Architecture

FlatMesh Web Monitor runs on a high performance Microsoft Windows-based server.
A number of Windows services run in the background to perform tasks such as:

  • accept incoming connections from GPRS Gateways in the field
  • maintain connections to USB Gateways which may be directly attached to a PC acting as a server
  • pass messages between services
  • process the incoming data and perform any required configured data conversions or calculations
  • send out any required alert messages via SMS or email
  • periodic exports of data to client FTP servers for third party system integration

The core of the system is a Microsoft SQL Server database. It stores all data samples and diagnostic information for all sites.

The web front end is built on Microsoft ASP.NET which retrieves all relevant information from the database and generates reports at the user’s request.

Hosting

Senceive hosts the data for all remote systems in the field on their dedicated servers. All servers for customer deployments are housed in a secure third party data centre in the UK which has engineers on site 24/7. The operating company has multiple sites in the UK for disaster recovery and multiple Tier 1 network carriers, with no single point of failure between their data centres.

In special cases, Web Monitor may be installed on an Industrial PC or laptop on site co-located with the FlatMesh Network. This is usually only done where cellular network coverage and other Internet connection options are not available.

Login Page

Users authenticate with the system using an email address and a password which is assigned to them. Senceive is able to customise the login page for you or your company’s clients.

Site Monitor

The Site Monitor is customised with a graphic representing the site. This may be a map, technical drawing, or simply a photograph. Sensor icons are overlaid on this image and show the last reported value for that node along with its current Alarm status (e.g. clear/green/amber/red for multi-level alarm triggers). Clicking the sensor icon allows quick direct access to graphs for that sensor.

Alerts (Text and Email)

The client can have customised alert by individual node or group nodes which can be set up or reset at any time remotely. Text and email alerts are send to nominated individuals as agreed. Any data alerts, both active and historical, are shown as a summary list on the Alerts page.
