DATA VISUALIZATION

Visualize your data in near-real time

You and your collaborators can see your data the same hour it happens from anywhere in the world via your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

 

Automated graphing and tool tips

Data is graphed automatically as it is uploaded. Tool tips enable you to see the value of a parameter whenever you want to take a deeper look at your data.

 

 

Customized graph viewing

View your data at different time scales and sensor resolutions.

Visualize dozens of measurements per data logger

ZENTRA Cloud and the ZL6 data logger work together to simplify your ability to visualize, manage, and share measurements from up to six sensor ports. Using METER multi-parameter sensors, you can visualize dozens of near-real-time measurements at once. Add more ZL6’s to your site, and you can track even more measurements.

 

GPS mapping

GPS signal tells you where your data loggers are installed and re-evaluates every 24 hours.

 

 

REMOTE DEVICE MANAGEMENT

Remote sensor configuration

Fix setup errors and reconfigure sensors remotely.

 

 

Low battery alerts

ZENTRA Cloud tells you when your data logger batteries are low, which means no more suprise data gaps.

Customized calibrations

Adjust the data on your graphs using a custom calibration.

Remote device management

Change the settings on your data loggers from the comfort of your office.

 

 

Firmware over the air

Your logger automatically stays up to date with the latest operating system through the cloud.

Downloading data

To download your data to an excel spreadsheet, simply click the download button.  Plus, ZENTRA Cloud’s convenient and intuitive API allows data analysis software to automatically harvest your data from its servers and run the analyses that lead to new discovery and publishable results.

Device logs

ZENTRA Cloud records how often the ZL6 is calling in, so you can check if things are working as expected.

 

EASY DATA SHARING

Simplified sharing in near-real time

You and your collaborators view trending data or analyze site conditions at the exact same time. Simply enter an email, and send an invitation.  No password sharing needed.

You control all permissions

You control the permissions of every collaborator or student. Bank-level encryption means your data is safe, and you’ll always have access to it, even if your subscription expires.  Plus, data stored on the cloud means you never lose data when staffing changes. No more lost spreadsheets.
