    1. Latest Release! UniLogic V1.28 introduces Motion & OPC-UA   (21,236 visits to this link)

      Unitronics fall release for 2019 launches a major addition to our All-in-One Solution: Motion Control. Our full range of Servos and Motors is easily programmed in UniLogic; the Ladder editor offers PLCopen-compliant MC Function Blocks. In addition, Unitronics supplies you with Ready-made Motion code; this enables you to immediately get moving with your Motion system.

      UniLogic greatly simplifies servo applications by enabling you to:

      •  Drag & drop drives and motors into your project: UniLogic automatically defines the correct configuration and automatically sets up communications for you
      •  Add up to 8 Axes, drag & drop actuators; UniLogic automatically converts units
      •  Benefit from automatic calculations: UniLogic analyzes the mechanical properties of your selections and recommends safe values
      •  Use the Ready-made Motion application to execute movements, such as Point-to-Point, Jog, and Homing--you can open this application and edit as needed to adapt it to your motion requirements
      •  Program Motion Control via drag & drop, using industry standard motion Function Blocks (PLCopen)
      •  Tune your system using a single parameter
      •  Diagnostics: View servo run-time performance via UniLogic’s built-in powerful, high-speed scope

      Another major feature of this release is OPC UA - UniStream controllers can now act as OPC UA servers.

    1. SD Card Suite

      Enhanced Vision OPLCs support SD cards that enable application data to be stored and remotely accessed.
      SD Suite enables you to view and manipulate that data, as well as format cards and perform other tasks.
      Note that SD Cards also enable , complex web-page hosting, and application cloning between OPLCs.

    2. Remote Operator

      Remote Operator enables you to use a PC to view and work with a remote controller's HMI panel.
      You can define any number of controllers, then open multiple sessions to view them simultaneously, while docking or cascading windows according to your preferences.

    3. Remote Access

      Remote Access enables you to use a PC to access remote Vision, M90/91, and Jazz OPLCs.
      Remote Access includes UniDownload Designer, and Operand and Data Tables access.

    4. DataXport and DataXls

      DataXport creates logs of run-time or stored data from Data Tables and operand regions within Unitronics PLCs. DataXport saves the data logs in .ulp format. You can open these data logs using DataXport's companion application, DataXls, and then export the data to Excel files.

    5. UniDownloader

      This tool downloads compressed control applications to local or remote Unitronics controllers. You generate a compressed application from within either U90 Ladder or VisiLogic. Your end user will be able to download the application, but will not be able to view or modify it. The tool can download applications and OS.

    6. UniOPC

      UniOPC Server (Unitronics OPC Server) enables you to read and write data between Unitronics OPLCs and applications that support OPC, such as SCADA programs.

    7. UniDDE

      Recorded Webinar Content
      Coronavirus Lockdown! You CAN reach your PLCWithout leaving home!
      No matter how perfectly you plan your project, how impeccably you implement automation, you must be prepared for the unexpected:
       System error? Burned out peripheral? Pump jammed?
      Where is the Operator?
       Production order changed, increased, cancelled?
      Where is the Production Manager?
      Remote PLC Access and Control is absolutely vital to you and your customers. 
      How to implement Remote Access using different controller families in order to execute different tasks. Subjects include:
      Controlling and Monitoring your Application from Anywhere
             Learn how to connect to your controller from your mobile or PC via VNC, mobile app, or web-browser.
       Remote Troubleshooting
             Is your machine or application malfunctioning? Your support technicians can connect to it in real time and take immediate action.
       Setting Up a System – Remotely
             Are you a system integrator who needs to set up a machine or system at the customer site? You can access your system and run setup without being physically present.
      Dynamic Recipe Modifications – Off-site
             Do you need to change a production recipe, fast? UniStream’s FTP Server enables you to transfer files to the PLC to modify the recipe and automatically enable the PLC to carry out the task.
      Updating Software – Remotely 
              Are there changes, or have feature been added to your system? You can execute updates remotely via UniLogic, VisiLogic, or the UniDownloader utility depending on your controller family.
      Alerting Your Staff
             You can easily set up notification groups for Managers, Supervisors, Operators, etc, and send alerts to mobile or PC - via SMS, email, mobile app, the cloud via MQTT and more.
      Safeguarding HMI Access
             When your staff accesses a UniStream HMI remotely, you can limit who sees what, and whether they can perform specific action via UAC – User-controlled Access.
      Additional Unitronics Benefits:
      When you use Unitronics, you also benefit from:
      No licensing costs Saving on time and costs Monitor systems globally-  Just like being on site Fewer maintenance visits, better control and improved service to your customers  TAKING ACTION: CONTROL

      Today, more than ever before, you need offsite access, the ability to access your control applications from anywhere, at any time, because in the immortal words of Murphy:
      "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.."
