    2. Better device data access • PrimeRead software gives utilities multi-vendor, automated data collection offers large-scale commercial and industrial (C&I) data acquisition. • PrimeRead software provides: • Communications network flexibility • Configurable data validation • A true Windows interface • Meter data management for AMI • Validation, estimating and editing

    3. PrimeRead software summary • A multi-tier, open architecture makes PrimeRead software flexible and scalable • Support for industry-standard SQL Server and Oracle databases allows data exchange with other corporate information systems such as: • Billing • Operations • Customer Information Systems • SCADA • Power Quality Systems • Energy Balance and Losses • ISO/RTO • Securely store information in one central database

    4. PrimeRead software summary • Easily read and display power quality information from your meters • Import interval data, waveforms, PQ events and more from multiple utility devices (electricity, water and gas)

    5. PrimeRead software operations • Business Analysis for easy ad-hoc reporting, scheduled reporting, graphing and exporting data • Set up call schedules, make on-demand calls and perform troubleshooting communications • Configure devices, system parameters, customer information, TOU schedules and groups • Unpack data retrieved from meters and store it in the centralized, secure database. Easily troubleshoot and log issues with this tool • Configure automatic and user-defined validation routines and schedules, or access the estimation and editing functions • *Unlisted modules are Importer and I/O

    10. Landlines Cellular (TDMA, CDMA & GSM) Cellular digital CDMA 1X-RTT/EVDO, GPRS/EDGE Fixed IPs Dynamic IPs CDPD (point to point and TCP/IP) Satellite (TCP/IP) Daisy Chain master-slave Optical Probes ANSI IEC Radios Utilinet – Cellnet TCP/IP Power line carrier (PLC) RS-232 Direct RS-485 (multi-drop) Ethernet Line Simulators Line splitters X25 Multi-networking

    11. Multi-tiered, open architecture • Flexible enough for application distribution over a network environment or over a geographically dispersed area • Dynamically updates all stored information each time you perform an operation • Supports industry-standard SQL Server and Oracle databases • A native 32-bit application provides all current Windows operational and connectivity options and decreases the learning curve

    12. Open architecture Analysis and Reports Data Collection Data Collection Validation Central Data Base: Oracle SQL Server Client – Server Multi-tier Mobile Users PDAs W2000, XP, SP2, 2003 Server

    13. Backward compatibility with legacy systems • PrimeRead software’s relational database provides: • Fast import of historical data into the software • A universal import and export engine for exporting data as flat files or XML to billing systems, SCADA or data warehouses: • Support for specific formats: • MV-90 Masterfile import • Lotus PRN import/export • EU export • MDEF export • EDI 867 import/export • Lodestar export • XML • CMEP

    14. Advanced user interface • Outlook-style interface with: • Navigation bars • Floating toolbars • Develop grids that allow you to: • Group • Sort • Filter • Select columns • Create ad-hoc reports with grid information • Grid information can be exported to: • Text • HTML • Excel • XML • Grids allows volume handling of data

    15. Global parameters with individual customization • On-line data validation for the following validation checks: • Energy Tolerance • Interval Tolerance • Zero Tolerance • Non-Zero Tolerance • Time Tolerance • Overflow Tolerance

    16. Global parameters with individual customization • DST • Global parameter that may be customized individually • Time Synchronization • Global parameter that may be customized individually

    17. User-defined customer and device fields • 50 User-defined fields for: • Customers • Devices • These fields are associated in the database and: • Link customer data with external information systems • Link device data with external information systems • Store custom information

    18. Channel, registers and event download • User-defined channel definitions • These are associated to the physical channels inside the devices • Registers may be downloaded from the devices • Registers may be selected for download • Events and power quality data may be downloaded

    19. Advanced port group functionality • For serial port data collection only • Allows similar ports on several workstations to launch calls • Scheduled calls are in the database, not the data collection station • Provides load balancing between the data collection workstations • Provides a fault tolerant operation • Allows specific modem configuration strings to be assigned to port and device combination

    20. Online data analysis • Business Analysis Module features: • Online data analysis using decision cubes • Based on creation of simple filters: • Multiple filters may be applied • Unlimited number of filters may be created • Filters may be used in other areas in the application • Graphs may be generated from the cube data • Multiple types of graphs

    21. Groups and data structure • Unlimited number of groups or data structures may be created thus allowing: • Totalization or aggregation • Device characterization and data mining functionality • Groups, which may be used for: • Reports • Decision cube in Business Analysis Module • Call groups • Totalization is accomplished using dynamic tables

    22. Time of Use • Based on creation of TOU calendars • Create an unlimited number of calendars • Apply any of the following attributes: • Seasons • Day types, each day type may have its own TOU rate structure • Up to 365 day types for each calendar • TOU rates • Up to 48 changes per day • The calendars are applied dynamically to the database • View the calendars applied to the database in the Business Analysis Module

    23. Scheduled report generation • Based on Crystal Reports • Create an unlimited number of reports • Or choose from more than 100 standard reports • Schedule report generation • Generate reports in a variety of formats including: • EU • Lotus PRN • EDI 867 • Lodestar • Excel • HTML • Word • CSV

    24. Automated data collection • Calls can be permanently scheduled: • Individually • Using groups • Data collection may be accomplished using multiple data collection stations • No user intervention is required for data collection

    25. Online data validation • Validation is automatic for selected channels • The channel data has a flag that allows verification of the validation from an external source • Validation may be accomplished on any workstation in the system • Interactive data estimating • Manual data editing

    26. Audit log for configuration and validation • Allows tracking of changes made in both Configuration and Validation modules

    27. In conclusion… • PrimeRead software is an easy to use tool • Provides multi-vendor, automated data collection for utilities • Offers communications network flexibility, configurable data validation and a true Windows interface • Makes C&I data collection more flexible, scalable and reliable
