The Data Management Application handles all of the Device information that is extracted from the networked Devices as well as other data stored on the company network. The extracted information can also be passed to existing databases such as PI, Oracle...

All information acquired from the networked Devices is saved to the company network using the IEEE long file naming format. All files are managed by the File Manager  table. This table is similar to Windows Explorer with application specific functions tailored for the Power Utility Industry. The table columns are used to display the contents of the long file names. An IEEE filename is composed of ten, comma-delimited fields as shown below:

  • Start Date   (Required Field)
  • Start Time   (Required Field)
  • Time Code   (Required Field)
  • Station         (Required Field)
  • Device          (Required Field)
  • Company     (Required Field)
  • Duration      (Optional Field)
  • Type             (Optional Field)
  • Latitude       (Optional Field)
  • Longitude    (Optional Field)

  • Automatic interfaces to MMW and PI databases.
  • Automatic file naming using the IEEE long file
    naming format. This ensures that each piece
    of information is stored with a unique filename.
  • Advanced File search and query engines.
