GE Automation & Controls
GE Automation & Controls Ge Automation & Controls is a leading manufacturer of automation equipment with wide range of products, from compact programmable controllers, modular controllers, intelligent displays to redundant high availability systems.
The new GE Automation & Controls PACSystems (Programmable Automation Controllers) delivers the first Programmable Automation Control – one control engine and one development environment for multiple hardware platforms. PACSystems offers enhanced processing and communications speed and programming capacity over existing PLC technologies for high-speed processing, data acquisition and memory-intensive tasks like recipe storage and data-logging.
The PACSystems RX3i controller is the latest addition to the innovative PACSystems family of programmable automation controllers (PACs). Like the rest of the family, the PACSystems RX3i features a single control engine and universal programming environment to provide application portability across multiple hardware platforms and deliver a true convergence of control choices. The PACSystems RX3i features an incredible platform for Redundacy, giving users the highest performance and most user friend High Availability solution available. At the same time it can be combined with series 90-30 I/O modules.
PACSystems RSTi-EP CPE100 is standalone CPU unit in small housing with extensive communication options.
Versatile connectivity is provided by four built in Ethernet interfaces capable of connecting to two independent Ethernet networks. CPU supports various protocols such as Modbus TCP/IP, Profinet, SRTP, EGD, and can be connected through Ethernet with proven distributed I/O units VersaMax or RSTi-EP. PACSystems RSTi-EP CPE100 can be connected to different families of I/O units from GE Automation&Controls product range, which provides robust control system and affordable implementation of intelligent distributed control adapted to customer needs.
This compact, extremely affordable control solution can be used as a PLC, as I/O, and as distributed control. With its modular and scalable architecture, intuitive features and ease of use, this innovative control family can save machine builders and end users considerable time and money.
Series VersaMax Nano/Micro
The small-footprint VersaMax Micro PLC offers the flexibility of modular design and a variety of built-in features, including up to 64 I/O points (expandable to 170 I/O points), fast cycle times, a robust instruction set and extensive memory that multiplies your programming options.
For tight spaces, the VersaMax Nano PLC is the perfect solution. Thanks to its all-in-one construction, installation is a breeze. All you have to do is snap it onto a DIN rail or screw it into a panel. With the VersaMax Nano, you save on initial as well as life cycle costs.
RSTi-EP represents a family of compact distributed I/O units. They are suitable for applications with low density I/O signals, where users have limited space for installation of units and their terminals, but require robust systems with wide temperature range of operation. RSTi-EP units can have Profinet, Profibus and Modbus TCP interfaces and are available with different I/O modules and types of signals.
PACSytems RXi is a family of compact, high-performance industrial PCs for the most demanding users. Due to their robust design they are suitable for SCADA and Historian applications in industrial operating conditions. They can operate also in high ambient temperatures due to patented passive cooling technology. PCs are build with COM Express processor boards which are highly resistant to vibrations. Rxi IPCs are available in different configurations suited to user needs.
Identifying industrial computer solutions and the right operator interface is essential for solving your Industrial computing challenges. GE Automation & Controls offers a family of visual solutions to fit customer specific needs. The QuickPanel View bundled visualization solution provides the tools required fortoday’s application needs with a combination of bright touch screen displays, multiple communications options, and Proficy View – Machine Edition software.
Proficy Machine Edition
