Don't Upgrade

Comprehensive Alternatives to OEM Planned Obsolescence

Do you feel pressured to upgrade your controls, protection and monitoring systems? Typical reasons presented to “force” an upgrade include:

  • Regulatory Compliance (NERC/FERC)
  • End of OEM Support
  • Shortage of Obsolete Components
  • Lack of Modern Features

However, you don’t need to upgrade.

  • And More

In case of forced outage or emergency, please contact us. Our experts are available 24/7 to answer urgent questions that will help you start, synchronize, load or troubleshoot your panel without having to wait a day or two for a field engineer.

HMI UPGRADES

Upgrade your existing HMI unit to run Windows 7 with new hardware to overcome the OEM’s decision to stop support of the previous versions. The new HMI running on Windows 7 uses the client’s current Cimplicity and TCI applications, avoiding expensive licensing and compatibility issues.

EPROM BACKUP

For Mark IV and Mark V, GTC’s qualified engineers visit the site to perform a detailed survey and download the EPROMs. In our shop, the ordered quantity of safety copies (minimum two) are created, checked and shipped to site. Shipment includes a CD-ROM copy.

Recommendation:
Use one of the new copies instead of the “master copy.” The “master copy” and the other spares should be kept in separate safe locations.
