Project Automation Software

Version 9.5 of PAC Project from Opto 22 includes IIoT integration through a RESTful API to controller tags and I/O.

The most significant addition in this version is new firmware for the company’s programmable automation controllers (PACs) that includes an HTTP/S server with a RESTful API, providing developers with secure, programmatic access to control variables and I/O data using any programming language that supports JavaScript Object Notation (JSON). This new capability closes the IT/OT gap, allows for rapid Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) application development, provides for secure data exchange using open Internet standards, and reduces time to market in machine and system design. The addition of a secure RESTful server and an open, documented API to a PAC is significant because REST architecture and associated technology are intrinsic to the Internet of Things and paramount to web and mobile-based application development. Other features in this new version include new tools to develop modular control applications with nested subroutines, new debugging tools to reduce development time, support for a worldwide installed base of legacy Optomux I/O systems, and integration of third-party systems and protocols with the IIoT. To provide enhanced security and auditing for HMI access, the software now offers sophisticated user groups and data rights, as well as the ability to embed video directly into HMI windows.
