introducing ana::tool

Event Detection System

Unmatched event detection system

The s::can ana::tool system locates undiscovered and unusual conditions then enables your operators to react timely to faults in the monitored system. It determines the normality of these data and triggers an alarm when a significant deviation from normality is detected.


Ana::tool is an event detection piece of software which enables operators to act without sifting through large amounts of data.  Put simply it is a trainable piece of software that detects abnormal conditions in your water to alert you to take action.  

Detection in every scenario

All event information is automatically aggregated into a traffic light” system and a % deviation from normal” output. Additionally, analogue and digital outputs as well as text notifications can be triggered.
Ana::tool trains itself using the data streams available to it, and will learn automatically which bits of data are useful for event detection, and which ones aren’t.



Unmatched event detection tools based on proven algorithms for real-time event detection that use data streams from all connected probes separately and in combination.


The only software developed by the market leader to be specifically capable of exploiting the enormous information contained in UV spectra which provide the most sensitive and stable data source for event detection.


ana::tool is optimised for use of multi-dimensional spectral data, but will also work with single or multiple one-dimensional inputs.


Applies a variety of algorithms during real-time analysis of data and automatically weights the results as appropriate.


All event information is automatically aggregated into a “traffic light” output and a “% deviation from normal” output. Furthermore, analogue and digital outputs as well as text notifications can be triggered.


Trains itself on any type of data streams coming in, and will learn automatically which data are useful for event detection.

Other software tools available with your s::can instrumentation


The moni::tool allows for easy management of operations such as cleaning cycles and measurement intervals and visualises the results to show them over time or even as 3D spectra when used in conjunction with the spectro::lyser sensor.


Automatic data validation ensuring only high quality data is used for event detection.

Every s::can con::cube terminal is delivered with the basic moni::tool version for four parameters at no extra cost.

Intelligent. Optical. OnLine.

moni::tool is a revolutionary new platform for the management of an almost unlimited number of stations, online probes, analyzers and parameters. Intuitive operation – on site or remote – and reams of valuable features make moni::tool essential for state of the art sensor and station management.

moni::app now brings moni::tool to your Smartphone! Download it today from the Google Play Store.

Introducing moni::app

moni::app is an Android app for moni::tool. It gives you a quick overview of the current system state of your monitoring station and allows you to analyze historic data. The app is limited to displaying data, it is not possible to change any settings of moni::tool.

See the complete s::can range

The s::can range measures a wide range of parameters in numerous applications. All s::can measuring instruments are developed with the same philosophy in mind: They are intelligent, robust and require little to no maintenance.

Intelligent. Optical. OnLine.

The s::can spectrometer probes from PMA Ltd operate using the same measuring principle: Spectrometry. The spectrometer probes are the first and only instruments in the world that can measure optical spectra from 190 to 720 nm directly in liquid media. The materials contained in the medium deteriorate a light beam emanated by a lamp that transfers through the liquid. After contact, its intensity is measured by a sensor over a variety of wavelengths specific to the application.
