As technology develops, Pine Environmental Services, LLC. responds. Pine has developed and introduced to the market a new and exciting product that allows the end user immediate access to field monitoring data in real time from anywhere that has a cell phone signal and the end user has access to the Internet. Using a reliable Internet based software platform and WiFi modem in conjunction with a wide variety of instruments, Pine can now build a network of equipment utilized to collect and transfer field data to a web based hosting platform that can be accessed simultaneously by any number of participants.
The WiFi modems and monitoring equipment are all powered by rechargeable batteries using solar or wind based green technology. The system can be custom tailored to meet your specific monitoring needs.
Because of the modems diversity, we are able to connect a wide variety of instruments to the system. This includes specific equipment that uses RS232, RS485, SDI12, and other communication platforms. The data set includes performance information of the instrument such as; temperature, battery voltage, and other operational information. This is in addition to the pertinent environmental conditions that are being monitored. All of which can be displayed in graphical, tabulated, or single reading form.
To date Pine Environmental Services, LLC. has instruments on rent at numerous locations in the United States working with various consultants. The instrumentation compatibility list grows as we design platform modifications to allow for the communication and display of data from more and more instruments.
Below you will find a screen-shot of the hosting platform information for equipment currently connected to a modem at our corporate headquarters in Windsor, NJ. The data from a Thermo DR-4000 aerosol monitor is being continually updated in 15 minute intervals back to the host server in Windsor.
The platform allows the user to view graphical representations and tabulated data for up to three parameters graphically and all parameters measured in a tabulated format. The tables can be exported to excel in a .csv format for individuals to format and graph outside of the platform if necessary. Alarming conditions can be set for any of the measured parameters and email notification set up to one or all privileged parties.
Additionally, the platform can be configured to allow for user-name and password access to individual projects. Therefore a consulting firm can grant access to multiple end users including; clients, regulators, field technicians, and technical experts around the world. We host the service and back up the data to a secure server and the technical experts can see field conditions as required at anytime.
We see a wide variety of applications where this technology can save consultant time and client money. Whether you want to observe real time groundwater quality changes down gradient of an injection well or changes in the ambient air in a sensitive working environment, Pine has the instruments and knowledge to outfit you with the tools to save time, money, and allows your personnel the freedom to work on other tasks. You can increase efficiency and reduce labor costs while gathering real time data that may show critical information to gauge performance and safety or allow for earlier decision making to get the job done more efficiently.
