The Proficy Process Systems architecture is designed to provide
a modular and expandable system to meet your most demanding
process control needs. Proficy Process Systems can uniquely
range from a small, one-machine architecture to a large,
multi-machine architecture. This approach means you can start
small and expand your system over time, at your pace. The system
consists of several layers.
The Applications Layer contains the software that powers the information capabilities of Proficy Process Systems, featuring:
The PACSystems RX3i and RX7i give Proficy Process Systems its
flexibility, featuring a common engine which allows you to take
programs that are created in one controller and easily move them
Proficy Process Systems also features Control Memory Exchange, a breakthrough technology we incorporated from our Embedded Systems Business. Through high-speed fiber optics, Control Memory Exchange allows data in one controller to be exchanged and shared with another controller at over a 2 giga baud rate. This allows you to synchronize controllers for distributed control, or reflect the memory state of one controller to another for redundant operations.
GE Intelligent Platforms has always taken an open approach with
our products and technologies. We provide our customers with the
best possible technology and give them the freedom to work with
the devices and instruments of their choice.
Proficy Process Systems continues with that tradition. We understand that when it comes to process control, there are several choices for Fieldbuses. That’s why we chose an Open Fieldbus approach to our system which supports all major Fieldbuses.
We also provide you with a comprehensive portfolio of I/O, allowing you to choose the right strategy to meet your needs. Through OPC, native drivers, and by teaming with companies that specialize in Fieldbus and I/O connectivity, we can satisfy your connectivity needs – putting you in control of your Fieldbus strategy.
