Basler AVR & Excitation Systems

GCS is Basler’s authorized distributor in Bermuda, Turks & Caicos, Jamaica, Cayman Islands, Hispaniola (Haiti, Dominican Republic) US/British Virgin Islands, Lesser Antilles (Anguilla through Trinidad Tobago), Aruba, and Bonaire. View Map GCS is your Basler expert for parts, service, support, and system upgrades.

GCS’ experienced and skilled technical teams are highly trained to retrofit Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) Excitation systems fitted on steam, gas, hydro turbines or diesel, gas engines. We retrofit simplex AVR systems to complex redundant configuration excitation systems consisting of brush or brushless rotating exciters, PMG or bus fed excitation systems from field flashing to crow bar protection.

The GCS engineering team retrofits individual AVR systems and AVRs as part of a larger engineered control system, featuring excitation system design, installation, and service for land or marine applications.
