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?

How easy it is to connect our range of PLC and integrated HMI’s to 3rd party intelligent sensors or nearly any other device’s via RS232 / RS485.

Following on from the recent exhibitions and interest that has been expressed in communication options. We thought it would be a worthwhile exercise to emphasise how easy it is to connect our range of PLC and integrated HMI’s to 3rd party intelligent sensors or nearly any other device’s via RS232 / RS485.


Unitronics engineers have worked hard to reduce the pain involved in serial communications by producing a function block that allows you to configure a message using a comprehensive set of pre-defined conversion and calculation tools.  The net result is a neat little box in the middle of your program that sends out a question and returns the answer to a place of your choice.

Plus the added value of free programming software
Integrated PLC & HMI
Choice of communication protocols, Modbus, Profibus, Ethernet, CANbus, UniCAN, DF1…
Demonstration stock to prove your application
Great technical support

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.
