It is possible to connect 4 OSMOS optical sensors, 6 traditional analog sensors and 2 temperature sensors to each data collection unit. It is possible to connect 5 data collection units to each signal processing unit, i.e. 20 OSMOS optical sensors, 30 traditional analog sensors and 10 temperature sensors. All traditional sensors can be connected to the monitoring station.
Yes, by means of a telephone modem used in conjunction with a wire connection or with GSM mobile telephony, it is possible to programme and control the monitoring station by remote control.
For when there is a power cut, we offer standard batteries which function autonomously for a period of 2 hours, or more, as required. For example it is possible to make the system totally autonomous for longer than a month, by connecting it to an independent electric power generator which supplies the system with electricity. Thus, it is autonomous from one visit to the site and another.
It is also possible to supply the monitoring station with electricity by means of solar panels.
If pre-programmed thresholds are exceeded, alarms are sent by e-mail, fax, and text messages or by means of SNMP (simple network management protocol) Trap messages. The alarm systems which are on site (e.g. sirens, safety barriers, red lights) can also be connected to the monitoring station.
Yes, the software programme offers two screens (the “dashboard” and the oscilloscope) which show data instantaneously.
All the information is stored in a data base in ASCII mode, or recorded directly onto an Excel sheet, if requested.
At OSMOS, we have developed our own data processing software, which is very user-friendly and functions according to requisite ergonomic criteria. Data can be recorded in the form of curves, graphs, bar charts or tables.
This software has the following specific features:
- Fourier transform, in order to determine the specific frequency components;
- Formulae are established to find connections between the curves registered by all the sensors, and, if necessary, correct them.
Data can be easily exported to Excel files, Mathlab programmes, as well as to other software programmes.
