Schneider Electric Programmable Automation Controller (PacDrive) 3

The complete automation solution for OEM Machines

PacDrive 3 is based upon proven logic motion technology, which unifiesPLC, motion, and robotics control functionality on a single hardware platform. With its centralized system architecture, PacDrive is the ideal solution for controlling a broad range of servo-driven production and packaging machines, as well as material handling equipment and robotics, using fully integrated, IEC 61131-3-compliant program structures. PacDrive 3 is the new generation based on the proven PacDrive M system. More than 50.000 machines worldwide are controlled by PacDrive M.
