Hach Links WIMS to GE Fanuc Platforms
Hach Company's Water Information Management Solution(tm) (Hach WIMS) is able to link to GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms' Water Solutions Pack 2008.
This solution presents critical information of water system operations, including process, lab and field data, to plant personnel directly from the SCADA system.
Hach WIMS is scalable water industry-focused software that creates regulatory reports and helps manage water system operations.
Proficy(r) HMI/SCADA - iFIX is a next-generation visualization, control, and real-time information management solution, helping users to drive better analytics and leverage more reliability, flexibility, and scalability across the enterprise. The Water Solutions Pack 2008 includes an industry-specific dynamo library, NERC recommended security features, and tight integration with Hach's WIMS software.
"In today's economic climate, utilities are faced with downward pressure on costs, while also being challenged to reduce carbon footprints and increase testing with tighter specifications. Effective and sustainable water information management solutions are imperative to face these challenges," Chuck Scholpp, manager of IIM Business Development, said.
"The direct link between the GE Fanuc and Hach products allows operators and managers access to critical water system information that is a combination of process, lab and manual data, without leaving GE's Proficy HMI/SCADA - iFIX environment. This collaboration is a natural combination of expertise in the water industry to provide more immediate and complete information to manage the many challenges utilities face."
