Abstract: Provided below are spreadsheets, data collection requirements, and a 90 day trending evaluation guide to assist in the evaluation of the TS7700 performance. Spreadsheets for a 90 day, one week, and a 24 hour evaluation are provided.

One 90 day evaluation spreadsheet can be used for 1 through 8 clusters grid. An accompanying data collection guide is included. The first worksheet in the spreadsheet has instructions for populating the data into the spreadsheet. Also included is a guide to help with the interpretation of the 90 day trends.

1 week spreadsheet can be used for 1 through 8 clusters grid. The spreadsheet uses the one hour interval data to produce charts for the one week period. There is also a data collection guide.

24 hour spreadsheet for 1 through 8 clusters grid. The spreadsheet uses the 15 minute interval data to produce charts for the 24 hour period. There is also a data collection guide.

These spreadsheets are intended for experienced TS7700 users. A detailed knowledge of the TS7700 is expected as well as familiarity with using spreadsheets.
