3" Tri-Color Display HMI + PLC with Function Keys

The HMC7030A-L and HMC7030A-M both have a tri-color LCD display. This non-touchscreen display option has six function keys and twelve numeric keys for operator input. Set screen colors to red, green, and blue or mix the primary colors on-screen to create yellow, purple, and white color options.

The 3" LED backlit LCD display can be used to display data from ladder logic or built-in/expansion I/O. Use visual graphical displays such as bar graphs, meters, and bit lamps. Or import custom bitmap images. The tri-color LED backlight can be used to indicate runtime information such as run state or alarm condition.

These models offer a low-cost all-in-one control solution that pack a lot of functionality into a small package. They are a perfect fit for high volume OEM products where spaces and component budgets are tight, but a visual interactive user experience is still a requirement.




Plug-in I/O Modules


A Processor in Every Module

The Maple Systems HMC series offers many I/O module options including analog inputs and outputs, digital inputs and outputs, or a combination of both. Each module contains its own processor, in addition to the CPU of the base unit. Select any combination of modules to suit the unique requirements of your project. Selection varies depending on the HMC series.


Digital I/O


Digital inputs are bi-directional (sink or source). Outputs are available in sink (NPN), source (PNP), or relay contacts.

Utilize up to 16 digital outputs on a single module. Or, combine digital inputs with relay and transistor outputs on a single module.

High speed modules allow you to combine encoder inputs with PWM outputs and PID logic functions to create a complete motor control solution.

Special Digital I/O Functions:
  • High-Speed Counter/Quadrature Encoder inputs up to 200 kHz sampling rate depending on HMC series.
  • PWM outputs with the following modes:
    • PWM Mode
    • Clock Wise/Counter-Clock Wise
    • Pulse and Direction
    • Trapezoidal
  • Output Frequency up to 200 kHz depending on HMC series.
Transistor outputs can sink or source up to 500mA per channel (provided from external power supply) depending on model. Relay outputs are rated for 230 VAC and 2 A per contact.


Analog I/O


A diverse selection of Analog Input ranges provides complete flexibility when choosing sensor hardware:

  • 4 to 20 mA, 0 to 20mA
  • 0 to 5V, 0 to 10V, -10 to 10V
  • 0 to 50mV 0 to 100mV
  • RTD
  • Thermocouple type J or K
Analog outputs can be configured for:
  • 4 to 20 mA, 0 to 20mA
  • 0 to 10V
Select I/O cards with up to 8 analog inputs per card, or combo cards with up to 4 inputs and 2 outputs. Analog Input/Output resolution available up to 16-bits for demanding applications. I/O cards vary depending on HMC series.

Remote Access

Pair one of our cMT Gateway products with an HMI + PLC unit to add remote access and enhanced data extraction. The cMT Gateway uses Modbus TCP to pull data from the HMI + PLC combo unit which can then be synched to an SQL database, sent to the cloud using MQTT, or shared with SCADA and ERP systems using OPC UA. The Gateway can also be configured to send emails with data logs at set times, or when an alarm is triggered. If the EasyAccess 2.0 service is enabled on the Gateway, Web Screens configured for the HMI + PLC in MAPware-7000 become accessible from anywhere in the world!
