The A2 PAC device series combine the advantages of a PC-based controller with the typical characteristics of a PLC and motion controller.
Powerful Intel® Atom™ Multi-Core and Core™-i CPUs allow the realization of the most demanding control and visualization applications.

The A2 PAC base units have a wide range of communication interfaces and a Mini-PCI express slot for easy integration of additional functions like WLAN, 3G modems and further fieldbusses.

A2 PAC base units are programmed with CODESYS in the common IEC 61131-3 languages. This proven engineering tool is also used to create visualizations.
The integrated OPC-UA server allows ERP, MES and SCADA systems the access to application data and serves as an interface for M2M communication.
