More Information about the HMIs
Adding a Gateway with Serial (cMT-G03) or Ethernet (cMT-G04) bridge can upgrade your existing controller and touch panel without the need for modifying the PLC and HMI projects, adding all the functionality of our Smart Series to your existing system.

With the IIoT protocols: MQTT and OPC UA built-in, our Gateway products (cMT-G01, cMT-G02, cMT-G03, cMT-G04) can easily fit into most applications and integrate real time data from different devices, to provide a standard communication interface.
Maple Systems Basic & Advanced HMI series integrate with our PLC products. Communication is established with industry standard Modbus RTU or TCP. The Modbus Slave driver is configured in MAPware-7000 for the PLC, and the Modbus Master driver is configured in EBPro for the HMI. Tags can be exported and imported in both directions. In models that support Ethernet, a crossover Ethernet cable (part number 7431-0104) can be used. For all other models, serial cable (part number 7446-0215 or 7444-0215) based on HMI model used, is required.
Our Advanced HMIs have a built-in touchscreen to provide feedback and allow input from on-site personnel. If that is all that's required, a standard HMI may be enough. On the other hand, if you want the convenience of monitoring and accessing your system without having to walk to where the HMI is physically located, one of our Smart Servers is a great option.

Utilize your Apple smart phone or tablet to "Wi-Fi" into the Smart Server remotely. Our Smart Servers can easily monitor multiple systems from one location: Install the cMT Viewer application onto your Windows® PC to monitor multiple cMTs (up to 50 per overview screen) from any location that has an internet connection. Simply click on the HMI to display it on your PC, then monitor or control the HMI from your PC.

Pairing an Advanced HMI with a Smart Server adds additional functionality that the HMI doesn't have on its own. With EasyAccess 2.0 built-in, MQTT, Web Streaming, and SQL database functionality, adding a Smart Server to an existing Advanced HMI allows your organization to take advantage of the IoT to improve your company's bottom line.
Our Advanced HMI Series is designed to communicate to a wide variety of devices. With support for over 300 different communication protocols, including Allen-Bradley, Mitsubishi, Emerson, GE, Idec, and Modbus or TCP/IP support, adding an Advanced Series HMI is a low-cost and simple way to bring legacy systems into the IIoT.
From an operator using a smartphone on the plant floor, to a corporate executive on the other side of the globe, Maple Systems products integrate perfectly with a wide variety of smartphones, tablets, and PCs, with apps for Apple, Android, and Windows® operating systems. This makes it easier than ever to connect to operational equipment in the field. Achieve secure connections, increased monitoring mobility, and reduced downtime to increase your organization's bottom line.

VNC: Our Advanced HMIs come with a built-in VNC (Virtual Network Computing) server. VNC is a Remote Frame Buffer protocol used for remote operation and screen sharing. It enables you to instantly monitor and control a remote HMI as though you were standing in front of it. When enabled, any third party VNC viewer client (available for Apple, Android, Windows®, and Linux devices) can log into a Maple HMI to see and control exactly what's shown on the HMI screen.

VNC Options on Maple Systems HMIs Include: :

  • Require a password or allow password-free access
  • Set a timeout to automatically log remote users out
  • Enable monitor mode (view only)
  • Allow single or multiple connections

VNC is ideal for situations where the remote device is on the same local network and bandwidth is not limited. For situations where users need the ability to view different screens without affecting the local unit, or when access from outside the local network is desired without needing to configure your router ports, EasyAccess 2.0 may be a better solution. Note: HMI IP address required for VNC access. VNC client applications for many different platforms are available online.
Originally developed for use as an in-vehicle network in passenger cars, nowadays Controller Area Network (CAN) is used in many other industries. This includes applications in any kind of transportation system (rail vehicle, aircraft, marine, etc.), in industrial machine control systems, in home and building automation (e.g. HVAC, elevators), in mobile machines (construction and agriculture equipment), in medical devices and laboratory automation, as well as in many other embedded and deeply embedded applications.

