Industrial Control Breakthrough: Unitronics Launches Unique, High-Performance PLC
- Published: Monday, 29 April 2019 08:25
Unitronics redefines the PLC world with a new concept in industrial control – a PLC with Virtual HMI.
Unitronics is proud to introduce a powerful new controller: UniStream® PLC.
The UniStream PLC is based on proven, award-winning UniStream hardware and UniLogic software that enhances your ability to implement all of the control tasks required by your machine or process application.
A multi-function controller that matches a vast range of application requirements, the UniStream PLC provides users with advanced communication support, including Industry 4.0, and introduces a unique concept in Virtual HMIs.
Virtual HMI – A New Approach to Automation
UniStream PLC combines two technologies in one product:
• Virtual HMI- As an Industry first, the PLC stores and runs the program logic as well as the HMI user application within the PLC itself. This brings you a unique advantage: you can view and operate your machine, or access your process via any mobile phone, PC, or remote display device.
• Controller Hardware – The powerful controller has built-in I/Os that can be expanded to more than 2,000 I/Os, including digital, analog, high-speed and temperature, as well as communication modules supporting Modbus, Ethernet/IP, MQTT, SQL, SNMP, and others.
Along with the UniStream PLC, Unitronics has also released a line of compatible displays, offering customers a full package for varied PLC and HMI requirements.
Award-winning Programming Software
UniStream PLC is backed by UniLogic® all-in-one programming software, which cuts programming time up to 50% by Built-in Trends and Gauges, auto-tuned PID, data sampling, complex data tools, Recipes and more.
UniLogic offers OEMs and System Integrators a faster and easier programming solution as all tasks can be programmed using the same software environment. Users can build the PLC application, design HMI screens, create web pages in multiple languages, and save it all in a library to reuse in other projects.
The best of two worlds: Robust PLC Hardware with Virtual HMI
With its robust hardware and extremely efficient time-saving programming software, the new controller benefits users in multiple ways, simplifying and speeding projects, while offering outstanding configuration versatility.
“Unitronics is well-known for outstanding innovation, and with our new UniStream PLC, we’ve done it again,” says Boaz Karmy, VP Sales and Marketing, at Unitronics. “Richly featured and powerful, yet compactly designed, the UniStream PLC raises the bar by providing unique Virtual HMI features and versatile hardware configuration, using the same programming environment.” -
