  1. Hi people! The team has been hard at work—and here is the result: now, you can easily integrate any PLC—or other devices that talk MODBUS, such as sensors—into UniCloud. Our safe, secure, sophisticated IIoT platform is now available to any machine, process, or application—whether based on Unitronics' products or not—that connects to UniCloud via Unitronics’ UCR routers. People, I want to tell you that in the world of IIoT, UniCloud is a total game-changer. IIoT Cloud platform implementation generally requires vast resources, time, and money. This has pushed Cloud services out of the reach of most machine builders and OEM--until now. UniCloud is a completely different, simpler solution—the only DIY Cloud platform that requires no coding, zero Cloud expertise, and no knowledge of IT. Why use Cloud services at all? Cloud, IoT, IIoT, Industry 4.0--the industry trade magazines have been publishing articles with these buzzwords for years. It’s a bit confusing, but in reality, there is only one reason for you to ‘Go Cloud’: To increase PROFIT. When you, the Machine Builder—or your business manager—can: Provide customized dashboards to collect and analyze machine data Cut Maintenance Costs with Predictive Maintenance Use IIoT technology to Increase productivity Set and measure KPIs, and use data to improve performance When you can do all this easily, you can improve your organizational efficiency—and increase profit. How is UniCloud different from other IIoT Cloud platforms? IIoT Cloud platforms are notorious for needing major resources, time, and money to develop. Plus, they are complicated to define, produce, maintain, and modify. This is the main reason for the reluctance of OEMs to implement IIoT Cloud—even as they realize the relevance and importance of their business. UniCloud is a game-changer—it is based on a simple, Do-It-Yourself paradigm. UniCloud’s product manager, Ronny Or, lists a few of the unique attributes of the UniCloud platform: Independence for the OEM With UniCloud, you can do it all independently—you can 'Do-it Yourself' quickly, easily, and without any need of IT specialists, Cloud experts, graphic designers—or any previous experience. Reduced costs The ability to 'Do-it Yourself' means you don't need to pay staff to do it for you. Reduced time drain There is no hassle--no running back and forth coordinating various specialists and professionals—and UniCloud’s drag & drop, no-code design means that you can do it yourself fast. Easy maintenance and modifications You can easily restructure your organization—for example, add staff and assign them roles, add customers and create personalized dashboards for them. ‘Go Cloud’ in 30 minutes? How is this possible? The UniCloud claim is that a user can have a working, live, fully-functional dashboard that harvests, analyzes, and displays data—in less than 30 minutes. Unitronics made this possible by using the same approach to Cloud platforms that our R&D department uses for control and HMI software development. The result is a simple, drag & drop paradigm that gives UniCloud a simple, easy-to-use interface that enables any machine builder to reap the benefits of IIoT for their business. Try it yourself and see the simplicity—no charge, no credit card required! Start Free Trial--no obligation or credit card required.
  2. Thanks for reporting the solution 🙂
  3. Oh good lord--I'd missed this!!!🤣
  4. wow. I watched about 4 minutes of that, which is something of a record for me in terms of video-clip viewing. That was impressive.
  5. @Ausman, you almost killed me with that--especially the last one!!! Thanks, cobber :-)
  6. @Joe Tauser, I'll consult further--not sure what to do here.
  7. @Aus, I'll look into it--I'll see what Support thinks, thanks for the heads-up 🙂
  8. @Ausman@Flex727 Done--the developer just told me, you'll see it in the next release 🙂
  9. Hi people! I love this! One of our community gurus, @Ausman, started the topic linked below--take a look, and join in!
  10. @Ausman@Flex727, your requests are in the To-do list--no timeline, but they are there 🙂
  11. I will forward this to the team--will let you know what they say. Thanks 🙂
  12. Nothing to do with controllers or odd misinterpretations of binary digits, but one of the funniest things I've seen in a while. Put down your coffee. You have been warned!
  13. @cbryanCurious--what sector are you in, are you an integrator, a machine manufacturer?
  14. In the early 90's in Israel, many people used computers without hard disks--had to stick a big old floppy disk in there to use it....
  15. Slide rule!!!! Regarding calculators--in the 70's, calculators existed in Brooklyn. We were allowed to use them, but they were expensive and many of us in high school did without. Those who had, shared them. In my physics class, my classmate Heath invented a novel method of cheating--passing calculators with the number of the question, getting it back with what he hoped was the right answer (no, I didn't participate--I preferred to fail, if fate would have it!). (I still remember that teachers opening riff, as soon as everyone sat down on the very first day of class: 'if I drop a baby and a locomotive out of this here window, which is gonna hit the ground first?')
  16. Hi Aus--apologies, we have just finished our spring holiday cycle here in Unitronics-land; I was not here last week. The forum is externally hosted; there may have been some update running or somesuch. Now, meaning today, I don't see anything out of place... Great thread, btw!
  17. I checked--there haven't been clusters of reported failures, so it does not appear that the problem lies with the controllers.
  18. <OffTopicMiniRant> Windows10! One of the updates killed the ability for me to use a headset microphone on my desktop PC. I spent a few hours trying to work out fixes, updated drivers...then gave up, Too much of a time sink, easier just to use another device (phone, tablet, laptop...) Very annoying, though.
