Small but powerful HMI
September 2015, Operator Interfaces, Switches & Relays

M2I Corporation has announced the launch of its new Xtop 4” HMI, which has been specifically designed to meet the requirements for the monitoring and controlling of industrial plants.

The 4,3” TFT colour display supports 65 536 colours and has a backlight life of 50 000 hours. This touch screen has an analog resistive film type and a 1 million times or more touch life and comprises Serial COM2 that has support for RS-232C and RS-422/485.

This HMI has a built-in real-time clock with a screen memory of 6 MB and free multi-functional design software (XDesignerPlus) is included for ease of graphic design.

These HMIs have a large protocol database which incorporates the popular Modbus RTU, Siemens MPI and Mitsubishi FX and Q Series PLCs, to name a few.
