How we do it

GE is committed to helping OEMs achieve optimal performance and connectivity at every layer of
the automation architecture, to maximize what every control system can deliver.

  • Remote development and operation

    Put the latest developments in remote connectivity and cloud-based services to work for your business. Create, deploy, manage and maintain control systems securely from any device—anywhere, anytime. This single point of configuration accelerates design cycles and improves your speed to market. With no software to install and maintain, your engineering, product and service teams can manage content and customer relationships seamlessly.

  • 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.

problem-solving and more insight from every point of data.
