The UniStream Control Platform: All-in-One. Modular. Scalable. UniStream™
is the result of over 20 years of PLC development experience combined with the strongest trends in automation today. Your control applications benefit from UniStream’s™ unique modularity, including:
- Powerful, dual CPUs—that translate into faster scan time, up to 2048 I/Os, and over 2MB of operand memory.
- High-quality HMI touch panels in different dimensions—together with an easy-to-use HMI editor for elegant display design.
- Sophisticated, space-saving I/Os—effortless local and remote I/O installation.
Simple or complex, large scale or small, you can tailor UniStream™ to suit your precise application requirements: select your preferred HMI panel, snap a CPU onto its back, and then snap on I/Os to create a compact all-in-one controller. UniStream enables you to:
Cut Programming Time by 50% UniLogic™ software means you ‘write-it-once’, creating code structures that can be used across projects.
Save Time on System Design Easy hardware configuration, plus effortless communications setup--COM tasks reduced to simple configuration.
Scale to your Requirements Expand to meet your application requirements by adding local and remote I/Os.
Slash Costs You benefit from UniLogic Software, Technical Support via phone and email, and access to our Technical forum—absolutely free.
Use a Single Device for Multiple Tasks Feature-rich UniStream allows you to perform many device-dedicated tasks—for example to create data logs, control multiple auto-tuned PID loops, track run-time data with Data Samplers and express the data via Trend graphs, and more.
Communicate with Any Device Plug-and-play support for major fieldbus protocols such as MODBUS, CANopen, and EtherNet/IP--plus the Message Composer, which enables data communications with external devices such as frequency converters, bar-code readers, and printers via virtually any Ethernet or serial third-party protocol. UniStream also supports CAN Layer 2, FTP Client/Server, SMS, email, and communications via GSM/GPRS modem.
Connect: Remotely Access your Data VNC support allows you to access UniStream controllers from PC, cellphone, or tablet. The built-in Web Server also enables remote application monitoring and data editing.
Monitor and Troubleshoot via UniApps™ This expanding library of value-added, PLC-embedded apps gives you the ability to access data, edit it, monitor, troubleshoot, and debug systems locally or remotely using PCs or mobile devices
UniLogic is UniStream’s All-in-One Application Software. Work Less, Do More.
Code Ladder, design beautiful HMI screens and Web pages, configure hardware and communications, and more—using software so intuitive that it can cut your application development time in half. Use UniLogic™ to:
Benefit from Ergonomic Design Everything is visible—all program components are logically organized in the Solution Explorer: Hardware Configuration, Ladder functions, HMI and Webserver screens, Actions, Data Tables, Data Sampling, as well as all aspects of communications from configuration to SMS and emails.
Rapidly Configure Hardware You select the controller model, add I/O and COM modules module either via drag & drop, or by typing part of the module name in the search box and pressing Enter. No addressing is necessary—all of the relevant tags are automatically created by the system.
Speed Ladder Programming Editing Ladder is virtually error-free; drag & drop action automatically snaps elements into place. Raise efficiency via UDFBs (User Defined Function Blocks)—functions you create to perform specific tasks, such as oven control.
Construct Data Tags and Structs Create program-specific lexical tags, assign data types—and build your own arrays and buffers. Use Structs, groups of operands of different data types organized into a single, logical unit. UniLogic automatically creates Structs during the programming process to support hardware configuration, and to support complex functions such as Communications and PID control.
Boost your programming power by creating specific structs to service your program functions and reuse them throughout the program—especially with UDFBs. Define a Struct as internal to a UDFB to allow it to perform as an independent function and be reused in any project.
Design Beautiful HMI Displays HMI screens appear as if they were designed by a graphic artist, when you use UniLogic’s extensive free graphic library and HMI widgets. The simple HMI editor supports layers, image transparency, overlap, and rotation. Video and audio player widgets, complex trend graphs and gauges for the display of run-time values, and data table display, are ready for you to drag & drop onto the screen.
Create Complex Web Pages You do not need to know any HTML at all to design elegant web pages: the drag & drop interface is identical to the HMI editor.
Build-it-Once: the Library Add your UDFBs, HMI screens, and Web Pages to the Library. Drag & drop them as needed— you can import your Library into new projects and it share with others.
Effortless Communications: Configuration not Programming UniStream data communications function independently of Ladder. A single PLC can contain multiple slave definitions—and also multiple master definitions.
Your user experience is greatly enhanced with UniStream™. In addition to the benefits listed above, the physically beautiful design of the hardware components meet the standards usually accorded to consumer products. You also enjoy personalized technical support, and Unitronics’ standard policy of customer care which entitles you to UniStream™ software and utilities—including updates—free of charge.
The combined advantages of the UniStream™ platform result in a superior product offering of great power and flexibility that opens new markets and opportunities for you and your customers.
