A control system must work together with the existing infrastructure and also be able to be scaled according to the company’s needs. PACSystems from Emerson is a complete PAC system (programmable automatic control units) and comes with a wide range of industrial automation and control solutions. With modular and scalable open architecture and simple system integration, PACSystems can be adapted to your company’s unique needs. 

PACSystems provides precise control options and better connectivity options in all types of industrial environments. You get the insight and control you need to reduce downtime and increase productivity. 

Scalable control system “on the edge”

Monitor, manage and adjust production with powerful edge technology. Emerson’s PACSystems handles demanding industrial applications with open, scalable and interoperable control solutions. This approach optimises system control and enables analysis and machine learning “on the edge”. This means that industrial processes can be improved and the overall performance can be increased, – without sacrificing driving time, safety or connection.


From small, compact applications to large, redundant systems: PACSystems comes with a wide range of controllers and I / O combined with powerful software and a user-friendly operator interface. The system communicates seamlessly with devices and systems that use OPC-UA.

Machine Edition


PACSystems comes with secure, integrated control software. Program and configure PACSystems devices using built-in tools, open standards, and a fully integrated development environment. Use version control and verify communication with a standard set of configuration tools. Access to the software is secured with encrypted passwords and authorized access.


PACSystems delivers industry-leading, award-winning industrial controllers that handle a wide range of application requirements. The controls use PROFINET for better performance and productivity and are compatible with most industry standards. With 24 to 32,000 I / O points, the controls are highly scalable. The system has a redundant and secure design. Emerson uses secure-by-design in its PACSystems controllers, including the Trusted Platform Module and Secure Boot.


PACSystems controllers are designed to deliver maximum performance in harsh industrial environments and have a fanless design, are shock and vibration proof and have a protective coating as a barrier against pollution, moisture and corrosion. The controls can withstand temperatures from -40 to 70 degrees. You can choose from a wide range of control units in different sizes.
