CODESYS vs PAC Control

Posted by Josh Eastburn on Aug 25, 2021 1:47:24 PM

Which is right for you?

In this series, I’ve been talking about the strengths of CODESYS for control programming on the groov EPIC platform, but it’s not your only option. You can use CODESYS, Opto 22’s flowchart-based PAC Control, or custom applications built using secure shell access (SSH). Whether you’re a CODESYS developer building projects on groov EPIC or still deciding which programming approach to take, it’s worth understanding how and when each tool might be right for you. This post compares CODESYS and PAC Control head to head to help you decide which approach to take for your project.
