It would probably be simpler to run the sp_helprevlogin in the master database and save off the result.  This could be run in PowerShell as well.

Take a look here and put these in your master database:

Then you can run the following script and get your information out.

$server = New-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server servername
$db = $server.Databases["master"]
$ds = $db.ExecuteWithResults("EXEC sp_helprevlogin")

$ds.Tables[0] | Export-CSV "c:\temp\logins.csv"

or something like that.
