HUMAN MACHINE INTERFACE (HMI) legacy products:

MPAC Ltd. Can support and supply parts for legacy products up to and beyond end of life.

Protecting your investment in Mitsubishi Electric products is one of our top priorities. Time and time again we have helped our customers to enable their investment to migrate and transition forward into newer, more advanced offerings. The average lifecycle of a Mitsubishi Electric automation product can be 10 years or more.

Although we have experience with Mitsubishi products operating reliably for periods in excess of 30 years. Mitsubishi offer innovative and technologically advanced products for industrial automation which are constantly evolving, so after a number of years a newer version of a product will be launched, the older version will remain available for a period of time then spares will remain available for a further period of time. Eventually spares parts will no longer be available and the best option for companies is to migrate to the newer platform while the installed system is still operable.

Product end of life is always carried out in a structured manner and a great deal of effort is made on the part of Mitsubishi to accommodate legacy versions of a product when a new model is launched.
Please feel free to contact us for further details of upcoming discontinuations, product availability, service, repair, and transition options.
Our goal is to help you determine the best way to introduce new technology, while reusing as much of your existing investment as possible.
We can also assist in upgrading legacy or obsolete equipment from other manufacturers and offer a migration solution. Please contact MPAC to discuss available migration options.
