December 1, 2017 – GE Power’s Automation & Controls business announced the release of dual redundancy capability on its PACSystems RX3i CPE400 outcome optimizing controller. Building on GE’s controls experience in deploying mission-critical solutions, the CPE400 is designed to function in high-temperature environments.
CPE400 is an out-of-the-box solution providing customers the confidence to activate a system designed to ensure maximum uptime. With this release, GE is bringing the same solutions to applications in oil and gas, water/waste water and other infrastructure industries with small and large assets requiring smaller footprints.
The CPE400 redundancy is powered by the PACSystems High Availability solution over PROFINET. CPE400 utilizes embedded Ethernet technology in a stand-alone controller. The CPE400 is also effective in applications requiring rugged controls as it operates from -40 to +70 temperature range and supports conformal coated option for corrosive environments.
The CPE400, part of GE’s Industrial Internet Control System, provides real-time deterministic control with embedded Predix technology to deliver advanced redundancy capabilities for increased performance and reliability. This next-generation connected controller is ideal for outcome optimizing control applications in mission-critical environments and uses a standalone controller equipped with high-performance processing to collect and analyze industrial data in a compact footprint.
CPE400 also enables Field Agent technology to enhance real-time programmed control and provides a secure, authenticated data transfer from the industrial asset to the cloud over encrypted channels. The CPE400 is differentiated by not only its processing capability, but also by a control dual redundancy solution that makes it possible to perform maintenance and application updates while the application continues to run.
