      Hi people!
      Our newest product was developed in answer to customers who needed UniStream performance--but who do not require an integrated HMI panel.
      >drum roll<
      Meet the UniStream PLC  
      This unique PLC,  unlike other UniStream controllers, does not have an integrated HMI panel--however,  it supports HMI applications just like any other UniStream.
      The secret is Virtual HMI. This means that you can mount the controller on a DIN rail in a cabinet, and access it from:
      any mobile device that supports VNC the new UniStream Display (USL) any UniStream Modular HMI panel (USP) any UniStream Built-in (on the panels integral to the device) The UniStream PLC is a line of PLCs with built-in I/Os that may be mounted on a DIN-rail. Unlike other UniStream Controllers, does not include a built-in HMI screen.
      This PLC is appropriate for applications that need UniStream power and functionality, but that either do not require an HMI application, or that require a distributed HMI.
      All UniStream PLCs support Virtual HMI--they can display HMI screens which you design in UniLogic in exactly the same way as for any other UniStream controller. You can display the HMI screens on:
      UniStream Displays (USL), included in this release. UniStream Displays are a series of color touch-screens that support VNC.
      UniStream Modular HMI panels (USP)
      UniStream Built-in (on the panels integral to the device)
      Any device screen that supports VNC

      The series is available in three versions: Pro, Standard, and Basic.
      When you select your UniStream model in Hardware Configuration, only relevant options are available in UniLogic.

      ----------------------------------From our official press release:
      The UniStream PLC is based on proven, award-winning UniStream hardware and UniLogic software that enhances your ability to implement all of the control tasks required by your machine or process application.
      A multi-function controller that matches a vast range of application requirements, the UniStream PLC provides users with advanced communication support, including Industry 4.0, and introduces a unique concept in Virtual HMIs.
      Virtual HMI – A New Approach to Automation
      UniStream PLC combines two technologies in one product:
      Virtual HMI– As an Industry first, the PLC stores and runs the program logic as well as the HMI user application within the PLC itself. This brings you a unique advantage: you can view and operate your machine, or access your process via any mobile phone, PC, or remote display device. Controller Hardware – The powerful controller has built-in I/Os that can be expanded to more than 2,000 I/Os, including digital, analog, high-speed and temperature, as well as communication modules supporting Modbus, Ethernet/IP, MQTT, SQL, SNMP, and more.   Along with the UniStream PLC, Unitronics has also released a line of compatible displays, offering customers a full package for varied PLC and HMI requirements.
      Award-winning Programming Software
      UniStream PLC is backed by UniLogic® all-in-one programming software, which cuts programming time up to 50%, and includes Built-in Trends and Gauges, auto-tuned PID, data sampling, complex data tools, Recipes and more.
      UniLogic offers OEMs and System Integrators a faster and easier programming solution as all tasks can be programmed using the same software environment. Users can build the PLC application, design HMI screens, create web pages in multiple languages, and save it all in a library to reuse in other projects.
      The best of two worlds: Robust PLC Hardware with Virtual HMI
      With its robust hardware and extremely efficient time-saving programming software, the new controller benefits users in multiple ways, simplifying and speeding projects, while offering outstanding configuration versatility.
      “Unitronics is well-known for outstanding innovation, and with our new UniStream PLC, we’ve done it again,” says Boaz Karmy, VP Sales and Marketing, at Unitronics. “Richly featured and powerful, yet compactly designed, the UniStream PLC raises the bar by providing unique Virtual HMI features and versatile hardware configuration, using the same programming environment.” –

      VFD, inverter, AC drive - engineers call these adjustable speed drives by different names, but all use them to control motor speed  and torque.
      Now, you can obtain your VFDs from the same supplier as your PLC + HMI controllers. Unitronics VFDs can be used as a stand-alone product, or as part of a complete All-in-One package with our PLC+HMI controllers: UniStream®, Vision™ and Samba™.
      This simplifies workflow by enabling you to:
      Obtain your VFDs, PLC + HMI controllers and related components, as well as technical support, from a single supplier. Operate your VFD directly from the controller’s HMI panel Use the same programming software as the PLC control and HMI application, to: Set-up and configure multiple VFDs in a snap Monitor and debug your VFD  Remotely Access your VFD For more information, check out the VFD page in our website:

      Joe Tauser - if you've spent 5 minutes on this forum,  you know Joe as a forum moderator, expert in all things Unitronics. If you have ever asked for help, you have probably benefited from his broad knowledge of control engineering.
      Joe offered some good, cautionary advice for those implementing IoT in their applications that appears in the May edition of Control Engineering, European edition,  in  an article on machine control technology developments, spotlight on IIOT, 
      Click here to see the May issue, the article is on page 33 - I've captured that page below:
