Environmental monitoring (EMS)

Environmental monitoring systems are increasingly used to monitor environmental conditions in a large number of sectors, including the pharmaceutical industry, public health, food safety, ambient air analysis, etc. Monitoring environmental parameters such as temperature, humidity, pressure, air quality etc. can be critical when it comes to maintaining the optimum conditions for storing and protecting products and patients.
Safyr offers comprehensive solutions that are customised to suit the client’s needs, with a view to providing effective, successful, high-quality support.

Step 1 :

Needs assessment

The first step in designing an environmental monitoring system involves assessing your needs.
Which environmental parameters needs to be monitored? They may include air quality, pressure, temperature, humidity etc. The next stage involves deciding:
– the measuring frequency.
– which sensors you need,
– the measuring ranges, and
– the precision required for each parameter.

Step 2 :

Defining locations

Once the parameters have been identified, HeX Consult will help you choose the right location for each sensor.
This location is chosen according to:
– a risk analysis.
accessibility when it comes to installing, maintaining and calibrating the sensors

Step 3 :

Choosing the sensors: adjustments and customisation

The choice of sensors therefore depends on which parameters need to be monitored. Different kinds of sensors can be used, such as gas, temperature, humidity, particle sensors etc.
Particular attention is paid to the reliability of the sensors, as well as their accuracy and durability. The sensors must comply with the specifications for the environmental parameters that need to be monitored, the client’s specific needs, as well as expectations and any regulatory requirements that there might be.

Step 4 :

Choosing how the sensors communicate

Supplement with the different communication types
Sensor network design involves determining how the sensors will interact with each other and with the monitoring system.
In a typical master-slave or master-master design, a single master node collects data from all the sensors and transmits it to a central processing unit.
In a chain-type design, each sensor is connected in series with the others, and data is transmitted from one sensor to the next, all the way to the central processing unit.

Step 5 :

System installation and configuration

The team then proceeds to the :
– configuring the sensor network according to the site plan set out in the previous steps.
– testing of sensor network connections
– installation and configuration of the monitoring system management software for receiving, storing and analyzing sensor data

The design and installation of an environmental monitoring system is therefore a meticulous and complex process. It requires meticulous planning, technical expertise and the right choice of sensors to effectively monitor environmental parameters. With proper installation and configuration, environmental monitoring systems help reduce environmental impact and protect human health.
