UniStream, Unitronics' modular HMI + PLC controller, has been enhanced by a new I/O module with 8 analog inputs. The new I/O module can be snapped onto a panel, or can be located further away as part of a remote I/O configuration. The system is modular. The user creates an all-in-one controller by selecting an HMI touch-panel of the size - 7", 10.4", or 15.6" - that suits the application, and then snapping on the CPU and the exact I/O modules required.
Supporting the new module is the most recently released version of UniLogic, the all-in-one development environment for hardware configuration and HMI & PLC Ladder programs. UniLogic version 1.12.20 brings a number of new features that boost application power, such as displaying streaming video via a network camera using the RTSP Real Time Streaming Protocol, and SNMP v1/v2/v3 support.
Webserver reach has also been increased, with the addition of Linear and Circular gauge widgets to the Webserver Drag & Drop editor, which enable a remote user to watch running application values via an Internet browser, as if they were viewing the gauges on the HMI panel display.
The HMI + PLC controller supports RS485, CANopen, SNMP, UniCAN, and MODBUS (serial and Ethernet). It can adapt to third-party protocols; the USB and serial ports support external devices such as modems, printers, barcode readers and more.
