SEB Programmatic Monitoring System
Aug. 23, 2011
The Science and Engineering Building now has a monitoring system that enables researchers to ensure that their equipment, samples, and data are protected. The Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition system currently monitors 58 different sites throughout the building to make sure that critical equipment, utilities, and facilities are secure and functioning properly. Cryogenic freezers, green house bays, environmental rooms, facilities systems, essential utilities, and other equipment are monitored by the system. Building operators and researchers are notified by phone immediately if any system fails so that the problem can be remedied quickly and research is not lost.
