Programmable Automation Controllers

Expanding On Traditional PLCs

GE Intelligent Platforms created the concept of the Programmable Automation Controller with the introduction of our PACSystems™ family of automation controllers. Expanding on traditional PLCs, GE's PAC controllers provide a highly reliable, high-performance advanced control platform for discrete logic control, motion control, and process control. While GE offers and supports a wide variety of communications protocols to support our customers needs, we have standardized our control systems on the market-leading industrial network, PROFINET, to provide an extremely high performance, highly reliable, yet simple to configure and install distributed IO network.
