8864 Data Controller
accurately and securely
acquires, stores and protects your CEMS data from
communications failures with your DAS system.
Collect, monitor, QA, and report on emissions data from continuous monitoring systems with confidence.
The industry-standard 8864 Data Controller provides a reliable and powerful hardware bridge between StackVision™, Prism®, or other Data Acquisition System (DAS) software and an emissions monitoring rack. Its proven accuracy and durability over decades of use across the U.S. are second-to-none.
The device offers superior network security. Remote browser connections require HTTPS and remote terminal sessions utilize a secure SSH protocol.
The 8864 features support for 1000Mbps with consistency and reliability in high-traffic networks with complex network topologies. It can perform firmware upgrades in less than one minute.
