Field Tools for Android

By Itron Free

Developer's Description

ERT Configuration Accuracy for Reliable Data Collection

Field Tools for North American Gas and Water ERTs is an Itron app built on decades of programmable metering experience in the gas and water utility markets. Field Tools ensures Itron ERTs are configured correctly, allowing a utility to properly bill consumers and analyze meter data with your head-end system.

Field Tools is designed to improve the efficiency of todays field worker when installing, programming and checking Itron ERTs. Built on the Itron Mobile foundation, Field Tools enables the use of smartphones and tablets to perform various field tasks related to managing utility meter data collection hardware.

Field Tools is built on decades of experience programming Itron gas, water and electricity meters, endpoints, ERTs, telemetry devices and smart Network Interface Cards (NICs) including:

Configuring device telemetry parameters

Configuring communication modes

Changing from mobile to network mode

Validating network configuration

Reading Tampers

Checking meter configurations

Firmware download on select devices

Note: Not all features are available yet

Flexibility

Field Tools is designed to run on smartphones and tablets. This allows the company to choose the best and most affordable device for each employee and to meet the needs of additional field operation applications by providing the opportunity to reduce the number of mobile devices carried by a field worker.

Connected

The mobile field worker can synchronize new configurations throughout the day using any Internet connection (cellular, Wi-Fi, or Ethernet) from anywhere: at home, in the office, or in the field.

Programming

Field Tools connects to a designated head-end cloud server to retrieve customer-specific meter configurations needed to accurately program ERTs in the field. New or modified meter configurations can be synchronized to the Field Tools app anytime an Internet connection is available.

Validation

The core of any meter data collection is the accuracy of data for billing. Field Tools capability to check ERT programed values, meter information and modes, provides the field worker and utility with the comfort and satisfaction that billing will be accurate.

Network-Attach

Field Tools capability to program fixed network configurations with ERTs allows the field worker to set up these devices for network discovery for a smooth transition from mobile to network modes. Additionally, Field Tools can be used to validate network attach information once the ERT has associated with the network. Network features not available yet.

Itron Wireless Communications Modules

Field Tools uses the compact Itron Mobile Radio that uses Bluetooth to connect to the Field Tools app on a variety of mobile devices. Itron radios support wake-up and bubble-up ERTs.
