PowerSpring meter data management (MDM) system is a critical component in realizing the full potential of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) or smart metering, especially for meters used in the gas distribution business.
Honeywell’s PowerSpring MDM system eases IT integration of AMI/smart metering. It facilitates the distribution of the meter data across the utility enterprise by framing the volumes of metering data retrieved from field meters into manageable and familiar information. PowerSpring MDM system provides database repository and gas distribution business logic to:
- Automate the complex process of collecting meter data from multiple meter data collection technologies
- Evaluate the quality of data and publish it in the appropriate format to utility enterprise systems for billing, metering, operations, engineering, customer service, etc. PowerSpring MDM thus creates an immediate positive impact on gas distribution business processes.
As an MDM system, PowerSpring aggregates large volumes of granular interval meter data, and then pre-processes it smartly and efficiently before such data is commercially processed by various other enterprise utility applications. The sheer volume of meter data from gas meters requires consistent, corporate-wide 'best practice' rules for managing the increased potential for data error.
What Problems Does It Solve?
With the deployment of smart meters or AMIs, PowerSpring also handles the storage and distribution of non-billing data and messaging such as two-way commands, Hi/Lo pressure alarms, outage alarms, zero flow conditions, tamper alarms, etc. As the gas utility industry evolves, PowerSpring MDM system uses state-of-the-art technology to ensure compliance with stringent IT data security standards and user policies without compromising on usability.
