Alarms are not displayed correctly. They seem to disappear from alarm list even though they are still active. Had to restart the HMI every time when I needed to know the exact number of alarms in the system. I have sent both PLC and HMI projects to technical support and they could not find the cause of the problem. I used Siemens s7 1215c PLC's and EA9-T15CL HMI.
I have been using Automation Direct touch screens for over 10 years. They are the easiest to create a project with. The EA9 even overcame some minor limitations of the EA7. KUDOS!
It's a great deal for the money, but.....How about tossing in a cutout template, guys?1 person found this review helpful.
EA9-T6CL, Great value and easy to use for a first timer. I used software version 6.14 and find it fairly intuitive. This was my first HMI experience and was able to set up multiple screens with alarm pop-ups, line trends, storage of trends (USB), Remote access, events. I'm currently working with IT for FTP and Email events through the firewall. Talks with the Mitsubishi FX series PLC flawlessly. Suggestion: Ability to connect and view cameras on the screen such as IP cameras. Software update would be needed to include video display screens.
I would recommend this item to anyone.
C-More V6.14 Recipe object doesn't work. Software very buggy.
After using AB Panelviews for several years I started using the 15" EA9. What a great product. Programming is easy, the extra screen space I put to good use and able to get more pertinent information that will help both the operators and maintenance personel. This is also 1/3 of the price.
This thing is amazing. I started out wanting a screen that was all I hoped for to control a pump application. After I got the unit and the C more software I realized that there was an apple store APP that would connect to it and that it would could be turned on to be a web browser app. I was going to have to use Point of View to accomplish that. Within 15 minutes of plugging it in without ever cracking the manual I had a switch and an indicator on the screen, my phone, and my web browser and each was able to control my application. Clearly I will need to spend some more time to make it pretty but speed to solution? Amazing!!!!!2 of 2 people found this review helpful.
I bought this screen to be used with a DL-06 PLC. I have been very happy with this purchase. I am extremely satisfied with the level of support that I have received from Automation Direct in regards to technical questions with the EA9-T6CL. One feature I would like to see is the ability to zoom in a region of the graphs using the touchscreen.
I used this panel to control a pod of four carousels in a recent project. The colors and response are great, and the programming and connectivity are very smooth. I will definitely use this one again.2 of 2 people found this review helpful.
