OmniView Process Analysis Software

Guided Wave’s NIR-OTM process analyzer utilizes OmniViewTM software for process monitoring and control. Flexible and robust, OmniView is ideal for continuous process monitoring applications. Running a single Guided Wave analyzer, the software can be accessed remotely without interrupting the continuous operation of the analyzer. Configuration options make it easy to allow multiple remote users to view data simultaneously.

Specific Purpose

OmniView provides an environment for continuous and batch process analysis. The software may be implemented in all installations of NIR-O analyzers.

A Comprehensive Package

OmniView can be customized with “add on scripts” to meet the needs of any process installation. At a minimum, the software is provided as a stand-alone package to control all aspects of your Guided Wave NIR-O analyzer. The software allows for full control of the analyzer, diagnostic systems, data manipulation, maintenance/event log, trend graphs, models, security, input/output, etc. Communications via MODBUS® TCP are included as standard. 4-20 mA analog signals are also supported with optional hardware. Support for model formats from Unscrambler® X (CAMO) and Pirouette® (Infometrix) is available. Pre-and post-processing of spectral data is done by way of the PythonTM scripting language. OmniView supports the multiple probes available on the NIR-O analyzer, each with multiple analyses. Models, probes, or the analyzer can be taken on and off line with the click of a button.

Remote Access

OmniView allows remote access over LAN/WAN via a web based Java application. With proper security settings you can fully operate and configure the OmniView software and your Guided Wave NIR-O analyzer from the plant or from any remote location. Simultaneous users can view the operations, function and “health” of your Guided Wave NIR-O analyzer. This is extremely useful as the process engineer, laboratory technician, maintenance technician, and process supervisor can all access the analyzer remotely to accomplish their tasks. Furthermore, at your option Guided Wave’s Service Engineers and/or Applications Specialists can review and support your system, on demand, from our service centers.
