Vision range for cloud/iot services


Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

Currently designing a new machine and I would like to use the cloud/iot services provided by unitronics.  I notice all of the controllers with built in cloud are the unistream range,  ideally I would like to stick with visilogic software and say a V1210 controller.  Now,  I see this is possible by using the Unitronics router but my internet searches are not bringing up any concrete information on how this works so hoping to get some assistance with the following questions;

-  Current setup has an existing router that controls the networks DHCP, it also has port forwarding for multiple unitronics controllers to enable remote access & remote operator, this router cannot be changed as it is ISP specific.  So my question is, can the vision with unitronics router work in this situation?  can the unitronics router sit as a device on an existing network? 

- How does the data get transferred to the cloud service via the router from the vision controller?  Is it a data export table or similar?

Thanks in advice.

Hi Sam, I can't answer all the questions, but I'm assuming you've found this initial page and explored around from there....extensively!

For your ISP specific router limitations  situation, do you know that the routers have inbuilt 4G abilities?  This might be the easiest way around the problem.

cheers, Aus

I have a Unitronics router I've been playing with.  It interfaces with Vision series PLCs with a built-in PCOM to UniCloud gateway.  You set up the configuration in the router with register tables on its local network and then you configure UniCloud to come down and scoop up the data.

It can sit as a device inside an existing network.  We set it up to run under our Spectrum cable modem.

Thanks for the feed back guys!

Ausman, yes it's a great feature and would be really nice for something like a remote installation but in this instance I don't believe it's very  practical with the large data requirements of this business plus 4G static IP addresses are becoming increasingly difficult these days with Telstra no longer issuing them and the specialist ISP that do provide them are very expensive on the data front.

Joe, this is exactly how I imagined it would work and fills me with much confidence! looking forward to giving this product a run.

Hello there 🙂
I just thought I would mention that our UCR router now supports MODBUS as well--might be of interest.
