Vision Automation, specialists in automation control with over 50 years combined experience in programmable logic controller (PLC), instrumentation and control design projects, is the exclusive supplier of Unitronics’ all-in-one PLC+HMI equipment in Southern Africa.
The Unitronics field-proven combined PLC+HMIs automate tens of thousands of installations worldwide in diverse fields, such as the petrochemicals, automotive, food processing, plastics, textiles, energy, environmental, water and wastewater management sectors.
Unitronics automation products are designed to make automation simple, efficient and cost-effective while complying with global UL and CE certification standards. Most products are also IP66/IP65/Nemax4X-rated when panel mounted. All software is free of charge and not subject to licensing subscriptions.
Vision Automation MD Neil Reynolds says Unitronics PLCs are unique as they include HMI in one unit, creating an extremely compact and powerful platform for many applications while taking up much less space. The modular and scalable hardware is backed by efficient programming software that can cut development time in half, thus enabling the execution of projects on time and within budget.
Setting Vision Automation further apart from its competitors is its supply of technical support free of charge. This support is provided telephonically and through team-view sessions both locally and internationally.
Its stockholding also gives the company a competitive edge, with all products locally stocked, guaranteeing on-the-shelf availability and satisfying clients’ needs on demand. The company provides an excellent supply network to the wider industry through system integrators and distributors across South Africa.
Unitronics PLC programming training courses have been offered as a value-added service for ten years from Vision Automation’s Boksburg-based office. This year, the company revamped its training centre to accommodate a greater number of students.
