Excellent equipment is one thing, the right service is another. GEA supports you throughout the entire life cycle of your installation. Customized Service tools enable a perfect insight into the control to operate your equipment under optimal conditions.
GEA controls provide you with complete machine data online. Optional GEA Cloud® server solutions and customized dashboards via our GEA UC app show machine status, process data, trends, alarms, etc. Always and everywhere!
Modular and highly flexible production requires modular automation. GEA offers Module Type Packages (MTPs) that contain all the information required for easy implementation in customers' production lines.
What has been modified is saved. Who did what, why, when and where? Full transparency of the change process during development, testing, acceptance test and commissioning ensures highest software quality.
Industrial applications are facing a continuously increasing degree of automation.As a result, the availability of controls becomes significantly important. GEA covers this with special hardware in hot standby mode.24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
The topic of safety plays a crucial role in automation and controls for GEA centrifuges. GEA offers this safety – no matter where and for which application – whether for complex projects for process lines or for supposedly simple tasks on independent machines.
Even small installations are becoming increasingly complex. Unexpected challenges often escalate commissioning procedures. Virtual commissioning by simulating a complete separator installation using a digital twin avoids additional time and costs.
In order to reduce complexity and to focus on user-friendliness, GEA IO control is available for every GEA separator and decanter – for every kind
Next to control and display reliable data, GEA IO is able to capture and evaluate data. GEA IO ensures a safe and reliable operation to maximize the performance and availability of your centrifuge.
Excellent equipment is one thing, the right service is another. With several options of the service concept “GEA Service – For your continued success”, GEA supports you throughout the entire life cycle of your installed systems and components. GEA IO allows you to have a perfect insight into the maintenance schedules to run your equipment in the most optimal conditions.
GEA IO is able to offer much more than today`s control units. This means, that a wide range of sizes is now available in a much more intuitive manner suiting your specific needs. GEA touch panel available sizes are 4, 7, 9 and 15 inch.
GEA X Control
The new interface for centrifuge controls
MTP (Module Type Packaging) is the fastest and easiest way to integrate new equipment and process stages into existing process lines and the overall process control system. No more burdensome exchange of long data lists and hardware contact descriptions to integrate your centrifuge into your on-site SCADA-system. The MTP interface provides all necessary data and improves the interoperability and standardization of automation systems, independent of manufacturer and technology. MTP is faster, less expensive and you are much less dependent on highly specialized experts.
New functions require more performance and that’s exactly what GEA X controls offers. Customers not only expect maximum yield and throughput capacity as well as top product quality from their centrifuges, sustainability aspects like energy and water consumption and the overall CO2 footprint become more and more important. GEA X control and its highly increased data processing capacity is able to handle all those data.
With the GEA UC app you have access to your centrifuge data wherever you are, whenever you want to
GEA Cloud® connectivity via IoT gateway gives you access to your process data from wherever you are, whenever you want to. Cloud server solutions by GEA show your machine status, process data, trends, alarms - whether it is an upgrade for an existing machine – installed in an instant - or a brand-new installation. With standardized or customized dashboards, you are always aware of all real-time as well as trending and historical stored machine data.
But not only cloud computing will be easier in future, X control opens up new possibilities for Edge Computing just as well. Processing power can be easily increased locally and used to implement new interfaces for integration into process line control systems. In addition, this involves the integration of AI algorithms - that is, the control system begins to learn, recognize patterns and draw conclusions. Thus both, our customers and GEA X Control are ready for Software as a Service.
It’s all about security: GEA's understanding of safety starts with the development processes for automation solutions. They are TÜV-tested and certified according to IEC 62443-4-1. With the new GEA X Control generation, various optional cyber security levels are added - adapted to individual customer requirements. For example, every control system runs an operating system, if there are security warnings from the manufacturer, an update is required immediately. With security update management, our customers are on the safe side with GEA X Control.
