The desktop client for users
Meter Asset Tracking – PowerTrack Community Edition allows a company to track any type of Meter (Electric, Gas, Water) from cradle to grave.
Any Device Asset Tracking – PowerTrack Enterprise Edition allows a company to track any type of device from “Cradle to Grave.” Example: Meters (Electric, Gas, Water), Current Transformers, Voltage Transformers, Comm Devices (Internal and External), Correcting Instruments, Regulators, Relief Values, Network Devices (Collectors, Radios, Routers), Tools, Rubber Goods, Hot Sticks and so much more.
AMI/AMR Device Support – PowerTrack can support AMI tracking for meters to include the entire history of an AMI device characteristics tracking like AMI ID, MAC Address, ESN Numbers IP Address, Program ID, Firmware versions, and much more. PowerTrack also will all AMI/AMR device associations and disassociations for an easy historical view.
Transactional History Support – PowerTrack is built on using transactions to log any action to a device for full historical tracking. Transactions include Purchase, Tested, Stocked, Shipped, and Received. If PowerTrack is integrated with a Billing System, it can also track Install and Remove transactions. Use the device view screen to see a full historical view of all actions associated with that device.
Barcode Scanning / Printing – PowerTrack supports barcode scanning for any type of barcode (device, box, pallet, etc.) to avoid manually typing errors. PowerTrack supports printing barcode labels for any device, box, pallet, etc., using barcode printers. All barcode scanning and printing hardware can be purchased through PowerSolve for a one-stop solution.
Table Viewer/Editor – View all tables in PowerTrack. Allow specific users to be able to add/edit/remove data for any table. Allow read-only access for users to view all data in PowerTrack. View data for any device by entering the device identification number (DIN). Attach documents to a device such as photos, diagrams, text files, or any other type of file specific to that device for users to view.
Import Field Test Data Wizard – Import field test data from PowerMaster (Meter, CT & VT), RM11/RM17, and Probewell units. Data can be imported directly from a direct connection to the PowerMaster unit or upload RM11/RM17 & Probewell files. All data is imported into a grid for data validation and user review/modification before submitting to one central database.
Reports – Comprehensive list of reports dealing with day-to-day operations, including User Productivity, Device by Status, Device by Location, Devices Retired, Devices Shipped, Devices Tested, Packing Manifest, RMA Manifest, User Productivity, and much more. Each report has built-in filtering and column view/hide options to customize the report further. Customized reports can be saved as separate reports for the user to run multiple times without having to refilter the main report each time. Reports can be exported into various formats and saved as individual files.
(Customize) Custom Reports – New reports can be easily created and added to the list of pre-built reports to meet a customer’s need.
Batch Edit/Delete – The ability to update/delete multiple records at one time in PowerTrack by using filters, tables, and fields to pinpoint the exact data to be transformed.
Query Builder – Build queries using a visual interface to add tables and columns. Link multiple tables together. Custom-built queries can be saved. Data can be exported into various formats (PDF, Excel, CSV, Text).
Device Grouping – Gives PowerTrack users the ability to link any device in PowerTrack to another device. Multiple devices can be linked at one time. Also, it can be used to unlink a device from another device or group of devices. If a user pulls up the device in the table view, PowerTrack will show all the devices linked to that device.
RMA Tracking – Create RMA manifest to return devices to the manufacturer for repair. Devices can be scanned or imported via a file. Once the manifest is complete, print a manifest report with all the devices and attach it to the vendor shipment. View all open RMA manifest pending return from the vendor. Once devices are returned from the manufacturer, update the devices returned to put them back into stock with any updated information from the vendor. Create manifest reports that can be exported and saved.
Repair Tracking – Log repairs for a device, Firmware updates, Reads, or place devices on Hold until they can be re-released for use.
Retire Devices – Retire devices by scanning, typing, or importing a list of devices. Multiple devices can be retired at one time. User is not limited to using one ‘retire’ reason type when mass retiring devices. Create retirement reports when completed to exported and saved.
Sample/Periodic Testing – PowerTrack supports using ANSI Z1.4 and ANSI Z1.9 for Random Sample selection and testing. It also supports Periodic Testing to pull meters set to test every X number of years. Reports can be generated for PUC submission.
(Customize) – Determine Periodic Interval by pulling Peak KW data from Billing or another system.
Device Packing – Assign devices to boxes and pallets. Print labels for boxes and pallets. Boxes and pallets can be scanned later for shipping, receiving, or stocking. Create Packing Manifest reports for printing, exporting, or saving.
Device Shipping – Ship devices by scanning individual device id, box id, or pallet id. Create Shipping Manifest reports for printing, exporting, or saving.
Device Receiving (Existing) – Receive devices by scanning individual device id, box id, or pallet id. Capture meter reads when receiving into the meter shop. Create Receiving Manifest reports for printing, exporting, or saving.
Device Receiving (Third Party) – Receive devices from Third-Party processing companies by uploading data files. Capture test results, meter reads, program id, and firmware changes. Create Receiving Manifest reports for printing, exporting, or saving.
Device Receiving (RMA) – Receive devices by loading files from the manufacturer to receive devices returned from the mfg. Create RMA Manifest reports for printing, exporting, or saving.
Device Receiving (New) – Receive devices by loading XML files from the manufacturer to purchase new devices into PowerTrack. Purchase Group devices can be sample tested to determine if Purchase Group should be accepted or rejected. Create Purchase Group Manifest reports for printing, exporting, or saving.
Kiosk Mode – Allow users to self-check-out devices to their individual user id or truck by scanning a badge or barcode. Devices are then scanned and assigned to the badge or truck id used at scan in time to track devices down to a granular level. Unused devices can be checked back into stock in the district or warehouse.
Electric Meter Shop Testing – PowerTrack supports electric meter testing to any test board on the market today by using plug-and-play drivers. PowerTrack can connect and run a test using the PowerTrack UI from any WECO, TESCO, VISION & RFL 5800 test board. Data points stored in PowerTrack tell the test boards the meter-specific information to correctly energize and test the meter on the board. All test data are stored in one central database. Capture readings and verify AMI/AMR information while the meter is energized.
Gas Meter Shop Testing – PowerTrack supports gas meter testing to any Honeywell Snap 3 or MMX prover using plug-and-play drivers. PowerTrack can connect and run a test using the PowerTrack UI. Data points stored in PowerTrack tell the prover the meter specific information to correctly test the meter. Capture dial readings at the time of testing. All test data is stored in one central database.
CT / PT Testing – Import test results directly from Knopp and Omicron test boards into PowerTrack. Determine Pass/Fail by either TCF or Parallelogram or both.
Other Device Testing – Since PowerTrack can support tracking any asset device, it can also store Pass/Fail tests. This is useful for tracking Rubber Goods test or Tools to know the test history and if a device needs to be replaced.
Device Calibration Tracking – Track devices for calibration history and alert users when equipment needs to be certified or tested and not allow devices to be used if calibration acceptance has been performed. Store digital calibration certificates for devices.
Field / Manual Test – This allows users to manually enter any test results from a test performed in the field or not connected directly to test equipment. PowerTrack calculates the Pass/Fail based on the criteria set up for that device type.
