GE 90-70 PLC Product Line (IC697) and Repair Support Acquired by CIMTEC Automation
Leading Automation Service Provider takes over Global Fulfillment, Repair and Support of Highly-successful PLC line from GE IP
This agreement includes the Series 90-70 products used in the TUV approved GMR SIL rated system configurations. The GMR system continues to be available as a certified system from CIMTEC while components remain available.
"We are extremely excited about this opportunity to be able to serve existing GE IP 90-70 customers throughout the US and the world," says Dan Keenan, President of CIMTEC Automation. "For over 25 years, we have been working closely with GE not only as a premier distributor, but have been providing repairs, remanufactured parts and phone and field support for GE's legacy PLC products. In essence, we have been extending the life of obsolete GE PLC parts."
These days, it is not always possible for a manufacturing facility to migrate to the latest control system just because the vendor decides to discontinue a product line.
"We recognize that end users don't have the resources to migrate control systems every 3 to 5 years. They need a partner that has the expertise to support older systems, has the parts in stock and can respond to emergencies or critical customer issues right then," adds Keenan.
The 90-70 change is effective immediately. CIMTEC will provide the following for all global customers and channel partners:
• Presales support for purchase inquiries for 90-70 products
• Warranty support for the 90-70 installed base
• Out of warranty repair support for the installed base of 90-70 products
• Technical support for the 90-70 installed base
