8864 Ambient Data Controller
and securely acquires, stores and protects your
CEMS data and is ideal for ambient applications.
Power through the next decade of CEMS data collection with the 8864 Ambient Data Controller.
The 8864 Ambient Data Controller allows you to communicate independently and simultaneously with an instrumentation or network with industry-standard ambient monitoring software.
Each network port supports multiple sessions of data polling and remote user interaction while the 8864 continues to collect, compute and store new data.
Four built‐in USB ports allow connections to external keyboards, trackballs, mice, and/or supporting USB flash drives. All four serial ports are optically isolated RS-232 or RS-485 to protect the unit from failure.
Collect, monitor, QA, and report on emissions data from continuous monitoring systems with confidence.
A fully integrated capacitive touch screen, onscreen keyboard and intuitive UI make performing common functions without a keypad or external device easy. You can access the UI remotely anywhere you have a network connection and web browser. Remote browser connections require HTTPS and remote terminal sessions utilize a secure SSH protocol.
ESC Spectrum data controllers are designed to acquire and store data to ensure that no data is lost in the event of a communication failure with the ambient monitoring software. Data Controllers come with a 90-day guarantee and extended protection can be purchased through annual maintenance plans.
