Here is a quick recap of the latest and greatest updates to our UniStream controller line.
We’ve rounded out the HMI panel offerings with a big, beautiful 15.6” screen, added ‘wide’ I/O modules, and boosted your potential application range with a new thermocouple I/O module.
There are some incredibly cool features now available: a powerful, embedded Web Server together with a drag & drop web page editor, CAN Layer 2, UniCAN, a built-in CANbus sniffer, and a UniBACnet Configurator.
UniLogic software is now up to 1.9.19, paired with the UniStream OS version 1.9.6.
USP-156-B10: 15.6” HMI panel
This quality HMI panel measures 15.6”. In terms of I/O and COM module capacity, it is identical to the UniStream 10.4”.
This is a line of I/O modules that are compatible with the UniStream™ control platform. ‘Wide’ modules are 1.5 times as wide as standard Uni-I/O™ modules, and comprise more I/O points in less space. Up to two wide I/Os may be snapped onto the back of the UniStream 7”.
Standard-sized I/Os and Wide I/Os may all be included in a single configuration.
There are currently two modules available:
- UID-W1616T - 6 isolated pnp/npn digital inputs, 16 isolated relay outputs
- UID-W1616R offers 16 isolated pnp/npn inputs, and 16 isolated relay outputs.
UIS-08TC Temperature I/O Module
This standard-sized Uni-I/O™ module provides 8 thermocouple inputs supporting the following input types and ranges: J, K, T, E, R, S, B, N, C, and Voltage
Embedded Web Server + Web Page Editor
The powerful, built-in Web Server enables multiple users to simultaneously access webpages within a UniStream controller. Web page access may be controlled by password, permitting users to view and/or edit data via any browser and from any smart phone or tablet.
Designing web pages in the editor is as easy as building HMI pages, and requires no knowledge of HTML. The programmer drags and drops elements from the Toolbox onto the web page, and customizes them via the element properties.
The drag & drop interface has the same look-and-feel as the HMI Editor.
CAN Layer 2 Ladder Functions
The CAN Layer 2 functions enable you to support any CANbus protocol, according to the CANbus V2.0 standard.
A UniStream controller can both send and receive standard messages with 11-bit identifiers, as well as extended messages with 29-bit identifiers
UniCAN, Unitronics' proprietary CANbus protocol, enables fast data communications.Via UniCAN, a Unitronics' PLC can exchange data with up to 60 other networked PLCs.
UniCAN Communications are determined by configuration rather than programming. Note that UniCAN also enables easy data transfer between UniStream and Vision controllers.
The embedded CANbus Sniffer enables you to easily monitor CANbus communications and boosts your troubleshooting capabilities.
UniStream controllers now support a BACnet to MODBUS Gateway device, available as GW-BAC1.
Use the UniBACnet Configurator, located under the new Tools tab on the UniLogic ribbon, to create a configuration file for the BACnet to MODBUS Gateway. Download this file to the GW-BAC1 in order to set up communications between a UniStream controller and BACnet slave devices.
