Maple Systems’ HMC7000 line of Graphic HMCs (human machine controllers) combine a touchscreen machine interface and a programmable logic controller (PLC) into a small robust unit with a variety of I/O connections. New size includes 7.0-in., 800 x 480 pixeMaple Systems’ expanded HMC7000 line, Graphic HMCs (human machine controllers), combine a touchscreen machine interface and a programmable logic controller (PLC) into a small robust unit. HMCs can be customized with a variety of I/O connections that allow the HMC to interface with most industrial control environments. The HMC7000 Series is now available in two new sizes, each with an Ethernet connection. Like the current models, these new 4.3-in. and 7.0-in. models are rated for Class 1 Div 2, and are cULus, RoHS, and CE compliant.

In addition to the two new screen sizes, nine new I/O units have new features, including 16-bit resolution, and high-speed (25 kHz) data transfer. A newly available analog input/output module has 4 inputs, with individually configurable current, voltage, RTD and thermocouple readouts. High-speed input for counters and motion detection, along with PWM outputs for motor control, are available with this newest release. These new I/O connectors are compatible with the current 3.5-in. and 5.7-in. models, providing many new possibilities.

Maple Systems’ HMC7000 line of Graphic HMCs (human machine controllers) combine a touchscreen machine interface and a programmable logic controller (PLC) into a small robust unit with a variety of I/O connections. New size includes 4.3-in., 480 x 272 pixeAs with the current HMC models, these new units are easily configurable with MAPWare7000. The graphic HMC with compact form factor, enhanced communications features, and flexible design, make it a cost-effective solution for most small to mid-sized automation environments.
