Analogue I/O modules to suit application needs
03 March 2015
The UniStream modular HMI + PLC controller, from Unitronics, recently became available with a new I/O module with eight analogue inputs.
The new I/O module can be snapped onto a panel, or can be located further away as part of a remote I/O configuration.
The modular solution allows users to create an all-in-one controller by selecting a HMI touch-panel – sized 7in, 10.4in, or 15.6in ¬– to best suit the application, and then snapping on the CPU and the exact I/O modules required. This gives the machine builder a customised controller that exactly matches the application’s needs while cutting costs by saving space and wiring.
Supporting the new module is the most recently released version of UniLogi™, the company’s all-in-one development environment for hardware configuration and HMI & PLC Ladder programs. This brings a number of new features that boost application power, such as displaying streaming video via a network camera using the RTSP Real Time Streaming Protocol, and SNMP v1/v2/v3 support.
Webserver reach has also been increased, with the addition Linear and Circular gauge widgets to the Webserver Drag & Drop editor, which enable a remote user to watch running application values via an Internet browser.
UniStream supports RS485, CANopen, SNMP, UniCAN, and MODBUS (serial and Ethernet). It can adapt to third-party protocols; the USB and serial ports support external devices such as modems, printers, barcode readers and more.
