All-in-one PLC with integrated HMI and I/O

Unitronics‘ All-in-one PLC + HMI lines offer control functionality for all sizes of machines, applications or retrofits, from the simplest to the most complex. With self-tuning PID, data logging and recipes, broad communication support that includes the ability to communicate in any third-party proprietary protocol, and a wide range of built-in HMI panels, Vision® & Samba® controller lines can meet all requirements, cost-effectively.

All models can be accessed remotely and securely via Unitronics utilities for programming and troubleshooting, making them suitable for installation in the most remote locations.

Plus, it’s easy to integrate these controllers into UniCloud, Unitronics’ Do-it-yourself, no-code IIoT Cloud platform designed for OEMs and machine builders, via UCR routers.

Vision® for complex control

The Vision series of award-winning controllers offers a full range of powerful all-in-one PLCs and HMIs.
These controllers are real workhorses: reliable, versatile and field-hardened – installations made using the first Vision models released in 2002 are still going strong after two decades!

From palm-sized controllers with text or graphics displays to the powerful Vision1210® with high-quality 12.1″ color touchscreen, supporting up to 1000 I/O points, Vision offers:

  • Auto-tune PID, up to 24 independent loops
  • Recipe programs and data recording via data tables
  • MicroSD card – log, backup, clone and more
  • I/O, embedded and expandable: digital, analog, high speed, PWM/HSO, temperature, weight
  • Multilingual display
  • Integrated alarm screens
  • COM support: MODBUS, CANopen, CANlayer2, UniCAN, BACnet, KNX and M-Bus via gateway, FB to support any 3rd party protocol
  • Advanced communications: web server, email and SMS, 4G modem support, remote access utilities

Samba – For small machines

Samba, an all-in-one controller with on-board HMI and I/O, fills a growing niche: budget-conscious OEMs who need compact controllers for simple machine control, but want the competitive advantage of an elegant color touch HMI panel. Available with 3.5, 4.3, or 7-inch color touchscreens, Samba offers rich functionality, including:

  • 2 self-tuning PID loops
  • PSTN control
  • Data logging and recipes and more.
  • I/O options: digital, analog, high speed, PWM/HSO, temperature, weight measurement
  • COM support: MODBUS, CANopen, CANlayer2, UniCAN, FB to support any 3rd party protocol
  • Advanced communications: web server, email and SMS, 4G modem support, remote access utilities

The flat fascia and IP66/IP65/NEMA4X rating make Samba an excellent choice for food and pharmaceutical industrieswherever spray-on or wipe-off requirements apply.
Priced on par with a smart relay, Samba offers great looks at an incredible price.
