HMIs: High resolution and widescreen graphic interface terminals

Maple Systems' three 10-in. HMIs provide more speed, capability. One gives the same pixel coverage as a 12-in. HMI in a 10.4-in. unit, and will even run a video media player.

Maple Systems Inc. announces three new 10-in. graphic operator interface terminal (OIT) models with faster CPUs, enhanced graphic appeal, and enhanced capability in a choice of widescreen or high resolution displays.

With a display resolution of 800 x 600 pixels, the HMI5104XH is a high-resolution graphic OIT with a 500 MHz CPU, 256MB of Flash, and 256MB of DRAM. According to the company, this unit gives the same pixel coverage as a 12-in. HMI in a 10.4-in. unit, and will even run a video media player.

The HMI5100N and HMI5100T (with Ethernet) are 10.2-in. widescreens that have a 400 MHz CPU with 128 MB of Flash and 64 MB of DRAM. Widescreen models offer 20% more usable screen area than standard 640 x 480 screens, and imagery looks crisp on the 800 x 480 pixel 65K color TFT displays.

According to the company, these HMIs offer a substantial improvement in visual performance over standard interfaces and "attractive pricing to help in budget conscious times." Units also feature a 4-wire analog resistive touchcreen, and built-in Ethernet, USB and serial ports, and come with a 2 year warranty and technical support.
