Ecotech offers the WinAQMS data acquisition system, the culmination of 30 years of successful field experience in data acquisition.
One of the smallest Windows-based data acquisition systems, WinAQMS data acquisition system is a fifth generation data gathering and control system that has been specifically designed for use in ambient air, meteorological and emission monitoring applications.
The new WinAQMSmini DAS uses exactly the same software but is installed on a miniature industrial computer with dimensions marginally larger than that of an iPhone.
WinAQMS data acquisition system offers several advantages over available data acquisition systems and data loggers:
- Low power requirement (less than 7 watts of power)
- Compact Windows-based data acquisition system
- 64GB solid state hard disk capable of storing up to 10 years’ worth of data
- Ability to connect digitally to a wide variety of ‘smart analysers’
- Ideal for use in weather stations or air quality monitoring systems where space is limited
- Designed and tested to cope with wide temperature ranges, the system is suitable for applications in non air-conditioned environments
WinAQMS interfaces to a range of analysers including those manufactured by Ecotech, Met One, Synspec, Dani, Baseline, Thermo, API and Environment SA.
Use of RS232 and USB links allows WinAQMS to collect data directly from these instruments in digital format, eliminating digital to analogue conversion errors.
An optional 16-bit termination panel (TPIM) provides a high level of accuracy when interfacing with non-digital sensors.
A variety of communication methods can be used including modem, Ethernet and satellite networks.
Data can be retrieved remotely or copied to the logger's mini SD card.
WinAQMS provides supervisory and interactive control from anywhere in the world enabling calibrations to be performed, system set-up and diagnostic parameters to be viewed or changed as well as data to be retrieved at user selectable intervals.
A module in the system called Data Pusher is capable of automatically uploading data to an FTP server or other applications without data needing to be downloaded first.
Ecotech’s WinAQMS data acquisition systems have been installed in monitoring networks throughout the world involving multiple applications.
WinAQMSmini enables customers to install WinAQMS in both compact and non air-conditioned environments.
