Would you like to have hands-on instruction with PAC Project software (PAC Control, PAC Display, OptoOPCServer, OptoDataLink, and PAC Manager) and Opto 22 SNAP hardware? If you can't come to Temecula for free training, you can learn with our self-paced tutorials.
OptoTutorials provide step-by-step instructions for specific features of PAC Project software, such as PID loop control. These tutorials are designed to be used with a SNAP PAC Learning Center. This fully operational bench kit provides a complete, standalone system for learning how to use a SNAP PAC controller, I/O, and PAC Project software.
If you don't have a SNAP PAC Learning Center, you may still find OptoTutorials useful. They contain general information and in some cases sample files that can be helpful with any application using PAC Project software. Tutorials are listed below.
OptoTutorial 1641: PID with PAC Control
This supplement to the SNAP PAC Learning Center Tutorial
teaches you how to use proportional integral derivative (PID
) loops with PAC Control
software and a SNAP PAC R-series controller
. This zip file includes the complete tutorial, sample files, and documentation.
The tutorial is designed to be used with a SNAP-PACLC
learning center kit. If you don't have a Learning Center but are using PID with PAC Control, you will find conceptual information in the PDF document
to be useful.
SNAP PAC Learning Center Tutorial
The SNAP PAC Learning Center tutorial is a hands-on, learn-by-example training course developed for use with the SNAP-PACLC
Learning Center kit.
Each part of the tutorial introduces aspects of the SNAP hardware and the PAC Project
software suite. You'll learn to install and configure hardware, read and write to points
, develop a control application (called a strategy), and create an HMI (human-machine interface) to interact with the controller
This zip file includes the complete tutorial with sample files and documentation.
OptoTutorial 1642: File Management and FTP
OptoTutorial 1502: Using OptoGSM I/O
OptoTutorial 1450: FTP and File Management
This ZIP file contains the complete tutorial on using ioControl's FTP and file management features. This tutorial includes a PDF document and sample ioControl files and shows how to use the FTP and file management features of ioControl to create data files, read the data files from an FTP client, and then control points by uploading data to the SNAP Ultimate brain via FTP.
This is a hands-on tutorial for use with a SNAP Ultimate I/O Learning Center. If you have a SNAP PAC Learning Center, see File Management and FTP on SNAP PAC controllers instead.
