The 8 Series also has an integrated integrity engine that utilizes customized algorithms which provide advanced diagnostics to ensure asset protection is not compromised. Coupled with the latest cybersecurity features, customers can comply with the latest NERC/CIP and NISTIR 7628 cybersecurity requirements.

With many industrial processes using a variety of communication gateways, integrating a new product can potentially increase the overall system cost and downtime. GE has designed the 8 Series to include advanced and flexible communication options to make integration easier and faster.

The 8 Series also is backed by GE’s new 10-year warranty—a warranty program for most GE-manufactured protection, control and substation automation products sold by GE’s Digital Energy business. 1 With an ongoing commitment to delivering world-class products that help utility and industrial customers deliver power efficiently and reliably, GE is extending its warranty terms to assure customers around the world of its continuous commitment to quality and innovation.

All GE protection, control and substation automation products adhere to rigorous quality processes, certified to International Standard Organization (ISO) 9001:2008 standards, encompassing the entire product development process from product design and testing to manufacturing and customer support.

The new 10-year warranty is applicable to most new protection, control and substation automation products effective for all sales (shipments) made on or after October 1, 2013. Please refer to GE’s Warranty Terms & Conditions at http://www.gedigitalenergy.com for more details.

When all products in the 8 Series platform are introduced, the complete platform will include feeder, motor, transformer and generator protection that, when coupled with other GE industrial automation solutions such as industrial radios, switches and an electrical control system, will deliver a full industrial automation solution.
