Read on for some of the highlights!

SATEC Monitor Support Added

PQView Version 4.14 adds the SATEC Power Quality Monitor handler. The handler integrates the following devices into PQView 4:

  • PM174
  • PM175
  • PM180
  • EM920
  • BFM-II

SATEC devices are integrated as PQDMS Monitors fully leveraging PQView’s polling, logging, data characterization, and notification features. Advanced PQView components like FaultPoint can now be used with data collected by SATEC monitors.

The SATEC handler provides support for:

  • Communication with monitors using the industry standard MODBUS/TCP and serial MODBUS/RTU protocols.
  • Reading status information including model, version, and serial number information.
  • Reading wiring type and scale factor information.
  • Access to real-time meter values and real-time waveform (scope) data.
  • Data Log trending.
  • Download of waveform logs to create event.

Example of a transient event downloaded from a SATEC EM920 Monitor

The SATEC handler is enabled by installing an appropriate license. Please contact your Electrotek Sales representative for more information. If you don’t know who your sales representative is, inquires can be directed to pqview@electrotek.com.

64-Bit Support: What Does That Mean for PQView?

We are no longer bound by small 1GB+ memory constraint; we are now allowed to go even further than before, up to a potential of 16 Exabytes (16 billion gigabytes!) of memory.

More optimal software than ever before: With operating system working in 64-bit, our software should see more support, with the architecture running faster than ever before.

Cutting edge technology: C++ can get up to 1.9/2gb on current hardware; this is to say, as hardware continues to advance in the future, our software is already prepared to take advantage because our new potential maximum is drastically higher than any current hardware enables.
