Online Sensor Software

Turning data into information with the revolutionary s::can software

Software for water quality monitoring

Today s::can are one of the leading manufacturers of online sensors. Whilst these sensors have won awards for their instrumentation design, the real unique aspect to them is the software that can be used with them creating usable information for operators from the data produced by the sensors.

What software is available with s::can sensors?

The flagship sensor in the s::can range is the spectro::lyser, a fully submerisble UV-Vis spectrophotometer which can output any number of parameters, but also the full UV-Vis spectrum of any particular water sample. Each measurement collects a lot of data, so s::can have developed a number of software tools that enable the data to be condensed into actionable information for operators.

Why use Monitoring Station Software?

The rising popularity of online sensors means that ever increasing amounts of data are collected. Online results increase the understanding of water quality, but the amount of data can be so enormous that it is impossible to manually verify and interpret the data. Automatic validation and event detection is therefore crucial to exploit the potential of online monitoring.

What is special about the moni::tool?

s::can has developed a modular software package to improve data availability and quality. The concept looks at the whole system: hardware, software and operator. Only this all enveloping approach can guarantee that operational control and / or event detection work reliably. Using raw, unvalidated information for control or event detection will result in a high false alarm rate or in poor sensitivity.


The moni::tool allows for easy management of operations such as cleaning cycles and measurement intervals and visualises the results to show them over time or even as 3D spectra when used in conjunction with the spectro::lyser sensor.


Automatic data validation ensuring only high quality data is used for event detection.


Identifies unknown and unusual conditions and triggers an alarm.

Every s::can con::cube terminal is delivered with the basic moni::tool version for four parameters at no extra cost.


moni::tool is a revolutionary new platform for the management of an almost unlimited number of stations, online probes, analyzers and parameters. Intuitive operation – on site or remote – and reams of valuable features make moni::tool essential for state of the art sensor and station management.

Introducing moni::app

moni::app is an Android app for moni::tool. It gives you a quick overview of the current system state of your monitoring station and allows you to analyze historic data. The app is limited to displaying data, it is not possible to change any settings of moni::tool.

See the s::can of the range

The s::can range measures a wide range of parameters in numerous applications. All s::can measuring instruments are developed with the same philosophy in mind: They are intelligent, robust and require little to no maintenance.

Intelligent. Optical. OnLine.

The s::can spectrometer probes from PMA Ltd operate using the same measuring principle: Spectrometry. The spectrometer probes are the first and only instruments in the world that can measure optical spectra from 190 to 720 nm directly in liquid media. The materials contained in the medium deteriorate a light beam emanated by a lamp that transfers through the liquid. After contact, its intensity is measured by a sensor over a variety of wavelengths specific to the application.

Knowledgeable, experienced staff

Our team of dedicated field support group technicians are vastly experienced in applications and installations.  We therefore appreciate and understand how analysers work, why they were installed and what data they typically ought to produce.
