MeasureNet Software Revamp Announced at ACS-New Orleans Conference
April 8, 2008
MeasureNet Technology Ltd. has announced a major software upgrade for the instructor PC attached to each data acquisition network. The new software will integrate support for multiple network controllers by a single PC, eliminating the current need to assign one PC for each 12-station network. Instructors will continue to have live access to any local student data acquisition in this multiple network arrangement.
The software will also present a number of functional changes. Instructors will have increased flexibility for viewing and assessing student data such as adjusting data parameters and identifying points on a curve in the data view mode. Collaborative activities between institutions will be supported by the ability, with the appropriate permissions, to remotely monitor live data acquisitions from other institutions. Also, the new software will enable remote diagnostics to enhance timely hardware and software troubleshooting.
The upgrade has been structured so that the new “look” of the user interface, as well as many of the data views, can be easily changed via custom plug-ins written by end users. MeasureNet plans improvements to its network software in the 2008-2009 period.
MeasureNet is the only data acquisition system for the science teaching laboratory with out-of-the-box LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) features that include remote data retrieval, in-lab instructor monitoring of student acquisitions, and distance monitoring of data acquisitions by collaborating institutions.
