Key Benefits

Up to 5 times faster Beckhoff project implementation

Visual programming -> no low-level PLC programming is needed to complete a SmartUnity-based project. Using the ProjectBuilder tool, you can configure the desired automation logic by point-and-click in days, not months.

True web visualization

SmartUnity is a professional HMI product that has been developed from scratch in compliance with the majority of web-standards, e.g. SVG (vector graphics) and HTML5. Those are the only technologies that are executed by most web browsers (with no additional plug-ins such as Java or Silverlight installed) and are to be supported in the future.


Compared to most alternatives on the market, SmartUnity.nEXT offers optimal value for system integrators who are seeking reasonable price but do not wish to compromise functionality. Our flexible pricing allows you to choose the configuration that will suit your needs the best – without the need to pay for unnecessary options.
