Sydney, N S W – April 3, 2014 – Micromax is proud to introduce the newest members of the Unitronics Vision350™ PLC+HMI family- flat fascia Vision350™ Programmable Logic Controllers with onboard HMIs. 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: V350-J-B1, V350-J-R34, V350-J-RA22, V350-J-T2, V350-J-T38, V350-J-TA24, V350-J-TR20, V350-J-TR34, V350-J-TR6, and V350-J-TRA22. 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 512 I/O. These configurations include digital and analog inputs and outputs, high-speed I/O, PT100/Thermocouple capabilities, and 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 Vision350™ units can support 24 auto-tuned PID loops to control temperature, level, and pressure, while the 16-bit, 3.5″ 320 X 240 QVGA color touch screen displays data, color trend graphs, and attention-grabbing alarm screens. Display options are almost endless, with more than 1024 user-designed screens, and up to 250 images per application. Internal memory holds 1MB of application logic, plus 512K for fonts and 6MB for images.
Communication options include Ethernet, cellular, and industrial protocols such as MODBUS, DF1 slave, J1939, CANopen and more. In addition, the Vision350™ 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 rich color library of industrial images. Unitronics also offers FREE technical support for all of their products.
The Vision350™ reduces overall system costs by minimizing hardware requirements, saving cabinet space—and, above all—exempting the user from setting up Panel-PLC communication.
