THE SYSTEM FOR AUTOMATION OF INSPECTORS AND FITTERS WORK ON THE FIELD

VSS ORD Monter APP®


The System for automation of inspection and technical maintenance on the field (VSS ORD Monter APP®) using smart phones for automated record and control of interventions on electricity meters, meter points, distribution networks, transformer substations, as well as control measurement and recording electricity consumption at meter points. VSS ORD Monter APP® is used for recording interventions on the field at following energy infrastructure:

  • At measuring points of electricity following activates are recorded:
    • Control of technical accuracy of meters
    • Control of electricity meters reading
    • Placement and control of distribution seals
    • Placement and replacement of meters
    • Disconnection and connection of consumers
    • Other interventions within regular maintenance and emergency interventions.
  • On medium and low voltage distribution network following activities are recorded:
    • Connection of new consumers on the network
    • Low voltage network cabling
    • Interventions on network in case of damage
    • Control of network and electricity socket
    • Other interventions within regular maintenance and emergency interventions
  • On substations of medium and low voltage network following activities are recorded:
    • Access to transformer substations using NFC lock system only by authorized employees
    • Control of technical accuracy of transformer substations
    • Connection of new consumers to transformer substations
    • Interventions on transformer substations in case of damage
    • Regular and emergency maintenance of transformer substations
    • Other interventions within regular maintenance and emergency interventions

VSS ORD Monter APP® System allows issuing electronic work orders for inspection and technical maintenance, that can be filled semi-automatic and automatic with data on interventions and control of energy infrastructure on the field. In addition to this basic function the System provides creation and filling of electronic records on control of meter points, unauthorized connection to network, relocation of meters points, connection and disconnection of meters on the network, placement of new meter on the network etc. As well as monitoring workers on the field in terms of time and GPS tracking of their movements and recording locations where interventions were carried out.

VSS ORD Monter APP® System provides following functional flow:

  • Work orders for inspection and technical maintenance on the field are transferred through dispatcher application from WEB server to smart phones of workers via internet 3G/4G connection, by the principle every worker receives only their own work orders
  • Through software application, workers record all their activities on their smart phones during interventions on the field, with automatic and semi-automatic (manual) data entry, generating (creating) photos with GPS address (coordinate) of intervention and technical condition of the meter, as well as situations present on the field, getting electronic records of control of meter points, illegal connection to the network, dislocation of meter points, disconnection and connection of meters from/to the network, setting up new meters on the network and etc.
  • During interventions on important energy facilities such as transformer substations or measurement groups, workers using application on smart phones allow themselves to access those locations (if they are authorized for such access) by automatic unlock of electronic locks on those facilities and electronic record of the presence in them (GPS address, time of entry /exit, description of intervention, etc.)
  • Thus, formed data on interventions with photos and other recorded data are being transferred from smart phones through FTP server to WEB server of System
  • Supervisors of technical control and maintenance in distribution companies on WEB server of System through controller application perform control of recorded data on interventions by visually pairing data and photos from the field and make correction of them if necessary
  • Supervisors of technical control and maintenance can monitor activity of workers on the field at any time through GPS (coordinate) position on which they are currently and in direct voice or electronic data communication provide information’s and new work orders for interventions
  • After completion of data control on interventions, supervisors of technical control and maintenance issue work orders for new interventions to workers of gauging office for meters, and conclude and archive disputed subjects to legal department for action against unscrupulous electricity consumers
  • After finishing control of technical accuracy of meters, workers of gauging office for meters at the end of each monthly reading can also, based on recorded situations during reading or controlling process, generate work orders for interventions on the field in terms of placing or replacing seals, repair or replacement of meters, etc.
