Our long-standing OEM relationships afford us access to an extended team of equipment experts giving us, and you, a distinct advantage over competing industrial control systems.

Turbine Control Systems
Distributed Control Systems

Nexus Controls, a Baker Hughes busines (formerly known as GE Energy Control Solutions) has successfully delivered positive Distributed Control Systems (DCS) outcomes for customers operating across a wide range of industries.

Our highly reliable Nexus OnCore† Control Systems provides You with a cost-effective, next-generation DCS solution that is extremely easy to learn and manage.

Industrial Distributed Control Systems
Generator Control & Excitation Systems

Our dedicated team of engineering and service professionals specialize in generator control and protection systems. We have decades of experience supplying excitation modernizations for heavy-duty and aero-derivative gas, industrial and large steam, and hydro powered turbine-generators to customers worldwide.

As regulatory and operational requirements evolve, many legacy generator control systems are limited by the technology of their era and require upgrades to improve the performance, security, and compliance of generating assets.

Aging generator controls represent an increased operational risk over time and our team can help owners to develop comprehensive hardware, software, design, and installation solutions optimized to meet their specific automation control needs.

Whether a “controls only” migration, a standalone excitation replacement, or as part of an integrated plant control retrofit project, our team can provide a single point of responsibility to deliver a successful retrofit across a wide variety of generator and control manufacturers and applications.

Generator Control System
Industrial Cybersecurity

Leaning on our deep knowledge and global expertise in critical infrastructure protection, Nexus Controls designs and deploys operational technology (OT) cybersecurity solutions tailored to the unique demands of your industrial plant network.

Nexus Controls can ensure that you have an effective cybersecurity program that meets the needs of legacy control systems, with limited expert resources, while accounting for modern technology and increasing cyber threats.

OTArmor is a flexible and configurable cybersecurity solution specifically designed to protect industrial controls environments. OTArmor offers proactive protection policies and centralized reporting capabilities needed to reduce your threat surface, manage cyber risk and comply with global security standards.

Cyber Asset Protection (CAP) is a security program that delivers validated patches for operating systems and applications. CAP provides anti-virus/intrusion detection signatures to ensure HMIs, servers, switches, and network intrusion detection devices are protected from cyber vulnerabilities.

Mechanical, Instrumentation & Control

Engineered Mechanical and Instrumentation solutions by Nexus Controls have been designed for and have been serving the global Utility, Industrial, and Oil & Gas vertical markets for 63+ years. Our mechanical and instrumentation solutions are offered standalone or as a complete industrial automation system.

Both mechanical and instrumentation solutions can be integrated with our Nexus OnCore Distributed Control System (DCS) or integrated into an existing customer DCS system. We provide full service and maintenance offerings for all our standard and custom solutions.

The Nexus nTrinsic portfolio complies with global technical regulations and standards (e.g., API, ASME, IEC, IEEE, CE, UL, CSA, CCC, EN, ISO, etc.) for the industrial, utility, and petrochemical vertical markets. When you’re ready to modernize your Mechanical and/or Instrumentation and Control systems, we stand ready to help you design a solution that fits your specific requirements, budget, and installation schedule.

Control Soulutions
High-Fidelity Simulation

Nexus Controls leverages its deep knowledge of turbines and plant equipment to provide you with reliable, virtual controller software that provides a safe and accurate training environment for operators, technicians, and engineers to develop the critical skills operating, troubleshooting, and maintaining your valuable plant assets. 

These realistic scenarios can include both existing and newly installed machinery. With a high-fidelity simulation, users are given the opportunity to review critical changes before installation occurs in the plant, or for high-impact, low-risk training of new operators.

This is a vital step in minimizing risk to an operational facility.

In addition, operations and maintenance processes are made more cost-effective by using an accurate, easy-to-maintain, simulation of your plant equipment and control system.
