GE Intelligent Platforms Control Platform with Single Point of Connect
PACSystems High Availability with Profinet provides a single point of connect for system configuration. All remote I/O nodes can be configured from one central location. With built-in Ethernet switches and built-in media conversion, the technology provides for point-to-point plug-in connectivity. Users can employ their cable of choice on a node-by-node basis based on the environment and distance and can conduct system maintenance without taking the system offline. They also can schedule device checking, such as a valve not opening correctly based on flow commands, without taking the entire pipeline control down.
