When we announce a new product, we want you—our loyal customers and OptoBlog readers—to be the first to hear about it.
And this isn't just one product. This is EPIC: the world's first Edge Programmable Industrial Control system—a brand-new I/O and control system built for the future of automation and designed for the way you work.

We've recently released new versions for key products:
As an applications engineer, sometimes known as OptoMary on our OptoForums, perhaps I shouldn’t have favorite customers. They’re all my favorites!
Sure, our products and people have helped build flashy Vegas shows, huge amusement parks, and various NASA endeavors that we may or may not be allowed to discuss in detail. We also have the less flashy water/wastewater installations and beloved "dam customers" that can be pretty Coulee, too.
In these Adventures of an Applications Engineer posts I'll share some of my favorite favorites.
We've just released PAC Project R9.6002, and you can get the updates here:
PAC Project Basic is free automation software for control programming and HMI, and is used with our SNAP PAC controllers.
Announcing the release of PAC Project R9.6000, with new features, enhancements, and bug fixes—available now.
Here's good news for system integrators, OEMs, and others who build PAC Control strategies for users who don't have PAC Control on their systems. PAC Control now provides a command-line interface (CLI)
In PAC Display Pro, we've improved response time for URL windows and URL controls by reducing the number of web page reloads they use.
Three new updates have recently been released:
A proportional integral derivative (PID) control loop monitors an input or process variable, compares the variable’s current value to a desired value (a setpoint), and calculates an output to keep the value very close to the setpoint.
Last OptoNews you heard about all the new features in PAC Project 9.5 and SNAP PAC firmware 9.5, both just released.
The most exciting new features are the HTTP/HTTPS server and RESTful API, giving you secure access to I/O point and variable data in your PAC controller.
These developer- and IoT-ready features are free—all you need to do is update your firmware.
But updating PAC controller firmware on a running system can pose a problem.
