CHICAGO, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- InStep Software, LLC, a leading provider of real-time software systems and solutions, announced today that South Mississippi Electric Power Association (SMEPA) has selected InStep's eDNA historian software to collect, store, display and report information from SMEPA's GE XA/21 Energy Management System, Foxboro I/A DCS, and other plant control systems. The software will be used to support key operational decision making for over 1,600 miles of high-voltage transmission line and generation plant operations and maintenance for SMEPA's plant Morrow. InStep Software President John Kalanik says, "We are very pleased to be working with South Mississippi Electric Power Association. It is always exciting to see how two distinctly different uses of the historian can provide significant value to the company." SMEPA Control Systems Manager Tommy Clark says, "In evaluating InStep's eDNA historian SMEPA was impressed with the technical ability and the setup for reliability which eDNA offered. We were also excited about the tools which surround eDNA for user access. While eDNA is a superior product with end user designed interfaces the greatest value we found was the people. Any company can produce a momentary great product but to produce a sustained superior product takes superior people and we have found such within InStep. We look forward to a long and beneficial relationship."
