Atlas Introduces New Weather-Ometer® User Interface Software to Facilitate Easier Sample Tracking

May 15, 2013, Chicago, IL – Atlas Material Testing Technology LLC is pleased to announce the introduction of a new user interface software for its current production Weather-Ometers. This latest software includes the following new enhancements: 
 
E-mail Notification – Tracking the Weather-Ometer's status is now just an e-mail alert away! The new tool prompts the instrument to automatically send an e-mail when several user-defined conditions are met, including when:
• a test is completed
• a scheduled stop is reached
• an alarm is triggered
• a scheduled maintenance/calibration is required

The software allows users to input multiple e-mail addresses (including defining the "To" and "CC" details), as well as specify when to send e-mails based on the conditions listed above. 

 

Sample Management – Given the extensive capacity of the Weather-Ometer®, it is common for multiple tests with multiple start times to run in the same instrument. The task of recording and keeping track of those individual tests has been a manual process, usually accomplished with log books or home made spreadsheets / databases. With this new tool, keeping track of exposure time is easier than ever. Operators can keep track of multiple tests within the same Weather-Ometer® right on the user interface. This allows users to:
• Name specific sets of samples
• Input the number of specimens within each sample set
• Tell the Weather-Ometer® if the samples are currently on exposure or out of the instrument for evaluation purposes
• Delete sample sets once exposures are complete


Up to 10 individual sample sets can be tracked at once, either by time or by radiant dosage.
