GET THE BIG
PICTURE THE NEW VISION1040
TM PLC & 10.4”
Unitronics new Vision1040™ PLC and integrated HMI allows machine manufacturers
and system integrators to add both a brilliant 10.4” color touch-screen
equipped with 9 programmable function key display, and full PLC functionality
to their systems at an unbeatable price-performance ratio. Users are able to
enjoy up to 1,024 I/O options, a USB
programming port, data logging, and built-in recipe capability all while
maintaining a low budget, reduced programming time, and minimum wiring.
Industrial control processes can now rely on a single
device: the Vision1040™ can use 24 auto-tuned PID loops to control temperature,
level, and pressure, while the 16-bit, 65K 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.
The memory holds 2MB of application logic, plus 1MB for
fonts and 80MB for images. Features include Micro SD card memory storage for
data logging and back up, complete PLC cloning and more. The controller is
fast; scanning 1K of a typical application in 9 µsec, making it a natural for
‘rapid response’ applications such as packaging machines.
Communication options include TCP/IP Ethernet, cellular,
and industrial protocols such as MODBUS, DF1 slave, J1939, CANopen and more. In
addition, the Vision1040™ can be ‘taught’ to communicate via almost any
Like other members of the Vision series, Vision1040™
supports digital, high-speed, and analog I/Os, as well as direct temperature
measurement inputs via snap-in and remote I/O modules. Unitronics’ free
VisiLogic software provides one user-friendly environment for hardware
configuration, modular Ladder application development, and HMI design,
including a rich color library of industrial images.
The Vision1040™ reduces overall system costs by cutting
programming time, minimizing hardware requirements, saving cabinet space—and,
above all—exempting the user from setting up Panel-PLC communication.
Series OPLCs and VisiLogic Software
A Vision Series controller is a compact PLC with on-board
I/Os and a Graphic Operator Interface.
Vision’s integral HMI panel contains a graphics-ready LCD and function
keyboard. This enables you to use
graphic images and bar graphs to represent real-time variable data, create and
show text instructions, and to display actual run-time system data. The operator uses the keyboard to enter or
modify system data.
Vision’s on-board I/Os offer D/A inputs including
HSC/shaft-encoders/frequency measurers, and relay/transistor outputs including
PWM. Hooked up to Unitronics’ I/O
Expansion Modules, Vision supports an additional 128 I/Os.
One-stop VisiLogic programming enables you to build both
HMI and PLC applications. Click-and-drop
contacts, coils, and functions into your Ladder; structure your control
application using Modules and Subroutines.
Design up to 100 HMI Displays on an LCD replica, assign key functions;
then download and test your program.
Live Update from the Web ensures that you stay current with FB releases,
software, and OS updates.
Vision OPLCs offer 2 RS232 ports (depending on the
model), networking, and RTC. V120 also
offers built-in RS485.
