By Cara Bereck Levy in Unitronics' Blog: PLCs, HMIs and more 3This major release introduces a number of new features that will boost your productivity, such as wide Ladder nets and dynamic I/O configurations. You can download it from here: https://unitronicsplc.com/software-visilogic/
In addition, when you install this version and open it for the first time, a pop-up will allow you to access app store links for Unitronics’ Remote Operator for Mobile app.
Remote Operator for Mobile
The Help menu now offers a link that will access the App store. In addition, the Help topic Remote Operator via Mobile App now contains QR codes that you can scan with your mobile to get the app.
2X the Space
VisiLogic Ladder nets are now wide, and reach completely across your PC screen - no empty areas. This gives you twice the editing space.
Switching I/O Configurations
Once you have added I/O Expansion Modules to your project, you can create variations called 'IO Module Configurations'.
Configurations are hardware profiles that enable a controller to run the application if it has a physical I/O configuration that is different from the full I/O Configuration in the project. Each profile that you create has an index number.
You determine which configuration is active by storing a value in SI 205. The application will run according to the selected Config without error.
To enable your program logic to run correctly when switching configurations, you must map the digital inputs and outputs to MBs, and use these MBs as program conditions instead of Input and Output operands. Since analog I/Os are linked to operands, they do not require any special handling.
Run As Admin
VisiLogic and other software utilities are now set to "Run as Admin".
Simple, static HMI elements such as lines and circles now appear on the Project
Navigation Tree under Static.
You can now Jump to Display in Alarms when running Remote Access.
V700, SI 184: Port
SI 184 Indicates which port is installed: 0-none, 1-serial, 2-ethernet,4-Profibus
You can now export using different pictures and data formats. Note that the Excel file is saved as .xls file that cannot be opened in office 2013 but can be opened in office 2010 .
You can now zoom HMI displays to twice their size, when editing displays for V700 and V1040, V1210 .
Separators are now supported when importing/exporting.
You can also select whether to import Fast operands, preset/current of timers and counters.
The CSV of operand descriptions now includes a row of operands types.
While importing, VisiLogic now displays a progress bar.

The VisiLogic Interface can now be translated to Russian.
Comments are fully printed when printing Ladder.
Data Table export
Each Data table field can be assigned a special caption and format for export to Excel.

A new type, CRC-16/BYPASS is now supported.
Virtual keyboards now have the underscore symbol where the copyright symbol was held.
