Chameleon Programmable Automation Controllers (PAC)
Rugged, Durable, and Reliable Controllers for Mission-Critical Applications
SEPTA Approved for Silverliner IV
Ideal solution for door controls and
Reduces installation cost, size, and weight by eliminating need for costly, bulky, and heavy enclosures
Chameleon PACs represent high-performance distributed and logic control to survive control to the field, enabling
a new breed of environmentally hardened, modular, controllers designed to enable sophisticated process
in harsh environments. It promotes significant savings in field wiring and
the migration of installation cost.
Distribution of control increases control availability by reducing system failure often associated with central control systems.
Chameleon PACs are currently installed in a variety of transit, industrial, and military settings. Customers include transit agencies such as the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority (SEPTA), Fortune 500 manufacturers such as E.I. DuPont and Lockheed Martin, and the U.S. Department of Defense.
OPEN COMMUNICATION / NETWORKING SUPPORT
Chameleon embraces open architecture and distribution of control. Various network interface modules are available to support widely-used industrial communication protocols such as Modbus, Modbus/TCP, Ethernet/IP, PROFIBUS DP, LonTalk, OPC and Custom ASCII/Binary.
UNPARALLELED ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION: MOUNT IT VIRTUALLY ANYWHERE
Chameleon products are rugged and tough—capable of operating in the most difficult industrial environments. They are designed to endure high-impact shock, extreme
vibration, and electrical power spikes.
They can operate over an extended
temperature range and are fully submersible. And they can be exposed to water, dirt and grit, oil sprays, humidity, corrosion, and other environmental hazards. In fact, Chameleon devices are so rugged that they pass the most stringent U.S. military requirements for use on combat vessels.
