Unitronics Intros Big-Screen Controller
Touch-screen control unit.
Quincy, MA — New from Unitronics is the newest big-screen member of their PLC+HMI family — the Vision1210. Industrial control processes can now enjoy full PLC functionality with a larger than ever 12.1-in., 65K color-touchscreen. The PLC + HMI advantage gives users the opportunity to operate on a minimum of budget, programming time and wiring.

According to the company, this controller is an excellent fit for the food industry — with its IP66 rating, this unit is ideal wherever spray/wipe down applications apply. A wide variety of onboard I/O options can be added by simply snapping a module onto the back of the PLC. With additional expansion modules allowing up to 1024 I/O, these configurations include digital and analog inputs and outputs, high-speed I/O, PT100/Thermocouple capabilities, and weight measurement. They can be mounted locally or remotely, up to 1000m from the controller.

This power-PLC is equipped with a built-in USB programming port, recipe capabilities, Micro SD card memory storage for data logging and back up, complete PLC cloning and more.

Systems integrators can now rely on a single device: the Vision1210® can support 24 auto-tuned PID loops to control temperature, level, and pressure, while the 16-bit, 12.1-in. 800 X 600 pixel SVGA color touch screen displays data, color trend graphs, and attention-grabbing alarm screens.

Display options are almost endless, with more than 1000 user-designed screens, and up to 500 images per application. Internal memory holds 2MB of application logic, plus 1MB for fonts and 32MB for images.

Communication options include Ethernet, cellular, and industrial protocols such as MODBUS, DF1 slave, J1939, CANopen and more. In addition, the Vision1210 can be "taught" to communicate via almost any device-based protocol. The controller is also capable of time based and immediate interrupts, making it a natural for "rapid response" applications such as packaging machines.
