Series Overview

Vision120™ : PLC with Graphic HMI & On-board I/Os

The Vision120™ is a palm-sized PLC with a built-in Operator Panel. The panel offers a graphic display screen and keypad. This small, powerful device supports up to 256 I/Os (on-board plus expansion modules). A rich range of embedded features include multiple auto-tuned PID loops, internal 120K structured data table, loadcell support, and communication options such as GSM/SMS, MODBUS, CANbus, function blocks that enable Vision to communicate with devices using proprietary COM protocols, plus remote access and data export software utilities.

The Graphic HMI display screen can show images, text, and graphs according to real-time parameters. It can also display graphs based on historical values, to reflect trends of recorded data. Vision120™ supports up to 255 user-designed screens, and up to 24 HMI variables per screen.

The Vision120™ is unique: it enables engineers and systems designers to benefit from a powerful PLC and a graphic HMI – within a bare minimum of budget, cabinet space, and wiring.

Our PLC/HMI integrated devices:

  • save our customers’ programming time, wiring, and cabinet space.
  • cut budget by reducing requirements for additional hardware
  • prevent you from wasting time setting up Panel-PLC communication.

Special Features

Flexible PID

Up to 12 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 (120K RAM and 192K Flash memory), to log dynamic data and store production recipes. 

 

Shaft-encoder Inputs

Use the controller’s integral 10kHz inputs as high-speed counters, frequency measurers, or to directly connect to shaft-encoders. 

 

PWM Outputs

Control stepper motors or PID-based applications, via PWM, with the Vision120's onboard PWM outputs (model-dependent).

 

Easy Scrolling between Recipes

Simply scroll between pre-programmed recipes or menus, using the panel’s arrow keys. 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.

 

Temperature & Weight measurement

Onboard direct temperature inputs (PT100 or Thermocouple) give you the ability to control temperature-based applications,
Loadcell I/O Expansion Modules enable you to hook up weight/strain inputs and achieve accurate measurements—no additional hardware required.
(M91 series only, features are model-dependant) 

 

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 key on the operator panel to enter the PLC’s Information Mode, providing you with powerful diagnostic capabilities.


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

See the Ladder editor

Use the HMI editor to:

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

Additional Communication Protocols
DataXport (to Excel)

GPRS

Use GPRS wireless data transmission services to access your Vision PLC via the Internet. Vision can transmit IP packets of data to a remote PC connected to the Internet via GPRS modem, using a dedicated IP.
GPRS enables you to operate remote PLCs on-line, upload, download, debug programs, and log application data—no wires required.


GSM/SMS

Use your cellular phone to implement real-time remote control in your application. Vision PLCs can send and receive SMS messages to/from any GPRS/GSM/CDMA cellular phone. The SMS-enabled controllers can:

  • Send & receive text and variable SMS messages
  • Route different messages to different phone numbers
  • Auto-acknowledge received messages
  • Answer data requests—from your cell phone, directly back to your cell phone

 

Remote Access

Use your PC to access remote PLCs via network connections, cellular, or landline modems. Unitronics’ unique Remote Access utilities enable you (via Ladder software or independently) to remotely:

  • Operate the controller’s HMI panel via PC
  • Run, reset, or initialize a controller
  • Download, upload, or debug PLC programs
  • Read, write, and store online operand and system values

MODBUS

Use serial MODBUS to create a multi-device network, and establish master-slave communication between Unitronics PLCs and any connected device that supports the MODBUS protocol (SCADA systems, servos and other peripheral devices). Any Unitronics controller in the network may function as either master or slave.


CANbus

CANbus enables inter-PLC data exchange, for implementation of efficient distributed control. Use Unitronics’ CANbus protocol to integrate up to 63 PLCs into one high-speed network. CANopen is also supported


OPC/DDE Server


Unitronics’ OPC/DDE servers enable the PLC to exchange data with external applications. Use it to interface with SCADA systems, or to read/write PLC data from/to Excel, Access, or other Windows-based applications.

OPC/DDE Server software utilities are free downloads.

Additional Communication Protocols

The “Protocols” function block enables the Vision PLC to communicate, via RS232 and RS485, with a broad variety of external devices, such as bar-code readers and servos.


DataXport (to Excel)

This powerful software utility captures PLC application data and exports it to Excel files for logging or processing. Data is exported either directly, via network connection, or via modem in accordance with a pre-set schedule—or instantly exported in response to a user request.

DataXport is a free download
