Parker Hannifin Automation manager update
The Parker Automation Manager (PAM) 1.3 update expands Parker automation controller (PAC) features and functionality, allowing users to integrate complex robotics into their machine controller in a graphical environment. While the PAC is Parker’s machine controls solution that combines PLC, HMI and motion control functionality into a single device, PAM is the single integrated development environment (IDE) used to program it. PAM is standardized on the IEC 61131-3 programming language and PLCOpen motion control function blocks. This choice provides machine builders the ability to use traditional ladder diagram (LD) but also to take advantage of the latest control languages.
