The Control Program can sort the complete audit trail back to system switch-on by timeframe, event type, equipment, sensor and department . . .

The Alerter is a pop-up application. It can be installed on any PC with access to the network. Users can congure the program to respond only to alarms from relevant departments. Alerter provides real time audible and visual indication of alarm conditions. The pop-up display mirrors the alarm information displayed on an InfoPoint. A remote user can accept alarms using the Control Program. The audit trail is maintained whether the alarm is accepted using the InfoPoint or the Control Program.

The 17, wall-mounted, colour LCD touch-screen display and intuitive user interface mean that InfoPoint is simple to use, easy to understand and minimises training. InfoPoint displays alarm conditions, current sensor values and settings, audit trail information and trend graphs. Alarms can be accepted, channels can be inhibited and temporary disables initiated (eg for defrost). All the frequently used system operation and maintenance functions are included. InfoPoint uses an index card metaphor to simplify navigation. Touching the tab at the top of the screen changes the display mode. When an alarm occurs, InfoPoint generates an audible and visual alarm, jumps to the alarm tab and displays the alarm information and advisory text . . . An image can be inserted on the status page to provide more information . . . Sensor data is displayed graphically . . . DataNode has 4 relay outputs. These can be congured to change state for any combination of alarms and used, for example, for local alarm indication. Each channel (or piece of equipment) can be congured to include up to 4 analogue or serial inputs and 4 contact inputs. A UPS is installed to enable DataNode to continue logging if the mains supply fails.

Prolog Lite is the latest addition to our world-class range of environmental monitoring systems. The system is 21CFR11 Part 11 and GAMP compliant and will satisfy MHRA requirements. It is a multi-user system with the capacity to monitor up to 100 points distributed over multiple sites. It monitors a complete facility whilst maintaining departmental separation and responsibility. Prolog Lite combines the server and InfoPoint in a single, wall-mounted unit. The server uses an industry standard MySQL database. It stores the system conguration information and accumulates measurements from DataNodes. It also maintains a secure audit trail of alarms, alarm acceptances, settings changes and all system events and actions taken. Prolog Lite makes scheduled automatic database backups to a nominated server on the network. The system is highly resilient. Logged data is duplicated in the database and in DataNode. If the network connection to DataNode is interrupted, missing database information will be automatically retrieved when the network connection is restored. The system generates four alarms per sensor; upper and lower warning levels and upper and lower alarm levels. Prolog Lite will send email containing detailed alarm information to predened addresses: including smartphones. Separate addresses can be dened for each department. Departmental responsibility is achieved by conguring InfoPoint displays to respond only to alarms for specic departments. As shown in the diagram above, Prolog Lite is connected by a standard Ethernet network to distributed DataNodes which collect and store data from local sensors. Local InfoPoints display alarms and information only from equipment for which the department is responsible. ProLog Lite software is being continuously developed to reect the changing needs of users and to ensure that the system complies with current legislation and practice. Software updates are offered free of charge during warranty and subsequent maintenance agreements.

Control Program
The Control Program is used to congure and control a ProLog system. The Control Program is a web application; this means that any PC on the network can access this program using a familiar web browser. The system manager species the users who have access to the system and attaches users to departments. Usernames, passwords and the required level of access permissions are allocated to users so that they can congure and maintain the system, accept alarms and alter settings within their designated departments. Details of alarm acceptances, settings changes and any other interventions are recorded in a secure audit trail along with users name and comments. A channel is congured for each piece of equipment attached to the system. Sensors are assigned to a channel and upper and lower warning and alarm levels are set. The channel names, sensor names, alarm messages and optional channel and sensor advisory text are entered. The equipment supplier, part number and serial number are also recorded . . .

InfoPoints can be distributed throughout a facility as required and alarm notications can be transferred to a different InfoPoint when a department is not staffed. InfoPoints UPS ensures operation is maintained during changeover to emergency supply. Username and password are necessary to accept alarms and a user comment is required for the audit trail. These are entered using the on-screen keyboard . . .

DataNode accepts up to 16 analogue inputs, 16 contact inputs and 4 serial inputs. In addition, 8/4/2 analogue input versions are available to minimise system cost for smaller applications. The minimum logging interval is 1 minute. At this setting, DataNode stores 1 week of local data. DataNode makes continuous analogue sensor measurements at 1-second intervals and stores the worst excursion during the logging interval in the database. It accepts a range of inputs as shown in the specication on the back page. The serial inputs interface with particle counters and other intelligent sensors.
