TOPIC: “ACRONET® Paradigm”

“ACRONET® Paradigm” 7 years 4 months ago #110

exactly! the basic concept of the ACRONET Paradigm is that, by properly selecting the various components, you can create different monitoring systems, able to respond each time to a different design specifications, thereby optimizing cost of solutions as a function of what is necessary .

In any case , thanks to the end user labour , we are confident in a strong reduction of the final cost of the measures, with respect to a similar system , both professional and amateur , got trough the traditional business model .
(not to mention the ethical aspects and the opening of the artifacts and design of standard data formats )

The further question relates to the measure of the solutions level quality , I have to admit that we have not yet a statistic large enough ( we are too young :-) . At the moment, for configurations published ( only professional ), sure of the global reduction of final measures price, we have chosen the components without pay much attention to the singular component price, so presumably they have an higher quality.
( Our goal was to minimize the frequency of interventions by the end user after the installation)

Statistics are indeed probably a challenge - reminds me of the challenge of determining the life expectancy of camera shutters, where you can probably get a meaningful reliability estimate of the obsolete cameras. :)

So even in the case of the components, you need to go with manufacturer reputation and price - rather than something more formal?

Matti you said: "So even in the case of the components, you need to go with manufacturer reputation and price - rather than something more formal?"

My undestanding is that some manufacturer sell sensors which are WMO compliant and that the ACRONET paradigm can adopt them, whenever it is needed.

What do you think?

Hi Antonio,

So can we say that anything WMO compliant is professional, but everything professional (components or systems) is not WMO compliant? :)

in our vision, "professional" and "WMO compliant" are two different features you can reach with "Acronet Paradigm" configurations

Indeed you can realize one amateur configuration wmo compliant, and viceversa (for example in a non-meteorological monitoring system... www.acronet.cc/configuration/laspezia/).

The professionally level of the final result is defined only from quality (and price?) of elementary components.

Compliance with the standards, in many cases is "just" related to respect of technical specification (f.i: dimension of rain-gauges mouth, et,c), and you can reach it both with high and low level instruments

Matti, Antonio and Everybody, a specific question for you.

After a long weekend I realized what I meant in our definition of Acronet Paradigm with the word "Professional"... I actually meant "not-Prototypes"

I try to clear up. In Open Hardware movements we have another big Italian project named ARDUINO (I'm sure you already heard) with wich you can also make a monitoring system... better, a prototype of monitoring System... they work just in lab, but you can't install it on field because they aren't ready (no watchdog, no IP protection standard etc).

Well, instead of ARDUINO, our Systems are "Not Prototypes", that is, you can use them directly on field to measure the environmental variables both in professional and in amateur way.

now, the question is: "Is there in technical English a specific word to indicate the "not prototype" concept?

I found "Actual System", but I'm not sure....

thanks a lot...

C.
