Must be able to Interface with Other Systems

Posted on

Measurement data, including values, alarm status, and a timestamp can be easily exported to other systems using OPC (CIMScan acting as the server), Modbus/TCP (CIMScan acting as a slave), and MQTT (CIMScan acting as a broker). MQTT is a Client Server publish/subscribe messaging transport protocol. It is lightweight, open, simple, and designed so as to … Continue reading “Must be able to Interface with Other Systems”


Must Support the Use of 3rd Party Instruments

Posted on

Many third party instruments provide one or more analog outputs for their measurements. These can be easily tied to a CIMScan remote device controller using a PD-17B analog data acquisition unit. Converting the 0-5V, 0-10V, or 4-20 mA to meaningful measurement data is easily handled by the remote device controller. The fact that CIMScan’s standard … Continue reading “Must Support the Use of 3rd Party Instruments”


Must be a fully validated system

Posted on

The CIMScan Validation Templates consist of four documents in Microsoft Word or PDF format. The documents have been designed to minimize the effort required to formally validate a CIMScan monitoring system. The requirements document and the individual validation protocols can be easily modified to meet the needs of a specific application. The Operational Qualification Protocol … Continue reading “Must be a fully validated system”


Must Be Flexible Enough to Meet Application Needs

Posted on

CIMScan is highly scalable from just a few monitoring points to thousands. Each numeric monitoring point can have a measurement value ±1,000,000,000,000 with measurements as low as 0.0000000000000001 without loss of precision. The system allows any unit of measure to be assigned to a monitoring point. If measurements are initially generated at one unit of … Continue reading “Must Be Flexible Enough to Meet Application Needs”


Must meet regulatory requirements

Posted on

CIMScan meets or exceeds the guidance published in FDA 21 CFR Part 11 which covers the security (preventing change) of data stored in electronic form and electronic signatures. CIMScan also meets or exceeds the cleanroom environmental monitoring requirements published by U.S. Pharmacopeia in USP. This document sets practice standards to help ensure that compounded sterile … Continue reading “Must meet regulatory requirements”


Must Be Reliable and Secure

All instrumentation manufactured by CIMTechniques is calibrated against NIST-traceable standards with a certified calibration certificate provided with each unit. Each unit can be calibrated in the field with the appropriate instrumentation. Our new EZcal sensors provide full 3-point calibration by simple probe replacement, eliminating the need for the instrumentation and an on-site technician.
