Flexible control system to manage multiple assets
Nexus Control System Overview
In today’s competitive production environment, process industries demand control systems that increase productivity, reliability and quality while lowering cost. GE’s Nexus Control System* is an advanced, fully configurable solution that improves asset visibility, provides built-in troubleshooting and maintenance tools, offers simplified expansion capabilities and reduces overall installation and training costs.
Designed and built using industry-proven control system expertise. The Nexus Control system delivers:
- Low total installation cost
- High operation effectiveness
- A single license, unified software program
- Ease of configuration, expansion and troubleshooting
- Seamless interface
- A single solution for multiple asset or unit types
- Redundant I/O communication and power enables independent replacement of modules without a complete system shutdown
- Three-level system network provides real-time performance with high-speed data exchange where you need it most – between the controller and HMI. Non-critical information, such as data backups, is handled on a separate data highway.
- Logic configuration is completed online to avoid excess system outage or shutdown
- The rich function block library allows the user to customize the application and/or specific user defined sequencing, allowing for adaptability of plant configurations, both current and future.
- Integrated HMI software package includes embedded historian and engineering tools. Historian can be expanded without additional equipment, saving cost and allowing for more analytical capability.
- Easily configured software allows for customization of HMI screen, reducing training time while improving the user experience
- The redundant controller provides enhanced reliability and uninterrupted access
- Remote I/O provides the unique ability of operating at a broad temperature range without loss of performance
- An embedded Sequence of Event (SOE) module helps to identify the root cause of trips with 1ms resolution
