EZAUTOMATION is committed to providing HMI solutions for all budgets and for all applications in process automation projects.

EZText Enhanced Panels make the best operator interface alternative in the PLC system, if the project budget does not allow a fancier touch screen type HMI.

For low cost applications requiring pushbuttons, or LEDs, EZAutomation offers a wide range of different text panels. These simple and low-cost panels come with EZ-to-use Windows based software (free to existing EZText customers), which is the simplest to program and quickest to install.
