This is the benefit of automated circuit documentation.
By recording each circuit for a panel as they are created or changed, the
electrician builds a data repository that is extremely valuable to both himself
and his customers. The product is
called the Power Panel Tracking System™.
Using a specialized
database application, you record each circuit, the equipment it feeds, note
whether its dual powered and from where, costs of installing the circuit and
detailed panel information. In so
doing you can quickly perform such miracles as:
· Print color-coded panel schedules or directories at the touch of a
Determine which equipment will be down when you take out a
specific electrical feed;
Find spare breakers for new requirements;
Track installation costs for each circuit;
Monitor actual and electrical usage by box and feed for power
Print data cards to be placed on major equipment
to identify all electrical source(s);
Track panels and breakers for multiple buildings, multiple sites,
and multiple customers;
Provide all of these capabilities for PDU panels as well, and
Create a data repository for emergency preparedness.
software provides extensive capabilities to streamline data collection.
Including extensive edits so that a 2-pole breaker is not entered where a
3-pole is installed, lookup lists for standardized entries, and quick switches
for circuit and breaker removal.
panel sizes can be created for panels from 12 to 68 breakers.
Lookup tables can be easily modified to allow custom tailoring of
entries. Breaker size colors can be
selected and changed on the fly. Panel
modification dates are set automatically whenever panel data is changed.
Data can be entered in single user mode, or it can be installed on a
network to allow simultaneous entry and use of the software and database.
Other features include tracking of manufacturers, suppliers, contractors,
and other firms and contacts. Contact
information for all major electrical manufacturers comes pre-loaded.
Resource information is provided for major engineering organizations, web
sites, reference material and publications.
The product includes a complete glossary of electrical terms, common
electrical calculators and converters. Reports
include spare reports, available capacity (blanks), and power utilization.
Backup and maintenance functions are included to keep your data safe and
access speed at maximum.
