ACR Systems introduces TrendReader Standard 2
ACR Systems introduces TrendReader Standard 2, the next generation of TrendReader software. The new software emphasizes logger connectivity and data management and is extremely easy to use as the main interface is through familiar Windows® Explorer views. TrendReader 2 allows users to edit information from all ACR loggers that have communicated with the PC. With built-in menus for sample rate and mode, start delay, equations and more, logger setup is fast and easy. In addition, equations are already included for all ACR sensors and users need only select the appropriate equation from the menu, or customize their own equation. Real-time readings are displayed in status, setup, and maximized real-time views allowing users to verify that the logger is working correctly before placing it in the field. For presentation purposes, data can be viewed in graphical format or for a more detailed analysis, in tabular and statistical format. Either way, multiple channels of data can be displayed at once. Multiple graphs can be displayed at the same time and compounded to create new graphs. For added presentation power, users can add comments, change graph colors, zoom in on specific portions of data, display data using custom engineering units, print or copy / paste graphs into reports and / or presentations.

HVAC Data Wireless Data Tracking
On Demand data 24/7 Wireless Data Tracking
Wireless is a powerful new tool for those that are responsible for the supervision of computer linked mechanical systems, such as air conditioners, air handlers, VAV terminals, pumps, and generators. Combined with Data tracker software, supervisors and mechanics can obtain real-time data about the status of vital mechanical operations. This is particularly valuable in the case of emergencies when proper and timely evaluation can be crucial to operations. Portable system interface can allow mechanics to quickly evaluate priority systems. In daily operations colored data points in need of attention present themselves clearly. It is so much more productive to apply manpower to real trouble points, instead of groping with less effective PM programs. We will establish wireless networking in your facility to implement this service.
