The Series One PLC is still being used by many today! ge series 1 plc conversions   Although your GE Fanuc Series One may still be going strong, do you have a plan in place for what will happen when it finally reaches the end of its life? The Series One PLC can’t compete with its newer counterparts that offer cutting-edge processors and up-to-date software.   Qualitrol International has a conversion program in place for when your Series One PLC expires, or if you’d just like a newer system for your PLC applications. With new technology from the GE Fanuc 90-30 Series PLC, we can help take your operations to the next level.

  • Online diagnostics
  • Monitoring of system performance
  • Programming software that’s Windows-based
  • Expandability to over 4,000 I/O points
  • CPUs with math capabilities, including Intel-based CPUs

Our PLC Conversion Program

Are you ready to upgrade your GE Fanuc Series One PLC system?   Simply send us the layout of your current Series One system, including the number of racks, CPU types, and a list of all I/O modules. Next, send us a copy of your CPU program. If you’re having trouble creating this file, our engineers at Qualitrol can help you obtain your PLC program. Finally, use the existing panel to install the 90-30 PLC system and troubleshoot the wiring and program performance.   Qualitrol has just four steps to help you complete this conversion in a timely manner:  
  1. Build a GE 90-30 PLC system with components that match the configuration of your Series One
  2. Switch your existing program in your Series One to GE 90-30 programming language and upload it onto the 90-30 CPU
  3. Install the 90-30 hardware at the site in addition to wiring the I/O modules
  4. Troubleshoot the new system on the machine

What Qualitrol Provides

With our help during your conversion, you receive a brand-new GE Fanuc 90-30 PLC system with all matching hardware components to work seamlessly with the configuration of your current system. The modules are arranged in the same order as your Series One system so the I/O module wiring matches up perfectly.   We also provide you with a comprehensive wiring diagram of every I/O module and its power supply connection in addition to wiring instructions that show the correlations between your old Series One I/O connections and the new 90-30 connections.   You’ll also receive a converted program uploaded onto your new 90-30 CPU and an additional copy of the logic program for a backup. We offer on-site installation of your new 90-30 PLC system and can even remove your old Series One system, wire all your I/O modules, troubleshoot the programming before starting the system up, and provide hands-on training for all your staff, from engineers to operators to maintenance employees.   Did we mention that we’ll credit you for your existing Series One components? We’ll take your old components and put the credit towards the cost of your new PLC system!
