The G2 Central Host Computer is the hardware platform for the G2 Central software and interface to the back-haul network. The Host Computer is a Windows- XP-based PC with standard I/O devices, storage and ports. Required support software, such as Microsoft Office, MapPoint and Visual Earth will come pre-installed and verified. Network access and high-speed internet access will always be required. Thus, utility IT assistance will be required for the setup of the Host Computer. The Host Computer should always be dedicated solely to the G2 Net functions.

The G2 Central software provides a map or imagery based user interface

The G2 Central software provides the following functions:

Visual Interface to Accounts: Accounts are represented as icons on the screen. The icons change (color, shape, etc) to reflect read status, datalog status and consumption patterns. Depending upon the type of M2 endpoint radio (water, gas, electric), the icon will reflect certain conditions according to the data flags (i.e. leak for water, peak demand for electric or high usage for gas).

Instantaneous Reads: The user can access account information for any account by simply clicking on the icon.

Instantaneous History: The user can access a history file (datalog) for any account by simply clicking on the icon and selecting “Get Log” from the popup menu. This function accesses stored data within the appropriate SubNet Controller in the field, via the back-haul network. In this Log View, data is presented in a bar chart or line graph.

Review Consumption Issues: The user can filter the screen to only display accounts/icons with a specific status. For instance, the meter filter can be configured to only show water accounts with leaks. The meter filter can be configured simply through the configuration menu to accommodate almost any combination of views. The user can also utilise the Data View to see sorted lists of accounts with specific data flags.
