PAC Machine Edition
A comprehensive tool for configuring control and HMI applications for PAC systems, PLCs and more.
Machine Edition from Emerson is a complete development tool for programming controls and installing HMI panels. A single set of tools covers all controls, ensuring that they use the same data. This means that the entire automation portfolio can be programmed, configured and maintained with the same tool, – on a single platform.
Open standards enable seamless integration between components, while predefined reusable modules make projects faster. The software comes with drag-and-drop features, ActiveX, dynamic help and standard diagnostic tools for better user-friendliness. Machine Edition significantly reduces programming and configuration time, so operators can solve manufacturing challenges faster.
Machine Edition comes with components with different functions
Machine Edition comes with four different components, View, Logic Developer PC, Logic Developer PLC and Motion Developer. All components have powerful features adapted for different controllers, and it is possible to configure PACSystems , VersaMAX , RSTi-EP and QuickPanel devices .
View – HMI / operator interface
View is an HMI tool specifically designed to meet the needs of a machine-level operator interface. The component contains a wide range of I / O drivers for PLCs and supports OPC servers and clients. In addition, remote connection and thin client support are offered for diagnostics and data monitoring. View includes support for QuickPanel, QuickPanel View (Windows CE-based) and Windows NT / 2000 / XP.
y combining Machine Edition View with QuickPanel, you can take advantage of the HMI functionality with PLC functionality in one solution. Read more about QuickPanel here.
