UniLogic software and Vision


Recommended Posts

  • MVP 2023

I participated in yesterday's Webinar on intro to UniLogic software. Holy cow is that an improvement over VisiLogic! I understand that this programming software cannot be used for the Vision products, but I wonder if it really is that difficult to include a compiler for Vision products or is this a marketing decision to encourage adoption of the new product line? Our company has a solid platform using Vision and moving to the new line is probably not in the cards for now, but I sure would like to be programming in UniLogic.


Anyway, I would like to congratulate you on the development of UniLogic. It really looks like you managed to incorporate most of your customer requests for updates to VisiLogic.

Just from what I've done so far, the new platform is light-years beyond Visilogic.  It takes real "getting used to", and that's where I'm at with it, exploring capabilities, importing my favorite tricks and such.


To directly answer your question - I don't see how UniLogic could be backported to the Vision series.  Just as a single proof, look at the difference in Modbus TCP - controlled at the OS level, configured-not-coded, and theoretically no upper limit to the number of simultaneous connections (the Creators recommend 32, that's the most they've tried in-house).


That right there makes it entirely incompatible with Vision.  Heck, the Modbus FBs don't even exist in the new platform - it's all automated.

Guys, I have one PC at home that runs Vista--don't get me started  :P


Tim is exactly right regarding VisiLogic.


We believe that Vision and VisiLogic are great products that fit many requirements for many applications with a good price/performance ratio. The products will still have features added according to market requests, but they are fairly mature.


Flex, I hear you--basically, your request amounts to a re-engineering of VisiLogic so that you'd have the fast programming, tag addressing, UDFBs, etc, correct? I'll put in your request, but...well, this is a enormous task; so I dunno... :mellow:

Yes, Cara, I know re-engineering VisiLogic is not really feasible. That's why I was a little hopeful that it might be easier to just create a vision compiler for UniLogics. Sure, compilers aren't easy as pie, but people create compilers for multiple platforms all the time. Makes no difference, I said this many times before, Unitronics has the best PLC programming environment in the business - I wish everything in my life worked as well.
