CIMON: Xpanel Hybrid Expandable HMI + PLC Combo Unit

February 3, 2023

Why pay for HMI and PLC products separately when you can save on cost and space by using a single, self-contained solution? This was CIMON’s philosophy when designing the Xpanel Hybrid: convenience, reliability, and practicality. Based on decades of knowledge and experience in the automation industry, CIMON has combined two of their most popular devices into one convenient package.

It is understood by CIMON that your industrial projects have a specific set of demands and requirements. To that end, the Xpanel Hybrid is scalable and can meet your I/O needs. Connect up to three additional modules (1 hybrid expansion module, 2 PLC-S I/O modules) to get the most out of your setup. The extensible nature of this HMI and PLC combination allows for versatile, customized I/O to suit your project specifications.

Unlike most combo units on the market, the Xpanel Hybrid possesses two separate motherboards — one in the HMI and another in the PLC — to maintain stability and reliability. Carry out your ideal project using CIMON’s PLC and HMI programming software (CICON and XpanelDesigner) and integrate your projects using a seamless workflow.
