The M8 is a powerful remote control and data acquisition software used with the Maselli in line analyzers. It operates on PC based hardware and can be installed at-line, local to the operator, or in the laboratory. The characteristic touch-screen interface and series of simplified menus make it quick and easy to use: it takes just a few simple steps to begin production, perform calibration or display a real time graph of the collected data which may be extracted to xls for further analysis. The operator has the line trend, performance levels and any problems under control at all times, as data is clear and easy to read as are the process alarm conditions. High performance diagnostic software notifies the operator of any problems. The use of different password levels guarantees traceability of the various operations and minimizes the risk of any unauthorised personnel accessing sensitive data or settings. The software has the capability to connect to external network to share all the data recorded in the line.
