    This version introduces UniStream 5”—a multi-function programmable logic controller in a superbly compact hardware profile: PLC+HMI+I/O built into one unit.

    This All-in-One controller brings you all of the power and functionality of UniStream, the same elegant, color-touch HMI panel, and a range of built-in I/O configurations. It is available in two versions: UniStream 5" (B5) and UniStream 5" Pro (B10). Both series support important fieldbus protocols such as MODBUS, Ethernet/IP and CANopen, as well as SNMP, VNC, FTP, SMS, email, and communications via GSM/GPRS modem.  The Pro version also offers a built-in Webserver, audio jack, video support–and SQL, a plus for OEMs facing Industry 4.0.

    Other features in this release include additions to SD Card Management, and a new level to UAC control.

    Read on to learn about the new version features, as well as bug fixes.

    Hardware Configuration

    UniStream 5”

    UniStream 5" CX Modules

    A new line of I/O adapters and COM modules, the CX series, has been created. These are compatible with the UniStream 5":

    ·         UAG-CX-xxx I/O Expansion Adapters plug into the UniStream 5” I/O Expansion Jack, and enables you to link standard Uni-I/O modules to the controller. Installation instructions and guidelines on installation and number of supported I/O modules are in the product’s Installation guides and technical specifications.

    ·         Three UAC-CX-xxx COM Modules are now available:
    - UAC-CX-01RS2 offers one RS232 port
    - UAC-CX-01RS4 offers one RS485 port
    - UAC-CX-01CAN offers one CANbus port.
    Installation instructions and further information are in the product’s Installation guides and technical specifications.

    Hardware Configuration: New Design

    Hardware Configuration has been completely redesigned, to allow for the new UniStream 5 series.

    Note that the controller you select modifies the option that UniLogic presents for I/O and COM modules, and shows only the options that are relevant for your selected controller.

                   

     

    Additional Features and Improvements

    SD Card Management

    Via SD Management, you can limit the number of files; when the limit you define for a specific file type is exceeded, the controller will automatically delete 1/8 of the oldest files for that feature.

    UAC: Management Level

    Management Level enables you to set the ability of group members to edit the properties of other members. Members of the New Super Group level can edit any and all properties of Users or Groups in UniApps, including the properties of other Super Group members. This can be very helpful in cases where Admin passwords have been forgotten.

    Data Table Values

    Three new features have been added:

    ·         Read/Write Data Tables values To/From PLC
    Link to your PLC, and then click the appropriate button.

    ·         Export/Import range
    Drag your cursor across the desired cells to highlight them, and then click the appropriate button.

    ·         Copy to Clipboard
    You can now highlight a range of cell, and use Ctrl +C to copy the values to Windows Clipboard.

    Note that as of this version, you must double-click a cell in order to view the values. This was done to enable you to click once in a cell, and drag your mouse to highlight a range.

     

    Passwords: Import Export via UniApps

    When you import or export an application via System>User App Upgrade>, you can now include the VNC passwords.

    VNC Password

    You can now choose whether or not to enable a VNC server Password.

  3. VisiLogic:9.8.64 - Link to mobile app, Ladder: 2x the Space!   (10,065 visits to this link)

    This major release introduces a number of new features that will boost your productivity, such as wide Ladder nets and dynamic I/O configurations.

    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.

    The following list is a partial list - for the complete rundown, read the version changes at"https://unitronicsplc.com/software-visilogic/

    New Features

    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.

    Ladder:
    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.

  4. New!!! ***** U90 Ladder*****   (4,145 visits to this link)
