to a PAC should be smooth and effortless with both applications and I/O being easily brought forward to the new platform; it saves significant costs as the majority of a control system’s investment is in the I/O and the application. For example, PACSystems has a serial bus that allows all legacy I/O to be migrated forward seamlessly, and this ease of transition...
