Weather, especially severe weather, can substantially impact your utility’s operations. Lightning can strike substations, high winds can bring down branches, ice can snap lines, and hurricanes in particular can be catastrophic. What’s more, each has the potential to leave thousands without power.

At Schneider Electric, we offer MxVision WeatherSentry Web Services to provide your utility with highly accurate weather observations and forecasts that support strategic operational decisions. This proven information is relied on by organizations worldwide to protect people, resources, and profitability. In addition, our forecasts have been ranked the most accurate in the industry for the last seven consecutive years, in an independent study.

  2. 2. MxVision WeatherSentry Web Services for Utilities Weather, especially severe weather, can substantially impact your utility’s operations. Lightning can strike substations, high winds can bring down branches, ice can snap lines, and hurricanes in particular can be catastrophic. What’s more, each has the potential to leave thousands without power. At Schneider Electric, we offer MxVision WeatherSentry Web Services to provide your utility with highly accurate weather observations and forecasts that support strategic operational decisions. This proven information is relied on by organizations worldwide to protect people, resources, and profitability. In addition, our forecasts have been ranked the most accurate in the industry for the last seven consecutive years, in an independent study. Web services API MxVision WeatherSentry offers a global weather data Application Programming Interface (API) in the form of Web services, for both current observed weather and historical weather for the past 72 hours. These services provide a standard way for your programmers to integrate valuable weather data directly into your critical software applications or websites. It is both a point-based and GIS- based Web service, designed to Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards. It is also compatible with common Esri® tools and development environments, including: • Apache Flex® • JavaScript® • Silverlight® MxVision WeatherSentry Web Services are delivered via a high-performance computing platform to ensure fast, reliable response to requests. This allows the weather data to be integrated into applications for spatial and temporal visualization with great flexibility MxVision WeatherSentry Web Services provides REST services, which your developers and software architects can include in data applications throughout your organization. This API provides 24/7, secure information exchange that is mandatory in the electrical utility industry. The REST XML-based service uses proprietary methods with authentication and SSL. 02 | MxVision WeatherSentry Web Services Rated number one in precipitation forecasts for the seventh consecutive year.
  3. 3. With its accurate temperature forecasts, you can: • Improve load forecasts and save costs by creating more effective applications • Streamline development and maintenance of websites and applications, as well as reduce development costs with a single, comprehensive source of weather data • Improve decision-making, planning, and communications with consistent, complete data availability for all application users Multiple formats for secure delivery MxVision WeatherSentry Web Services provides SOAP and REST services, which your developers and software architects can include in data applications throughout your organization. Both services provide the 24/7, secure information exchange that is mandatory in the electrical utility industry. SOAP XML-based services use WS- Security, authentication, and SSL. The REST XML-based service uses proprietary methods with authentication and SSL. Choose the information you need As a subscriber to our weather Web services API, you’ll benefit from flexible access to dynamic weather information, the way you need it, when you need it: • Select the forecast and observation locations critical to your operations, worldwide • Eliminate the need for employees to filter through non-essential weather information You can subscribe to hourly and daily forecasts for the 15-day outlook, with associated actual observations. These forecasts are updated every hour to ensure the most current and accurate outlook possible. Quality-controlled hourly and daily weather observations Available hourly and daily parameters include those common for energy operations and planning, such as temperature values, heat index, humidity, wind characteristics, precipitation type and amount, barometric pressure, and many more. And MxVision WeatherSentry Web Services also provides parameters not available from free sources — such as heating degree days and cooling degree days, irradiance, evapotranspiration, and others — so you always have the robust information needed for optimized decision making and operations. In addition, climatological data is available for locations in North American. Restore power faster with lightning information Lightning is one of a utility’s greatest concerns. It puts crews at risk and threatens transmission and distribution. We deliver real-time strike information worldwide to support visualization and decision- support for operational applications. Real-time lightning information through our GIS Web services uses color coding to show if lightning is intensifying or subsiding, and displays where strikes are the most concentrated. Correlating animated lightning strikes with real-time local radar can help anticipate where storms are headed. Support your decisions with weather insight When severe weather strikes within your zone of influence, audio and visual alerts can be triggered based on our real-time data. An all-clear notification can also be set up to let you know when the danger has passed. Plus, real-time Web services can be integrated into smartphones and other mobile devices to provide your field workforce with a convenient view of weather information on hand-held devices.

  5. 5. With actionable real-time weather data from MxVision WeatherSentry Web Services, information can be visualized on detailed, high-resolution maps or archived for part or all of your service territory, including time, latitude, and longitude, into an Excel or .csv file. This allows you to document, analyze, and report on the weather’s impact on your operations for better service restoration, outage prevention, planning, insurance claims, and post- storm analysis and reporting.
