FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- MODCOMP(R), Inc. (www.modcomp.com), a subsidiary of CSP Inc. (Nasdaq: CSPI) and a leading developer of E-commerce and M-business solutions, today announced that Invensys ENE, Inc., a joint venture company of Invensys Building Systems, a leading global supplier of automation and control systems, has selected MODCOMP's ScadaBase E-business System to provide a real-time environment monitoring and reporting. The integrated solution will allow Invensys to monitor air conditioning, fire systems, incoming electrical power, back up generators and ancillary devices at customer sites. Invensys ENE customers will be able to monitor information through ScadaBase and industrial grade servers from multiple, remote sites. ScadaBase will enable users to respond to alarms through a Web browser and a user- friendly point and click interface. Users will be able to log on to local sites and perform damage control functions, or contact local personnel who can take remedial action. ScadaBase is a graphically enhanced, menu-driven, scalable, user configuration suite of software modules for SCADA applications and runs on the Linux operating system. ScadaBase's peer-to-peer communications function allows users to control separate areas yet share common information across the network. ScadaBase will also feed summary alarm information to an Oracle database, where Invensys personnel can query alarms by type, site, or on a historical basis. The ISP market is experiencing significant growth. According to a recent Yankee Group report, revenues are expected to reach $6.78 billion by 2001. By integrating MODCOMP's technology, Invensys is positioned to exploit this market space by delivering their monitoring solutions to ISP facilities. "We are excited to help Invensys deliver real-time monitoring to its customers," said Rob Crigler, vice president of marketing for MODCOMP's E-commerce Division. "By implementing the ScadaBase system, we are helping them develop a comprehensive, remote monitoring solution." By using ScadaBase, Invensys ENE is enabling their customer's employees secure, easy access to the information they need to effectively maintain customer sites. "ScadaBase gives us a true advantage, allowing our customers to effectively monitor and maintain several sites from remote locations," said Jeff Banks, systems sales executive at Invensys ENE.
