The ACR9600 Xpress programmable automation controller (PAC) builds upon the core motion engine to lets users develop code in IEC 61131-3 programming languages. Also included are industry standards for communicating with EtherNet/IP, networked servodrives via Ethernet Powerlink, and PLCopen function blocks. These features are managed from a single integrated software development environment.

The Xpress 9600 integrates with Xpress HMI and Parker motors. Interact Xpress HMI applications are developed, edited, published, and run in a browser-based environment so users and OEMs can easily publish upgrades and applications to any global location. This Web integration also simplifies implementation of remote diagnosis for support of machinery anywhere in the world.
