  • Power at the point of control

    It starts at the device level. Powerful, rugged, compact controllers; industrial PCs; and operator interfaces incorporate capabilities in a single device that were unthinkable a few years ago. Multicore processors and plenty of memory and storage mean we are integrating GE software and hardware to give you more intelligence at the equipment.

  • Smart connectivity

    As new controllers join the network, they seek and map to each other automatically, using a directory service via a secure gateway. The machines’ ability to communicate relevant information directly to one another provides for seamless and resilient connectivity that reduces your human resource requirement.


    Our full line of I/O serves a broad range of applications. We’ve standardized our products—from controllers down to I/O—on PROFINET, the leading industrial Ethernet protocol. This high-speed, open standard makes it easy for you to mix and match any form of I/O, retrofit as needed with minimal downtime, and incorporate third-party products. It’s scalability without the complexity.

Our vision is a connected world. Connected people. Connected machines. Connected data.

And GE is the partner who can help today’s OEMs realize this vision for improved products, more intelligent
problem-solving and more insight from every point of data.
