HMI Upgrade

OEM-Alternative Software Solutions

The product line Gas Turbine Controls (GTC) offers to clients was developed as an OEM-alternative replacement to the current GE <I>, <G> and HMI operator interfaces for GE Speedtronic™ Mark IV and Mark V turbine control panel systems. As a complete solution, the software uses Cimplicity as the HMI operator graphical interface, with optional Historian capability.

Benefits of the GTC Product Line

  • Troubleshooting Unit Trips or Events Made Easier
  • Sequence-of-Events Continuously Running
  • Predefined High-Speed Points
  • Sequence-of-Events Continuously Running
  • All TRIP Logicals Monitored
  • Capability of Switching from Alarms Directly into Software Logic
  • Export Data Directly to MS-Excel, MS-Access and MS-SQL
  • Industry Standard Software:

  • Cimplicity
  • Historian (Optional, 1500 or 2000 Points per Unit)
  • Three Day Training Available

The offered system can also be used to consolidate multiple onsite OEM devices (Allen-Bradley, Fanuc, Siemens, etc.) into a single system application with a common look and feel, successfully modernizing and upgrading your turbine controls system.

Minimizing the Impact of Upgrading

The System allows you to easily interface to your existing Arcnet network by directly accessing the controls system using off-the-shelf components. To minimize training of operators while maintaining their confidence level to operate the unit, we can also reproduce the original operator screens, while providing added value with:

  • No Unit Down-Time During Installation
  • No PROM Changes are Made
  • Installation, Commissioning and Network Configuration About Four Hours per Unit
  • Easy-to-Upgrade through Future Software Releases
  • Utilizes Off-the-Shelf ARCNET Cards
