Advanced Power Thought

What is APTView?

  • The concept of remote access switchgear control makes safety the top priority.
  • It isolates switchgear operation personnel from the live components of a switchgear. It also allows for operator control from a remote location or an isolated master control station.
  • Operators can have the peace of mind that they are utilizing the safest means of operating circuit breakers possible. This is done by eliminating the need for an operator to be anywhere near live or potentially live equipment.
  • APTView is APT’s own Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system.
  • It utilizes Human Machine Interface (HMI) systems to monitor and control both APT and 3rd party equipment via personal computers or your favorite web or network-connected mobile device.
    • Requires fast internet connection and Static IP.
  • Customer specified security features to limit access only to the people who need access for maximum security.
  • See pages 7-9 of the MCP-Series Switchgear Master Control Panel brochure for our control system modules associated with APTView.
