With customizable I/O, the HMC accepts up to five plug-in I/O modules with varying configurations of digital and analog inputs and outputs. A 3.5-in. or 5.7-in. touchscreen display is available, each equipped with six function keys adjacent to the screen.

The HMC’s durability and performance are backed up with a Class I Division 2 rating as well as cULus, NEMA 4, CE, and RoHS certifications.
