The Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2019--

CIMTEC Automation, LLC, has been named the Authorized Repair Center for Emerson Automation’s Rx7i product line. Initially introduced as the GE Fanuc/GE IP Rx7i product line in 2005, the Rx7i product family of processors, racks, power supplies and specialty cards was the flagship controller in GE’s PAC offering that also includes the popular Rx3i line.

The Rx7i authorization is significant for Rx7i users because it establishes a Factory- Authorized Repair, Parts and Support center for this product line that was discontinued in late 2017. CIMTEC will provide Factory-quality Repairs to all Rx7i (IC698 prefix) units including:

  • Original OEM Components used on all repairs
  • Each unit repaired to Factory standards per original board descriptions, schematics and functional specifications
  • Each unit tested to Factory Test Specifications
  • Each unit burned in under full-load conditions to insure Factory-quality performance

In addition, all remanufactured Rx7i parts from CIMTEC will be certified to factory standards with the same repair processes listed above and come with a 2-year warranty. This includes all IC698CPE030, IC698CPE040 and IC698PSA350 units.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have acquired the Rx7i Repair Authorization from Emerson,” said Roy Pelkey, Vice President of CIMTEC’s Qualitrol Repair and Support Division. “CIMTEC continues to grow as the top Repair, Parts and Support Center for GE’s discontinued products lines. Since 2012, we have been Authorized for the GE 90-70 line, the GE QuickPanel lines, GE Field Control line and now the Rx7i line. Our depth of knowledge, quality workmanship, national support reach and customer-first business culture means that users of any GE Legacy PLC or HMI system will be in the best hands possible when trusting their systems to CIMTEC.”
