I work in a heavily validated environment.

I need to image an industrial PC which is on a domain without removing the hard drive thus the image will have to be taken over the network.

The software I have to do this is either BackupExe 2012 or Acronis True Image 13.

What would be the best way to do this?

Acronis is the best for that purpose.
You can have a NAS and schedule the backups
Depends on your nature of job, in case of space issues you can go for incremental backup
else you can define the space allocated for the backups and it will maintain the backups as long as they fit in the allocated space and will delete the oldest one.
It can even send you emails on successful or unsuccessful tasks
Highly recommended
