The GE Kaye LabWatch LT Monitoring
System
The GE Kaye LabWatch LT monitoring software system integrates RF ValProbe sensors,
measurement hardware and networked PCs into a comprehensive solution for laboratory,
warehouse and stability monitoring. Customers can incorporate wireless sensors for
differential pressure, relative humidity, temperature, contact closure, CO2, and any
wireless device that outputs an analog or digital signal. They can also add, replace or
delete sensors as a facility expands or changes.
LabWatch LT software combines three functions. The system monitoring software allows
users to perform real-time monitoring of groups of sensors, with color coding to indicate
alarm levels. Users can click on individual sensors for more detailed information on
trending, tabular data and alarm configuration, or to change the sensor tag description. The
Alarms screen provides lists of recent alarms, and the Audit screen allows users to record
and check the audit trail. For system administration, the Configuration screen enables
system administrators to manage alarm contacts (e-mail and telephone) and
acknowledgements, user accounts, calibration records, tag and group configurations, and
basic system display parameters. All comments are held in a secure database that becomes
part of the permanent record, archived to a secure audit trail in compliance with 21 CFR
Part 11.
To signal personnel immediately when alarm events occur, LabWatch LT provides alarm
notification via telephone and e-mail contacts:
•
A flashing area on main screen shows the alarm location and details the alarm
condition
•
Automatic dialing/emailing from a priority list that calls personnel via telephone or
e-mail
•
User dial-in from a remote site to inquire about system status.

Chapter 1. The GE Kaye LabWatch LT Monitoring System
Automatic dialing for remote personnel allows LabWatch LT to deliver a message using
text to speech messaging to notify the recipient of the alarm description and condition. An
administrator can arrange the calling list in a cascading fashion to ensure the most efficient
response to alarm situations.
Report creation allows you to create reports from a secure database. Users can generate six
types of reports: Real-time, History, Single Tag Alarm, Mean Kinetic Temperature
(MKT), Audit Trail and Calibration reports. A query function provides access to any type
of Audit Trail reporting, from complete reports over any time period to specific reports
focused on a particular system point or event.
To control user access, a system administrator grants access privileges and maintains the
operator list. Each user receives an individual user ID and password combination that
allows entry at the appropriate security level.

2.2 Setting up RF ValProbe Hardware
Before you install LabWatch LT, be sure your RF ValProbe Base Station (s) and Loggers
are transmitting and receiving in a network linked to the PC in which you have installed
LabWatch LT.
Setting up an RF ValProbe hardware system for operation involves three steps:.
1. Setting up the Base Station.
2. Connecting any External Sensors or Auxiliary Inputs.
3. Setting up and positioning the Loggers.
2.2.1 Setting Up the Base Station
Starting the Base Station requires plugging in the power supply and the USB or Ethernet
connections. The rear of the Base Station appears similar to Figure 1 below.

2.2.1 Setting Up the Base Station (cont.)
A new Base Station needs configuring before it is added to the LabWatch LT system. By
default, Base Stations are in USB mode but must be switched to Ethernet. Configuration
involves four steps:
1. Switch the Base Station from USB to Ethernet mode.
2. Put the Base Station on the Ethernet and make sure it is online and that the LabWatch
LT PC is able to ping it.
3. Assign an RF network ID to Base Station, All Loggers intended for the Base Station
should also be set with same Network ID manually; all loggers will communicate with
the Base Station on that Network ID. However, be sure no two Base Stations have
same network ID.
4. Perform the Base Station’s Time Synchronization against the PC Time on which Lab
watch Lite Software is running.

2.2.2 Connecting an External Sensor and Auxiliary Inputs
If any of your Loggers are designed for use with an external sensor, that sensor will have
been shipped in the same package as your Logger.
•
To connect the sensor to the Logger, simply slide the connection end of the sensor into
the hole on the right side of the Logger.
•
To disconnect the sensor from the Logger, pull back the connection sleeve (the
grooved part visible outside the connection) and you can pull out the sensor.
CAUTION!
When handling external sensors, avoid bending the sensor near
either the tip or connector ends. Repeated bending will damage the
sensor.
You connect auxiliary inputs (4-20 mA, 0-10V or contact closure) via the terminal at the
top of the Logger shown in Figure 10 below. Figure 11 below illustrates wiring
connections for the auxiliary inputs.

2.2.2 Connecting an External Sensor and Auxiliary Inputs (cont.)
Note: For a 2 or 5-channel Logger, the sensors are prewired to terminal blocks inside
the Logger. To replace or reattach a sensor, you must remove the cover and
retaining bar, remove the terminal block for the existing sensor, attach the
terminal block of the new sensor, and replace the retaining bar and cover.
2.2.3 Setting up the Loggers
When you are setting up the Loggers, you must first be sure that they are switched on, and
that they have the same network ID (from 0 to 9 or A to F) as the Base Station. (For
instance, all Loggers must have the network ID “5” if the Base Station has the ID “5”.)
IMPORTANT: If you have more than one Base Station, each one must be configured with a
unique network ID.
To switch on the Logger, see the back of the Logger above the battery panel, as shown in
Figure 12. Slide the switch below the network ID wheel to the right to turn on the logger.

