All new Unitronics Vision700

The Unitronics Vision all-in-one PLC series now has the the Vision700. The Unitronics V700 has an integrated wide 7in touchscreen (800 x 480) and was developed to answer the wide screen market trend.

The size allows OEMs to give their machines the most updated look with strong PLC performance. The built-in Ethernet port of the V700 suits the global trend of machine connectivity.

The Unitronics Vision700 model offers a wide range of I/O configurations that can include digital, high-speed, and analog I/Os, as well as PT100/Thermocouple and weight/pressure measurement. The Vision700 can uses both snap-in I/O modules that plug directly into the back of the Vision700 and regular din rail mounted I/O expansion units. Expansion modules enable local and remote I/O at distances of up to 1,000m, making the Vision700 a cost-effective solution for applications with up to 1000 I/O points.

Communication options are Ethernet, cellular, and industrial protocols such as MODBUS, DF1 slave, BACnet, J1939, CANopen and more. Each unit comes supplied with an Ethernet port , a USB programming port and an RS232/RS485 port; an additional RS232/RS485 or Profibus communication can be added, as well as CANbus communication. A micro SD card slot for data logging and backup is included as well.

In addition, the ‘Protocol’ utility allows the Vision700 to communicate via almost any ASCII protocol. The unit can be directly accessed through a mini-USB programming port, and remotely accessed using GPRS/GSM/CDMA and other IP networks for data acquisition and program download. Another major benefit is the ability to notify supervisors of critical information via e-mail and SMS, enabling real-time remote management.

Display options are almost endless. The machine operator communicates directly with the application via the resistive analog touchscreen—or remotely, via the free Remote Operator utility—which displays data, color trend graphs, and attention-grabbing alarm screens. The flat fascia and IP66/IP65/NEMA4X rating makes the Vision700 an excellent fit for the food and pharmaceutical industries, and anywhere spray or wipe down requirements apply.

OEMs and machine builders profit from intuitive, all-in-one VisiLogic software that enables rapid hardware configuration, PLC, and HMI application programming. VisiLogic includes a full library of Drag & Drop function blocks for complex automation control tasks, such as PID, and a rich color library of industrial images.

Unitronics is a pioneer in the manufacturing and design of PLCs with integrated HMI and on-board I/Os – rugged PLC product lines that meet a diverse range of requirements. You program your entire application in a single, intuitive software environment, and benefit from best-of-breed technical support, both provided at no extra cost.
