PrimeStone Functional BrochureIntroductionPrimePDA is PDA-based data collection tool used primarily to directly “probe” the Utility’sRevenue Electric or Gas Meter at the utility service entrance. PrimePDA is ideal when remotecommunications to the meter are not available and/or when there is a need for the utility toperform a physical, on-site meter read (such as to detect suspected meter tampering or tocorrelate meter accuracy).Although the PrimePDA application can be easily loaded onto and used with a laptopcomputer, because of PrimePDA’s flexible architecture it is no longer necessary for the utilityassociate to carry a laptop into the field.With PrimePDA the utility can download meters data safely and quickly then send interval,register, and even log file data through any Internet connection, including a wi-fi or a cellularconnection, to the utility’s central data collection center. Data downloaded from the probeddevices (PrimePDA can probe system relays and other protective devices, too) can then besynchronized with other PrimeRead Energy Suite applications; inserting these data into thePrimeRead Energy Suite’s central database. No cradle or other direct connection to thecomputer is required to use PrimePDA.PrimePDA also contains an integrated Route Management solution so that utility associatescan remotely download their route assignments for the day and utility supervisors can monitorand actively direct the activity of their associates in the field.Further, the PrimePDA system is a multi-language solution that possesses the flexibility to betailored to use the terminology that is most familiar to your utility’s personnel.General Features Easy to use with an intuitive and customizable interfaceDownloads data via BluetoothMultiple brands of optical probes are supported formultiple meter typesSynchronize data in seconds with PrimeRead web servicesFully integrated with PrimeRead Energy Suite software forcollecting and analyzing dataFully integrated with the PrimeGuard alarm managementsoftwareFully integrated with the PrimeGrid revenue protectionsoftwareIntegrated route management software is included tomanage associates assigned to the collection devices andto support utility business rules as to routes that must befollowed3

PrimeStone Functional BrochurePrimePDA OverviewThe following diagram illustrates the components involved in PrimePDA and how theyinteract.PrimePDA consists of three functional modules:1. Administration Module - designed for system administrators and users to manage thekey information in the system;2. User Module – designed for use by the in-field associates who go into the field performthe meter reads;3. Web service - The software/communications bridge that connects the central systemand the in-field devices.Administration ModuleThe Administration Module is a work environment that is managed by system administratorsand power users to perform the following tasks: System Configuration: Contains tools for configuring the database connection, settingthe language, and selecting the information fields you want to display for the meters.User Management: System administrators can create/edit/delete users and definetheir access level.4

PrimeStone Functional Brochure Tools for customizing the look ‘n feel of the applications. User Management: A user may have one or more routes assigned by the systemadministrator with each route containing one or more meters. Handhelds can betracked as they are assigned to one or more readers and as they are added or deletedfrom the system. Route Management: A route is a group of one or more meters assigned for an in-fieldread. The devices can be arranged in a sequence defined by an administrator and maybe grouped by different fields, such as addresses or customers.5

PrimeStone Functional Brochure Live Manager/Administrator Update: Keep up to date with the latest versions of theprotocol files that are stored in PrimeRead Energy Suite. Readers with appropriatecredentials can view protocol files without requiring access to the central repository. Jump Code Management: The system defines a Jump Code as the reason the meterfailed its Remote Read (modem dead, meter disconnected, meter tamper, etc.)and/or the reason the meter could not be probed (meter missing, meter dead, etc.).When a User cannot complete a meter read they select a Jump code from acustomizable, drop down list. Jump Codes may be added, edited, and deleted asrequired.6

PrimeStone Functional Brochure Call Log: This application window logs all key information for all calls to the meters.Information such as timestamp, reader, route ID and the meter ID are securelylogged. Call Log information is uploaded to the PDA as needed. Remote uploads aresupported by PrimePDA so the User does not have to return to the utility to updatetheir device.Web ServiceThis web service allows the PDA to connect to the PrimeRead Energy Suite database andexchange information such routes, reads and updates.This process is known assynchronization.During the synchronization process the PDA downloads call results and device readings fileswhile uploading updated information from the route that belongs to that particular reader; toinclude passwords and communications settings for the meter/device.Reader ModuleThe Reader Module runs as a thin client on the handheld (PDA). The User employs ReaderModule functionality to follow the assigned route and to download the required meter probereadings. Data downloaded from the device is stored locally until the PDA is synchronizedwith the central data collection system.7

PrimeStone Functional BrochureAdditional Meter Protocols are constantly under development top meet the needs ofPrimePDA’s ever-growing market. Tasks can be performed as long as the meter supports therequired feature and the proper passwords are provided.PDA SupportPrimePDA supports any handheld regardless of the brand or model, provided it supportsWindows Mobile 5.0, 5.5, 6.0 or 6.5. The handheld must have a native RS-232 port forconnecting optical probes. This port can also be connected to a generic Bluetooth externalmodule in order to have a greater reach as compared to an internal Bluetooth handheld.The handheld (PDA) must support appropriate synchronization communications (WiFi, GPRS,3.xG or 4G) otherwise physical connection to a computer network will be required for PDAsynch.The handheld may include additional devices (camera, GPS, barcode reader, etc.) withoutadversely affecting the feature set of PrimePDA.10