2.2.3 Setting Up the Loggers (cont.)
Be sure the network ID for both Base Station and Loggers is set up as shown on page 15.
If you need to adjust the Logger’s network ID, use a small screwdriver to turn the arrow in
the middle of the network ID wheel in Figure 12 on page 14. Be sure the arrow points to
the appropriate ID number. (You can choose from numbers 0 through 9, and letters A
through F.)
Note: You must change the Logger network ID before you switch on the Logger. If you
have already switched the Logger on, switch it off and then turn it back on so the
Logger can read the correct ID.

2.2.4 Logger Installation Guidelines
You can now position the Loggers. Each Logger must be no more than 300 ft. distant from
the Base Station and the other Loggers. GE offers several recommendations for logger
placement:
•
Install the Loggers at least one to two feet above the ground or floor. For better RF
transmission, place them as high as possible. If possible, raise or lower the Base
Station and Loggers above or below walls or any obstruction.
•
•
Point the Logger antenna upwards for best results.
•
If Loggers are placed at different heights, make sure that they are within antenna range
(within 300 ft. from the Base Station or another logger). The RF signal is transmitted
in an arc, with maximum signal strength occurring in the area 45° above and below
the tip of the antenna.
•
Be aware that metal surroundings can interfere with RF transmission; the Logger may
transmit, but the signal will be weaker. Shorten the transmission distance accordingly.
•
Do not install Loggers next to a cordless phone base or other 2.4 GHz transmission
device.
•
•
Do not install Loggers on a vibrating surface.
Do not position the Loggers directly above or below each other. Stagger their
positions for better transmission.
Do not place Loggers where the temperature is outside their rated operating range.
IMPORTANT: If you are using Loggers with internal sensors, be sure the vents on the side
remain uncovered. If the vents are covered, the sensors cannot provide
correct readings.

3.1 The Monitoring Screen
The Monitoring screen, the first screen to appear once you have logged onto LabWatch
LT, provides a concise overview of the various groups of sensors that make up a LabWatch
LT system. As with the other major screens, the header lists the number of current
unacknowledged alarms.
At the bottom of the screen, the Area series of buttons offers a scrolling list of the userassigned alarm areas (groups). Any group with at least one unacknowledged alarm will
flash red, while the others will remain blue. Users can create any number of individual
alarm areas with any number of tags. (GE recommends defining areas with up to 30 tags
for better and clearer depiction on a full screen view.)
When you click on any of these buttons, you can survey the status of the alarms assigned
to this group in the center of the screen. Users can display all areas, or up to four groups on
the screen at any one time, in three different views — List (tabular data, as shown in
Figure 41 on the previous page), Graph (a color-coded graph of the individual tags), and
Floor (displaying tag icons superimposed over a map of the facility floor plan). To
determine the number of areas displayed on the monitor at any one time (from one to
four), click on the appropriate button in the Display View option.
For example, if you click on the two-pane button, a two-area screen appears, with the right

The tab that initially appears, Trending, opens a live trend of the selected point. It appears
blank when first opened, but then updates at 10-minute intervals. At the top of the screen,
it displays the tag name, description and current value. If the tab remains open, it
continues to collect and display data, allowing scrolling in the predetermined minutes. If
you move the cursor to a particular point on the graph, a popup displays the date, time and
value for a specific point.
Note: Trending data only covers readings for the past hour.

Kaye LabWatch® LT User’s Manual
75
Chapter 7. Creating Reports
7.1 Report Types
LabWatch LT also lets you create the following reports from secure historical data:
Daily Report — LabWatch LT can be configured to automatically generate a Daily
Report covering 24 hours of the day. The Daily Report contains each tag name, description
and its hourly minimum, maximum, and average values over a specific 24-hour period.
Historical Data —The software creates an Historical Data Report using information from
a secure database. Four types of Historical Data Reports are available: Values, Period
Summary, Min/Max/Avg and Alarm. You can request a Values report that includes all
values for selected tags at specified intervals over a defined period of time. You can also
filter tag values by defining upper and lower limits. Values that exceed the specified upper
limit and those values that fall below the specified lower limit are included in the report
and marked with High or Low.
With a Min/Max/Avg report, you obtain the minimum, maximum, and average values for
selected tags at specified intervals over a defined period of time. These can be used to
produce daily or weekly reports.
The Alarm report displays the Alarm and Audit history for the selected tag(s).
Mean Kinetic Temperature (MKT)* — MKT is the isothermal temperature that
corresponds to the kinetic effects of a time temperature distribution. The MKT calculation
produces a single value that characterizes the effect of fluctuating temperatures on longterm product storage by weighing higher temperatures more heavily than lower ones. This
is appropriate because product degradation occurs at an accelerated rate at higher
temperatures.
LabWatch LT extracts data from the historical data files, performs an MKT calculation on
the selected inputs, and reports the result in an MKT Report.
Single Tag Alarm Report— LabWatch LT can also create an alarm report for a single tag
for a specified single day. It contains Alarm and Audit history for a selected tag for the
selected day.
Audit Trail Report —You can create an Audit Trail report for specified groups or tags,
including all audit trail events or those you specify.

