CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA, APRIL 14, 2008 - GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms reached an agreement with Catapult Software Limited to globally resell their iPower product as a standard Proficy HMI/SCADA - iFIX option.

iPower delivers a unique value proposition for Electrical Transmission and Distribution SCADA applications. It 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.

The Proficy iPower option will be available as a standard part to all GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms customers. iPower is currently successfully used in installations worldwide.
