PACSystems High Availability with Profinet by GE Intelligent Platforms is designed to enable quick decision-making between CPUs and I/O drops while providing a single point of connect for system configuration. Courtesy: GE Intelligent PlatformsGE Intelligent Platforms' (NYSE: GE) PACSystems High Availability with Profinet System is designed to enable companies to maximize uptime, capitalize on flexible configurations no matter the distance between CPUs and I/O drops for faster decision-making. It is intended for mission critical applications in industries like power, transportation, water and wastewater, oil and gas, and mining. 

PACSystems High Availability with Profinet provides one point of connection for system configuration. The remote I/O nodes can be configured from one central location even from long distances. The solution provides for point-to-point plug-in connectivity with built-in Ethernet switches and built-in media conversion. Removing the need for external media converters and Ethernet switches results in reduced cost and setup time. In addition, the user can employ the cable of choice on a node-by-node basis based on the environment and distance, which also reduces the setup time. Also essential to reducing setup time is the system's name based configuration. 

Users can also conduct system maintenance without taking the system offline and can schedule device checking, such as a valve not opening correctly based on flow commands, without taking the entire pipeline control down. Flexible diagnostics supply important data regarding the network topology and the status of all devices. This facilitates cross-vendor, location-specific diagnostics and connects to the Proficy Software suite for turning data into information.
