Liberty, the control of snow production facilities at hand.

Liberty gives each operator the possibility to control his snow production installation with flexibility, reliability and power.

 

A software suite: Management and Decision-making assistance tool

Liberty is a software suite, running in the multi-tasking Windows environment, in which many applications are combined to run a snowmaking installation.

It is intended for the control, management and facility operation of snowmaking systems using Liberty product line equipment (Rubis, Safyr & Borax). It acts on the equipment through a dual channel:

 

1) the controllers that manage the machine rooms and
2) the communication modules that manage the valves and snow producers on the trail.

 

All operating data is stored and may be reviewed by the operator to guide the snowmaking decision-making process.

 

Management of snowmaking resources

Liberty continuously monitors and changes the water and air resources of the installation to meet the needs of the snow guns based on the changing weather conditions and the set parameters of the operator. By continually monitoring all measurements on the ski hill and in the machine room Liberty accurately calculates the flow of water and air needed for each snow gun to produce the best snow quality given the local weather conditions.

Liberty also ensures the safe operation of all equipment. The start/stop sequences are performed safely using the network of controllers (the YPLC, designed by TechnoAlpin).

 

User-friendly & Ergonomic

For easy accessibility to the numerous applications that make up the Liberty suite, they were combined into a single environment called the Liberty Surfer. From Liberty Surfer, the operator can access the Launch Manager application to launch the Liberty Menu, but can also access peripheral applications such as MR Viewer, Trail Viewer, Event Log (virtual printer), the Alert service or Sno-report (customizable analysis and statistical report).

 

Upgradability & Service

Liberty is adapted and tailored to each installation it drives by integrating the specific parameters of the installation. Snowmaking system extensions are achieved with simple programming development In addition; backward compatibility of the equipment is available.

 

Additionally, the service teams from TechnoAlpin may, if necessary, remotely access the Liberty software and conduct trouble-shooting.
