US president learns about control!
Visits high tech Classroom with control hardware
US President Barack Obama visited Hudson Valley Community College in Albany, (NY US) on September 21, to tour a high-tech classroom and give a speech on the economy. The classroom included GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms controllers and operator interface equipment used for the training of tomorrow’s technology workers in areas of green technologies, including semiconductor manufacturing, alternative fuels, and installation and maintenance of photovoltaic, geothermal and wind energy systems.
Featured behind President Obama in the classroom were GE Fanuc Series 90-30 PLCs and QuickPanel View operator interfaces. The Series 90-30 has been the PLC of record in applications, such as high speed packaging, material handling, complex motion control, water treatment, continuous emissions monitoring, mining, food processing, elevator control, and injection molding. The QuickPanel View bundled visualization solution provides the tools required for today’s application needs with a combination of bright touch screen displays and multiple communications options.times
