Neon IP Dataloggers - Software

  • Overview

    The Neon Application Software is a suite of software and documentation which allows clients to set up their own Neon system on existing server hardware, or new server hardware located at the client’s premises. The software is provided on a licence basis and allows clients to set up a measurement system using Neon Remote Terminals/loggers in the field and have these communicate with the central server. Services to install, set up, commission, and support the Neon server are provided. Annual software maintenance and application support agreements are available.

    The Neon Applications software uses leading technologies to provide access to remote instruments in the fields via standard internet access methods and protocols.

    The Neon Applications software provides remote data collection and logger-scheme updating for Neon Remote Terminals (NRTs) and any connected loggers (e.g., Starlogger, Prologger, Starflow Instrument, Precision Water Level Instrument) from any internet access point in the world. The system has been specifically designed for environmental data collection and automated meter reading. Low cost and very low power consumption with a high level of on-line access, diagnosis, and reconfiguration have been key design targets.

    Software Demonstration
    You can trial the Neon system on the Neon Website Demo page.
