Home / Human Machine Interface Terminals / Mitsubishi Conversion


The Mitsubishi E-Series hardware products and E-Designer software have been manufactured by Beijer Electronics for Mitsibishi for many years. In 2015, this partnership ended. Beijer-branded E1000 HMIs are now orderable directly through Beijer or one of its authorizated distributors. As your Mitsubishi terminals need to be replaced, Beijer provides a smooth transition by offering three paths:

Direct Replacement Path (E1000 panels) - A direct hardware and software replacement for most E1000 panels. The Beijer-branded E1000 panels are identical to the Mitsubishi-branded E1000 panels, only the rear labeling is different.

Direct Replacement Path (EXTER panels) - A direct mechanical drop-in hardware replacement is available for most E1000 products. The replacement products use your existing E-Designer applications after a simple project conversion to Information Designer software, a service offered by Beijer Technical Support

Upgrade Replacement Path (iX panels) - Enhance your future HMI offering with modern iX hardware and state-of-the-art iX Developer software including graphics, scripting, alarms, recipes, remote access and multiple communication drivers. iX Developer supports and integrated E-Designer to iX Developer project conversion feature (as well as Information Designer to iX Developer).

The following is a comparison chart of the older, discontinued E-series/CIMREX HMI panels to the current E1000/EXTER HMI panels, as well as the closest versions to Beijer’’s latest iX panels.

1 The Beijer-built E-series models were branded for Mitsubishi. The CIMREX models were the Beijer-branded versions of the early E-series models. All were discontinued a number of years ago.

2 The E1000 models are upgrades from the older, discontinued E-series models. Historically, the Beijer-built E1000 models were branded for Mitsubishi, but now carry a Beijer brand. The E1000 are now only available from Beijer or an authorized distributor; they are no longer available from Mitsubishi. E1000 programming is based on E-Designer software which can now only be obtained from Beijer.

3 The Beijer-built and branded EXTER models are virtually identical to the E1000 models. EXTER programming is based on Information Designer software. Beijer Technical Support can convert an E-Designer program to an Information Designer program, if required.

4 X2 models are not 100% replacement models for the E1000 or EXTER models. They have different form-factors; there are no X2 Keypad models; all X2 models have color displays. These X2 models are the closest versions to the E1000/EXTER panels. X2 pro models have more memory and faster processors than the X2 base units. iX Developer can import an E-Designer or Information Designer project to run on X2 models, though it may not import 100% of the functionality.

5 Adapter plates enable a smaller footprint EXTER or E1000 HMI to fit in the space occupied by a slightly larger, discontinued Exxx or CIMREX model. Note: Adapter Plates allow most E1000/EXTER models to fit the cut-outs used by the discontinued E-series/CIMREX models.

6 X2 series are Beijer main iX models. See the EOL Notifications for details.
