RACO Announces Enhanced Reporting And Analysis Capabilities For The Catalyst® System

Emeryville, Calif., May 14, 2003 - RACO Manufacturing and Engineering Company of Emeryville, CA, is proud to announce the release of the OPS/RACO Catalyst® Interface for the municipal water and wastewater market. This new interface will allow for easy analysis and reporting of data collected from RACO's Catalyst. Users will now be able to automatically generate government-accepted reports – human interpretation of the raw data is no longer necessary.

OPS Systems, Inc. of Rio Rancho, NM, a provider of strategic data management software and preventative maintenance software solutions for water and wastewater plant operations, has developed a driver that allows their software to read Catalyst data logs. This software interface transfers data from the Catalyst into OPS Strategic Data Management software for easy analysis and reporting. The OPS/Catalyst Interface is available in two versions, the OPS 32 and the OPS EZ.

The OPS 32 is a full featured product for an unlimited number of facilities that manages your data, creates reports including NPDES and State DMR's, outputs graphs which analyze and predict process performance, and comes with computer modeling routines which help you determine the effect of process changes. The OPS EZ is a subset of the full product, designed for a single facility with a single computer. It has a monthly spreadsheet for data entry and a full set of reports. The program includes Time Series graphs with trend lines and control limits.

RACO's Catalyst is an interactive data collection, alarm notification and control system that provides up-to-the minute, two-way communication of your critical data – whether through traditional phone, cell phone, pager, e-mail, or fax channels – for your water and wastewater applications.

"The Catalyst is a very robust system, but has lacked the ability to turn raw data into meaningful information," said James Brown, vice president of sales and marketing at RACO Manufacturing and Engineering Company. "Now with the OPS/RACO Catalyst Interface you can easily analyze and graph the data collected to produce regulatory government reports".

For information or to purchase the OPS/RACO Catalyst Interface for your Catalyst system, contact OPS Systems. For information regarding the Catalyst contact RACO directly.
