HMi Operator Interface

Available in four-, six-, eight- and 10-inch models, HMi features programmable function buttons for even the most robust applications. With the ability to store recipes and historical and alarm data and to transfer the data to a USB memory stick, HMi makes interfacing with machinery easier than ever.


One application does fit all. With a few keystrokes, an application can be scaled to any size HMi device, four to 10 inches. When upgrading or downsizing the operator interface, a click of a button sizes the screen image to match the product's screen size. It's the perfect feature for machines built to different specifications and size require­ments.

Easy-to-Use Macro Ability

Its easy-to-use macro ability, with the strength to handle even the most complicated applications, allows HMi to help customers manage their machine more efficiently than ever. From simple math to storing and manipulating trends, data and communications to sending data from one PLC to another, macros make HMi the easiest inter-face on the market.


Communication on any Network

With an expansive driver list and two or three serial com­munication ports, HMi is the answer for communicating on any network. (HMi can communicate with more than 20 brands of PLCs!) Because the expansion slot is located on the back of the unit, customers can connect to a parallel printer, Ethernet network or even I/O modules, allowing them to do even more with their operator interface.
