Recently, Unitronics launched 2 new dense I/O models for the UniStream line. By enabling users to implement more I/O points in less space, these two new dense I/O models improve the flexibility of UniStream platform and help users to reduce the overall system costs. The new models offered are UID-W1616T and UID-W1616R. The former includes 16 transistor, pnp or npn inputs and 16 pnp outputs, the latter includes 16 Relay, pnp or npn inputs and 16 outputs both 24VDC.
With UniStream the user can create a customized, all-in-one controller by snapping in the CPU and I/O modules to the HMI of their choice. The UniStream™ gives OEMs and systems integrators a competitive edge, enabling them to cut costs, save space and significantly lower programming time.
Together with the launch of these two dense I/O models, the supplier has also launched a 15.6" HMI panel for the UniStream series. With 7", 10.4" and now 15.6" HMI panels, the company offers coverage for all major segments of the market. According to the supplier, the intuitive UniLogic studio software cuts programming time by 50%, by predicting the programmer's intentions and reusing written code. Programmers build a library of user-defined function blocks and HMI screens which can be imported to new projects or shared with other programmers. The software's predictive capabilities save a significant amount of time defining I/O points, PIDs and other functions. Features like drag and drop, automatic line creation and re-use options for existing code make programming quick and easy.
UniStream supports RS485, CANopen, UniCAN, and MODBUS (serial and Ethernet). Unistream™ can adapt to third-party protocols; the USB and serial ports support external devices such as modems, printers, barcode readers and more.
