CIMTEC Awarded Factory-Authorized GE Rx7i Repair, Parts and Support Center Designation

Sponsored by Businesswire

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

  • 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
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

Field Control

the best hands possible when trusting their systems to CIMTEC.”
