PAC Control, part of the PAC Project Software Suite, is an intuitive, flowchart-based tool for programming industrial automation, process control, building automation, remote monitoring, data acquisition, and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications.

Using PAC Control, you create and debug control programs and then download and run them on a groov EPIC edge programmable industrial controller or on a SNAP PAC industrial controller. In addition to industrial control, groov EPIC, SNAP PAC R-series, and SNAP PAC S-series controllers are developer and IIoT ready with a built-in HTTP/HTTPS server and a RESTful API.

This product includes software and documentation in Adobe Acrobat PDF format as a download. The download file includes other PAC Project software in addition to PAC Control. 

You can purchase PAC Control Professional as an individual application or as part of the PAC Project Professional Software Suite, which also includes software for HMI development, OPC communication, and database connectivity.

To find out if you can upgrade to this version for free, see the Opto 22 Software Upgrade Policy

If you are using older (not groov EPIC, groov RIO, or SNAP PAC) controllers or brains with PAC Project, see the SNAP PAC System Migration Technical Note (form 1688) for important information.
