Coming soon: PAC Project R9.5000, with many new features you've requested plus support for new I/O modules. Here's a sneak preview of what's inside.
Just a few of the highlights...
- Nested subroutines for developing modular control applications
- Direct configuration for E1 and E2 brain boards and their I/O, opening up easier migration and integration for legacy Optomux systems
- Breakpoints inside OptoScript blocks for better control strategy debugging
- More options to move modules and points and update rack-mounted controllers and brains
- Add tags in the Strategy Tree while the OptoScript editor is open
- Enhanced operator interface security with user groups as well as operator-level security
- Faster tag configuration
- Support for a browser window within PAC Display screens that can show a web page with streaming video or web apps (PAC Display Pro only)
- Color priorities for alarms and warnings
- Improved data exchange between a database table or file and a strategy table
- New OptoDataLink Monitor, a lightweight utility that shows you the status of OptoDataLink itself and your data links
- Redundant controller switching
PAC Project R9.5000 also supports these new I/O modules:
The SNAP-OMR6T-C mechanical power relay output module offers four isolated channels of switching for up to 250 VAC or 30 VDC, 6 amp loads—more current than any other SNAP output module. Each point can be normally open or normally closed; integrated transient suppression is included.
The SNAP-AIRTD-8U multi-function RTD/resistance analog temperature input module provides 8 points, each individually software configurable for a variety of behaviors. Commonly used for 3-wire RTD temperature inputs, the module is also suited to high-resolution resistance measurements.
Watch for the release of PAC Project R9.5000, coming soon.
Meanwhile, get ready for the update by making sure you have current archives of your PAC Control strategy and PAC Display project.
