Product phase-out: EC31 controller (2nd Generation)

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
Effective October 1, 2015, the EC31 controller is going to be listed entirely as product phase-out. This means the 2nd Generation of the controller with 4GB Flash Disc user memory is also being phased out.

Effective October 1, 2015, the EC31 controller is going to be listed entirely as product phase-out. This means the 2nd Generation of the controller with 4GB Flash Disc user memory is also being phased out. For new projects, we recommend either realizing the projects with WinAC RTX on Microbox D or switching directly to our new product generation ET 200SP Open Controller with S7-1500 Software Controller and TIA Portal.

Beginning with the start of the phase-out, new parts will most likely still be available for orders until discontinuation. Discontinuation will not become effective before October 2018. After new parts can no longer be ordered, defective devices may be shipped in for identified repair until the end of September 2020. With this type of repair, the original software images (corresponds to version and scope during original delivery) can be installed on the devices when the original packing slip is included.

We recommend that existing customers back up the software installations with an image backup. Information on the backup is described in the manual (entry ID: 37971572) section 9.1.
