- Version 7950 - Gas Multi-Point Software



The LumaSoft Gas Multi-Point 7950 software allows industrial manufacturers to easily monitor up to 5 different gases and remotely control up to 24 multi-gas monitors from a single computer.

  • Supports all of INNOVA 1316 models (Combustion, Refrigerant leak detection and Fermentation monitoring)
  • Stores up to five gas concentrations for each location
  • Real time and historical displays of measurement data in both table and graphical window
  • Easy exchange of displayed data for different measurement locations
  • Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 compatible
  • Measurement data stored in SQL Server 2005 database
  • Online access to measurement data from Microsoft Excel
  • Login-secured access to measurement data
  • Alarm reporting for each gas at each measurement location
  • Build in OPC Server for an easy integration to the next level control system

The LumaSoft Gas Multi Point 7950 enables remote control from a personal computer of up to 24 Multi Gas Monitor - INNOVA 1316 models. The software coordinates the functions of the instruments to form a monitoring system which can perform gas-monitoring tasks in up to 24 different locations. When a user sets up a measurement task using the software, the task is performed automatically and measurement data is collected and displayed on the screen.

This helps industrial plants realize cost savings by:

  • Creating smaller monitoring systems and expand in the future if needed.
  • Reduce expensive production downtime by allowing plants to turn off specific monitoring channels for maintenance without affecting the rest of the system.
  • Save the installation of long gas sampling lines limiting the risk of contamination between sampling points.

With features such as USB functionality, independent sensors, an easy-to-use intuitive interface and the ability to create custom reports, the LumaSoft Gas Multi-Point 7950 software is a powerful tool for industrial manufacturers.

For example, the LumaSoft Gas Multi-Point 7950 software can be used in processes such as exhaust gas analysis for fermenters in combination with the 1316 multi-gas monitor creating a scalable system as shown below

The LumaSoft Gas Multi Point 7950 software requires a license dongle connected to the USB port and a 1316 Multi Gas Monitor in order to run with all the offered functionalities.

When connected to an INNOVA 1316 Multi-Gas Monitor, the Demo Version offers you accessibility to all function during a 30 minutes time period without the need of license dongle.

The Monitors are connected to the computer via the USB or the RS232 interface cables. To connect multiple Monitors to the computer USB-hubs can be used. The user decides where the measurements should be taken. Air-samples are then drawn from the locations and analyzed by the Gas Monitors.

The user starts the 7950 and opens a database to receive the data from the new task and then configures the 7950 to the desired task. The configuration windows are shown in Fig. 1 and 2. When the configuration is complete the task can be started and the 7950 is in control of the instruments.

Application areas:

  • Remote-control of a system comprising: up to 24 Multi Gas Monitor -INNOVA 1316 models
  • Enables multi-gas sampling in up to 24 locations


Multipoint Gas Monitoring
The 7950 comprises a powerful Multi-Point, Multi-Gas monitoring system, controlling up to 24 Multi Gas Monitors. Each Monitor can then measure the concentrations of up to five gases in each sample.

Data Exchange Capability
All Data stored in SQL server 2005 database are easily accessible while performing a measurement task. The user has online access to the measurement data from Microsoft Excel while the instrument is running. Data can also be exported to Excel during a measurement task or used for tailor made report.


Data Display and Output
Measurement data, and the running status of the instruments, are displayed on screen. Measurement data can be presented as a graphical window or in table form; each is updated as new data is received. When using the graphical window, up to five curves (gas-concentration/time) can be shown simultaneously.

Data Display
The numeric window is represented as two tabs, a Real-Time tab present- ing the instantaneous data and a Historical tab.

The 7950 software collects measurement data every 1 second from the 1316 Gas monitors and stores the measured data into the SQL server database immediately.

The measured data can be re-sampled and averaged by the 7950 in order to reduce the amount of displayed data in the numeric and graphical windows.


Statistical Data
In the graphical window (Fig. 3) statistical data can be shown next to the measurement results for each channel. Within a certain time span: min, max, mean and standard deviation for the gasses measured in the selected task are shown.


Alarm Features

  • The function is used to define software alarms for each gas on each channel when the concentration reaches either a minimum or a maximum level. There are four different alarms that can be configured: Low, Low-Low, High, and High-High.
  • The low alarm can be set to give a warning when the concentration of the gas is dropping below the normal level. The low-low alarm can be configured to give an alarm whenever the gas concentration drops below the lowest allowable concentration.
  • The High and High-High alarm levels are set to give alarm for a concentration above a certain limit and when the maximum allowable concentration is exceeded.


OPC Interface
The LumaSoft Gas Multi Point 7950 is supplied with a build in OPC Server to give access from an OPC Client. The OPC Server/Client system enables transfer of Setup, Measurement Data and Alarms.

Event Marks
While running a measurement task it is possible to mark individual measurements with an event mark to attach a description of a certain event occurred at that particular time.

Error and Warnings
Measurement error and warnings from the attached Gas Monitors are reported and displayed in the 7950 Software. Error and warnings during handling of the software are also displayed.

The 7950 software, USB driver and manual is supplied on CDs and comes complete with a license dongle. Data analysis on existing data files can be done without the dongle.
