G2 Data Systems

- Premium Mcerts Continuous Emissions Monitoring Software


EmiDAS offers rich functionality for the Emissions Monitoring and Data Logging industries. Easily configurable high speed data acquisiton and logging software to store, report and generate alerts from environmental monitor and industrial sensor readings.

EmiDAS is fully configurable without the need for hard-coded programming changes, even for very complex calculations and data processing.

The system can also carry out user-defined calculations and processing on incoming data if and when required. For example: converting Opacity % into mg/m3 using a Dust Calibration Factor or calculating mg/MJ of energy input for particular gas species.

There is no limit to the complexity or number of user defined calculations that can be specified by the end user.

EmiDAS can process data from a wide variety of instruments across multiple industries. If an instrument has a digital or analogue output signal it can be integrated into the EmiDAS system.

EmiDAS allows for the setting of uncertainty values, computing normalized values, adjusted values, calibration periods, plant status, instrument status, system status and plant on/off delay periods for plant start-up and shut-down.

Emissions data can be input (and output) in any user-definable unit including ppm, mg/m3, mg/Nm3, Kg/hr, %, m/s and mass emissions in Kg/Hr.

EmiDAS can also report all required emissions data such as 48 hour means as required on some sites. An almost unlimited number of auxiliary inputs can also be logged and reported such as steam flow and fuel flow. These auxiliary inputs can be a valuable tool to aid in the maximisation of plant efficiencies and detecting problems such as boiler tube leaks.

EmiDAS provides analyser quality assurance including QAL 1, QAL2, AST and QAL3 Control Charts.

Management tools are supplied to enable implementation of:

  • QAL 2 Calibration Functions
  • Uncertainty
  • QAL3 Control Charts (CUSUM Precision & Drift, Shewhart and EWMA) for on-going Analyser Quality Assurance

QAL 1 data can be entered into the system to provide the settings needed to determine maximum allowable drift limits of the instruments being monitored by the QAL 3 functions.

Real-time data and system information is displayed via a multi windowed user interface including:

  • Alarm & warning indicators
  • Block, Rolling and Partial averages
  • Trend charts
  • Bar charts
  • Data grid displays user defined averaged data in textual and graphical format
  • Error and Event logs storing all alarms, systems warnings and maintenance
  • System Auditing provides details of all logins / logouts and changes or attempted changes to the system
  • QAL3 Control Charts
  • Comprehensive online HELP manual

Being multi windowed and having the ability to re-size each window, EmiDAS looks great equally on one ot more large flat panel or standard sized monitors.

All displays have:

  • selectable units of measurement
  • selectable Raw, Validated and Adjusted (QAL2 Calibration function & Uncertainty) readings, user-defined measurements and averages that have been configured within the system
  • Historical data from commissioning onwards is accessible via the trend and reporting facilities.

Configurable warning levels and Emission Limit Values (ELV) can alert users of impending or actual ELV breaches via

  • On screen audible and visible alarms
  • Email
  • SMS 
  • Plant wide audible and visible sirens 
  • Warning lights

Configurable Partial Averaging can be used to alert users of impending breaches giving operators time to make plant adjustments before ELVs are breached.

User-definable report generation allows for submission of data to local inspectors and the Environment Agency in the required formats for the site and in bespoke formats specified by the end-user.

Reports access data immediately on its creation to provide the most up-to-date measurement and system statuses. Any date range can be queried, and this range can even be selectable to an accuracy of 1 second.

This also includes historical data from the date of commissioning and report types are as follows:

  • User Configurable Averaged Data Report
  • System Configuration Report
  • LCPD Reports including Form Air 2, 3, 6, 11
  • WID Reports
  • QAL3 Reports 
    • CUSUM Drift
    • CUSUM Precision
    • Shewhart
    • Exponentially Weighted Moving Average (EWMA)

The MCERTS reports come in PDF format with our official MCERTS Watermark ensuring that all data reported has been processed as per the standard.

All data can also be exported in a variety of formats for external examination and processing. This can assist with maximising plant efficiencies and diagnosing potential problems with the plant processes.

Data can be accessed via common communication protocols such as:

  • RS485
  • ProfiBUS
  • FieldBUS
  • ODBC
  • Analogue signals
  • OPC
  • CSV export
  • and others on request

Live Data Feeds

Monitoring data can be selected and exported in real-time for use in 3rd party systems at time periods of the user’s choice.

Distributed Access

EmiDAS can be accessed directly at a remote terminal using the EmiDAS UI or it can be distributed via a site network to multiple users or accessed over a secure LAN via the Internet.

    Certified to the highest standards as covered by the Environment Agency's Monitoring Certification Scheme
  • High speed acquisition & logging
    Proven to read and log data at 1 second intervals with no restriction on recording historical data (*)
  • Real-time graphs and charts
    High quality displays of real-time data featuring multi monitors, multi windowed and resizable graphs and charts
  • QAL3
    Management tools for implementing QAL3 and specialised reports
  • Unlimited sensor readings
    Any instrument with digital or analogue output signal can be integrated
  • Configurable Reporting

  • Multi Lingual
    In seconds, the system can be switched 'real-time' to a number of different languages

Customer reviews

  1. By David Grant on

    We use EmiDAS software on all our applications now, the Progress Database is extremely fast and the software is excellent. EmiDAS was developed for MCERTS & US-EPA compliance and is probably the most configurable software on the market - no hard coding changes ever required no matter what the application. A first class package at a very competitive price - highly recommended.
