Electrotek & Dranetz-BMI Introduce Signature System web browser-based Power Quality Monitoring System.
Electrotek’s parent company, World Power Technologies (WPT) acquires Dranetz Technologies and Daytronic Corporation. BMI and Dranetz merge to become Dranetz-BMI.
Electrotek & Dranetz-BMI start a joint development project for Signature System – the first web browser-based Power Quality Monitoring System (PQMS). Electrotek designs the InfoNode software and AnswerModules. Dranetz-BMI designs the 5571 and 5530/20 DataNode networked PQ instruments.
Electrotek is contracted by EPRI to develop the Power Quality Data Interchange Format (PQDIF). PQDIF is ultimately specified in IEEE Std 1159.3, and is used to exchange voltage, current, power, and energy measurements between software applications.
Electrotek is the principal investigator for a project from the US Department of Energy to research ways to utilize the Internet in the electric power utility industry. This project develops the basic principles ultimately used in web-based electric power measurement information systems, such as the Dranetz Signature System, Encore Series Software, and PQWeb.
Electrotek merges with Basic Measurement Instruments (BMI), forming World Power Technologies (WPT) as the parent holding company.
PQView 1.0 is released to manage and visualize the large volumes of data produced by the EPRI DPQ project
Monitoring begins at 223 monitoring sites across the country for the EPRI DPQ Project using BMI PQNode 8010’s and PASS software. Electrotek manages the collection and “sterilization” of data from 27 electric utility companies throughout the United States for the DPQ Project.
