Genius Distributed I/O Blocks

Ask an Expert


Genius* I/O systems feature fewer terminations, shorter wiring runs, and simpler troubleshooting for distributed control on the factory floor. Many GE I/O products can be integrated into a single Genius LAN for the most efficient combination of high-density and low-density distributed I/O.

Superior Redundancy for Maximum Uptime

Genius blocks provide predictable system operation in the event of a CPU, bus interface, or network cable failure. When connected in a redundant configuration with two or more CPUs running simultaneously, Genius blocks will shift automatically to a backup CPU if the main controller fails to communicate.

Advanced Diagnostics Reduce Costs and Setup Time

Genius I/O blocks automatically provide diagnostic information on field wiring, power conditions, and loads, as well as the state of the communication network, blocks, and circuits. Genius diagnostics sharply reduce the time needed for initial control and debugging.

Build a modern infrastructure based on smart hardware that enables today’s connected machines to securely push actionable data to the enterprise level. Explore GE’s high-performance, Industrial Internet IO.
