AUSTIN, TX, February 16, 2023; ESC Spectrum, an industry leader in air emissions monitoring and compliance, is excited to announce the release of RATAView 1.3, software that helps stack testers perform Relative Accuracy Test Audits (RATA) tests accurately and efficiently to meet complex regulations, including requirements around testing frequency, calculations, data gathering, and data retention. It is packaged with an 8864 Data Controller, the most widely used device in the industry for data collection, computation, and storage.
RATAView is the only RATA testing software backed by a 24/7 Customer Support Team and is actively being developed. The software is updated bi-annually with new features to evolve with changing industry needs.
The software guides users through a test “queue” configuration to create templates and automate the testing process. Users can reuse the templates at any time, in either manual or automatic mode, with the ability to reset the test to clear out current results and start over, accept the test, or stop/pause when needed. To learn about how facilities are using RATAView to increase stack testing efficiency, read the Evergy electric company case study.
The latest release of RATAView offers new features and enhancements to improve users’ experience. These include:
- Reporting Notes
- A new field labeled “Reporting Notes” has been added. Use this optional field for reporting purposes to help distinguish one test from another. The field is available when adding a new test or when viewing previous tests in the main RATAView window.
- Molecular Weight Correction
- RATAView now supports molecular weight corrections for dilution instruments. Two new optional fields labeled “Initial Moisture (%H2O)” and “Initial Molecular Weight (g/mol)” are available when adding a new test for a dilution instrument.
- Source Configuration
- RATAView now includes several configuration screens for configuring different source types (data collector devices), such as the 8864 Data Controller. Clicking the new Sources tab provides access to a list of all sources where users can now select a particular source to begin the configuration process.
RATAView is a critical component of ESC Spectrum’s end-to-end solutions for helping customers operate their facilities efficiently and meet air compliance obligations.
