Schneider makes it easy to implement OMAC PackML

Schneider Electric has made it significantly easier for customers and machine builders to realize the benefits of the OMAC PackML standard without having to replace existing control and automation infrastructure.

"OMAC PackML simplifies interconnection across packaging systems and enterprise applications, but it requires processing power beyond the capacity of many PLCs that are already installed on production lines," says Norm Thorlakson, vice president of Schneider Electric's HMI and supervisory software business. "But that doesn't mean customers need to replace their controllers.

"Since no two machines or applications are exactly the same, our Wonderware OMAC PackML demo template can be integrated with any controller and run on any computer. Offering this new capability removes the need to build in supervisory PackML features, change existing PLC code or replace PLCs and other controllers. It's a game-changing approach that represents our ongoing investment and commitment to a core industry offering."

Based on its Wonderware InTouch Machine Edition human machine interface and Wonderware Historian software offerings, the Wonderware OMAC PackML demo template includes the PackML State Model, Control Modes and PackTags, providing a well-defined pattern for describing machine conditions and sharing the information with users and other systems. It simplifies machine-to-machine communication, more tightly integrating packaging systems with production line systems.
