Spectra eMap™

DMS Representation & Visualization

Spectra eMap is a full-featured graphical viewer designed to support both geographical and schematic views of the distribution system, distribution substations and transmission networks. Spectra eMap comprehensively solves issues related to maintaining a fully accurate and up-to-date model of the system and offers the tools to improve customer service, reduce operating costs and response times.


Geographical Information Systems Interface

OpenGIS provides an interface between the utility's GIS system and the OSI Distribution Management System. OpenGIS uses available GIS APIs to retrieve system maps (electrical, geographical, other information) from the GIS, which are then converted to OSI standard display format. OpenGIS APIs are designed to allow interfacing to popular GIS products and can be tailored to your specific needs.

Spectra DMS™

Distribution Management System

Spectra DMS encompasses a comprehensive and integrated set of powerful, electric and distribution system management solutions accessible through a common user-interface. Spectra DMS monitors the performance of the distribution system, allowing users to anticipate and respond to potential overloading and under voltage situations with the best solutions, before they become critical.

Spectra OMS™

Outage Management System

Spectra OMS is a next-generation, state-of-the-art outage management solution that empowers utilities to better manage their outage response times, keep customers, management and regulators well informed about the scope, status and forecast of restoration efforts as well as to improve overall system reliability. Spectra OMS also allows the assignment of work to field technicians.
