Infographic: The History of GE Fanuc PLCs

1986- The GE Fanuc Automation Coproration was jointly established in the U.S.A. by FANUC and General Electric.

1987- GE Fanuc releases the series Five PLC.

In the late 1980s, the GE IP Series Five PLC became a popular unit for most mid-range PLC applications. A powerful CPU with a wide array of digital and analog I/O modules made the Series 5 a versatile and popular controller.

1990- GE releases the 90-30 series PLC.

The Series 90-30 PLC is a versatile controller that features redundant power and CPU’s, easy programming, and a modular architecture that lets the user expand the system with their own demands. It is intended to give the user an introduction to the basic components of a GE series 90-30 PLC.

1991- Ge releases the 90-70 series PLC.

The GE 90-70 is designed to meet challenges for
applications such as advanced batch processing,
triple modular, and high-speed processing. Based on
Intel microprocessor technology, these
high-performance controllers can handle large
amounts of I/O and greater process memory for the
most complicated productions.

1998- GE Fanuc releases the Versamax PLC.

VersaMax solution is a single control product that
may be used as I/O, as a PLC, or as distributed
control for up to 256 I/O points. With its modular and
scalable architecture, intuitive, and ease of use, it
saves initial costs for machine builders and
life-cycle costs for end-users.

1999- Ge Fanuc releases Field Control Systems.

With Field Control, GE IP offers decentralized I/O
and decentralized control in a single, low-cost,
modular product. GE IP engineers have refined
proven technology to create a truly modular system.
Each station of a Field Control network can act as a
stand-alone controller, allowing for physical
separation of logical control functions and faster
processing times.

2002- GE releases the Rx7i PLC.

The system is designed to replace the 90-70 Series systems. It uses most I / O 90-70 and offers the most advanced I / O. The backplane still uses the VME standard for third-party interfaces. The Rx7i comes with a single control engine and a universal programming environment to ensure application portability across multiple platforms.

2003- GE releases the Rx3i Controller.

The PACSystems RX3i controller is a Programmable
Automation Controller (PAC). The RX3i features a
single control engine and a universal programming
environment to provide application portability
across multiple hardware platforms and deliver a
true convergence of control.
