The PAC Terminal (PT) is a thin client HMI which significantly reduces the overall system costs when compared to a traditional HMI—especially if it is desired for multiple PTs to connect to a single PAC. Developed to work seamlessly with the Parker Automation Controller (PAC), the PAC handling the control and HMI logic, the PT is responsible for displaying the embedded HMI as well as sending touch screen input from the user back to the PAC.
About the Parker PAC and PAC Terminal all-in-one Machine Control Solution
The PAC is Parker’s all-in-one machine controls solution that combines PLC, HMI, and motion control functionality into a single device. Likewise, the PAC is programmed using a single integrated development environment (IDE) called Parker Automation Manager (PAM).
Control engineers have two options when developing their HMI in PAM: either using WebVisu, a European-style visualization platform that is designed to easily integrate with the IEC 61131-3 programming language, or Parker’s incredibly popular and easy-to-use HMI, embedded Xpress. Both WebVisu and embedded Xpress provide remote capabilities by taking advantage of web publishing technology. Any remote client such as a browser, or mobile device using Parker’s Remote Manager (RemoteMgr) App can connect to the embedded HMI simply by entering in the PAC’s IP address and target application. This means that an unlimited number of devices can connect to the PAC including multiple PT units.
The ability to provide a single solution and programming environment for PLC logic, HMI local and Remote visualization, as well as motion control makes the PAC an all-in-one machine controller capable of solving the most difficult applications with ease and reduced time to market.
