CCTech are a specialist provider supporting the design and operation of biomedical and containment laboratories for leading research and healthcare institutions across the UK and Ireland. Their clients include Universities, NHS hospitals and Government Research facilities
Research and testing facilities must operate to strict national and international standards of regulatory compliance in order to be licenced by the regulator. CCTech have developed a bespoke process of Stability testing to enable clients to demonstrate compliance for regulatory approval.
Stability testing includes 24hr monitoring of temperature and relative humidity of controlled rooms for a period of two weeks to ensure they comply with regulations.
CCtech engaged GLAS Energy Technology to develop and implement a wireless room monitoring system which allows the logging of the conditions for dozens of rooms to provide a complete temperature and relative humidity profile over the course of the test period.
Wireless M-Bus temperature and relative humidity sensors are placed in each of the rooms to measure the conditions. The data loggers are deployed around the building as required and a simple Cat 5 network cable is used to link the slave loggers back to the central master unit.
The data loggers send the data files to an on-site PC where it is analysed daily to monitor the conditions. The PC and the data loggers are located on their own self-contained network and we use a 3G router to allow us provide support and commissioning services remotely.
We also provided support for the calibration of the Wireless M-Bus sensors to allow easy recording of the sensor readings during the calibration process.
This solution has been used by CC Tech in several locations throughout Ireland and the UK, including NUIG a BAM site.
We selected Peter and GLAS Energy Technology because of the excellent response we received to our initial query. Peter helped us to define the requirement and his experience and resourcefulness were invaluable in overcoming technical and logistical challenges.
