HMI + PLC
Maple Systems HMI + PLC line combines an HMI and PLC into one unit. Lower your costs while saving time and space.
Our HMC series of HMI + PLC units merge the functionality of a controller and an HMI into one unit. HMI + PLCs lower costs, save space, and feature options including touchscreen and function key models, serial and Ethernet, and numerous I/O configurations.
We offer two different HMI + PLC lines featuring over twenty different I/O modules to choose from, making these combination units a favorable option for many customers.
Sizing & I/O Modules
The HMC7000 series features two sizes: 4.3" and 7" touchscreen displays. Units can support up to five I/O modules with 15 fixed and expandable options to choose from.
Our HMC3000 series offers a slim design, support for a micro SD card and expandable I/O modules that provide both analog and digital I/Owithin the same module. The HMC3000 line offers three sizes: 4.3", 7",and 10" touchscreen displays.

PLC Logic Editing Tools
Our HMI + PLCs offer the ability to choose from two logic editing modes: Native Ladder or IEC 61131-3.
Native Ladder Editing Mode
Native Ladder Editing Mode provides an intuitive ladder logic editor and an extensive set of instructions. Real-time monitoring and debugging tools help you to quickly find logical errors and complete your project in a timely manner.
IEC 61131-3 Editing Mode
Incorporates five logic editors and a familiar development environment for anyone familiar with the IEC 61131-3 standard. Make logic reusable by creating User-Defined Function Blocks (UDFB). Use multiple instances of UDFBs throughout a project or export to another project. Online
monitoring tools allow you to view the logic in action.
Which HMI + PLC is right for you?
Both Maple HMI + PLC lines are Class I, Division 2 rated, support high-speed counters and timers, provide serial and Ethernet communications, and let you choose either Native Ladder or IEC programming. Both series are programmed using Maple's MAPware-7000 software, which allows you to have web server functionality, data logging, recipes, graphs, alarms, trending, objects with multiple tasks, and more.
When deciding on which HMI + PLC series to choose, I/O and display size are the key differentiators and factors. Consider how many inputs (analog/digital) your program requires. Do you need separate analog and digital modules, or would a module with both analog and digital best meet your needs?
Questions to Consider
once you decide on an I/O configuration and the required modules, you can then determine which screen size, or sizes, will support that configuration. How many modules does a particular model support? What about the speed of the high-speed counter? Do you need a micro SD card? These are important questions to consider when making your selection.
