The latest member of the award-winning
Vision family is the Vision430™, a
PLC with an integrated 4.3" landscape touchscreen and a variety of onboard
I/O options. The Vision430™ also supports expansion I/O, a mini USB programing port and a Micro
SD card for data logging and back up. The wider dimensions of the new unit and
larger memory for images make the Vision430 a great PLC for OEMs and machine
builders who want a clear, colorful HMI display at a reasonable price.
The Vision430’s advanced features simplify complex control and automation tasks. These features include multiple auto-tuned PID loops for controlling temperature, level and pressure, built in alarm screens and data logging to tables that can be displayed via graphs and trend or various remote access options. The 16-bit, 4.3” 480 X 272 color-touchscreen display and five programmable keys create a powerful HMI for easy application control and management.
The Vision430 is available in several models with different onboard I/O configurations, including digital and analog, high-speed, PT100/Thermocouple, and weight measurement capabilities. Additional I/O expansion modules can be mounted locally or remotely, extending up to 1000m from the controller. These powerful PLCs support a variety of optional communication modules such as Ethernet, Serial, CANbus and Profibus. The units can be remotely accessed using GPRS/GSM/CDMA and other IP networks for data acquisition and program download; they also support e-mail and SMS notification messages for real time remote management. The flat fascia and IP66/IP65/NEMA4X rating make it an excellent fit for the food and pharmaceutical industries—wherever spray or wipe down requirements apply.
The Vision430™ is supported by Unitronics free VisiLogic software, which provides a single, user-friendly environment for hardware configuration, modular Ladder application development, and HMI design. Unitronics also offers free technical support for all of their products.
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.
