New version of ATASSplus sets new standards
Intelligent snow-making technology – simple and efficient
Even slope coverage all the way from the mountain top to the valley from the fall right through to the spring – such is the challenge in snow-making technology. A guarantee of careful stewardship of resources is also imperative. TechnoAlpin attempted to meet these requirements years ago with the market launch of its ATASSplus control software. The in-house software department is always busy working on improvements and further developments to the software. And now a completely new version of ATASSplus will be out this spring.
The new ATASSplus is simple and quick. The entire system can be controlled with a few clicks of the mouse. The system boasts a number of new features which simplify the operation of the system, such as a new start-stop assistant and help facilities to provide support in case of malfunctions. There are fundamental changes to the user interface of the program. The machines are shown in a chart pane and can be operated from this view. The charts now have infinite zooming and repositioning capability. Any changes to data are relayed in what virtually amounts to real-time, giving the user access to the latest information at all times.
Control at a glance
All the machines can be operated via the device manager. It is possible to select and manage more than one machine at the same time. Other new features include the simplified search facility for specific machines and the filter option. This means that a clear overview can be maintained even with large systems. ATASSplus also allows the analysis of all data. Temperature sequences, water consumption and operating hours can easily be monitored and analyzed.
It is also possible with ATASSplus for several users to work on the system at the same time. As such, the different operators in the various stations can respond as required in their particular circumstances - without delay. Each computer can be used autonomously. This saves valuable time.
The system has a communication function which is integrated in the interface and allows simple configuration and individual adjustment of profiles at any time. ATASSplus sends personalized SMS messages via this function. The members of the snow-making team can therefore respond on the spot.
Intelligent snow-making with ATASSplus
Only fully automated systems allow simple and efficient exploitation of the increasingly shorter snow-generation windows - when the temperature is at its optimum - or instant responses to relevant parameter changes. The ATASSplus software collects data from snow guns and meteo stations and optimizes the snow production according to the prevailing conditions. This provides the basis for clever water and air management and continuous energy control. Operational states and the consumption of resources can thus be monitored and evaluated with maximum accuracy, optimizing operating costs and guaranteeing consistent snow quality down the entire length of the slope. As such, ATASSplus is far more than a mere means of automatic snow-making. The latest version is an intelligent system combining sophisticated engineering with simple operation.
Always up to speed with the latest developments
The TechnoAlpin software department is permanently engaged in making improvements to ATASSplus. The new version is a big step forward, and further updates are already in the pipeline. By entering into an update contract, customers can make sure that they always have the latest version of the software. Any further developments are then automatically fed into their system. Customers who have already installed a version of ATASSplus will automatically receive the new version of ATASSplus if they take out an update contract.
