Unitronics, an industry leader in the development and manufacture of integrated PLC + HMI controllers, recently launched a new I/O module, offering a variety of I/O options in a single unit. The new module, UIS-WCB2, is compatible with all UniStream™ series Programmable Logic Controllers; the module can either be snapped to the back of a UniStream™ HMI panel or installed on a DIN rail using a local expansion adapter. The UIS-WCB2 has 10 digital inputs, 2 analog inputs, 2 thermocouple inputs, 8 relay outputs, 10 transistor outputs and 2 analog outputs.
The UniStream line is the result of over 20 years of experience with PLC development, combined with the strongest new trends in automation. Unistream™ incorporates a powerful dual CPU, sleek HMI touch panels, and a variety of I/O options. The user can create an all-in-one controller by snapping on a CPU and I/O modules to the HMI of their choice. The award-winning UniStream™ gives OEMs and systems integrators a competitive edge by enabling them to customize their PLC, cut costs and reduce their programming time by 50%.
UniStream™ offers options for RS485, CANopen, UniCAN, and both serial and Ethernet MODBUScommunications. Unistream™ supports Ethernet/IP™ and can be adapted to other third-party protocols; the USB and serial ports support external devices such as modems, printers, barcode readers and more.
UniLogic™, the software for Unitronics’ UniStream line enables users to code Ladder, design HMI screens and Web pages, configure hardware, set up and implement communications, and more in a single programming environment. UniLogic’s efficient features can slash your development time by over 50%.
Unitronics is a pioneer in the manufacturing and design of PLCs with integrated HMI and on-board I/Os - rugged PLC product lines that meet a diverse range of requirements. Program your entire application in a single, intuitive software environment, and benefit from best-of-breed technical support, both provided at no extra cost.

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.
