    1. UniLogic 2021-- UniCloud IIoT Cloud Platform, EtherCAT & more!   (120,072 visits to this link)

      UniLogic’ first 2021 release supports UniCloud, Unitronics complete, no-code IIoT Cloud Platform specifically designed for the OEM and Machine Builder. End-to-end, scalable and secure, UniCloud enables you to easily build customized Dashboards and use them to harvest, analyze, and leverage data to boost efficiency, trouble-shoot problems, and implement preventative maintenance—reducing your management overhead and leaving you time to grow your business.
      You do not need programming or cloud development skills in order to commission and deploy UniCloud—you can benefit from IIoT services, increase your revenues, and save on costs without relying on programmers and cloud professional staff.

      This release also introduces UniStream 'Cloud' controllers.  UniStream 'Cloud' controllers are an industry first: a PLC with built-in, no-cost cloud services. Each UniStream Cloud PLC is supplied with a pre-paid 5-year Start-up Subscription plan-there is no monthly subscription fee.

      UniCloud is also supported by Vision Enhanced, Samba, and will soon be supported by Jazz. While UniStream connects directly to UniCloud, note that other controllers connect via Unitronics secure routers.

      To learn more, and take advantage of our free trial offer, click here: https://unitronics.cloud/product/

      This release also supports EtherCAT, the industrial fieldbus protocol that drives powerfully precise processes in factories across the globe, via our new EtherCAT Master module. The new module enables you to integrate:

      ·         Unitronics EtherCAT Servo Drives
      When you use a Unitronics drive, EtherCAT data exchange is transparent. You can implement motion using UniLogic's Motion function blocks. A single UniStream can support up to 8 drives. Plus, you can easily adapt any Motion application based on CANopen to EtherCAT simply by making a few changes in Hardware Configuration.

      ·         Unitronics URB EtherCAT adapter
      Via an EtherCAT URB adapter, you can communicate with Unitronics URB Ethernet-based I/O modules

      ·         Third-party EtherCAT slave devices
      You can import a device's definition file, and exchange data via Ladder using SDO requests.

      A single UniStream can support one EtherCAT master module, which can support a total of 32 EtherCAT nodes. This includes EtherCAT Servo drives, Remote URB adapters, and third-party EtherCAT devices.

      *EtherCAT is currently supported by USC-B5 and USC-B10 only.

      One of our community members, @YINGD suggested that we open up a forum section dedicated to HMI Design, and our long-time MVP @Flex727seconded the suggestion --so we did!
      Here is the main section, with sections for UniLogic and VisiLogic:

      VFD, inverter, AC drive - engineers call these adjustable speed drives by different names, but all use them to control motor speed  and torque.
      Now, you can obtain your VFDs from the same supplier as your PLC + HMI controllers. Unitronics VFDs can be used as a stand-alone product, or as part of a complete All-in-One package with our PLC+HMI controllers: UniStream®, Vision™ and Samba™.
      This simplifies workflow by enabling you to:
      Obtain your VFDs, PLC + HMI controllers and related components, as well as technical support, from a single supplier. Operate your VFD directly from the controller’s HMI panel Use the same programming software as the PLC control and HMI application, to: Set-up and configure multiple VFDs in a snap Monitor and debug your VFD  Remotely Access your VFD For more information, check out the VFD page in our website:

      Simplicity translates into solid profit
      Unitronics  innovative approach that brings time-saving benefits to motion control:
      ·      No coding needed: Ready-Made Motion code, provided with every purchase, enables Unitronics’ customers to test their completed system; this code can be opened and adapted to other applications via PLCopen standard functions
      ·      One software for all project needs: set up and program PLC, HMI, Servo, VFD, and I/O—no need to struggle with multiple software tools to build an application with up to 8 axes
      ·      Automatic communication setup: absolutely seamless
      ·      Minimal room for error: our software automatically analyzes mechanical properties and recommends safe values for the user application
      ·      Diagnostics: our software includes a built-in powerful, high-speed scope to view servo run-time performance
      ·      Tune the system: using only one single parameter
      ·      Embedded Diagnostic tools: no PC needed. Via an HMI panel – or a virtual HMI screen on their mobile device – users can:
              -      Set motion parameters
              -      Monitor Axis behavior and I/Os
              -      Execute movements, such as Point-to-Point, Jog, and Homing
