Airfield monitoring and control panel system
GECI is a manufacturer of power and control system solutions for airfield lighting equipment and navigation aids. With experience in the design and implementation of constant current regulators (CCR) and monitoring and control panel system (SMP), GECI builds failsafe system solutions for airside lighting operations.
Using DSP technology, ferroresonant CCRs produce precise sinusoidal output waveforms for series circuit loads, and provides a real-time picture of regulator performance and status. The touchscreen-based SMP control systems use commercial-off-the-shelf hardware and software products, allowing end users to receive the most advanced technology available at the lowest cost option, all in non-proprietary form.
GECI´s design-build solutions include pre-manufactured electrical vaults that can be installed and commissioned on-site. GECI conforms to all FAA AIP requirements with ISO 9001:2008 registration and ICAO and FAA certified. Quality hardware components, field-proven design, on-going development and a support staff of experienced engineering and field personnel combine to deliver the safest, most reliable systems found on the airfield today.
Programmable logic controller (PLC) activation panel
The PLC activation panel (tower version) is designed primarily to work in a tower building. This unit is adapted for the substation panel to mimic the SMP panel and to supply power to the different auxiliary devices. The system has elements of power, control and communications for configuration in accordance with customer needs. Crash and fire alarms, beacons, wind cones, UPS, surveillance cameras, monitors and others can be operated in remote mode from the panel.
