A full PLC with an integrated 5.7-in. flat fascia, color-touchscreen HMI. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.The Vision570 is a powerful PLC with a built-in, 5.7 in. color touchscreen HMI operator panel. With its IP66 rating, the V570-57-T20B-J model comprises a fully flat fascia, and is perfect wherever spray or wipe-down applications are required. On-board I/Os can be added by simply snapping a module onto the back of the PLC; Snap-in I/O Modules come in several configurations. I/O Expansion modules enable integrating up to 1024 I/Os per Vision PLC. The V570-57-T20B-J offers a rich range of embedded features, such as multiple auto-tuned PID loops, and internal 120K data table for datalogging and recipe programming. Communication options include TCP/IP Ethernet, GSM/SMS, Modbus and CANopen networking plus remote access for data acquisition and program download. 

 

2 MB Ladder code application memory (plus 12 MB for images and 1 MB for fonts) enable the Vision570 to run complex control and automation tasks. The 16 bit-color touchscreen HMI enables the display of color-coded operator instructions and red, attention-grabbing alarm screens. It can also display graphs, according to historical values to reflect trends of recorded data. Display options are almost endless with more than 1,024 user-designed screens, and up to 500 images per application. Soon to come will be a USB programming port. The Vision PLC/Graphic HMI series introduces an unbeatable price-performance ratio, enabling users to enjoy the advanced features of the operator panel and the PLC, while maintaining low budget, reduced programming time and minimum wiring.

It is truly a complete control system.

Works like a paperless recorder using and SD card.

Most bang for the buck!

You can't beat it for the price. Software is easy to use and does both RLD & HMI.
Comes with software and cable for programming.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
