The PACSystems RSTi-EP CPE 200 programmable automation controllers helps OEMs meet customer requirements by minimizing the need for specialized software engineering talent. CPE 200 controllers will deliver large programmable logic controller (PLC) capability in a small, cost-effective, IIoT-ready form factor so machine manufacturers do not need to sacrifice performance for price.
As OEMs develop innovative solutions for material handling, life sciences and more, they can struggle to program and deliver machine control systems on time and within budget with the performance, security and flexible connectivity customers require. The CPE 200 series solves these problems with security-by-design, open programming and open communications built in to simplify connectivity to external analytics software platforms while reducing cost and complexity for OEMs and end-users.
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.
