Distributed I/O

Read More

GE provides high performance distributed I/O for demanding control applications. Our I/O and Controllers are connected by Profinet – the market leading industrial network. Using this common interface allows users to mix and match their preferred Controller with the I/O that best meets the needs of each part of the application. Our I/O portfolio has a wide range of packaging options covering the full spectrum of needs from simple discrete to high speed analog control, and from factory automation to process industries with harsh environments. We deliver best in class flexibility, performance, reliability and connectivity.

The GE RSTi delivers high performance automation for today's connected world.
