Read on to learn about all the features released in this version.
Access SQL databases via IP address or Hostname
Build SQL Queries and execute them via Ladder functions
Connect Data Tables to SQL databases and transfer data via Ladder functions
In your Queries, you can use the syntax, commands, and parameters that are supported by the SQL server.
HMI Screens to
You can now convert existing HMI Screens to Web Pages via mouse click.
You can create your own, reusable HMI Custom Controls, and then drag and drop them from the Solution Explorer, export/import them between projects as .uluce files, or add them to the Library. You can also define tags that are local to a specific Custom Control, these tags will be exported/imported along with the control
HMI e mail
Use this widget to enable your users to add recipients in the To, Cc, and Bcc fields of an e-mail via the HMI keyboard.
Then, when the application sends an e-mail it will be sent to the addresses the user has entered, in addition to the email addresses already defined for that specific email in the project
UniApps: Translated Interface
The UniApps interface has been translated into Russian, Polish, Chinese, (and partially into Czech). To change the UniApps interface, you simply switch the default language and download your application.
Edit email Accounts
If you have more than one Account defined in your project, users can select an account and edit the From, Username, and Password parameters, as well as Server settings
Now when you create formulas, you select the parameter data types. Then, when you place the formula into your Ladder, the parameters appear as input and output fields--just the same as other Ladder functions.
You can now:
- View a Slave's Alias Name
- Edit Slave ID of a serial Master
- Edit IP, Slave IP, and Port in a TCP Master
You can now export MODBUS Slave data to an Excel file spreadsheet for use with other systems such as SCADA
UniLogic brings you highly convenient pin/unpin, undock and float pane options. If you are working with dual monitors, you can even float panes onto different monitor screens. To return the panes, click Layout> Return Layout to Default.
The UID-0808T ‘smart I/O’ module now offers a new Scenario: Measure Length. This enables you to measure the length of items on a moving conveyor belt.
A Scenario is a pre-configured implementation of specific functions. A Scenario displays an illustration that shows the exact functions it will carry out, and the I/Os that the functions will use.
Use Themes to define the appearance of elements as they appear on HMI screens. Selecting System Theme restores system defaults.
Note that selecting a theme does not change elements already placed on screen.
Additional Features and Improvements
You can now set Min/Max values for columns.
ScreenShot System Operands
The System Struct > Panel Events now contains:
A new Screenshot Taken bit. This turns ON when a screenshot is taken. It is reset by the user.

User can now view up to 6 numbers after the decimal point.
New Action: Launch VNC Client
This enables you to load the VNC Client after a power up, or splash screen. This is helpful when using a UniStream as a remote panel for another UniStream controller.
