I have put in several of these units. They work great as all the EA9 family does. The price is excellent and has allowed me to use this larger HMI on some fairly small projects.
This HMI module is an excellent value and has great programming capabilities. Very clear good graphics.
Great product with a great price

Great value. Would it be too much though to include the cutout template as they are included in the 6" models. Or at least list them separately for purchase.
Let's start by saying that I'm primarily used to the Mitsubishi 1000 series and 2000 series HMI's. Now, I can say that the graphics package for this series of HMI isn't quite as impressive as what you'll find in a 2000 series HMI, but it definitely stands up to the early 1000 series. The sample programs are definitely a great asset in assessing how you want to go about developing a program and the program is surprisingly easy to use - albeit it doesn't come with quite as many graphic options for switches as what I would have hoped (merely to come as close to the old versions I've used before). The use of bitmap images for buttons definitely comes in handy. Overall though, I'd say the functionality of the program is quiet impressive.
Works very well and is easy to program and to interface with many Plc's and other applications.
I can't say enough about the 7" display. Much bang for the buck! I have installed four of these at various locations on an operating commercial ship. The EA9s provide the crew with insight into their machinery from centralized locations that they never had before, and they love them! The programming was about a simple as it can get, and I have the EA9s communicating with DL 205 series PLCs via Ethernet through Stride switches. I have added the EA9 to my arsenal of customer solutions!
Employees love the color screen and ease of use compared to other brands we have used. Also the price is much lower then others.
In a world where prices keep going up, it is refreshing to see the EA9 series of panels that seem to keep coming out with new models and at lower prices. These 7" panels are now cheaper than 6" panels. The ease of programming and connecting these to multiple PLCs is as good as it gets.
