Ethernet modules from GE-IP to connect electrical devices

GE Intelligent Platforms has announced three new PACSystems RX3i Ethernet modules to connect electrical devices.

“By replacing proprietary networks with an Ethernet LAN and modern automation systems, industrial companies can improve device-level connectivity, network reliability, simplify deployment and leverage data from their machines to improve operations,” said Mark Reitzel, Mission Critical Segment Leader for GE Intelligent Platforms. “Electrical subsystems have a rich heritage of communication standards, and the PACSystems platform now integrates with them.”

The three new modules include IEC61850, DNP3, and IEC60870-5-104 Ethernet-based communication protocols, enabling two-way communication between the SCADA and Intelligent Electrical Device (IED) levels. By uniting the control and software layers under a common architecture, information stored in the controller becomes more accessible and actionable, says GE IP.

“GE Intelligent Platforms understands the value that today’s control systems can bring when open standards are leveraged to connect third-party devices,” Reitzel concluded. “And, GE’s extensive expertise in large infrastructure projects provides us with unparalleled insight into the challenges of OEMs/SIs in this space. Our continued investment in connecting machines with high performance automation solutions for today’s Industrial Internet world is enabling new business models and value added solutions. “
