Assuring Data integrity in an Environmental Monitoring System
The current trend in Environmental Monitoring Systems (EMS) is to focus on data integrity by using an industrial automated solution instead of the older PC based approaches. PC-based Environmental Monitoring Systems were common in the late 1990 and early 2000s and were the preferred solution because they cost less upfront and have reduced installation times compared to Automated Control Systems.
However, over the last ten years the reliability and complexity in requirements of an EMS has increased while the costs of industrial automated solutions has decreased. The requirements of the industry for a more robust and reliable EMS solution, that protects data integrity, is driving facilities to prefer an Industrial Automated Control Solution.
