ONET Software for Administration of Spectrometer Networks

The ONET software is a server application accessed via a browser-based web interface (WebUI), allowing to set up, administrate and control a network of FT-NIR instruments from anywhere in the world.

All data measured on local spectrometers are centrally stored. Nevertheless, all data and required files are still available locally, which allows the analysis of samples at any time even when the network is temporarily disconnected.

  • Efficient remote support
  • Utilization of centralized expertise
  • Full control of local setup
  • Simplified local workflows
  • Cost savings by ensuring system integrity

FT-NIR spectroscopy has become extremely important for quality control tasks due to its ease of use for routine operators. Method development and the management of large spectrometer pools can however be challenging. With the continuous demands for cost savings, it is virtually impossible to have NIR expertise in every single laboratory or production site. Therefore the need for a central administration, method development and system maintenance is essential.

With ONET, all methods can be centrally set up and adapted, reducing the need for local expertise and training. Procedures and results are harmonized and based on the same setup and calibrations. Audit trails guarantee the full transparency of products, methods and operator interactions, assuring the integrity of the data at all times.

Calibration updates can be rolled out to all instruments inside the company network or specific versions can be assigned to a limited number of spectrometers. This enables the creation of a global instrument network, where local adjustments can be done if required.

The instrument performance can be monitored remotely at all times, and system tests can be defined and carried out according to scheduled routines.

Both ONET and OPUS users can be administrated in the ONET User Management page.
All spectrometers inside the network and their current statuses are listed.
The data tab provides the user with trend charts and tables from the desired products.
