Runs on a resource-efficient Linux OS, supports remote data access through a secure web interface
Desktop application enabling remote management of a water quality monitoring system
ZAPS Technologies is a provider of high-precision optical instrumentation and services for water quality monitoring. The company’s flagship product is LiquID Station — a real-time multi-parameter water monitoring system, which measures water quality without reagents.
ZAPS Technologies turned to Softeq to port the software system underpinning LiquID Station’s business logic from Windows to a more resource-efficient Linux OS, and enable remote control and calibration capabilities to manage two of its modules (optical filters module and measurement data collection module) via a web interface.
One of the key requirements was to re-write the software using more traditional programming languages such as C++ and Java: the solution was initially based on the LabVIEW platform, which restricted its extensibility.
Seamless software-to-hardware communication
The Softeq team carried out system porting to Linux and developed a number of Java-driven interfaces to enable the software to seamlessly communicate with specific hardware devices:
Remote data access
LiquID Station supports remote data access through a secure web user interface (WUI) enabling:
The networking and remote access security is ensured with the SSL and SSH protocols, respectively. The roles and passwords are segregated to enable secure system updating and remote management.
