GE Fanuc completes MTL product acquisition

Monday, 16 June, 2008

GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms has announced that it has completed the acquisition of assets of the MTL Open System Technologies (MOST) product lines, including the MTL8000 general purpose I/O, intrinsically safe I/O, SafetyNet system and process control technologies.

“Customers with the need for SIL2 safety systems or intrinsically safe field-mounted I/O will benefit from this new offering,” said Bill Estep, vice-president of GE Fanuc’s control systems business.

The MTL8000 I/O and its proven technologies is built to withstand the extremes of temperature and vibration, as well as the hazardous and corrosive gases that rule out the use of conventional I/O in unfriendly environments.

SafetyNet is a SIL2 certified system that provides a comprehensive solution for safety-related applications, including process shutdown (PSD), emergency shutdown (ESD) systems and burner management systems.
