Measuresoft's UK partner, Measurement Systems proposed and installed the monitoring solution based on Measuresoft's ScadaPro product running on the Microsoft Windows platform. The system was configured to acquire data from a distributed network of Datascan data acquisition modules and Measuresoft developed a driver to the 500EM particle counter and 330EX multiport sampler. The Datascan units acquire readings from relative humidity, temperature and pressure differentials sensors. The Climet unit is laser diode based and can measure particle counts from up to 30 locations.
The system was secured using Windows security so operators using the system are clearly identified and their access to the system configuration, system alarms and recorded data is controlled. Measuresoft provided a product feature for tracking changes to the system configuration so that the time and operator who changes the system configuration is recorded in a CFR 21 Part 11 compatible audit trail, along with an operator comment.
A ScadaPro Client was installed on PCs in the maintenance, office, laboratory and packaging areas with visible and audible alarm indicators. The ScadaPro software provides a CFR 21 Part 11 compatible audit trail of alarms which include operator and operator station for acknowledgement of alarms.
