First introduced in 2017, the multi-touch PLC (programmable logic controller) provides a 10,4-inch display, which enables the use of gestures using two or more points of contact via mobile device. Multi-touch and two-hand gestures—including pinch and zoom, press and hold, double-tap, and swipe–offer increased operating safety and an improved user experience. Features of this all-in-one PLC include media viewers, real-time streaming protocol, a built-in webserver, a variety of I/O options, auto-tune proportional-integral-derivative (PID), and recipe programs and data logging via data tables and sampling. The PLC provides optionally Bacnet, CANopen, Modbus, and Ethernet-IP interfaces. In addition, the CAN-connectable product supports also Unitronics proprietary UniCAN application layer. Other interfaces include serial ports (EIA-232/485), Ethernet, and USB.

“Winning this Engineers’ Choice Award confirms that we are succeeding to create innovative new controllers that fill a real need in the market,” stated proudly Unitronics. “We strive to provide the best possible user experience and industry-leading customer service. We are honored by the consistent, strong support from our end-users.”
