PAC Project Basic vs. Pro demoWhat do you get with the free PAC Project Basic automation software suite? 

PAC Project Basic offers flowchart-based control programming plus HMI development and runtime. It's suited for industrial automation, remote monitoring, and data acquisition applications in any field.

PAC Project software is fully integrated with SNAP PAC controllers, brains, and I/O.

So will the Basic version do everything you need? In most cases it will. But for some applications you'll want to purchase PAC Project Professional with its extra capabilities.

This interactive demo answers your questions about PAC Project and compares the two suites. Just click and explore to find out:

  • Which components (like PAC Control or OptoDataLink) are included with each version
  • How PAC Project works with your SNAP PAC programmable automation controller and I/O units
  • How devices and databases on your network interact with PAC Project
