DataNet Implementation 
A DataNet system with the DataSuite software was implemented.

The monitored points include laboratories, laboratory equipment, warehouses, climate chambers, in addition to sample and document archives.
To ensure a stable transmission network, the system includes 25 loggers and 8 repeaters. A GSM USB modem was connected to the DataSuite software to enable SMS notifications. Customized PDF reports are sent via email to a defined distribution list.

Tip of the Month - Disabling the Mini DataNet Device Filter
Tip of the Month
Disabling the Mini DataNet Device Filter

Up until DataSuite v2.0.6.0, Mini DataNet users had to manually enter the device serial number in the Mini DataNet Device Filter, otherwise it wouldn't be able to join your DataNet network.
To help speed up your Mini DataNet implementation, especially when many devices are involved, from v2.0.6.0 (released last month), we added the ability to disable this device filter. When disabled, any Mini DataNet device can freely join any network in range, even if you haven't entered its serial number in DataSuite. To disable the filter, simply unselect the Use Filter checkbox in the Device Filter window (default is enabled). We do recommend using the filter if you are running multiple networks, so the device won't join the wrong network.
Please consult the latest DataSuite User Guide for more details.
