Creating and Configuring a Strategy

Creating and Configuring a Strategy

Use PAC Control to create, download, and debug control strategies for groov EPIC and SNAP PAC controllers.

About this course

If you can draw some flowcharts to describe your control application, you can create and configure a strategy using PAC Control. In this course, you’ll learn how to build a strategy and debug it.

Topics include:

  • Building strategies: Learn about the PAC Control main window, Configure, Debug and Online modes and how to create and save a strategy.
  • Adding a control engine: Learn how to add and configure a control engine in PAC Control, and how to test the communications to the control engine.
  • Quiz 1 (to test your knowledge)
  • Adding I/O: Learn how to configure an I/O unit, including adding I/O modules, configuring analog and digital input and output points.
  • Using Debug mode: Learn how to inspect, change the status, or set the internal values (IVALs) or external values (XVALs) in Debug mode.
  • Quiz 2 (to test your knowledge)

Course Duration:  ~30 min