CAN communication protocols are based on a distributed scheme, there is no central unit, allowing a direct data transfer between any two or more CAN devices. In an automated industrial installation, CANbus is most commonly used as part of a control system connecting vital systems that may be spread throughout a facility. A Maple Systems HMI with CANbus support, allows the operator to interact with the system. From there programmable logic controllers (PLCs) relay those commands through the CANbus interface to the sensors, actuators, motors or other mechanical systems that carry out the desired action.

What are the Benefits of CAN?

Integrating CANbus communication offers several advantages for industrial automation industries:

  • Speed: CAN data transfer speeds far outperform traditional analog wiring since multiple messages can be sent simultaneously to all connected devices, sensors or actuators.
  • Flexibility: Because of its single cable, two-wire structure, CANbus offers enhanced installation and maintenance flexibility. CAN-connected systems not only contain significantly less wire, making them easier to install, but adding new components to a system requires far less development while also greatly reducing complications in diagnosing and addressing signal problems.
  • Reliability: In addition to being far less sensitive to magnetic interference than analog wiring, CAN communication also requires fewer cables and connectors, drastically cutting down on points of failure.
  • Cost: The lower hardware costs and minimal signal processing requirements make CAN an ideal solution for embedded applications requiring multi-processor communication on a budget.

As the Internet of Things continues to grow and encompass more and more complex systems, standardizing the way each component communicates with the next will be vital in ensuring compatibility, expandability and installation longevity. Here at Maple Systems our HMIs work to implement CANbus communication in a wide range of custom embedded systems particularly in manufacturing environments and modern building automation installations.
As Wi-Fi becomes more readily accepted and accessible in today's industrial controls marketplace, the devices we use must evolve with it. The industrial control network must function in real-time, be highly available, responsive, and most of all, secure. These demands are often in direct conflict with the pressure to reduce costs, increase connectivity, and enable remote access. The HMI5103L offers a secure access point to an existing Wi-Fi network that can provide a unified, reliable, and easy way to manage production.

Some benefits of implementing a Wi-Fi network in your smart factory include:
  • Cutting Costs by Creating a Wireless Network on Your Factory Floor: Wi-Fi can solve applications where wiring is impractical or too expensive. There's no need to run expensive Ethernet or Serial cables throughout your plant. Add a Wi-Fi router to your network and you're ready to go.
  • Flexibility in Communications and Troubleshooting: Use a Wi-Fi enabled laptop to troubleshoot your machines without having to find a network access point or carry around extra cables.
  • Ease of Expandability: Aside from the initial ease of setup for a Wi-Fi network, wireless networks can serve a suddenly-increased number of clients with the existing equipment. In a wired network, additional clients would require additional wiring.

HMI5103L Wi-Fi Features:
  • IEEE 802.11 b/g/n
  • WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK Encryption
  • EasyAccess 2.0 included for secure (VPN) remote access from outside the local network
  • DHCP or Static IP options
  • Ability to turn Wi-Fi radio on/off within program
  • Project upload/download over Wi-Fi

Security is paramount in today's technologically advanced times and so is connectivity. Many PLCs take advantage of Ethernet communication to transmit data to a monitoring device such as an HMI. Plant corporate networks, of course, can also run via Ethernet and Wi-Fi networking. But how do you get data from the PLC to your corporate network without the bandwidth or security sacrifices entailed by placing your PLC on the same network? Our Dual-Ethernet models and Wi-Fi HMIs conveniently divide competing connectivity demands between two separate networks. This offers the benefits of connecting to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) for your customers, while increasing the reliability and security of a private control network dedicated to keeping machinery operating at peak performance. The HMI becomes a gateway into your control network.

The PLC can transmit everything to the HMI without having to deal with slowdowns or network traffic and the HMI can maintain a connection to the plant network for VNC monitoring, sending status reports, data log files, and e-mail alarms. In the event of a catastrophic issue causing the main company network to go down, the HMI maintains its PLC connection, which means the machine stays up and running. Only data that is intentionally shared with the Internet will be accessible from the outside world. PLC and other machine hardware on the control network cannot be directly accessed, greatly improving security and preserving bandwidth for time critical control tasks. Maintaining separate networks is a best practice for the security-conscious, and our Dual-Ethernet and Wi-Fi models allow that to happen at a great price.

