  1. Hi people! For those of you who missed the launch of the UniStream PLC...I wrote a blog post Check it out!
  2. Hi people! Our newest product was developed in answer to customers who needed UniStream performance--but who do not require an integrated HMI panel. >drum roll< Meet the UniStream PLC This unique PLC, unlike other UniStream controllers, does not have an integrated HMI panel--however, it supports HMI applications just like any other UniStream. The secret is Virtual HMI. This means that you can mount the controller on a DIN rail in a cabinet, and access it from: any mobile device that supports VNC the new UniStream Display (USL) any UniStream Modular HMI panel (USP) any UniStream Built-in (on the panels integral to the device) The UniStream PLC is a line of PLCs with built-in I/Os that may be mounted on a DIN-rail. Unlike other UniStream Controllers, does not include a built-in HMI screen. This PLC is appropriate for applications that need UniStream power and functionality, but that either do not require an HMI application, or that require a distributed HMI. All UniStream PLCs support Virtual HMI--they can display HMI screens which you design in UniLogic in exactly the same way as for any other UniStream controller. You can display the HMI screens on: UniStream Displays (USL), included in this release. UniStream Displays are a series of color touch-screens that support VNC. UniStream Modular HMI panels (USP) UniStream Built-in (on the panels integral to the device) Any device screen that supports VNC The series is available in three versions: Pro, Standard, and Basic. When you select your UniStream model in Hardware Configuration, only relevant options are available in UniLogic. Differences between B10, B5, and B3 Feature B10 Pro B5 Standard B3 Basic I/O Expansion via Uni-I/O Yes No Remote I/O Expansion via Ethernet I/O Adapter (URB) Up to 8 1 VFD 32 2 MicroSD Yes No* Add-on COM modules 3 2 System Memory 6GB 3GB 3GB MODBUS Slaves Unlimited Up to 8 Ethernet/IP Scanners 16 1 Ethernet/IP Adapters 32 8 Web Server Yes No No SQL Client Yes No No MQTT Yes PID Loops 64 2 Data Sampler/Trends Yes No CSV files: creating/ reading Yes No FTP, server/client Yes No Saving Data Tables to SD Yes No* Screenshots Yes No Sending email attachments Yes No USB device (programming port) Yes No** -------- Check out the product page, view installation guides, here. ----------------------------------From our official press release: The UniStream PLC is based on proven, award-winning UniStream hardware and UniLogic software that enhances your ability to implement all of the control tasks required by your machine or process application. A multi-function controller that matches a vast range of application requirements, the UniStream PLC provides users with advanced communication support, including Industry 4.0, and introduces a unique concept in Virtual HMIs. Virtual HMI – A New Approach to Automation UniStream PLC combines two technologies in one product: Virtual HMI– As an Industry first, the PLC stores and runs the program logic as well as the HMI user application within the PLC itself. This brings you a unique advantage: you can view and operate your machine, or access your process via any mobile phone, PC, or remote display device. Controller Hardware – The powerful controller has built-in I/Os that can be expanded to more than 2,000 I/Os, including digital, analog, high-speed and temperature, as well as communication modules supporting Modbus, Ethernet/IP, MQTT, SQL, SNMP, and more. Along with the UniStream PLC, Unitronics has also released a line of compatible displays, offering customers a full package for varied PLC and HMI requirements. Award-winning Programming Software UniStream PLC is backed by UniLogic® all-in-one programming software, which cuts programming time up to 50%, and includes Built-in Trends and Gauges, auto-tuned PID, data sampling, complex data tools, Recipes and more. UniLogic offers OEMs and System Integrators a faster and easier programming solution as all tasks can be programmed using the same software environment. Users can build the PLC application, design HMI screens, create web pages in multiple languages, and save it all in a library to reuse in other projects. The best of two worlds: Robust PLC Hardware with Virtual HMI With its robust hardware and extremely efficient time-saving programming software, the new controller benefits users in multiple ways, simplifying and speeding projects, while offering outstanding configuration versatility. “Unitronics is well-known for outstanding innovation, and with our new UniStream PLC, we’ve done it again,” says Boaz Karmy, VP Sales and Marketing, at Unitronics. “Richly featured and powerful, yet compactly designed, the UniStream PLC raises the bar by providing unique Virtual HMI features and versatile hardware configuration, using the same programming environment.” –
  3. Ok, @benS, @Flex727. I am happy to report that this issue has been fixed in the OS that will be released with our next version--after the next release, simply update the OS. Thanks for report, and Flex, thanks for the heads-up on this one
