We would just like to say a big thank you to everybody who took the time to visit us at the recent PPMA2017 show. It was busy and we are following all interest expressed with some exciting ideas and great prices. Thank you also for the support from the team at Unitronics.

A short clip showing the Unitronics V1210 in action with a customers application, checking to see how tender the peas are before harvesting.
All new customers get a free place on one of our training course's
Plus we offer the option to "Fast Track" your project with focused training on your application.
Our Unitronics Training schedule for 2017 is now available http://www.i4automation.co.uk/trainingpdf.aspx
Contact us for more information.http://www.i4automation.co.uk/contact.aspx
A short video on YouTube showing you....
We show you how we connected the STOBER servo range of drives (MDS 5000) to the Unitronics Unistream range of integrated PLC and HMI. In this example we use just the CPU, USC-P-B10 and a 7" display, USC-P-B10 plus the free programming software Unistream. It was very simple to do, please contact us for more information or a demonstration.
We have also done this with the STOBER SDS 5000 range of drives.
There are many training kits for people starting off on their journey of Factory Automation (FA). Here at i4 Automation we think it's worth while going strait for the real thing.
1. Free training place for ALL new customers (T & C apply).
2. Free programming software (integrated solution for the PLC and HMI)
3. Free programming cable.
4. PLC and HMI all in one. (you only have to learn 1 software package and do the job once!)

Our 2015 training schedule is available on line.
Or contact us direct to fast track your project with our dedicated engineers. Ideal if you already know PLC programming and want to save programming time and hardware costs.
Free training for ALL new customers.

We are recruiting for Trainee Technical Support Engineer http://goo.gl/9CsZr0
Come and join us for a two day training course designed for you to get the most out of the free Vision software.
July 22 2014 & July 23 2014
Limited places avalible so please contact us first.
If you are looking to use your first PLC or you are “power“ users (with extensive PLC programming experience) we have a range of products and a training course to meet your needs. We hold regular training course at our office and can also come to you and train your team.
Give us a call for more information. 01 480 395 256 (UK)
Or download the 2014 training schedule.
We thought it would be a worthwhile exercise to emphasise how easy it is to connect our range of PLC and integrated HMI's to 3rd party intelligent sensors or nearly any other device’s via RS232 / RS485.
Unitronics engineers have worked hard to reduce the pain involved in serial communications by producing a function block that allows you to configure a message using a comprehensive set of pre-defined conversion and calculation tools. The net result is a neat little box in the middle of your program that sends out a question and returns the answer to a place of your choice.
Plus the added value of free programming software
Integrated PLC & HMI
Choice of communication protocols, Modbus, Profibus, Ethernet, CANbus, UniCAN, DF1...
Demonstration stock to prove your application
Great technical support

UK Unitronics Visilogic training, 3 day course.
October 15 / 16 / 17
We run Visilogic training every month, please contact us for more information on dates and costs etc
When you install the Unitronics programming software this includes a comprehensive set of example programs covering all aspects of Vision and U90 Ladder functions.
These example programs can be opened by selecting Help > Examples from the Visilogic or U90 Ladder software.
The examples split into two general areas, those which demonstrate how to use the PLC functions, such as maths or comparisons, and those which show how to configure applications, such as sending SMS messages or logging data to an SD card.
If the example program that you need is written for the wrong type of PLC then simply Project > Export the PLC subroutines and then Project > Import them into a project for the correct PLC type.
These small programs really work and can save huge amounts of development time as you learn from the experience of others.
And if need further assistance then you can always ask us!
You can easily add a Profibus card to all V350 and V130 units making them an ideal gateway between Profibus and Modbus or one of the other popular networks that are available. For the price of a gateway device you get a PLC and a display.
We know its the summer Holidays but looking forward we have some places on our next training course in September.
3 day Visilogic training starting on September 17th.
Book early to avoid disapiontment. More information.
"The course was great and the products are great too – I’ll try my best tomorrow to see if there’s any chance of trying to integrate these into the stuff we’re doing –it would certainly make my life easier!" MB (experienced PLC programmer).
Many thanks for the training day.
Really learnt a lot yesterday – I think the “stabilisers” have been taken off the bike – so I need to get some practise with this unit, and try to make it do a few things such as counting, and speed measurement ! DB (first time PLC user).
