This is an open invitation for you to suggest new ideas and thoughts for Unilogic UDFB's.
It is very important for us to keep track of our customers needs. As part of this agenda we want to create and develop useful tools for your benefit.
These UDFB's will be attached to the next releases of Unilogic.
Please feel free to suggest any idea that seems useful.
Samba™ is an all-in-one palm-sized HMI + PLC + onboard I/Os.
As a trendsetter in the field of all-in-one PLC + HMI integrated controllers, Unitronics has specifically developed Samba for applications that require PLC control, but that are limited by budget to simple text displays.
System integrators and OEMs often develop applications that require PLC control, but that settle on simple text displays due to limited budget.
Samba's beautiful HMI 3.5” QVGA 16-bit touchscreen enables data entry