  4. Absolutely! Sorry for the long lag--it was the spring holiday cycle...now back to work!
  5. Heh. The designer who made it is looong gone. I'll see if I can jog the memories of people who have been here longer than my 21 years...
  6. heh--@hotwires, I remember that! And you're right. R&D is in Israel, my buddies here stomp bugs! Generally, bug fixes are released along with versions. Service packs are usually to address Windoze versions--they change stuff, we have to update to support it, and we include any fixes that we have made along the way. as far as the timeline--less than a week isn't gonna happen.
  7. Why I disable automatic updates to Windoze...
  8. Nah. But very cool--thanks for reporting it! This happens every so often. Now I'm thinking of doing a blog post called Accidental Sightings, or Unitronics in the Wild :-)
  9. As the only native English speaker in our R&D department, I've heard some doozies--but that is definitely one for the annals! For a number of years, the head of Support here was a guy who spoke 6 languages. English was his 5th, followed by Hebrew. Some of the constructions he would come up with in English would have me ROTFLMAO--the meaning would be clear, though, I must say. I'd see a thread of his that was clearly started by an Asian language speaker using a translation tool - but the beauty of it was that as engineers, they understood each other .
  10. I am curious - do these two sentences mean exactly the same thing to my fellow English speakers? The software slashes setup and programming time. The software slashes commissioning and programming time! Thanks for your input
  11. I just put together 5 boxes of bound books to donate--I read e-books almost exclusively, I need space...but I haven't gotten rid of anything near and dear to my heart. Which means that you will NOT find any of my SF titles in those boxes!!!!
  12. LOL!!! I love you guys. If I ever win the lottery, I'm flying you all to headquarters for beer and burgers! Here is an even older logo...
  13. Yes--it has happened before--I fixed it. I'm really sorry--I tried something this time that I hope will prevent this from ever happening again. .chm Help is a Microsoft invention, and the compiler hasn't been updated--or bug-fixed--since 2012. The database behind the Help sometimes corrupts, and loses objects--even though it compiles without error. I have a feeling it is due to nesting...anyway, I rebuilt some stuff. Hope it fixes the issue once and for all.
  14. Hello there I just spoke with the head of the Support department (8:30 on a Sunday is the beginning of the working week here in sunny Israel) He asked if you were running VisiLogic as an administrator (all of our programs should be run this way. If so, and you are experiencing these difficulties at any rate--please contact Support, either by writing to support@unitronics,com or by opening a ticket here: https://support.unitronics.com/index.php They are trying to reproduce the problem as we speak--we will be releasing an official version in the near future, so if there's a bug, we are going to stomp it immediately. We apologize for the inconvenience, and thanks for reporting your problem
  15. Thanks for tagging me. @Ausman I'll check into a re-design of the download page.
  16. Lo siento esta función aún no está lista, pero está en la lista para el desarrollo futuro
  17. Hi guys! We don't deal with software configuration in the product sheets, only in the Help. The Help does show the frequency range/units, and does show that you need to link an MI. Hope this helps
  18. Hi :-) I see that the Help topic Vision700 - Using Ethernet does not have a specific reference to Keep Alive for V700. I'll look into this.
  19. oh--sorry! My eye skipped right to EDS--somehow I did not see the Ethernet/IP part. I will submit a feature request--thanks!
  20. Thanks--I will submit this as a feature request!
  21. Hi--sorry for the delay in my reply! Ask and ye shall receive 😃 Seriously, if you haven\t found it already, here it is"
  22. Hi--I'm sorry, I missed this when you posted it ! Do you have an image, or a link to show what you mean? I fear I am rather old-fashioned--I'm not familiar with what you describe
