In addition, the latest generation web browsers no longer support the plug-in architecture that is required to use the Java Plug-In. Therefore, automated software updates, and free system support for our legacy, Encore Series Software (ESS), will be discontinued as PQView DE replaces ESS.

System Software For All Applications, Large & Small – Today & Tomorrow

System software for communications, visualization and reporting is a key component of any fixed monitoring system. PQView DE, the standard offering from Dranetz is for use with all Dranetz systems products, including the HDPQ DataNode, 61000 series, Signature System, ES2xx meters, and others.

PQView DE is a derivative of our PQView software. As your needs grow, PQView DE users have a seamless upgrade path to the more powerful PQView® software which is intended for larger applications, applications that include other manufacturers products, or those that require enterprise software. PQView enables users to organize data from a variety of instruments, such as power quality monitors, microprocessor relays, and digital fault recorders. It also stores site characteristics (e.g., substation, bus, feeder, latitude, longitude, etc.) and event information for voltage sags, transients, and faults (e.g., root cause code or text description). PQView brings all this information together in one relational database and provides the means to automate both the loading of new data and the generation of monitoring reports.
