  • 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?SHAREit Appvn

    I do not know much about GE. What protocol do they use over ethernet?
    There have been no updates to EA7 since 2.78SP2 ~2015? -- and I was hoping for a CLICK Ethernet driver!

    Currently in 2.78SP2, I see nothing to indicate a GE ethernet driver. However, there is a Modicon ModbusTCP.

      As Kewakl said, EA7 software and firmware were froze at 2.78SP2, there was no GE Ethernet Driver at that time.
