  • Enhanced Automation Integration - If you use Wonderware® to create HMIs for your ancillary automation, the SmartPAC PRO's Wonderware integration option enables the SmartPAC Pro to be the last screen you'll ever need to put on your press.


  • Versatile Installation Options - The main screen/HMI can be separated from the rest of the SmartPAC PRO system, simplifying installation and wiring. The only connection required between the HMI and the main SmartPAC PRO controller and I/O is a single USB cable. Wintriss also offers an optional pendant enclosure and pendant arm for added mounting versatility.
