The award-winning Vision™ all-in-one PLC series welcomes its newest member - the Vision700™. The Vision700™ programmable logic controller has an integrated wide 7" touchscreen (800 x 480) and was developed to answer the wide screen market trend.
It is the popular size for the future, allowing OEMs to give their machines the most updated look, at a very fair price, with strong PLC performance. The built in Ethernet port of the V700™ suits the global trend of machine connectivity.
The Vision700™ model offers a wide range of I/O configurations that can include digital, high-speed, and analog I/Os, as well as PT100/Thermocouple and weight/pressure measurement. The Vision700™ can uses both snap-in I/O modules that plug directly into the back of the Vision700™ and regular din rail mounted I/O expansion units.
Expansion modules enable local and remote I/O at distances of up to 1000 meters, making the Vision700™ a cost-effective solution for applications with up to 1000 I/O points.
Communication options are Ethernet, cellular, and industrial protocols such as MODBUS, DF1 slave, BACnet, J1939, CANopen and more. Each unit comes supplied with an Ethernet port , a USB programming port and an RS232/RS485 port; An additional RS232/RS485 or Profibus communication can be added, as well as CANbus communication. A micro SD card slot for data logging and backup is included as well.
In addition, the 'Protocol' utility allows the Vision700™ to communicate via almost any ASCII protocol. The unit can be directly accessed through a mini-USB programming port, and remotely accessed using GPRS/GSM/CDMA and other IP networks for data acquisition and program download. Another major benefit is the ability to notify supervisors of critical information via e-mail and SMS, enabling real-time remote management.
Display options are almost endless. The machine operator communicates directly with the application via the resistive analog touchscreen-or remotely, via the free Remote Operator utility-which displays data, color trend graphs, and attention-grabbing alarm screens. The flat fascia and IP66/IP65/NEMA4X rating makes the Vision700™ an excellent fit for the food and pharmaceutical industries, and anywhere spray or wipe down requirements apply.
OEMs and machine builders profit from intuitive, all-in-one VisiLogic software that enables rapid hardware configuration, PLC, and HMI application programming. VisiLogic for programmable controllers includes a full library of Drag & Drop function blocks for complex automation control tasks, such as PID, and a rich color library of industrial images.
Unitronics is a pioneer in the manufacturing and design of programmable controllers with integrated HMI and on-board I/Os - rugged PLC product lines that meet a diverse range of requirements. You program your entire application in a single, intuitive software environment, and benefit from best-of-breed technical support, both provided at no extra cost.
