Your Data Acquisition System (DAS) helps to monitor emissions and keep your company compliant. When you determined it is time to replace your DAS there are several factors you need to take into consideration while moving forward with the upgrade. Discover some of the hidden challenges associated with the endeavor:
Often overlooked, infrastructure can pose as a major hindrance to a successful DAS upgrade. Ethernet is the most common connection. You’ll want to make sure you have connectivity from all your monitoring locations that loops to one, central location. Incorporate the process group and IT team into the decision-making process to make sure every angle is covered. Evaluate current needs with those of the future in mind.

When it comes to managing DAS and CEMS systems, there are some common challenges that arise. Compliance Managers must have access to the most current and thorough emissions data to ensure regulations are being met. Here are five common DAS and CEMS operations concerns and accompanying solutions:
1. Multiple Regulations
Combustion units are typically subject to multiple air regulatory programs. More often than not, different rules require different validations, averaging, calculations and/or reporting. Steps you can take to address this problem include fully understanding your company’s compliance obligations (NSPS, NESHAPS, Title V), determining if “harmonization” is permitted among the various programs, and checking DAS documentation and the QA/QC Plan to make sure you’re in compliance with all necessary validation and ongoing QA tests.
*UPDATE May 1, 2019 – The EPA has delayed this requirement until Q3.*
By now, most VIM customers that report using ECMPS have heard that the EPA is adding System and Component IDs during missing data periods beginning with the 2019 Q2 reporting period. Here is a summary of what you need to know if you are using VIM’s software:Read more »
