Technical Details
MODBUS is no longer the preferred method of communicating with GE turbine controllers. GE Turbines OPC Server offers
the easiest way to deliver high speed Ethernet connectivity, redundancy, alarms, SOE etc for any other 3rd party OPC
compliant DCSs/historians.
GE Turbines OPC Server uses Ethernet/TCP-IP communications for high performance bi-directional data transfer making it
capable of transferring high tag volumes at sub-second update rates. GE Turbines OPC Server integrates GE alarms and
events (including SOE) for centralized supervision & effective trouble-shooting with accurate millisecond timestamp
accuracy.
OPC Servers available for the suite are:
GE Speedtronic Mark V & VI OPC Server (GSM)
GE Speedtronic Mark V OPC Server (Direct)
GE Speedtronic Mark VI OPC Server (Direct)

Features & Applications
GE Turbines OPC Server from MatrikonOPC features include:
Direct connectivity to the GE Mark turbine controllers - eliminating the need for an iBOX and GSM greatly
simplifying migrations to any modern HMI or Historian.
Enables you to import controllers information from the TCI PC configuration files (Sites configuration files).
Automatic configuration of OPC Server and tag lists using TCI PC configuration files (Sites configuration files).
Single window to entire plant process
High speed Ethernet communication for enhanced throughput.
Turbine alarm & events consolidation (including SOE) at DCS for centralized management & trouble-shooting
High availability through redundancy at multiple levels
Bi-directional communication supporting control commands i.e. push buttons / set points from DCS saving hard-
wiring
GE Turbines OPC Server communication status diagnostics in DCS
User-friendly configuration tool
Troubleshooting logs.

Alarm & Event Integration
Turbine alarms can be remotely acknowledged from DCS consoles. Any DCS with OPC AE client can integrate turbine
alarms using GE Turbines OPC Server.
Sequence of Events (SOE) is critical for power plants, especially for troubleshooting turbine trip situations. GE Turbines
OPC Server captures SOE in millisecond resolution and consolidates them with DCS SOE without loss or modification of
timestamp accuracy. Unlike conventional MODBUS solutions, GE Turbines OPC Server eliminates investments on separate
SOE I/O racks.
Advanced Alarms features:
Disable and Enable specific Alarms through OPC control items.
Alarm information can be retrieved through OPC DA Items.
Supports process, diagnostic alarms, and logic events via simple OPC A&E.

The GE Turbines OPC Server is OPC Certified!
OPC Certification is the process of ensuring that applications meet the standards specified by
the OPC Foundation. OPC Certification requires extensive testing to ensure true
interoperability. OPC Certification means multi-vendor system interoperability is guaranteed.
If your OPC products are not certified, you need to ask your vendor what sort of guarantees
they offer.
