MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA: SPLat Controls announced the HMI430 board-level programmable logic controller (PLC) with an integrated 4.3-inch colour touchscreen, available at nearly half the cost of previous products with similar functionality.
With onboard, ruggedized digital I/O, analog I/O, and the SPLat MultiTrack built-in multitasking operating system, the HMI430 delivers professional-quality control that is affordable and easy to program, minimizing development time.
With multiple serial ports, HMI430 offers OEMs an ideal way to flexibly integrate a touchscreen into their solution for small- and medium-sized industrial control applications.
The touchscreen—a 4.3-inch 470x272 pixel screen with resistive touch and 64K colours—comes with a repertoire of standard buttons, fonts, and other screen elements. With support for alpha blending, image files, and Z-ordering, HMI430 offers sophisticated visual effects at a price point that OEMs can afford.
Geared to address a wide range of control applications, the HMI430 offers an ideal control interface for equipment in fields as diverse as HVAC, dairy, packaging, pump control, commercial food processing, mining, health and fitness, and patient care. Early adopters have implemented HMI430 for a microbrewery-bottling machine and leisure spa hydrotherapy tub control.
