Feed analysis operations made simpler with Remote Internet Access (RINA™ )
FOSS has released FOSS hosted RINA, an internet-based software suite that allows near infrared (NIR) feed analysis to be performed free of local concerns about issues such as calibration maintenance and instrument performance.
The RINA software suite provides an Internet-based network connecting individual instruments to a control centre. NIR experts at the centre will perform monitoring and management tasks remotely, allowing the local user to get on with routine analysis operations secure in the knowledge that an instrument is running perfectly and delivering reliable results. Remote troubleshooting can also be performed, avoiding the need for an on-site expert.
Currently, FOSS Hosted RINA supports FOSS InfraXactTM, FOSS NIRSystems II and FOSS XDS™ bench instruments.
Consistent and secure data
All prediction models and products are set up in RINA just once for the entire network. Any changes or updates are easily made and positively implemented throughout the network using a Network Manager program. This assures the integrity of the complete analytical system. Centralized calibration operations also protect against unauthorised use and copying of calibration data.
Optional service levels
The user can choose the level of service required according to business requirements. Some may opt for a full package allowing NIR experts at the central server location to set-up manage and maintain their instruments. Others may choose just to exploit just the RINA highway part, using their own resources to run and control connected instruments.
‘FOSS hosted RINA’ refers to the fact that it is FOSS, rather than the customer, that takes charge of running the network. A separate version, ‘Customer Hosted RINA’ has previously been released. As the name implies, this version is intended for very large organisations who wish to run their own RINA operations.
