GE Intelligent Platforms announces three new PACSystems RX3i modules that provide infrastructure OEMs and systems integrators with communication protocols as “in rack” solutions.

The PACSystems family of automation controllers, standardized on the market-leading PROFINET industrial network, provides an extremely high performance, reliable, yet simple to configure and install distributed I/O network.

The Ethernet modules align with a growing industry trend regarding the adoption of Ethernet-based communications and work in environments where downtime is not an option. They enable connection at the device level to the software level of infrastructure organizations using object-oriented programming for greater access to actionable data.

The three new modules include IEC61850, DNP3, and IEC60870-5-104 Ethernet-based communication protocols, enabling improved access to data and time-stamping of events via object-oriented programming. This allows users to troubleshoot and identify the root cause of downtime and/or system disturbances, and eliminate those disruptors. The new modules enable 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.

An integrated solution enables rack design, reducing engineering time for OEMs and improving time to market. In addition, the support of fiber optics simplifies system design and provides more reliable communication and greater transmission distance, which should prove attractive for customers.

Features include:
• Integrated solution reduces engineering time and improves time to market
• Support for fiber optics allows for more reliable communication and greater transmission distance; simplifies system design
• Modular system configuration enables greater access to data and insight into operations to improve productivity and uptime
• Standards enable customers to leverage performance benefits
