PLCs and PACs are similar as they both perform the same essential functions. With modern technology, their differences are becoming more blurred. The most notable difference between PLCs and PACs is their programming interface. PACs are more intricate, using C or C++. PLCs on the other hand, are programmed using ladder logic. These programming differences create distinctions in the architecture and capability between the two computers.
TE Connectivity's Ethernet Switches with M12 Connectivity supports data speeds up to 1Gb/s and features between five and eight ports depending on the model, all supporting M12 connectivity. The switches increase network reliability and safety by transfering data to the next network node in case of a power failure. TE Ethernet Switches work most efficiently in public transportation, railways, trams, metro, or heavy induatial applications.
