The Vision700 offers a wide range of I/O configurations that can include digital, high-speed, and analog I/Os modules, as well as PT100/thermocouple and weight/pressure measurement. The Vision700 can use snap-in I/O modules that plug directly into the unit and DIN-rail mounted I/O expansion units. Expansion modules enable 1,000 I/O points locally or remotely at distances of up to 1,000 m.

Communication options include Ethernet, cellular, and industrial protocols such as Modbus, DF1 slave, BACnet, J1939, CANopen, and more. Each unit comes supplied with an Ethernet card and USB programming port; an additional RS232/RS485 port can be added for Profibus and CANbus communications. It also features the "Protocol" utility, which allows the Vision700 to communicate via almost any ASCII protocol. The Vision700 can be directly accessed through the programming port or remotely accessed using GPRS/GSM/CDMA and other IP networks for data acquisition and program download. Another major benefit is the ability to notify supervisors of critical information via e-mail and short-message service (SMS), enabling real-time remote management.

The Vision700 uses the intuitive, all-in-one VisiLogic software, which is designed to enable hardware configuration, PLC, and HMI application programming. VisiLogic includes a full library of drag and drop function blocks for complex automation control tasks, such as PID and a library of industrial images. This intuitive software environment and technical support are provided at no extra cost.
