DPAC-1000 Distributed Programmable Automation Controller (DPAC) is designed for remote data acquisition systems with standard serial communication ports (RS232 or RS485). It offers a distributed control solution for digital and analog I/O and motion control, while enabling a 15 to 20 percent cabling reduction compared to other PLCs and PACs. The system collects data from digital sensors such as discrete I/O modules, pressure sensors and temperature sensors and analog I/O modules up to 4000 ft. away. The controller is rated for use in high-shock settings of up to 100 G.
