Megger offers a variety of software for electrical test and measurement applications, such as PowerDB. This advanced software package provides data management for acceptance and maintenance testing jobs. It offers versatile capabilities, convenience and intuitive operation.
PowerDB organizes customer and contact information into a quickly searchable database. Each individual record contains details about services provided, order date, sales contact and invoice information. This data and the related test results can be acquired directly from test instruments, imported from various sources, or entered manually. The data can also be conveniently transferred between databases for field use and a master database.
PowerDB can be used to trend results over time, track maintenance intervals, maintain calibration data, and more. In addition, the software enables personnel evaluation. Power DB can track the time spent testing and provide job and device productivity reports. This capability also provides valuable information that will help in bidding future jobs.
Ease of use
PowerDB uses more than 300 standard test forms. These forms have been used by industry specialists for over 20 years, and are designed for the majority of electrical apparatus in use today. From batteries, transformers and generators, to cables, relays and switchboards, PowerDB supports all types of devices.
PowerDB can also create complete test documentation packages in a single step. These packages include test reports, field service reports, comment and deficiency summaries, and a table of contents. Test documentation packages can then be easily delivered via email, web server, CD-ROM or Adobe Acrobat.
The system is intuitive to use, as the printed forms and the data entry screens are identical. This means that what operators see on the screen is exactly what gets printed in the reports.
Further details, including a data sheet, frequently asked questions and a presentation on the software, are available on the PowerDB page of the Megger website. The company also offers software for protective relay testing, breaker analysis and power quality analysis.
