The Westinghouse GPC 1500A Controller is
a multi-loop or unit controller that can oper­
ate independently or within a Distributed
Control Sytstem. Whether used in a Distrib­
uted Control System or independently, it is
an autonomous controller. Control system
configurations are stored in its memory.
Each GPC 1500A can control complex sys­
tems consisting of as many as six loops
with four controlled outputs. These con­
trolled outputs are continuously tracked by
its track and hold board, which insures safe
process operation under abnormal control­
ler malfunction.
lP
ar
Typical applications include entire boiler,
soaking pit, reheat furnace, process heater
and pipeline override control systems. Other
applications include multi-probe averaging
and sulfur emissions monitoring.
ca
This microprocessor-based system is specif­
ically designed to utilize a building block
concept, which permits easy configuration
of a wide range of complex control applica­
tions. A flexible set of blockware allows
control systems to be designed to meet spe­
cific customer applications without com­
puter programming knowledge. External
hardware is not required to enter new
configurations.

The membrane front panel makes the GPC
1500A suited for harsh industrial environ­
ments since it is sealed and lockable, pre­

lishes more reliable electronics due to sin­

Blockware Configuration
BLOCKWARE refers to the set of pre-pro­
grammed control algorithms in the Model
GP C 1500A. Control Systems are imple­
mented by interconnecting the control algo­
rithms, or control blocks, to perform the
desired control functions. Control blocks do
not reside in pre-defined slots. Blocks are
evaluated sequentially by block number.
Within certain memory limitations which
will be flagged as configuration errors, a
control system may use any block in the
BLOCKWARE library any number of times.
Configuration information is stored in bat­
tery backed up CMOS memory.
The VUM block limits the rate of change o f
