GE offers a Mark V to Mark VIe migration program to upgrade these legacy systems for turbines with minimum downtime. Mark VIe processors, power supplies, and communications are installed in the existing Mark V modules and connected to the existing I/O interface. Field terminations and turbine devices are retained to minimize installation time. Operator interfaces are replaced with modern HMIs, graphics packages, configuration and diagnostics tools, and Ethernet networks.
Features and Benefits
Increased compute power and I/O capacity for new features to improve turbine performance and reliability
Modern, high-speed networks at all levels with Ethernet client/server capability
Compatible with current programs for compliance with cyber-security standards, maintenance programs, and remote monitoring and diagnostics
Elimination of single-point communication failures within the control and options for cost-effective network redundancy between controls and HMIs
Ease of operation with improved graphics, alarm/event management, trending, etc.
Many new I/O types to choose from and distribute in any configuration
More efficient maintenance with one modern software tool for configuration of networks, processors, and I/O boards along with editors, block libraries, and diagnostics
