Programmable Automation Controller

Programmable Automation Controller or PAC a relatively new name coined for small, local control systems. The name is derived largely from the popular PLC or Programmable Logic Controller. The core for next-generation automation environment. To succeed in highly competitive markets, it’s important to build automation systems that ensure high productivity and consistent product quality. MELSEC iQ-R is taking a three-point approach to solving these problems: Reducing TCO, increasing Reliability and Reuse of existing assets.

Common programming, debugging and operating software for the Modicon Premium, Atrium and Quantum PLC ranges.

A Programmable Logic Controller, PLC, or programmable controller is a digital computer used for automation of typically industrial electromechanical processes, such as control of machinery on factory assembly lines, amusement rides, or light fixtures. PLCs are used in many machines, in many industries.
