  • EA7 to EA9

    I've been retired for a few years. A former customer approached me about making some changes to some EA7 HMIs. They are all currently communicating serially to GE PLCs because when they were originally installed there was not an Ethernet option for GE communication. I see that the EA9 line includes Ethernet communication to GE (now Emerson).
    My question, can the existing EA7 HMIs be upgraded to a firmware version that will be compatible with the GE Ethernet driver?

    From what I understand, the EA7 panels are a legacy product and are no longer receiving any feature updates. The customer panels would have to be replaced with EA9 panels in order to utilize the Ethernet driver you’re referencing.
