This panel is extremely easy to program and implement. It's a great value, especially compared with the price you'd pay for an equivalent big-name panel. I've used 6 of these in the last couple of months, and I've been pretty impressed.
good product and reliable
Have used this item on several projects, very reliable and provides a very useful interface.
I had already reviewed this item when I purchased the first one, but I need to revise. I had to drop the quality rating down by one because of the additional four that I purchased, one was defective. There was a very small particle under the screen membrane causing the touch function to not work. It's a very small spec that is difficult to see. However, when you turn it on, the pointer points right to it because the debris is activating the touch point.
We use the C-More HIM to replace Allen-Bradley Panelview Plus HMI's. They are much more cost effective. Even though there is a difference in quality it is not a limiting factor. They have lasted as long as the Allen-Bradley equipment in most applications. Considering that you can purchase 2 C-More panels to 1 Allen-Bradley you can always have a shelf spare. Great item to use if you wish to get away from the $$HIGH$$ of other HMI panel. On a technical side the limits are only having a set number of tags per display. It can be aggravating at time, but not a show stopper
The EA9 Series is by far my favorite HMI. I am primarily an AB CompactLogix and SLC500 user. These panels integrate so well with AB. Our local rep has stated that AD HMI's are their biggest competitor in our area! Needless to say, he isn't very happy! So much more user friendly than the AB PV+ and you don't need a capital request to buy one! I highly recommend AB users to give these a try. The software is very low cost as well and easy to navigate. I have always dis-liked AB FT-View Software and I haven't met anyone who does like it.
Great HMI. Many features that make it invaluable. One problem I've ran into is the housing is rated NEMA 4/4X, however, it's not UL type 12. Is there a reason it hasn't been UL listed type 12?
We have HUNDREDS of C-More HMI"s in our factory, HUNDREDS of them! Great product and when I design ANY new system, I specify C-More! Great product, great software, great options and functionality. Thank you.
Have several of these installed, very reliable.
Works very reliably. I have several in the field now.
