GE Fanuc announces PACSystems

GE Fanuc Automation has introduced its new PACSystems family of controllers.


GE Fanuc Automation has introduced its new PACSystems family of controllers. PACSystems control engine is built on standard embedded architecture using commercial, deterministic operating systems, making the engine portable to multiple platforms and allowing users to choose the hardware and programming language that best suits each application. The system supports distributed I/O through such standards-based communications as Ethernet, Profibus, DeviceNet, and Genius networks. GE Fanuc’s CIMPLICITY Machine Edition software provides the universal engineering development environment for programming, configuration and diagnostics.

With tag-based programming, a library of reusable code and a test edit mode for previewing applications, CIMPLICITY Machine Edition provides a familiar graphical user-development environment. The high performance RX7i is the first PACSystems platform to be released—scheduled for second quarter 2003. Offering four times the speed of existing PLC backplanes and up to 10 MB of memory usable for programming and documentation storage, the PACSystems RX7i is VME64 based, supports all standard VME modules including Series 90-70 I/O, and incorporates industry-leading technology from VMIC. Additional PACSystem platform releases are scheduled throughout 2003.