Dual-Ethernet Features:
  • Gigabit speeds: 10/100/1000 Base-T
  • EasyAccess 2.0 included for secure (VPN) remote access from outside the local network
  • Separate LAN and WAN networking
  • DHCP or Static IP options

Remote HMI = RMI. The RMI5001 units are "remote" in the fact that the monitoring/control element is physically separated from the display. The RMI5001 is an HMI with no display that converts any compatible TV or monitor into a Status Display Station in which the HMI data is displayed via an HDMI® cable. It divides the traditional all-in-one HMI into two parts: a data processing unit and a separate visual display. No longer is your screen size limited to the available HMIs on the market – you can now display your real-time production data on a large wall-mounted Status Display Station, easily visible from any plant floor location.

Connectivity Options: The RMI5001 data processing unit is a fully functional Advanced HMI and can be thought of as the "brain" data processing center which allows you to monitor and control your automation process. This unit offers one Ethernet port, three COM ports on one physical DE-9 Serial port, a USB Host port, an SD card reader slot, and support for more than 300 major brands of PLCs and controllers, including the standard industrial/IIoT protocols Modbus and MQTT.

Display Options: This compact, powerful unit turns any HDMI®-compatible TV or industrial monitor into a Status Display Station via HDMI® cable – efficiently delivering crisp, high-definition graphics. The HDMI® interface is also easily converted to DVI/VGA/Display Port with an adapter (not supplied). Because the display is user-selectable, you can choose the features you need in your display independent of the features you need in your HMI. Choose a daylight readable display with an extended temperature range for outdoor applications. Choose a large display for indoor applications that need to be easily viewable from far away. Or choose to have no display at all for applications where you only need data logging or mobile access to the HMI through VNC. You can even connect it to a projector for the largest display needs.

Extended Temperature Range: With the RMI5001's extended operating temperature range of -4° ~ 131°F (-20° ~ 55°C) and the versatility of choosing the right display for your needs, this unit gives you more installation environment flexibility than most HMIs on the market. It can be paired with high-brightness displays suitable for outdoor use or placed in colder environments than most LCD displays are capable of operating in.

Applications: The RMI5001 can also be used as an Andon or Annunciator System, creating a Status Display Station. It can collect equipment and quality management data from the production line, process the data, and then send visualization and sound to a large screen monitor via HDMI®, allowing real-time monitoring and control for onsite operators. Andon Systems are widely used in manufacturing plants for instant visual management. Alarm messages and key productivity indicators from the production line can be collected, displayed and monitored in real-time. Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) information can be displayed and identifies the percentage of planned production time that is truly productive.

Take things a step further by using the cMT-FHD, which is also a headless HMI that can be connected to any HDMI® compatible display and allows for touchscreen support. Touchscreen is supported via USB connection, or a USB mouse can be used with non-touchscreen displays. This compact, powerful unit is also dual-ethernet and can be used with a wireless router to communicate with an Apple/Android device, ultimately being able to communicate with up to three devices at the same time. More information on the cMT-FHD available here.
EasyAccess 2.0 allows you to instantly and securely communicate with your Maple Advanced HMI from anywhere in the world. Accessibility from outside the plant provides the opportunity to troubleshoot or add new features to the HMI/PLC program by qualified personnel without ever setting foot inside the plant. An administrator grants access to specific HMIs and groups, and traffic is encrypted and secured via VPN. Remote troubleshooting saves money by reducing downtime, travel, and personnel costs.

Security: EasyAccess 2.0 uses a VPN (Virtual Private Network) over the public Internet to securely transmit encrypted data to your internal network. Doing so ensures the same security and reliability you've come to expect when transmitting online banking data. The HMI Manager is a project management tool enabling easy management of your EasyAccess 2.0 HMI fleet. HMI Manager allows the administrator to manage users, HMIs, locations, and notes, granting and restricting operator access to your entire HMI fleet.

Pass-Through Technology: Remote Pass-Through is made simple with EasyAccess 2.0, giving you the ability to monitor and update a PLC connected to your remote HMI. Simply log into the remote HMI with EasyAccess 2.0, enable Pass-Through mode, and upload, download, or go online with your PLC project. During the Pass-Through process, communication between the HMI and PLC remains.
Note: EasyAccess 2.0 is available on all Maple Advanced HMIs but requires an activation card for some models.
