Metals - Control Systems

Enabling plant productivity, availability and reliability

GE’s Power Conversion business offers complete integrated control systems, from sensors and actuators up to production coordination, including production and process information computers, HMI, controllers, drives and motors. GE systems enable precise control, high availability and easy maintenance, with maximum benefit for users.

GE’s added value lies in our ability to offer tailor-made systems and complete applications to meet the specific requirements of our customers’ installations. GE solutions for iron and steel making, hot rolling mills, cold rolling mills, and processing lines enable you to meet production targets, with flexible scheduling, while assuring excellent product quality and desired yield.

One of the key components of GE’s control systems is our High Performance Controller. This controller pilots the automation process and technological functions and is used in most of our AC and DC drives, and compensation and large conversion systems. It can communicate easily with any third party products or equipment and fully complies with all international standards and protocols. Based on powerful processors, real-time multitasking operating system, and programming tools, it is specially designed for critical-time applications requiring very short reaction times. It is well suited for demanding processes such as hot and cold rolling mills and processing lines.  The associated in house tool kit provides a powerful suite of software tools for carrying out configuration, programming, debugging, monitoring and maintaining the integrated systems, locally or remotely.
