Where We Started
In the middle of the 1980's, a strategic alliance between Technical Innovations Inc. and Zeefax Ltd. was formed, combining science, software, hardware and integration services to provide specialized solutions for the power utilities. Highly sophisticated thermodynamic calculations were developed in house to aid in determining the efficiency of power plants. Combining these complex thermodynamic formulas with a new software product called PowerLog as well as revolutionary new hardware resulted in a powerful distributed data acquisition and analysis system that provided capabilities never before found on PC based products.
Where We Have Been
Many PowerLog systems were installed in various locations throughout the world, and it eventually became evident that PowerLog needed more flexibility than what was available with the single type of hardware that it supported. As PowerLog was enhanced and improved by increasing the power and number of different types of compatible hardware, the days of DOS (Disk Operating System) were becoming numbered. Though amazingly enough many of these systems are still operating today, over a decade later. In the middle of the 1990's, PowerLog evolved into EzeePass which was developed for Windows 95 and greatly increased the flexibility of the system in terms of networking, channel count, archiving, and data presentation. Many PowerLog customers eventually upgraded their systems to EzeePass as their computer hardware was becoming old and they wanted to stay current as well as meet new requirements. EzeePass evolved into PowerPAC which is one of the products we provide today and is a common element in our OPC solutions.
