POWERLOGIC Power Server Receives Software Update
August 13, 2003
The POWERLOGIC Power Server has been an incredibly popular Square D product since being introduced in 2001. Today the company announced that the device has been updated with a new software package that includes support for Push / Receive applications. It also has improved speed performance for POWERLOGIC System Manager Software’s (SMS) information manager report generation.
This version also includes support for the new Square D POWERLOGIC Power Meter 800 and Merlin Gerin Sepam Series 40 and 41 relays. This update of the Power Server, ,Version 3.1, replaces Version 3.0 and gives users the same level of support as the widely used POWERLOGIC SMS platform. Customers with Power Server V3.0 units already installed can also take advantage of this update by downloading the upgrade from www.powerlogic.com.
Designed for industrial or large commercial facilities, the POWERLOGIC Power Server is a self-contained server that can be a stand-alone system providing local monitoring, or part of a corporate enterprise. "Customers can plug the Power Server in and get power distribution information almost instantly", said Gregg Morasca, POWERLOGIC Director Sales and Marketing. "It installs quickly and connects up to 64 POWERLOGIC compatible devices. Once installed, multiple users can access data through preconfigured web pages that feature tables, bar charts, meters, and graphical diagrams, alarms, historical trends, reports and waveforms."
The Power Server also contains diagrams with links to all graphic displays, browser based historic reports, active and historic alarm views and waveform capture files. All of this information is accessible through an easy to navigate browser based interface. By mounting the optional touchscreen display (SD700) on power equipment, the POWERLOGIC Power Server provides local viewing of equipment status, real time information, maintenance documents, alarms, trends and more.
Additionally, using a unique intelligent data-publishing feature Power Server can collect information and automatically "push" (or transfer) it to a central site - making it possible to analyze and monitor a large number of sites for strategic load aggregation and power quality decision-making. The central site can be POWERLOGIC SMS on a company's Intranet, or can be hosted by Square D / Schneider Electric through a unique Online Enterprise System Web Service.
