PAC Parker Automation Controller

Powerful, integrated, and designed for the global machine market, the EtherCAT based Parker Automation Controller (PAC) combines machine logic, signal handling and high-speed motion control into a standard based, performance driven, fan-less and easily mountable din rail solution. This programmable automation controller comes equipped with a native, uninterrupted EtherCAT bus for high-speed I/O and motion control, a modular interface slot for 3rd Party device communication, standard Ethernet and USB ports plus onboard SD program storage. Programmed with the Parker Automation Manager software, OEMs can produce efficient, high-performance control systems based on the IEC 61131-3 and PLCopen Motion standards.

The motion controller's solid state design is precisely engineered for demanding industrial environments. The powerful, yet energy efficient Intel Atom N2600 processor allows for fanless operation while supporting dual-cores, 64-bit instructions, and Hyperthreading technology. Coupled with the removable, solid state SD storage media, all moving parts have been eliminated for a robust, industrial grade control solution.
