Convert an HMI5070TH to a new 7” HMI

It’s easy to upgrade your HMI5070TH to one of the newest HMIs that Maple Systems has to offer.


Refer to our Compare Models table for an easy visual list of differences between our current models when considering which HMI as your replacement for the HMI5070TH. Because there are many considerations - including panel-cutout, serial ports, and mounting options to name a few - select your replacement carefully. We offer a variety of 7” HMI models to meet your project needs.

Tech Note 5116, “Converting from the HMI5070TH to a Maple Systems 7" Model” offers step-by-step instructions on how to convert your project from EZware5000 to EBPro, as well as, cable pin-out diagrams to help with your conversion.

You may need to purchase a new serial cable from the HMI to your PLC device. The new controller communication cable's part number will depend on your PLC. Most cables are $55 each. See our List of Communication Cables.


The HMI5070TH was programmed with EZware-5000. All of our current HMIs are configured using our EBPro software. EBPro is free and offers more features than EZware-5000 and will enable you to enhance your projects, or design new projects with features such as:

  • Automated email alerts
  • Screenshots, data logging, and recipes
  • Enhanced security
  • Remote control and monitoring using EasyAccess 2.0
  • IIoT protocols such as MQTT
  • Support for even more PLCs and controllers

You can quickly convert and import your existing EZware-5000 project into EBPro with a few simple steps.
  1. Download both software version FREE from our Support Center
  2. Follow Tech Note 5092 to convert your project

And if you need additional help, we can help with that, too. Contact us at sales@maplesystems.com for more information.
