PLCs and PACs Simplify Data Acquisition

Download Now


In today's competitive market, companies need detailed and timely information about process variables, and production amounts, as well as alarms in real time. In the past, PLCs did not have the capabilities to provide such information, and PACs were not yet widely available.

Fortunately, newer PLCs and PACs can perform many data acquisition tasks within the controller, giving businesses a low cost, easier method for advanced, real-time data collection as compared to proprietary or stand-alone data acquisition systems.

This white paper discusses how businesses benefit from the in-depth information that new PLCs and PACs can provide on processes, machines and manufacturing operations.
