The NEEM Model #112 is an extremely easy to use, sensor-to-Internet interface unit that allows users to rapidly connect common types of sensors directly to the Internet without the need for an intermediate PC unit.

The NEEM Model #112 includes a complete, ready-to-use, highly integrated set of hardware and software tools to provide self-documenting, Internet-accessible sensor data acquisition, data logging, and data display to transform conventional sensors into smart sensors. The technology underlying the NEEM-112 is modeled after the IEEE 1451.2 Smart Transducer Interface standard.

Primary Sensor Data Storage Periods

Sensor data acquired by the “Primary Sensor” interface channel is stored by the NEEM unit in non-volatile memory. The “Primary Sensor” is designated during the NEEM setup process using the Configuration Console. Information from the Primary Sensor is continuously sampled and recorded at approximately 20 second intervals as long as power is connected to the NEEM unit.

Detailed Measured Data

  • 20 second intervals, continuously stored for 1 year for the Primary Sensor only.

Average Measured Data

  • 15 minute average values calculated from the Detailed Measured Data are continuously stored for 1500 days (approximately 4 years).

Detailed Use Data

  • 15 minute average threshold comparison data is calculated as a percent of time that the measured sensor signal satisfied the threshold condition during a 15 minute period. This value is calculated from the Detailed Measured Data values and the Threshold information and the threshold inequality condition entered by the user during the setup process using the Configuration Console program. This information is stored for approximately 4 years before the oldest data is over-written with new data.

Summary Use Data

  • Daily average values indicating the percent of the day that the primary sensor values satisfied the threshold condition. This value is provided as a percentage value indicating the percentage of the normal workday that the Primary Sensor data satisfied the threshold condition. The hours in the day during defining the normal workday for an application is setup in the Configuration Console under the “Work Week” tab. This is necessary so that the average values calculated can exclude shutdown periods. The user can include all 24 hours a day, 7-days a week or exclude various periods based on the specific needs. This information can be particularly useful when determining the fraction of the workday that a resource is in use. This feature can also be used to determine the fraction of the workday that a piece of equipment is in an alarm mode.This information is stored for approximately 10 years.
