Unitronics PLC & HMI all in One Unit: Now PROFIBUS option

Unitronics, a global developer and manufacturer of Programmable Logic Controllers with integrated HMIs, now supports fast, deterministic data exchange on the factory floor with NEW PROFIBUS communication capabilities.

Unitronics now have Profibus option contact i4 Automation

Unitronics new communication module, the V100-17-PB1, is now available for the Vision350™ and Vision130™ series all-in-one controllers. Via an easy to use function block, the enhanced controllers installed with the new communication card can function in a PROFIBUS DP network as slave devices via GSD files. This enables the Unitronics controllers to be integrated into applications that have a PROFIBUS network, under PROFIBUS master devices.


Why use Unitronics PROFIBUS? Not only do these enhanced models give users with PROFIBUS networks the compatibility advantage, but all Unitronics controllers contain a built-in, user-friendly operator panel and a wide variety of onboard and expandable input/output options. Unitronics integrated controllers now give engineers and systems integrators the benefit of distributed slave control in a pre-existing PROFIBUS network with a bare minimum of budget, programming time, cabinet space and wiring.


Both series of controllers support many types of analogue and digital I/O options, including high-speed I/O, PT100/Thermocouple capabilities, and weight measurement. These can be mounted locally or remotely, up to 1000m from the controller. The Vision350™ can support up to 512  I/Os via on board and expansion modules, while the Vision130™ model is expandable up to 256 I/O points. The Vision350™’s 3.5”, 65K colour touchscreen can show over 1000 displays, with 6MB for images and fonts, while the Vision130™ model features a graphical screen and keypad. Both units can also display graphs according to historical values- to reflect trends of recorded data. With the new addition of PROFIBUS, other communication options include TCP/IP Ethernet, GSM/SMS, MODBUS and CANopen networking plus remote access for data acquisition and program download. Other core capabilities include a rich range of embedded features such as 24 independent PID loops, internal 120K data table for datalogging and recipe programming, and SD card.
