Critical Equipment Monitoring

The university utilizes a number of systems that monitor critical equipment 24/7 for failure alarms. The location of your laboratory dictates which system is available. The primary system Pro-Watch, is used throughout the medical campus and operated by the Department of Security. The university also utilizes newer web-based systems including Yokogawa, Rees Scientific, Mesa Labs, SensoScientific, Thermo Forma Smart Vue and Tutela Monitoring Systems.

Please contact Ramon Rodriguez at (305) 243-8375 or rrodrig4@med.miami.edu for information regarding the connection of your equipment to Pro-Watch.
