Maple Systems has added two touch-screen graphic HMIs to its range of operator interface terminals.

The HMI5043T is a compact 4.3in 16:9 widescreen model and the HMI5104TH is a larger 10.4in high-resolution unit.

Both units have an Ethernet port and VNC server that enables the user to remotely monitor and control the HMI from any location via desktop computer, laptop, mobile phone or any other smart device that has internet connectivity.

This VNC remote monitoring of the Maple HMI means users can remotely control the PLCs and controllers that command automation process.

The 16:9 widescreen high-resolution display of the 4.3in model is said to offer a viewing area that is 30 per cent larger than a standard screen of similar size.

This means more room for graphics, text and buttons.

The 4.3in unit displays up to 65,000 sharp colours on its high-brightness, high-contrast, backlit TFT display with 480 x 272 resolution.

The 10.4in unit has a 600 x 800 pixel screen resolution.

Both units feature a 32-bit RISC processor, 128MB of Flash storage and 64MB of data memory.

Connectivity of these units includes USB, Serial and Ethernet ports.

There is also support for Allen-Bradley Ethernet/IP, GE, Siemens, Omron, Modbus TCP/IP and many more.

Each unit contains an analogue touch screen with infinite touch-response points.

Other features include online/offline simulation, alarm and recipe management, data logging and sampling, true-type fonts and multiple languages with international characters.

The compact HMI5043T is suitable for OEM applications.

It works well as an affordable replacement for analogue controls, lights and switches.

It is also suitable for situations where logistics require a small cost-effective display with advanced capabilities normally found in larger, more expensive units.

These Maple HMIs are able to communicate with multiple controllers using different PLC protocols – allowing for integration to an existing system.

The screens can be configured to operate in either portrait or landscape mode so they can be mounted either horizontally or vertically.
