viewLinc 4.1 Continuous Monitoring System
Vaisala has launched viewLinc 4.1, a new version of its monitoring, alarming and reporting software, which is the heart of its Continuous Monitoring System. Aimed at highly demanding controlled environments in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, the new version of the software offers an optimized mobile interface for remote monitoring and alarm management.
As part of the Vaisala Veriteq Continuous Monitoring System (CMS) viewLinc software provides alarming, real-time trending, and 21 CFR Part 11-compliant records for temperature, relative humidity, CO2, differential pressure, level, door switches, and more.

Ideal for large-scale, multi-facility systems and standalone applications, viewLinc integrates with your existing network, eliminating the cost of installing and maintaining a dedicated network for a continuous monitoring system. The software supports Ethernet, PoE, WiFi or a combination of all connectivity options.
The viewLinc software allows user to monitor environments measured with Vaisala Veriteq data loggers and supported Vaisala devices via any current Web browser: Microsoft?? Internet Explorer?? or Mozilla?? Firefox??. Interoperable Vaisala transmitters include the 300 series of Vaisala devices, including: HMT330, DMT340, MMT330, PTU300.
Along with the location-based and new time-zone specific reporting, viewLinc 4.1 is now localized for German, French, Swedish, and Chinese (Japanese version to launch in December 2012). Users can generate reports based on the time zone of the reporting location or the monitoring location making the system truly global in function.
Other key features of Vaisala viewLinc 4.1 include a greatly enhanced user interface that is easier to navigate, more customization capabilities in historical reports, and live multiple-channel trend display for enhanced reporting. The improved user interface facilitates easy access to product data in a more familiar Windows-type navigation.
In addition, it shows data by location, which allows users to easily find their loggers, swap out devices, and report data by location. With the mobile interface, users can acknowledge and pause alarms, view live trends on any monitored location under their control, and view trend data in real-time.
“Like its predecessors, Vaisala viewLinc 4.1 is easily deployed for monitoring temperature, relative humidity, CO2,, differential pressure, level, door switches, and more,” said Jon Aldous, Vaisala’s Life Science Product Manager. “But for 4.1 we localized the software, the IQ/OQ, and all the user documentation in German, French, Swedish, and Chinese. The Japanese version is due in December 2012.”
Vaisala will offer its customers warranty, software upgrades, technical support and user training services. The new software is available from October 2012 in Europe, North America and China.
