Driven by end user demand for improved visualization into their automation solutions portfolio, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. (Vernon Hills, IL) has introduced the GT2107 Wide Series Human Machine Interface (HMI). The GT2107 is an interface that monitors and controls machine components with a graphical touchscreen that connects to equipment such as PLCs, VFDs and servos.
