EZTouch.miniPLCs have the option of having an Ethernet port also with all the Ethernet I/P, Modbus TCP/IP, GE SRTP, Siemens ISO over TCP/IP protocols allowing them to communicate to external networks also.

Patented HMI on-line edit, No downtime Watch it in action.

All HMIs except for EZtouch, require the machine or process to be shut down to make a change in the HMI program. While a new program is being uploaded to the HMI, it is non-functional and hence the machine can’t be allowed to operate during this time. Every time the HMI program is edited, there is machine down time of typically an hour. All EZTouch series HMIs have a patented on-line edit exceptionally innovative feature that allows the HMI program to be edited without the machine missing a beat.

Easiest Integrated HMI and PLC Drag-n-Drop PLC programming software, common to all models, just for $149

There is a reason why our company is called EZAutomation and our HMI is called EZTouch. We make it so easy to learn our programming language that no user, hundreds of thousands so far, thank you, ever had to attend any class to learn the programming. Most of our competitor’s products, like from Rockwell, Siemens, Mitsubishi, Unitronics, Schneider, Maple and others require a 3-5 day class to learn how to program their products. Our programming language is so intuitive and so simple that the design time for any screen and the entire project is reduced to hours instead of days. PLC software is equally intuitive, simple drag and drop as if you are drawing a ladder diagram. It has great function blocks, project simulation and troubleshooting features. The programing software is fully integrated into one for EZTouch.miniPLC. Additionally note that the Integrated Programming Software is universal and scalable for all models from top to the bottom.

Highest Reliability and Noise Immunity in industry.

EZTouch.miniPLC has been designed to meet the HALT/HASS standards that are used for electronic products used in the space program for shuttle launch, which means high shock and vibration along with thermal shock. In addition the EZTouch.miniPLC has a very high immunity to noise.

Status LED for each I/O in every model.

We have served the Automation industry since 1968. In fact, one of the AVG divisions, Uticor is the inventor of PLCs themselves. We have been around the block and totally understand the value of maintenance and down time in a manufacturing plant. We always make troubleshooting as convenient and EZ as possible. That is why, all our IO points have an LED right next to the output terminal and the terminal block is always Ezily removable and plug-in.

Choice of 3.5" or 6" displays

EZTouch.miniPLC displays are all with LED backlight rated at 400 NITS and 75K hours at 55 degree C ambient.

At least 2 for 1 of Unitronics, Maple HMI+PLC models, & Cmore and Separate Domore PLCs.

If you compare the HMI+PLC offering of EZAutomation and Unitronics, you will find that apples to apples, Unintronics Uni Series, Maple HMC Series, and  Automationdirect Cmore/Domore, shall be at least 3 for one, and if you compare the apples to oranges, that is EZAutomation’s EZTouch.miniPLC to their equivalent models, they will be at least 2 for 1.

All models have EZ Wifi $49 option to connect to your laptop without cable

This tiny little module that plugs into one of the serial ports in the EZTouch.miniPLC  (we recommend installing on every unit) allows a programmer to connect his/her laptop to it without a cable. So many times, it is not so easy to reach the Operator console to connect the programming cable to the HMI/PLC. Combination of our patented On-Line Edit feature and EZminiWifi becomes an exceptionally innovative solution to making changes on HMI screens and PLC ladder logic without having to open up the control cabinet and connecting the Programming cable.

Fastest touch response time of any HMI

All EZTouch HMIs have a super fast response time of less than ½ of a second, that is the response to touching any object on the screen is instantaneous. Its two to four times faster than any other HMI.

Full project simulation on your PC for EZTouch.miniPLC Series.

EZTouch.miniPLC programming software allows you to preview and test your entire HMI project by our Project simulation feature in the software. You can simulate the entire project on your PC itself before loading it up in your EZTouch.miniPLC. It’s a great time saver for programmers.

"C" Level scripting and logic expressions

Each tag in EZTouch HMI can be defined with a logic expression and C level scripting to get mathematical burden off the PLC and reduce the memory requirement in the PLC. Such a high end HMI can reduce the task of PLC to do simple ladder logic, even though the PLC inside the EZTouch.miniPLCs has sufficient horsepower of their own.

Data logging, Recipes, EMails, free chart recorder on Ethernet models.

EZTouch.miniPLC thru its Remote Monitoring and control feature over Ethernet can transmit vast amount of data that can be captured in a remote server eliminating the need for an external chart recoder. EZTouch.miniPLC also offers advanced Recipe Management to program different variables of a Recipe simultaneously. In addition, EZTouch.miniPLC HMIs have another advanced feature of sending emails or texts to designated personnel in the event of an alarm.

On-Screen Recipe Edit

Dual Driver capability to communicate to other PLC networks.

EZTouch.miniPLCs have the capacity to talk to multiple PLCs at the same time. Therefore, besides, the PLC inside, it can also talk to another network like EtherNet/IP.

Best looking objects and animations.

EZTouch HMIs have the best looking objects simulating real life panel actuators and indicators. And the animation of process is great.

Most Rugged 0.090” thick anti-glare touch screen.

All EZTouch HMIs except the 12” model have an extremely rugged customized touch screen that is 0.090” thick as compared to paper thin touch screens used in our competitor’s products, increasing the durability of the EZTouch touch screen.

Unicode for multiple languages.

All EZTouch.miniPLC HMIs have a Unicode feature for multiple languages, that is each Object can be displayed in different languages. This allows every operator of the HMI to be able to communicate to it in the language of his or her choice.

Unique Visibility tag for best screen space utilization.

EZTouch.miniPLC HMis have an extremely innovative Visibility tag on all objects. Object appears on the screen only if the visibility tag is true. Along with EZTouch.miniPLC’s feature of overlapping objects, visibility tag is a great space saver on the screen.

Patented HMI on-line edit, No Machine Shutdown, No downtime!

You wouldn’t buy a PLC today
if it didn’t have On-Line Edit...

...So why should you have to buy a Touch
Panel without On-Line Programming?

Only the EZTouch® has On-Line Programming

1.

After a machine upgrade including a new
PLC and Operator Interface, our System
Integrator asked the Machine Operator what
he would like to see better yet. The Operator
said the new “computer” was great with all
the colors but he missed the old pressure
gauge.

2.

Our System Integrator immediately pulled
out his notebook computer, hooked it up to
the Touch panel, launched his programming
software and put it in On-Line mode.

3.

And then, right in front of the operator’s eyes,
moved the other objects on the screen and
put an Analog Meter exactly to the operator’s
color taste, without ever having to shut down
the machine.

4.

All this took less than 2 minutes.
Operator: “Now that is nice!”
Let’s get these on all the
machines.”
