The <GCE> Global Controls Interface provides all the normal functions of the currently installed GE interface while going a step further by allowing for flexible and detailed preventive maintenance analysis and troubleshooting not currently available unless upgrading to GE’s MkVIe ™ at a considerable higher cost.
This solution is utilized when a client needs a portable interface for MkIV* & MkV GE Speedtronic™ turbine control panel systems.
The <GCE> product allows the customer to have a full engineering workstation that is capable of normal GE <HMI> server functions, however, it does not provide an operator interface or any Historian capabilities.
Troubleshooting unit trips or events is much easier when running the <GCE> software, utilizing Global Controls’ SwiftChart solution with the following features:
Sequence-Of-Events continuously running at 8 scans per second (predefined High Speed (HS) points)
Sequence-Of-Events continuously running at 1 scan per second (All points other than HS)
All TRIP logicals monitored at 8 scans per second (predefined HS points)
Alarms time stamped with the SOE data
Capability of jumping from alarms directly into software logic
Clients looking to consolidate multiple on-site OEM devices (Allen-Bradley, Fanuc, Siemens, etc.) into one system application with a common look and feel can purchase or upgrade to the <GCS> product line.
Global Controls has developed special drivers for the product to facilitate a connection with the DCS control system, allowing for it to communicate via Modbus or GSM. Such an enhancement would allow <G> gateway type communication used for DCS communications, as well as with other software packages.
* Based on an existing MAUI CSF interface
