Maple Systems Releases


An HMI that caters to the OEMs

Maple Systems is answering the call of OEMs craving a compact but versatile HMI control panel to replace expensive analog hardware controls.  The Everett, WA-based Operator Interface Manufacturer has responded to that plea with its new 4.3 inch high-resolution widescreen Graphic OIT — the HMI5043N.

Nicknamed The Biggest Little HMI on the Market, this innovative 4.3 inch touchscreen graphic OIT has features and capabilities that you’ll find in larger HMIs costing hundreds more. Yet unlike its larger siblings, its unobtrusive size (5” x 4” x 1.5”) allows panel mounting almost anywhere. And with its portrait-landscape mode, the HMI5043N can be functionally mounted either horizontally or vertically to accommodate any space requirement.

With a vast capacity for multiple screens, pop-ups, alarms, trend graphs, animations, recipes, and more – this powerful HMI can be configured to command equipment like a packaging or labeling machine, replace expensive analog lights, gauges and switches, or it can be configured to operate as a sophisticated little control panel for any unique OEM task. And budget-wise, its affordability quickly trumps the expensive analog controls it was designed to replace.

This capable unit is powered by a 400 MHz processor, 128 MB of memory, and it has a Client USB port, as well as a Serial port.  With a 65,000 color high-contrast widescreen TFT display, the HMI5043N will showcase your application graphics in crisp rich high-resolution color.  Its impressive resolution is 480 x 272 pixels, and its widescreen display is 30 percent wider than a traditional standard screen configuration. In addition this little HMI has a high-contrast backlit LED with an analog-resistive touchscreen offering infinite touch response points.

Additionally, Maple Systems EZware 5000 Configuration Software lets you design and customize your OEM application exactly the way you want it. The HMI5043N has a IP65, NEMA4 and a NEMA4X (indoor) rating, and certifications include CE, EMI FCC Class A,  and the cULus is pending. Maple backs the quality of the HMI5043N with a 2 year warranty and full technical support.

Maple Systems is an industry leader with a 26 year track record of offering value-driven award-winning products backed by superior customer service — a level of quality that many simply refer to as “The Maple Standard”.
