Achieve the Optimized Factory

HOW CAN YOUR FACILITY BE AT THE FOREFRONT OF
THE NEXT INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION, INDUSTRY 4.0?

From manufacturing plants to warehouses and distribution centers, industrial facilities are always striving to do more with less. But that means working smarter, not harder. Current's integrated approach to energy and the IIoT helps industrial facilities rethink operations at every level: processes, people and power. That's revolutionary.

Industrial Storylines

Doing, not downtime

The path to productivity starts with the right light. Longer-lasting LED lighting helps your facility avoid disruptive maintenance shutdowns. And we can outfit your lighting grid with sensors that wirelessly collect data throughout your space to keep your operations running one step ahead. Track a pallet as it moves from pickup to shipment, or monitor machinery to predict exactly when it needs servicing. Now, smarter lighting means less downtime, less waste and getting more done.

5X LONGER LIFESPAN IS ACHIEVED WITH LEDS VERSUS TRADITIONAL LIGHTING

Bright, smart and safe

When is a lighting grid also a safety net? When it’s built intelligently to help workers do their jobs more easily, with fewer accidents. Today, Current can customize LED systems for each section of a facility, so workers can see clearly no matter the task at hand. Tomorrow, we could integrate sensors that alert workers to hazardous materials or prevent collisions with moving equipment. In the 21st century factory, real productivity happens when people come first.

Harness the power

Heavy machinery. Heating and cooling vast spaces. When you need this much power, cost-saving LEDs are just one way to boost energy efficiency.

Our solar energy solutions can revolutionize how you pay for power, by turning unused outdoor space into a new source of affordable, renewable energy. And by combining solar with energy storage, your facility can automatically shift to the most cost-effective power source during high-demand hours. A nimble, holistic energy ecosystem is about more than the bottom line. It’s about making energy work for you.

$30M WILL BE SAVED BY GE OVER 20 YEARS BY USING ON-SITE SOLAR AT 18 FACILITIES

How we make it happen

  • Gain energy independence by generating lower-cost, renewable solar energy on site.

  • LEDs are an environmentally friendly lighting solution that deliver huge long-term energy savings—and can be integrated with an array of intelligent hardware.

  • On-site energy storage offers reduction in demand charges and helps protect factories and warehouses from grid vulnerabilities.

  • Sensors, motion detectors, Wi-Fi-enabled monitoring, energy load controls and more can be installed into LED fixtures or other hardware to collect valuable data about your operation.

  • POWERED BY Predix

    Predix is GE’s cloud-based platform that collects and stores data to help you intelligently analyze and optimize the performance of your industrial space.

  • ENHANCED BY PARTNERSHIPS

    We partner with vendors and developers on software applications that use our data for everything from asset tracking tools to equipment maintenance.
