Unitronics: Flat fascia HMI with key pad
Unitronics introduces the newest members of their Vision130™ PLC+HMI family- flat fascia Vision130™ units. The new flat fascia makes these models a perfect fit for the food & pharmaceutical industries.
With their IP66/IP65/NEMA4X rating, these units are ideal wherever spray/wipe down applications apply. Models include: V130-J-B1, V130-J-TR20, V130-J-R34, V130-J-TR34, V130-J-TR6, V130-J-RA22, V130-J-TRA22, V130-J-T2, V130-J-T38, V130-J-TA24. Their PLC + HMI advantage gives users the opportunity to operate on a minimum of budget, programming time and wiring.
With a wide variety of onboard, and expandable I/O options, these new units are capable of supporting up to 256 I/O. These configurations include digital and analog inputs and outputs, high-speed I/O, PT100/Thermocouple capabilities, and load cell for weight measurement. The I/O can be mounted locally or remotely, up to 1000m from the controller. These power-PLCs are equipped with recipe capabilities, Micro SD card memory storage for data logging and back up, complete PLC cloning and more.
Systems integrators can rely on a single device: the Vision130™ units can support 24 auto-tuned PID loops to control temperature, level, and pressure. The graphic LCD, 2.4” 128 X 64 pixel operator interface supports over 1024 user-designed screens with 400 images per application, a 20 key keypad, and is able to display trend graphs, and a text string library. Internal memory holds 512K of application logic, plus 128K for fonts and 256K for images.
Communication options include Ethernet, cellular, and industrial protocols such as MODBUS, DF1 slave, J1939, CANopen and more. In addition, the Vision130™ units can be ‘taught’ to communicate via almost any ASCII protocol. The controller is also capable of time based and immediate interrupts, making it a natural for ‘rapid response’ applications such as packaging machines.
Unitronics FREE VisiLogic software provides one user-friendly environment for hardware configuration, modular Ladder application development, and HMI design, including a library of industrial images. Unitronics also offers FREE technical support for all of their products.
The Vision130™ reduces overall system costs by minimizing hardware requirements, saving cabinet space—and, above all—exempting the user from setting up Panel-PLC communication.
