Connect to over 90% of Installed PLCs and Networks anywhere in the World!
The Uticor HMI Touchpanels communicate to more PLCs and Networks than any other HMI. Allen-Bradley panels talk to mostly AB PLCs, Siemens panels talk to their PLCs, Mitsubishi HMIs communicate mostly to their PLCs and so on.
A vast majority of North American Plants still have AB's Data Highway Plus (DH+) or Remote I/O (RIO) networks in place. A significant number has Modbus Plus (MB+) networks and the use of C-C-Link is finding increasing usage in the Japanese Transplants.
Industrial Ethernet is fast becoming the hardware communication platform for an increasing number of plants all over the world. But Ethernet without the proper supporting protocol (software driver) is like having a great vehicle without tires. Not so with Uticor, our "SE" Series, Uticor Windows CE and Uticor Windows HMIs can communicate to all major ethernet networks including but not limited to:
- Allen-Bradley Ethernet I/P to Controllogix and Compactlogix
- DF1 protocol over Ethernet for Micrologix & SLC 500 series PLC's
- Siemens Ethernet ISO over TCP/IP
- Modbus TCP/IP
- SRTP for GE networks
No other Touchpanel HMI manufacturer other than Uticor and Allen-Bradley can communicate over Data Highway Plus (DH+) or Remote I/O.
This is a great feature for OEMs and System Integrators to consider, when selecting a Touchpanel HMI to be their standard HMI.
