"The previous version of the viewLinc system has long been used by pharmaceuticals, but it is also ideal for monitoring other high-value assets that are affected by environmental conditions, such as air temperature or humidity. It is used in museums, galleries, and in IT server rooms," says Vaisala Product Manager Jon Aldous.
viewLinc provides trends and customizable reporting that ensures accurate environmental information via a wide selection of Vaisala devices that monitor temperature, humidity, CO2, and other variables. For GxP compliance, validation documents are available.
The new viewLinc system leverages cutting-edge wireless communications capabilities in order to utilize logging devices that communicate reliably in obstructed environments.
"We licensed a new long-range wireless specification to create VaiNet, a proprietary wireless technology for viewLinc," tells Aldous. The signal strength between network access points and data loggers can travel over 100 meters indoors. It’s not affected by walls, equipment, Wi-Fi networks, or other usual signal impediments.
"We worked with several long-time customers, collecting a wish-list of system functions that could be either simplified or automated. We eliminated or improved aspects of system deployment that were time-consuming or complex, and updated the software interface with embedded help to guide users through common tasks," says Aldous.
The result is a monitoring system that can be installed in minutes, maintains compliance for years, and eliminates almost every issue related to wireless data logging.
