New members to the V130 Series Same Features ▪ Same Price ▪ IP66/IP65

Following the success of the V570-57-T20B-J flat-panel and recently announced V350-J, we are introducing the flat-panel V130-J models, specifically suited to the requirements of the Food & Pharmaceutical Industries.

NEW look V130-J

When Can I Get One?    First delivery from October 1st.

 What are the differences between the V130-J Flat models and the V130 classic models?    The models are identical: Specification, Wiring, Software, Size and Price. The only difference is with the front panel.

Was IP66 introduced now to the V130-J series only?     No, IP66 certification is available with the V130 classic version also.

 What are the available Models?

i4 Automation review of 2011

In this Newsletter we have a review of what’s been new in 2011 as we have had so many new and exciting products added we thought many were worth another mention.

Unitronics:- IO-AI8
Low cost Analogue expansion
Analogue Inputs at a Lower Price!    With close similarities to the current IO-ATC8 module, the NEW IO-AI8 now offers 8 Analogue inputs without the thermocouple capabilities. Now, if your requirements do not call for thermocouple capabilities, you can add solitary analogue I/O at a lower cost!
Unitronics:- V570-57-T20B-J
Same as the standard 5.7" without the silver bezel.
5.7″ Full Colour PLC with integrated PLC
• It is rated IP66
• It has a fully flat fascia
This is especially beneficial to industries, where customers need to be able to spray & wipe down the panel.

Westermo 5 way un-managed swith
Westermo Data Communications Westermo products have always meant quality, which is normally reflected in the price but that’s not always the case.
SDI-550  i-Line Unmanaged Switch
5 x 10/100 Base TX
£65.00 IN STOCK
Unitronics:- Profibus Capabilities
Now with Profibus
V100-17-PB1:   Via an easy to use function block, the enhanced Vision350™ & Vision130™ controllers installed with the new communication card can function in a PROFIBUS DP network as slave devices via GSD files. This enables the controllers to be integrated into applications that have a PROFIBUS network, under PROFIBUS master devices.
Unitronics:- High-Speed, PTO
These new, high-speed “TR” models (Listed below) can handle inputs up to 200kHz while high-speed outputs are able to support 5Hz to 200kHz. They enable the user to implement up to 2 independent Pulse Train Output instruction sets at one time for accurate Step-motor control. Providing flexibility when configuring a system’s precise requirements, these new high-speed I/Os offer particular benefits wherever speed control is required. *V350-35-TR20, V350-35-TR6, V130-33-TR20, V130-33-TR6*
PULS:- Redundant Power Supplies
Why Redundancy?
• Protects against system failures
• Saves money over the life time of a system
• Reduces call out engineer costs
• Removes emergency call outs
• Zero down time
• Longer life
• Peace of mind for customers
Unitronics:- V200-18-E62B
 More I/O Than Ever! Snap-in I/O module are equipped with 62 I/O! Being equipped with more I/O allows this snap-in module to help cut costs by taking the place of expansion modules and adapters allowing for a large number of I/O in a very small foot print at very low cost.
Unitronics:- V1210 & V1040
12.1″ & 10.4″ Full Colour Touch Screen PLC and HMI more excellent value for money with the programming software and cables with every product.
Programme it ONCE!
Unitronics:- V200-18-E46B
In addition to its variety of I/O capabilities, the latest feature this module has to offer is its ability to support 9 analogue inputs.
That’s a low cost way of getting many analogue inputs into a PLC and HMI saving you space and money.
SensoPart:- V 10
V 10 Object detection
New Vision Sensor product family
• Detects the right part in the wrong place – and vice-versa
• Five detectors plus position detection
• Image processing made easy

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.
