Data Management AQM
The EnviMan package is a modular built software that can be used for both industrial and urban applications. The Opsis systems generate high levels of data and a range of software packages are available to allow maximum value to be extracted from this information. The full Opsis software range – EnviMan – provides a wide choice of data collection, reporting, display and other statistical functions, as well as local or remote communications with external computer systems.
Hardware for Data Acquisition
Opsis offers a complete line of products for integrating data from various external sensors in the Opsis measurement systems. Several approaches to system integration are available:
- External sensors connected to Opsis gas analysers.
- Stand-alone Opsis data loggers, independent of gas analysers.
- Interfaces between Opsis monitors or stand-alone dataloggers and various Data management
systems, including Opsis own product line.
The Opsis DL256 datalogger system is designed for modern data acquisition applications. The datalogger can handle analogue and digital input and output signals as well as serial communication with monitors and sensors. The system supports a wide range of serial protocols.
Handling of Input & Output Signals
The IOMan System is designed for handling analog input and output signals, digital input and output signals, sensors with serial communication and industrial protocols.
Data Acquisition, Validation & Presentation
EnviMan ComVisioner provides real-time data management, i.e. accessing monitoring stations according to user defined schedules, extracting data and storing the data in databases. Furthermore, data can be displayed in graphs or tables. Automatic data validation can be set up using scripts and alarms can be generated for certain criteria. Advanced mathematical and logical functions can be used to generate secondary variables (suitable for PEMS (Predictive Emission Monitoring Systems)).
ComVisioner is supplied as a client server concept in which the ComServer is dedicated for the data acquisition and the ComVisioner clients are used for data presentation.
Advanced Data Presentation & Reporting
EnviMan Reporter is a power software for presentation, report generation and advanced statistical analysis of air quality/CEM data. It is designed to be used with Opsis monitoring systems and data loggers but can be used for any other type of monitoring data. Reporter can combine data from several monitoring sites, present the data in graphs using various selective conditions and perform multivariate statistical analysis. Data can be displayed in graphs as time series, distribution graphs, scatter plots, period profiles, wind roses and Breuer plots (polar scatter/average diagrams). In addition to the graphs, numerical tables can be viewed.
The EnviMan Reporter includes a macro-facility, allowing the user to set up his favourite presentations in a macro – to be used for creating automatic reports. The reports can be set up in various formats such as Excel spreadsheets, HTML tables, ASCII files, JPEG, GIF and Bitmaps.
Sending and Receiving Time Series of Data
EnviMan ExporterImporter provides services for sending and reading time series data using standardised FTP (File Transfer Protocol). Special functions for exporting data to standard databases can be implemented.
Data presentation on the Internet/Intranet can be carried out in various ways.
The EnviScheduler can be utilized to initiate Reporter at user-defined occasions to create JPEG graphs and HTML tables that will be transferred via FTP to Web servers for presentation.
EnviMan Sitebuilder can be used in a similar way as EnviScheduler, but in addition Sitebuilder can be used for designing the layout of the HTML page to be presented on the Internet.
EnviWeb is designed for displaying weather forecasts on the Internet. The application enables the user to create a map layout including weather symbols such as clouds, rain, fog, wind arrows and various sun symbols. When a weather forecast telegram is received from a weather forecast supplier, the application will automatically compile the data into weather maps showing several forecast projections.
Air Quality Forecasts
The EnviMan Forecaster is designed for daily air quality predictions. Projections up to 48 hours can be generated for all types of pollutants. Output could be generated for individual pollutants or as weighed combinations such as PSI or air quality indicators.
The forecast is based on adaptive statistical models utilizing historical AQ monitoring data, meteorological data and a weather forecast.
