20.09.2022 Ι Emerson announced the release of its programmable automation controllers (PAC). This new family of compact PACs helps original equipment manufacturers successfully meet customer requirements by minimizing the need for specialized software engineering talent. The controllers will deliver large programmable logic controller capability in a small, cost-effective, IIoT-ready form factor.
Advantages of the new series
The series offers security-by-design, open programming and open communications built in to simplify connectivity to external analytics software platforms while reducing cost and complexity for manufacturers and end users.
“The CPE 200 series controllers take advantage of Emerson’s cybersecure-by-design architecture, common programming capabilities, and IIoT readiness to provide options currently missing in legacy compact PLCs”, says Jeff Householder, president of Emerson’s machine automation solutions business.
The controllers offer open communications through native, pre-licensed support for OPC UA Secure and other common industrial protocols for flexible connectivity over high-speed Gigabit Ethernet. IEC 61131 programming languages and C, the world’s most popular and easiest-to-use programming language, help engineers write and run the high-performance algorithms that enable proprietary production strategies and advanced automation technologies.
