UniLogic HMI + PLC Software New Release Supports Streaming Video, SNMP, and more
UniStream™ exemplifies Unitronics' all-in-one philosophy: PLC and HMI in one unit with personalized tech support and a unified programming environment, all in one convenient, customer-friendly package. The All-in-One HMI + PLC programming software, UniLogic™ version 1.12.20, introduces features and enhancements that extend the application reach of UniStream™, Unitronics’ award-winning All-in-One HMI + PLC controller.
Machine builders can now display streaming video via an Ethernet networked camera using the RTSP Real
Time Streaming Protocol, enabling users to easily integrate a network camera
and display its video stream output on the elegant UniStream HMI panel.
The addition of SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) enhances UniStream’s broad communication capabilities. UniStream can function as an SNMP Agent and communicate with an SNMP server. In addition, the Ladder Toolbox function SNMP Trap Send, enables UniStream to send SNMP Trap messages to an SNMP server. UniStream supports SNMP Versions 1, 2, and 3.

Webserver’s Drag & Drop editor has added beautifully polished Linear and Circular Gauge widgets, to
display running application values for remote users via Internet browser.
An enhancement of HMI action elements enables programmers to raise popup message boxes when these elements are touched; the message can ask the user a question, give instructions and warnings, and drive actions via buttons.
This version also supports new hardware: a new Uni-I/O™ analog module comprising 8 13-bit analog input channels; with input ranges of 0-10v, 0-20mA and 4-20mA, and a new 3G modem, the Cinterion EHS6T.
A novel feature launched with this version, Hardware Configuration profiles, can save considerable programming. These enable a controller to run an application if it has a physical I/O configuration that is different from the full I/O Configuration in the project. The application will run according to the selected profile without error--even if the application uses data tags of I/Os that belong to the full I/O configuration, but that are not part of the selected profile. This feature can save time for programmers who may need to run the same application in systems containing different I/O and COM module configuration.

MSI Tec Uses Vision570™ to Control the City of Tucson's Natural Gas Engine Well Pumps
Unitronics distributor, MSI Tec, was put to the task of designing a control panel for the natural gas engines at the City of Tucson's well pumps. The control panels would need to be installed at 43 sites around the city. The cost per engine and shaft can be greater than $400,000. Rapid changes in RPM can cause a large column of water to shift up and down quickly and become a very expensive jackhammer, so a robust and reliable controller for these control panels was a necessity.
