Original Press Release:
Eagle Technology's ProTeus CMMS Alarm Interface (PAI) is an Industry First
Mequon, WI February 21, 2005, - Eagle Technology, Inc. introduces their newest module, ProTeus Alarm Interface (PAI). PAI is at the heart of ProTeus IV, Eagle's most recent and innovative Computer Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) for facilities maintenance.
First in its Class
Eagle Technology, Inc. is a leading provider of CMMS Software to facilities worldwide. Eagle has developed a unique BACnet® compliant interface that provides seamless integration with most Building Automation Systems (BAS) such as, Trane, Alerton, Johnson Controls, Honeywell, Siemens and many more.
ProTeus Alarm Interface (PAI) is the first of its kind in the facilities maintenance and CMMS industry. PAI facilitates instantaneous activation of work orders based on real-time parameters such as alarms and/or events. It also provides the capability for automated printing, emailing, or paging to immediately inform technicians of alarm status and actions.
Eagle's ProTeus IV system not only adds value by reducing downtime, but it also increases asset life and improves productivity, and it now offers PAI, which adds to the overall value. PAI provides a one-of-a-kind integration with BAS environments to increase productivity and reduce response times.
One of the many values added from PAI is the reduction of labor cost. This is a direct result of real time monitoring and rapid action taken (associated with automated work order generation). PAI directly minimizes an employee's time required to read, analyze, activate and create work orders. The action is executed quickly therefore, reducing labor cost.
Another value that PAI offers is optimum efficiency when handling preventive maintenance. Runtime triggers prevent a maintenance team from over or under maintaining equipment, which equates to less downtime, more efficient use of manpower and an increased life of HVAC equipment. Trend analysis from work order history provides valuable information to implement predictive maintenance strategies.
From a single user to a full-scale application ProTeus IV offers three levels of functionality to fit every business need.
o ProTeus IV Expert - maintenance management software for 1-4 concurrent users
o ProTeus IV Professional - advanced features and up to 8 concurrent users
o ProTeus IV Enterprise - full feature Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) and multi-site environment
Eagle was a participant in "Plug Fest 2004," a 3-day BACnet Interoperability workshop, in September of 2004. The PAI integration with BACnet (along with a dozen other vendors such as Alerton and Tridium) was a huge success. An article on "Plug Fest 2004" read, "Among the firsts..." were "...integration with maintenance management software from Eagle Technology" (http://www.bacnet.com). Eagle's President, Harshad Shah stated, "Having a Bacnet compliant interface to respond to alarms can mean significant savings, reduction of downtime and increased life expectancy of equipment."
