Programmable Automation Controller has Embedded Virtual HMI

Jan. 1, 2016
The IoTPAC from SoftPLC combines HMI, control, logging, alarming and more.

Combining the power of the company's open architecture PACs with an embedded Linux version of their Web Studio SCADA software (IoTView), the unit provides a robust automation solution suitable for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0. The unit reduces equipment and maintenance cost, energy use, and control panel size over traditional PLC + HMI control systems or combined PLC/HMI products. Any of the company's PACs can become an IoTPAC with the addition of the embedded IoTView software. A memory based driver allows the virtual HMI to read/write to the PAC data table. Any PC, tablet, or smart phone can be used as the operator interface, whether connected by hard-wire, wirelessly, or over the internet. The unit provides programmable logic control for I/O devices from many vendors; data and event logging, locally, over a network or to a cloud database; alarming via text message/email; HTML5 virtual HMI, making it possible to monitor/control the PAC and connected devices via any web browser, to read/write to remote databases or to a cloud-based TagWell platform. The unit provides communication to PLCs, drives and PCs via Ethernet, serial and industrial networks, and features a embedded firewall/VPN for security
