Meter Manager Asset and Inventory Management

TESCO Meter Manager interfaces with competitors' software and hardware as TESCO understands there are numerous products in use by the industry besides our own. In addition, TESCO Meter Manager Modules also provide a hardware interface for field and shop equipment, providing a complete solution for our customers. There is no competitor on the market that has the combination of software and metering expertise that TESCO has.

TESCO Meter Manager handles every aspect of an electric or gas meter shop, from tracking meters and equipment through the shop to performing any required testing from sample testing shipments to 100% testing.

Utilities can import manufacturer test data, import test data from the meter test boards, and enter test information directly. Today's meters require more than just an accuracy test; it is possible to capture test information for mesh radios, ZigBee modules, remote-service switches, cellular modems, firmware versions or any other component of the meter.

Cradle to grave inventory management and asset tracking of assets and their configurations
  • Electric, Gas and Water Meters - Legacy, Electromechanical and Solid State
  • Device configurations and attributes
  • Meter firmware/software versions as well as communication firmware versions
  • Multiple Communication and Network Devices (Access Points, Relays, Bridges, Extenders)
  • Automated inventory (mass updating of manufacturers files)
  • Handheld Scanners for shipment receipts and processing
  • Inventory movements and tracking













All components attached to a meter can be tracked. This can include permanently mounted components, such as a mesh radio with its own ID and removable components.

  • Records results of any type of test, including not only HL, LL, demand, and power factor, but also mesh radio,
    ZigBee, modem, and remote service switch
  • User may add any other type of test required (e.g. Instrument Transformer testing)

Inventory Management

TESCO Meter Manager Meter Invenotry Module is designed for comprehensive inventory control of meters and other serialized meter equipment, and will work in conjunction with the utility's customer information system (CIS). This module will track the meter inventory for all of the technicians, trucks, and service centers.

The system is designed to handle any serialized energy measurement equipment. All items can be assigned to a location such as a field location, a truck, a meter shop, a district warehouse, or even the manufacturer (if something is returned for warranty). Items can be scanned in and out of locations. TESCO Meter Manager opens all bar code scanners as true bar code scanners rather than keyboards, allowing use of the scanner regardless of the cursor location on the screen.

 

Standard Features
  • Tracks the location of every serialized energy measurement device
  • Interfaces with both tethered and untethered bar code scanners
  • Imports vendor data files containing meter serial numbers, attributes, and factory test results
  • Creates meters in the customer's CIS (if interfaced)
  • Tracks the specific location of a meter down to the shelf level
  • Supports warehouse mapping with an "X marks the spot" location for each meter
  • Supports containers: meters may be in a box, bin or pallet and the entire container may be moved within a warehouse, shipped, or retired as a single transaction
  • Min/max inventory quantities are supported for each warehouse
  • Physical inventory counts may be done at any time, with complete tracking of discrepancies
  • Full traceability of inventory transfers, with transactions to both ship and receive
