The Unistream 15" has a color touchscreen with 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and 16M colors. This new 15-in. model rounds out the UniStream line, which already includes 7- and 10-in. units.

The UniStream line is the result of over 20 years of experience with PLC development, combined with the strongest new trends in automation. UniStream is the top of its class with powerful dual CPU, sleek HMI touch panels, and a variety of I/O options. The user can create a customized, all-in-one controller by snapping in the CPU and I/O modules to the HMI of their choice. The UniStream 15" gives OEMs and systems integrators a competitive edge, by enabling them to cut costs, save space and significantly lower programming time.

UniStream provides programmers and machine builders with one of the best user experiences on the market today. The intuitive UniLogic studio software cuts programming time by 50% by predicting the programmer’s intentions and reusing written code. Programmers build a library of user-defined function blocks and HMI screens which can be imported to new projects or shared with other programmers. The software’s predictive capabilities save a significant amount of time defining I/O points, PIDs and other functions. Features like drag and drop, automatic line creation and re-use options for existing code make programming simple and streamlined.

UniStream 15" supports RS485, CANopen, UniCAN, and Modbus (serial and Ethernet). Unistream can also adapt to third-party protocols; the USB and serial ports support external devices like modems, printers, and barcode readers.

Features of the UniStream including a video player, PDF viewer, and remote access capabilities, like support for web server and VNC capabilities, allowing the unit to be viewed and controlled from anywhere in the world.
