ECT-16 - Industrial PLC Workstation
The ECT-16 fulfills the need for a powerful yet cost effective operator interface system.
Exor Internationalfulfills the need for a powerful yet cost effective operator interface system. Displays are sixteen lines of a pixel based LCD in passive color. These pixel addressable displays allow graphic capabilities with our Designer for Windows software package. Each page can contain 16 lines. Each line can contain up to 40 characters. Brightness control is provided to adjust the display for easy viewing under nearly any condition.

Display Variables
PLC internal variables can be shown on any of the many display pages. The number of variables that can be viewed at one time is limited only by the display size. UniOP also provides scaling (linear conversion) of the displayed data. The final value can then be shown in several useful formats including bargraph, date, time, decimal, bit, hexadecimal, floating point, and string. Data entry with valid range verification is also available for each data type.

Data Entry
The analog touchscreen adds the ability to create touchcells as small as a single character or as large as the entire screen. UniOP also features an internal battery-backed real time clock. Time and date information from the clock are periodically updated in the PLC to enable processing based on time-of-day, day-of-week or any other period.

An eight-level password protection scheme protects critical system features from undesired access.

UniOP can monitor and display up to 1024 alarms. Attributes and unique messages for each alarm can be defined. Operator acknowledgment can also be required. The last 256 alarm events detected by the PLC are retained in an internal event list. This list can be viewed on screen or printed on a serial printer to obtain a permanent record.

Custom display screens are developed using the UniOP Designer for Windows programming software. Your completed project file can be downloaded to the display through the serial port and permanently stored in a Flash EPROM.

Graphic Capabilities
Exor Internationalallows you to display bitmap graphics. These bitmap graphics can be created with any Windows based software package capable of BMP format.

Keyboard Macro Editor
A feature that allows you to configure your touchcells to do a variety of functions locally in the UniOP. For example: turning pages, setting attributes, setting LEDs, writing to PLC, going to alarm list, uploading or downloading a recipe set and many more. This can save many hours of ladder logic programming.

This feature allows you to create a recipe with up to 255 parameter sets for each page of the project file. UniOP has a total of 16K reserved for recipe storage. You can upload or download a parameter set from or to the PLC. Once a parameter set has been downloaded to the PLC, the data contained within the parameter set can be modified.

UniNET Network
The UniNET network allows you to design networks of varying configurations; from two panels with one PLC to multiple panels with multiple PLCs. Data can be written to or retrieved from the PLCs in many different locations at one time. The UniNET network creates a bridge between UniOP panels which allows data to be shared by all PLCs in the network, regardless of the type or manufacturer.
