Maple Systems introduces next generation HMIs with advanced features and high-durability enclosures.HMI manufacturer, Maple Systems, has introduced three new models including a 7-in. (HMI5070P), 12.1-in. (HMI5121P), and 15-in. (HMI5150P) TFT touchscreen display. The touchscreens are housed in sleek aluminum enclosures that are compact and resistant to corrosion. The microprocessors are specifically designed for efficient graphic animation and heavy data processing.

These HMIs connect to a long list of PLCs, drives, and motion controllers through two serial ports, a USB port, a CAN bus port, and an Ethernet port, including support for BACnet and importing tag data for Rockwell Automation and Siemens PLCs. Use the SD slot or USB port to log data or capture alarm history. Two video input ports (HMI5121P and HMI5150P only) allow you to connect two motion cameras to the HMI for remote monitoring, and the built-in media player can play video files for training or instructional purposes.

The EZwarePlus configuration software has many enhanced options including increased recipe functionality, advanced macro support, and better diagnostic tools to make it easier to program and maintain your HMI. With the sophisticated security options, you can now manage user accounts and privilege settings to ensure that only authorized employees are allowed to perform sensitive tasks.

The HMIs can email messages to remote personnel to alert them of alarm conditions in the plant. With the EasyAccess feature, you can set up remote monitoring and control of your HMI from any networked PC. They also support VNC, allowing you to monitor the HMI from a handheld device or smart phone.

All of the HMI5000P Series are NEMA4 (IP65) rated and carry both CE and RoHS certification. These models will also carry UL listing pending certification.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
