Products

  • SmartMaster platform is the basis for most of our software products.
  • It provides basic services like communications, event logging, data viewing and analysis.
  • SmartMaster is based on Microsoft's SQL 2016 Server which provides industrial strength database services.
  • SmartMaster also uses SQL server modern security services, electronic notification dispatching, and reports.
  • SCADA component provides one-line diagrams, and T-SQL compiler so operators can write their own programs.
  • Load Management component provides demand response, load state reinserting, and load rotation algorithms.
  • Capacitor Control component adds capacitor bank management based on any external parameter.
  • Capacitor Control component also provides safety control timers for capacitor bank protection.
  • NTMC is our legacy master controller which was developed and supported from 1995 to 2009.
  • While NTMC technical support is still in effect, the product is no longer being developed and expanded.
  • Most NTMC customers have upgraded to SmartMaster.
  • NeXGen is our partner company Telescada's product line of RTUs and switches used by utilities.
  • BTE has co-developed NeXGen and NGC, the NeXGen Configuration programming utility.
  • Together with Telescada we offer a wide range of solutions for the electric, gas, and water utilities.
