Industrial automation manufacturer Opto 22, Temecula, Calif., released Opto aPAC, an application for monitoring and managing a company's SNAP PAC system using mobile devices via an Android operating system.

Opto aPAC provides real-time control system access and information to authorized automation professionals equipped with wireless, Android-based smart phones or tablets. Control engineers, maintenance personnel, instrumentation technicians and panel builders can use Opto aPAC to discover SNAP PAC controllers and I/O systems and then view, debug and fine-tune them.

Authorized Opto aPAC users can monitor values in a SNAP PAC control system such as temperatures, pressures, machine status, voltage and PIDs. Opto aPAC users can also perform control functions such as changing set-points, turning lighting on and off and controlling motors.
