It is a prime example of Innovation by Design, Exceptionally Innovative products, Made in America and brought to you Factory Direct with no other supply channels in between with their own mark-ups. These EZTouc.miniPLCs are heads and shoulders above Samba units from Unitronics with 40% more IO, high end PLC functionality and at lesser prices. There is simply no comparison!
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.
Advanced functionalities, PID, Math, High Speed counters.
The EZTouch.miniPLC is a very high end PLC with 55 instructions, 8192 registers, Flash memory, Real Time Clock, 32 Bit floating point math, 8 PID loops, High speed counters.

EZTouch.miniPLCs are uniquely compact living up to the AVG theme of “Maximum Processing Power per cubic inch”. AVG is a vertically integrated company with in-house capability of high density PCBs, thick film hybrids, flexible boards and semiconductors allowing us to be extremely innovative. In EZTouch.miniPLC we have been able to pack: 1. 3.5" or 6" LED backlit display
2. Ethernet port for EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP etc.
10 DC Inputs
4. 8 Short circuit proof DC Outputs
5. 2 250K Hz Encoder Inputs
6. 4 5 Amp 1 Form C
Relay outputs with snubbers
7. 2 12-bit Analog Inputs
8. 1 12-bit Analog Output
Real time clock
10. LED indicators
next to each I/O points
11. Plug-in removable terminal blocks
ALL IN 5" x 4" x 2" PACKAGE
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
All EZTouch HMIs have an exceptionally innovative feature of on-screen recipe edit where you can edit the recipe on the HMI itself without needing to connect to a laptop with programming software.
Remote Monitoring & Control smart phones & Ethernet
EZTouch.miniPLCs with Ethernet have a remote monitoring and control feature where you can monitor and control the functionality of an HMI remotely via a Smart phone with iOS or Android OS.
Most advanced alarm management and Logging
Alarm management in EZTouch HMIs is at a very advanced level. It has an Alarm database, alarm history, alarm preview, alarm count, alarm message to a marquee, alarm preview, alarm simulation and alarm reset protection.
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.
