Nexus Controls was rebranded as part of Digital Solutions at Baker Hughes back in October 2019. However, the Nexus Controls story began long before that. Our business embodies the collective experience of more than a century of control systems innovation from the industry-leading companies on which we are built.
Beginning with The Woodward Governor Company and encompassing longstanding relationships and synergy with General Electric and Baker Hughes, the entire Nexus Controls story demonstrates our intense focus on innovation, customer relationships, and measurable outcomes – the three pillars of our historical success.
Our unique history is what made us a leader in the energy technology, industrial controls, DCS, safety systems, and cybersecurity markets. It is important to us because it is who we are.
And although you might not know us by name … we’ve been here all along.
You need a partner with a proven track record for providing controls that are reliable and intuitive at the right price point for YOU!
Our strength comes from the deep domain knowledge of our global engineering team and proven track record of upgrading controls on a wide variety of mission-critical rotating machinery from an assortment of OEMs.
From Hydro, Gas and Steam turbines to centrifugal and reciprocating compressors, we are the industry leader in delivering turbomachinery control systems. Our regional organizational model is uniquely designed to ensure that our engineers and other technical staff remain close to you – ready to serve at a moment’s notice to keep critical assets online and productive.
While Nexus OnCore† remains our flagship platform, we are able to provide other solutions to achieve our customers’ unique Turbine and Compressor controls objectives.
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 aeroderivative 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 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.
We have crucial experience delivering Distributed Control Systems (DCS) solutions in Industrial, Manufacturing, Simple & Combined Cycle Gas Turbine Plants, Thermal Power Plants, Power Management Systems, and BOP. Our highly reliable Nexus OnCore† Control System provides you with a cost-effective DCS solution that is extremely easy to learn and manage. The thoughtful design of our Nexus OnCore HMI software provides you with a clear understanding of your plant operations as well as a logical process for managing your alarms and system alerts.
While Nexus OnCore Control System is our flagship product, installed at over 1,700 customer sites, we also support other control system platforms if requested, such as the GE Mark VIe. We apply our Nexus OnCore Control System solution to both new installation greenfield sites and brownfield sites – where minimized downtime and reduced costs are a primary factor. In both cases our customers are left with a DCS system providing them with access to information that will drive better decisions and productivity for years to come.
SecurityST® is a flexible and configurable cybersecurity solution specifically designed to protect turbine, plant and generator controls environments. SecurityST 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.
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 more than 62 years. Our mechanical and instrumentation solutions are offered standalone or as system applications.
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.
Global Services from Nexus Controls puts you in control by connecting you to the right expert at the right time to meet your needs. We know that you face challenges with aging equipment and workforce turnover. We know that you need timely execution, intuitive solutions and long-term peace of mind. Our services team shares your risk and provides value-added outcomes.
The industrial control system (ICS) is the digital center of plant operations, responsible for keeping the facility running safely and efficiently. These assets must be maintained and updated on a regular basis to ensure you get the most out of your investments.
Whether you need 24/7 technical phone support, live remote diagnostics, at-site field engineering, parts management, cybersecurity support, or world-class training, we partner with you to securely optimize operations, minimize downtime, and improve safety through our customized service agreements.
