Version 4 Features

The latest version of PressureWEB brings incredible now monitoring capability and convenience to your browser-based PressureMAP/PressureWEB system. If you are currently using Version 3, here are some of the new features you can expect to see when you upgrade:
  • Enterprise View. PressureWEB 4 includes a new Enterprise View utility for your PressureMAP system*. Two viewing options are available: Data View and Map View. The highest access level to either of these options is Enterprise View, which includes all of the PressureMAP systems in an telephone operating company, organized by region, state, district and office.

    Data View includes a menu-based navigational system and spreadsheet data in column format. Depending upon the selected viewing level, data includes items such as Number of Offices, Offices not Reading, Devices, Disabled Devices, Devices not Reading, Alarms, Validated Alarms, Average SQI, etc. Clicking on a specific office name generates a standard Device Status by Pipe View.

    Map View replaces the grid data report with a full color geographic map. PressureMAP system locations, offices, pipe routes, etc. are overlaid on the map, and users can click on a highlighted location to generate a closer map view of the selected area. Another access point to the Map View is via a map icon located on one of PressureWEB's View Options or the Specific Device Information page.

    * Note: This feature is available beginning with PressureMAP Version 29.
  • Direct Editing of Office and Device Data. PressureWEB 4 makes it possible to add, edit and delete office and device data within the PressureWEB web browser. Access to this feature is available from a new drop-down Edit menu located on PressureWEB's main navigation bar. The Edit menu appears on designated PressureWEB pages, such as All Offices, My Offices, Device Status Views and Specific Device Information. Like the original PressureMAP text editor used for data entry, PressureWEB's editor also requires a separate password for access. To complete the database editing capability in PressureWEB 4, two additional editing applications are provided: the MEGA Office editor and the User Management editor. Each of these applications requires a unique password to prevent unauthorized access to data.
  • Background Color Control. PressureWEB Setup preferences has been modified to include a new checkbox that enables you to eliminate some of the alarm-generated colored backgrounds that appear on the various PressureWEB displays. By default the box is checked, which results in PressureWEB producing a red background for all major (four star) alarms only. If you uncheck the box, both major and minor (one to three star) alarms will be displayed with colored backgrounds. As before, minor alarms will be shown with a yellow background color. The checkbox selection or default setting applies also to the new mapping application.
  • Font Size Selection. Another Setup preferences improvement makes it possible for users to change the font size of the PressureWEB displays. This upgrade has been made primarily to allow for easier reading of display information on mobile devices. If a mobile device is used and no front size preference is designated in Setup, PressureWEB displays will be presented in 17 pixels. This feature eliminates the need to zoom in on information displayed on the mobile device.
  • New Pegged Devices Report. PressureWEB 4 includes a new Pegged Devices Report, which is available as a selection on the Troubles menu located on the All Offices, My Offices, Device Status Views and Specific Device Information displays. When selected from the All/My Offices displays, the report lists the Total Flow Devices in each office, the Pegged Count in each office and the Pegged % relative to the total flow devices in the office. Clicking on an office name on the Pegged Devices for All Offices display, for example, produces a Pegged Devices by Pipe View. This display shows all pegged devices on the route(s), Access number, Address, OAU, Device Type, Current Reading, alarm status, etc.
  • Modified OAU Column Positioning. PressureWEB's OAU column on the various displays has been moved from its original position next to the Curr (current reading) column to the column position after Address. This eliminates possible confusion when scanning the report for reading information.
  • Chatlos Circuit Number Data. Circuit Number (CKT) data from an original Chatlos office that has been updated to a 289H or uM260 monitor is now included on the various PressureWEB Device Status displays and the Specific Device Information display. If there is data in the CKT field of the PressureMAP device record, this information will now appear on the Specific Device Information display and on the Device Status View pages in a Circuit # column located after the Device #.
  • Device Status View Addition. A new Device Status by Sheath View has been added to PressureWEB 4 to make it possible to sort devices according to their sheath association in ascending order. Please note that it is possible for a device to be listed under multiple sheaths.
  • New Alarm Type Data Field for TX Technologies Monitors. An Alarm Type data field has been added to the Specific Device Information screen for all TX Technology monitors, such as Chatlos, Hercules, and Teleducer. This field is used for contact alarm devices that are shown as Normally Open (N/O) or Normally Closed (N/C) to determine if an alarm is either an Open or a Short.
  • System Administrator Improvements. PressureWEB 4.0 has been modified to make it possible for a PressureMAP/PressureWEB system that has been moved to new hardware to be accessible to users without interruption. New functionality allows the System Administrator to enter the forwarding url or IP address of the new equipment so that users will be automatically directed to the new machine to access their office and device data.
