M8 – Software

Data collection and remote control software
software in-line analyzers


The M8 software package is a powerful remote control and data acquisition software used with the Maselli in-line analyzers. It operates on PC based hardware and can be installed at-line on a local PC based HMI and/or on a laboratory PC. The M8 software can be configured with just a few simple steps to perform sensor calibrations and start production. The software displays real time measurements as it relates to user defined quality control parameters and alerts the operator of any out of specification situations. The collected data may also be extracted for further analysis. The use of different password levels guarantees traceability of the various operations and minimizes the risk of any unauthorized personnel accessing sensitive data or settings. The software can easily be configured to communicate with external networks allowing remote access for data analysis and remote troubleshooting.

The software may be connected to up 8 analyzers.
Software: Operative software created in the Microsoft® Windows® environment with numerical and/or synoptic and/or graphic display panels and button and/or tool bar commands.
Possibility to choose one of several languages for display menus and messages.
Real time display, complete control and modification of all functions, variables and operating parameters in use in the Soft Drinks Analysis Unit.
Possibility to create, modify and import recipes holding all the operating parameters of the instruments connected to the system.
Creation and saving of up to 1999 (maximum) combinations of operating parameters, each for a specific product.
Storage of data in a Microsoft® Access format databases with the possibility to export data in Excel format for graphic, statistical and qualitative analysis.
Tele-assistance or remote control of all functions.
Possibility to see, in real time, the instrument’s operating parameters, in a numerical or graph format, for complete remote control and for calculation of the qualitative parameters Ca, Cp and Cpk.
Possibility to save, display and print in a database, all the operations performed on the various instruments.
Possibility to manage four security levels for user access to operations.
Possibility to carry out automatic corrections of the targets and zero values, depending on sugar inversion.
Possibility to export and import recipes in text format ASCII (Excel).
Possibility to automatically save, on launching a new recipe, a qualitative report of the previous recipe in pdf format.
This report can be sent automatically by email to a recipient (the Quality Manager, for example).
Possibility for the archive to provide reports which show the data simultaneously in a numerical, graphic and statistical format, as well as quality reports for each day of production. Said reports can be exported in Excel.
Possibility, by pressing a single icon, to save all the files containing software configurations and the operations performed by the user in a single zipped file, as well as the archive for the last 5 days.
Possibility to check correct operation of the instrument by saving in a database the differences compared to the laboratory values and perform calibration at a later date using this data.
