POWERLOGIC® ION ENTERPRISE® SOFTWARE NOW HAS EXPANDED POWER QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENTS
May 18, 2007
Square D® PowerLogic® ION Enterprise® power management software is designed to help operations personnel in industrial, buildings, critical power or power utility environments manage energy use and avoid power disruptions. These new capabilities for PowerLogic ION Enterprise include power quality compliance reporting to the international IEC 61000-4-30 Class A standard. Previously compatible with all PowerLogic ION-series power and energy meters, the software now also supports "out-of-the-box" support for compact PowerLogic PM750 and PM710 power meters. A number of system performance enhancements include support for the new Microsoft SQL Server 2005 database standard, wizard-based report configuration, faster network setup and simpler Modbus device configuration.
"We believe this newest release of PowerLogic ION Enterprise represents a significant extension of capability as well as a reduction in cost of ownership for our customers," said Mark Feasel, PowerLogic National Sales Director. "The software has long been one of the market's leading tools for analyzing power conditions and the new IEC 61000-4-30 reports will help quickly verify that their power quality is complying on an ongoing basis with this new world-leading standard. Customers can now also take advantage of integrating cost-effective PowerLogic PM750 and PM710 meters into their PowerLogic ION Enterprise network, including those integrated into High Density Metering cabinet solutions. Together with database and networking improvements, this broadens a customer's ability to build a large, efficient power management system that can better control their energy-related costs and increase productivity."
By using SQL Server 2005, PowerLogic ION Enterprise customers not only stay current with the latest IT standards, but also benefit from enhanced data management and data security that enable deeper integration of power management within their enterprise. System commissioning time and cost have been reduced through the introduction of template-based approach for configuring remote PowerLogic meters or third-party Modbus-capable devices, eliminating repetitive and error-prone manual methods. Connection to remote sites has also been made simpler, as the software has simplified Ethernet configuration and extended its modem support to include any modem that provides a Microsoft Windows-compatible driver. Workflow are enhanced through wizard-based report generation, while system-wide alarming has been improved by allowing alarms pushed from remote devices to trigger a wide range of actions including waveform downloads, email notifications and report generation.
