Data Acquisition & Processing

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.

Quality Assurance

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 2 Calibration Functions
  • Uncertainty
  • QAL3 Control Charts (CUSUM Precision & Drift, Shewhart and EWMA)

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.

User Interface

Real-time data and system information is displayed via a multi windowed user interface including:

  • Alarm & warning indicators
  • Block, Rolling and Partial averages
  • Trend charts
  • Bar charts
  • Data grid displays user defined averaged data in textual and graphical format
  • Error and Event logs storing all alarms, systems warnings and maintenance
  • Unlimited window layouts can be saved by the operator / user
  • System Auditing provides details of all logins / logouts and changes or attempted changes to the system
  • QAL3 Control Charts
  • Comprehensive online HELP manual

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:

  • Selectable units of measurement
  • Selectable Raw, Validated and Adjusted (QAL2 Calibration function & Uncertainty) readings, user-defined measurements and averages that have been configured within the system
  • Historical data from commissioning onwards is accessible via the trend and reporting facilities.

Alerting

Configurable warning levels and Emission Limit Values (ELV) alarm levels can alert users of impending or actual ELV breaches via:-

  • On screen warnings
  • Email
  • SMS / Text message 
  • Plant wide audible sirens 
  • Physical warning lights

Configurable Partial Averaging can be used to alert users of impending breaches giving operators time to make plant adjustments before ELVs are breached.

Configurable reporting

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:

  • User Configurable Averaged Data Report
  • System Configuration Report
  • LPCD Reports including Form Air 2, 3, 6, 11
  • WID Reports
  • QAL3 Reports 
    • CUSUM Drift
    • CUSUM Precision
    • Shewhart
    • Exponentially Weighted Moving Average (EWMA)

The MCERTS reports come in PDF format with our official MCERTS Watermark ensuring that all data reported has been processed as per the standard.

Data access

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.

Live Data Feeds

Monitoring data can be selected and exported in real-time for use in 3rd party systems at time periods of the user’s choice.

Distributed Access

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.
