Vision350

by Unitronics

This palm-size PLC offers exceptional capabilities and diverse I/O options. Its 3.5” TFT touch screen can show over 1000 displays, with 3.5MB for images & fonts. The Vision350™ supports up to 512 I/Os via on-board and I/O expansion modules. 

The Vision350™ offers a rich range of embedded features such as multiple auto-tuned PID loops, and internal 120K database for datalogging and recipe programming. Communication options include TCP/IP Ethernet, GSM/SMS, MODBUS and CANopen networking plus remote access for data acquisition and program download. 

1MB Ladder code application memory (plus 3MB for images and 512K for fonts) enable the Vision350™ to run complex control and automation tasks. 
The 256-colour touchscreen HMI enables the display of color-coded operator instructions and red, attention-grabbing alarm screens. It can also display graphs according to historical values—to reflect trends of recorded data. Display options are almost endless with more than 1000 user-designed screens, and up to 250 images per application. 

The Vision PLC/Graphic HMI series introduces an unbeatable price-performance ratio, enabling users to enjoy the advanced features of both the operator panel and the PLC, while maintaining low budget, reduced programming time and minimum wiring.

Special Features

  • Flexible PID: Up to 24 built-in PID loops, including internal auto-tune, ramp-soak programmer and bumpless transfer. Use Vision’s PID loops to economically and efficiently combine accurate process control with the flexibility of a PLC.
  • Data Tables: Use Vision’s smart data tables to log dynamic data and to store production recipes. 120K for recipes parameters, datalogs, etc. and 192K for read-only data, ingredient names, etc.
  • Easy Scrolling between Recipes: Simply scroll between pre-programmed recipes or menus, using arrow keys or touchkeys. This enables you to choose and activate a desired task via the HMI - immediately, on-site.
  • Image library: Easily design your graphic displays using the Vision’s extensive image library.
  • Time-based Control: Do you need a specific task to be performed at a specific time and date? Simply mark the hour, date or weekday in the PLC software—and you have created time-based control in 3 clicks.
  • Information mode: Press the touchscreen for a few seconds to enter the PLC’s Information Mode, providing you with powerful diagnostic capabilities.
  • Shaft-encoder Inputs: Use the controller’s integral 10kHz inputs as high-speed counters, frequency measurers, or to directly connect to shaft-encoders.
  • High-speed Outputs: Control stepper motors or PID-based applications, via PWM, with the Vision350's onboard high-speed outputs (model-dependent).
  • Virtual Keypad: Application requires data entry? The Vision's virtual keypad pops up automatically.

Software

All-in-one software enables you to develop your PLC and HMI applications in one environment, establish modem and data communications, test and debug your programs in on-line mode, remotely access your controller, and more.

Use the Ladder editor to:

  • Click-and-drop Ladder elements
  • Build modular programs; create subroutines and call them into your program
  • Benefit from built-in function blocks such as Trends, PID, Loadcell, GPRS, Drum Sequencer, MODBUS Serial/IP, SMS, Protocol Serial/TCP/IP 

Use the HMI editor to:

  • Assign "Touch" properties to any screen element
  • Create and conditionally display operator messages that contain text and images
  • Use colour images and graphs to reflect current variable values and historical trends
  • Assign functions to softkeys and touchscreen elements
  • Create a multilingual interface, that enables instant language switching via the HMI
