EmiDAS is fully configurable without the need for hard-coded programming changes, even for very complex user-defined calculations and data processing.
There is no limit to the complexity or number of user defined calculations that can be specified by the end user.
EmiDAS can process data from a wide variety of instruments across multiple industries. If an instrument has a digital or analogue output signal it can be integrated into the EmiDAS system.
EmiDAS allows for the setting of uncertainty values, computing normalized values, adjusted values, calibration periods, plant status, instrument status, system status and plant on/off delay periods for plant start-up and shut-down.
Emissions data can be input (and output) in any user-definable unit including ppm, mg/m3, mg/Nm3, Kg/hr, %, m/s and mass emissions in Kg/Hr.
An almost unlimited number of auxiliary inputs can also be logged and reported such as steam flow and fuel flow. These auxiliary inputs can be a valuable tool to aid in the maximisation of plant efficiencies and detecting problems such as boiler tube leaks.
EmiDAS provides analyser quality assurance including QAL 1, QAL2, AST and QAL3 Control Charts.
For on-going analyer quality assurance; management tools are supplied to enable implementation of:-
QAL 1 data can be entered into the system to provide the settings needed to determine maximum allowable drift limits of the instruments being monitored by the QAL 3 functions.
Real-time data and system information is displayed via a multi windowed user interface including:
Being multi windowed and having the ability to re-size each window, EmiDAS looks great equally on one or more large flat panel or standard sized monitors.
All displays have:
Configurable warning levels and Emission Limit Values (ELV) alarm levels can alert users of impending or actual ELV breaches via:-
Configurable Partial Averaging can be used to alert users of impending breaches giving operators time to make plant adjustments before ELVs are breached.
User-definable report generation allows for submission of data to local inspectors and the Environment Agency in the required formats for the site and in bespoke formats specified by the end-user.
Reports access data immediately on its creation to provide the most up-to-date measurement and system statuses. Any date range can be queried, and this range can even be selectable to an accuracy of 1 second.
This also includes historical data from the date of commissioning and report types are as follows:
All data can also be exported in a variety of formats for external examination and processing. This can assist with maximising plant efficiencies and diagnosing potential problems with the plant processes.
Data can be accessed via common communication protocols such as MODBUS, RS485, ProfiBUS, FieldBUS, ODBC, analogue signals, OPC, CSV export and others on request.
Monitoring data can be selected and exported in real-time for use in 3rd party systems at time periods of the user’s choice.
EmiDAS can be accessed directly at a remote terminal using the EmiDAS UI or it can be distributed via a site network to multiple users or accessed over a secure LAN via the Internet.
