I4 Automation is introducing the Vision1040 PLC and integrated HMI from Unitronics, which allows machine manufacturers and system integrators to add full PLC functionality to their systems.

The Vision1040 PLC features a 10.4in colour touch screen equipped with a nine-programmable-function key display.

Users are offered up to 1,024 I/O options, a USB programming port, data logging and built-in recipe capability, while maintaining a low budget, reduced programming time and minimum wiring, according to Unitronics.

The Vision1040 can use 24 auto-tuned PID loops to control temperature, level and pressure, while the 16-bit, 65,000 SVGA colour touch screen displays data, colour trend graphs and alarm screens.

Display options include more than 1,000 user-designed screens with up to 500 images per application.

The memory holds 2MB of application logic, plus 1MB for fonts and 80MB for images.

Features include Micro SD card memory storage for data logging and back up, complete PLC cloning and more.

The controller scans 1K of a typical application in 9us, making it suitable for rapid-response applications such as packaging machines.

Communication options include TCP/IP Ethernet, cellular and industrial protocols such as MODBUS, DF1 slave, J1939, CANopen and more.

The Vision1040 can be ‘taught’ to communicate via almost any device-based protocol.

As with other members of the Vision series, Vision1040 supports digital, high-speed and analogue I/Os, as well as direct temperature measurement inputs via snap-in and remote I/O modules.

Unitronics offers the free Visilogic software for hardware configuration, modular Ladder application development and HMI design, including a colour library of industrial images.
