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:

By Cara Bereck Levy in Unitronics' Blog: PLCs, HMIs and more 0We are proud to announce the Unitronics' Community MVPs for 2017!
In 2017, the Unitronics Community welcomed over 600 new topics, and over 3,000 new posts. Our MVPs help to make this possible.
These guys have great general expertise in all things control, specific expertise in Unitronics programmable controllers, and a knack for getting to the heart of a problem. All three devote a great deal of time and energy to the community—not only to help forum members, but also as community moderators, helping the forum to run smoothly.
This year's MVPs are:
Joe Tauser, of Joe Tauser & Associates, located in St.Louis, Missouri, USA, http://www.jtauser.com/
Barry Lanier—you know him as Flex727—located in Allen, Texas, USA (near Dallas) firstname.lastname@example.org
The one and only Ausman. On a personal note, I truly value the patience these individuals show in helping forum members pinpoint the source of a problem, the solutions they find—and their humor. A little humor goes a long way!
This year, I'd also like to give an Honorable Mention—a shout-out to Dustin Brewer, of Brewer Electronics, http://www.brewerelectronics.com, known as Hotwires, for his participation in 2017.
In recognition of their fine work, the profiles of our
MVPs will be marked with a new icon for 2017
Thanks, and may all your apps run bug-free in the year 2018!
