GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms , a unit of GE Enterprise Solutions, has reached an agreement with Catapult Software Limited to globally resell its iPower product as a standard Proficy HMI/SCADA - iFIX option.
iPower delivers a unique value proposition for Electrical Transmission and Distribution SCADA applications. iPower combines the strength of Proficy HMI/SCADA - iFIX, with additional functionality including built-in object security, enhanced graphic capability, standard operator interfaces, alarm and event reporting and standard drag and drop electrical utility objects.
The iPower option reduces customer development and maintenance costs while delivering an easier to use solution.
“Using the combination of a standard off-the-shelf HMI package in combination with Catapult’s iPower allows utility operations to implement a true SCADA solution at lower cost point than the traditional SCADA suppliers,” said Marcel van Helten, GE Fanuc Intelligent Platform’s global industry director for infrastructure.
“It clearly delivers better scalability and integration with additional functions.”
“We have been delivering iPower for eight years to the electrical transmission and distribution industry,” said Tony Haresnape CEO of Catapult Software.
“This agreement allows our combined customers to get a complete solution from a global supplier like GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms. As a part of the arrangement, we have ensured that our development efforts are coordinated and focused on delivering integrated value.”
The Proficy iPower option will be available as a standard part to all GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms customers.
