EDMONTON, AB May. 25, 2011 - MatrikonOPC™ announced today that IFCS is the newest member to join its Global Partner Network. IFCS will be integrating MatrikonOPC’s full range of OPC Servers with its DABO (Buildings Diagnostic Agent for Building Operation) - a powerful tool that analyzes and stores all data read by the centralized control system. The DABO also suggests corrective actions that can be implemented by the maintenance team even before problems manifest themselves. With MatrikonOPC’s secure and reliable OPC Servers, the DABO product can now be easily embedded into building automation networks around the world.
MatrikonOPC solutions enable IFCS to configure all data transmission parameters by embedding the OPC Servers right into the IFCS solution. This capability allows for secure communication with all kinds of data sources - providing seamless integration across all building management systems and access to data wherever and whenever it is needed.
"Secure access to real-time data is critical in building automation systems and data center applications - MatrikonOPC understands this need," said Drew Brydon, vendor partner program manager-MatrikonOPC. "MatrikonOPC servers provide maximum security and connectivity to help users run their buildings and data centers more efficiently. Since IFCS’s primary focus is delivering effective, innovative asset management software that aims at enhancing buildings’ operations and efficiency, this partnership is a natural fit."
"MatrikonOPC’s solution is opening new opportunities for our products. Using OPC, we are now able to access and transfer any BAS data to our software regardless of the vendor. Thanks to MatrikonOPC our clients can now monitor and control buildings around the world," said Xavier Bonifay, President, IFCS inc.
