It also supports communication modules like EthernetUnitronics is unveiling a new Vision series all-in-one PLC; this latest member of the award-winning Vision family is the Vision430, a PLC with an integrated 4.3-in. landscape touchscreen and a variety of onboard I/O options. The Vision430 also supports expansion I/O, a mini USB programing port, and a Micro SD card for data logging and backup. The wider dimensions of the new unit and larger memory for images make the Vision430 a great PLC for OEMs and machine builders.

The Vision430's advanced features simplify complex control and automation tasks. These features include multiple auto-tuned PID loops for controlling temperature, level, and pressure; built-in alarm screens; and data logging to tables that can be displayed via graphs and trend or various remote access options. The 16-bit, 4.3-in. 480 x 272 color-touchscreen display and five programmable keys create a powerful HMI for easy application control and management.

The Vision430 is available in several models with different onboard I/O configurations, including digital and analog, high-speed, PT100/Thermocouple, and weight measurement capabilities. Additional I/O expansion modules can be mounted locally or remotely, extending up to 1000 m from the controller. These powerful PLCs support a variety of optional communication modules such as Ethernet, Serial, CANbus, and Profibus. The units can be remotely accessed using GPRS/GSM/CDMA and other IP networks for data acquisition and program download; they also support e-mail and SMS notification messages for real-time remote management. The flat fascia and IP66/IP65/NEMA4X rating make the PLC an excellent fit for the food and pharmaceutical industries-wherever spray or wipe-down requirements apply.

The Vision430 is supported by Unitronics' free VisiLogic software, which provides one user-friendly environment for hardware configuration, modular Ladder application development, and HMI design. Unitronics also offers free technical support for all of its products.
