Unitronics introduces JZ20-T40 Jazz2 PLC

August 25, 2014 - Unitronics introduces JZ20-T40 Jazz2 PLC. With 48K (virtual) Ladder Logic memory, 30 times faster performance and a new, built-in mini USB programming port, the new JZ20-T40 allows industrial control processes to enjoy more power, speed and functionality at the same low price as its standard Jazz series counterpart.

Upgrading from the standard Jazz unit to the JZ20-T40 is easy. With the same look, dimensions, wiring and functional behavior, the JZ20-T40 model has complete backward compatibility with the standard Jazz. Upgrading an existing project is hassle-free, and can be completed in 3 easy steps. First, open the application. Second, select the new model in Hardware Configuration. And lastly, save the application.

The JZ20-T40 is perfect for replacing “smart relays”, for applications such as simple autoclaves, rotating tables, and other small-to-medium systems where every penny counts. Its PLC + HMI advantage gives users the opportunity to operate with a minimum of budget, programming time and wiring.

All Jazz and Jazz 2 series controllers include 4 auto-tune PID loops. PID can be set using the onboard temperature/analog inputs and the analog or PWM outputs; all onboard transistor outputs can function as PWM outputs.

Jazz and Jazz 2 units also feature a full-function HMI with a two line LCD text display that shows up to 60 user-designed screens, and a 16-key keypad. The multilingual display supports over 15 languages, and 20 graphic symbols.

Control and communication options make these controllers a big step up from any “smart-relay”. With 24K (Virtual) of Ladder Logic in the standard Jazz series and 48K (Virtual) with the Jazz 2 series, these units provide flexibility, functionality and power. Software functions include: interrupt, loops, math, store and compare. Communications options include SMS messaging, MODBUS networking and PC access via MODBUS or OPC.

Unitronics’ FREE software provides one user-friendly environment for hardware configuration, and HMI design. Unitronics also offers FREE technical support for all of their products.

The JZ20-T40 and Jazz 2 series reduces overall system costs by minimizing hardware requirements, saving cabinet space—and, above all—exempting the user from setting up Panel-PLC communication.
