Programmable automation controllers (PACs) meet the complex demands of modern industrial automation applications because they combine features of more traditional automation technologies: programmable logic controllers (PLCs), distributed control systems (DCSs), remote terminal units (RTUs), and personal computers (PCs).

If you’re looking at PACs for your monitoring, automation, and data acquisition applications, you may be wondering how PACs are programmed. This white paper explores some of the most important features of software for PACs. According to the ARC Advisory Group, generally credited with coining the term.