7.2 Reporting Operation and Benefits
LabWatch LT provides the following benefits:
•
Secure encrypted audit trails, which meet FDA guidelines for electronic records and
data (FDA Regulation 21 CFR part 11)
•
An alarm log that chronologically records every event and operator action
•
Ability to quickly sort or query the alarm data by tags and tag descriptors over a
defined time period
•
User name and password controlled access
•
User can select only 100 tags for a report
•
If the criteria for generating report results in a large set of records, the system prompts
the user to tweak the criteria (e.g., a large date range).

A.7 Telephone Alarm Notification Process
A.7.1 Steps in a Call
1. A user receives the call, but must enter the 4-digit access code.
2. The user enters the access code; if the access code is not valid, the telephone system
tries three (3) times and then disconnects.
3. If the access code is valid, the message covers alarms for Tags for which the user is
responsible. A user can request message replay.
4. The system asks for an acknowledgement code.
5. If the acknowledgement code is invalid, the call is disconnected. If the
acknowledgement code is correct, the user acknowledges all alarms, and confirms.
6. The call ends.
A.7.2 The Telephone Notification Process
•
Users assigned to a group will have priority and will be notified based on their
priority.
•
Users will also have schedule defined and, within that schedule, only the user will be
notified.
•
If user1 is unable to take the call, the system will try three times.
•
If the system cannot connect after 3 retries, the call will go to next user in priority list.
•
This cycle will repeat until any one of the users acknowledges the alarms.
•
Each user will have only one number.
•
If any user of the group acknowledges the call, the system will stop calling, and the
next user in the priority list will not receive a call.

Alarm Acknowledgement: If a user acknowledges an alarm, there are two possible
changes in the system.
1. If the alarm is acknowledged, the value stabilizes to an OK state, then the alarm is
cleared from the Alarm Tab. Also, the flashing of the alarm for the tag stops at the
monitoring screen.
2. If the alarm is acknowledged, the value does not reach an OK state (still retains in an
alarm condition), then the flashing of the alarm is stopped, but the alarm state is still
retained. Usually the alarm state at Alarm tab and at the monitoring screen refreshes
every minute.
Alarm Delay: Along with values, users can set a delay period for an alarm (in hours,
minutes and seconds, up to 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds), before triggering an
alarm on the screen
Comm Alarms: Comm alarm indicates loss of communication with a particular tag. It
may be because of several reasons; for example, the RF logger is out of range and not able
to communicate with the system, or there is a loose sensor in the logger.
IMPORTANT: Open Circuit, Over Range and Under Range alarms are all reported under
Comm alarms in LabWatch LT.
Hi and HiHi Alarms: Two high alarms, HI and HIHI, create an alarm on the screen that
appears in the audit trail, if a value rises above the preset value. Since they are independent
limits, a user has two different thresholds for alarming. (Typically, the HIHI value is set
higher than the HI value to indicate that a condition has become worse.) User can apply
any one condition or combination of alarm limits.
Lo and LoLo Alarms: Two low alarms, LO and LOLO, create an alarm on the screen that
appears in the audit trail if a value drops below the preset value. Since they are
independent limits, a user has two different thresholds for alarming. (Typically, the LOLO
value is set lower than the LO value to indicate that a condition has become worse. For
certain input types, (i.e., 4-20 mA), the limit may also indicate an open circuit alarm.
Kaye LabWatch® LT User’s Manual
145
Appendix D. Glossary
Example: If the Hi alarm limit is set at 20.1°C for a tag, the alarm triggers as soon as value
of the tag crosses 20.1°C.
IMPORTANT: LabWatch LT requires the tag alarm state to clear before it institutes a new
alarm delay. If the alarm delay has been set, changing the delay will not go
into effect until that alarm clears.
Open Circuit: Open Circuit means there is no sensor present or the sensor is broken.
Open/Close, On/Off and 1/0: For Digital tags (Contact switches), an open condition can
be represented by Open, On or 1 and close condition can be represented by Close, Off or
0.
RSSI: RSSI is an abbreviation of Received Signal Strength Indicator. It's a measurement
of the power present in a received radio signal. It tells the user how good or bad the RF
signal is.
RSSI >-60 Connection Strength is considered good; -70 < and <-60 as OK; and <-70 is
considered Bad
Under Range and Over Range: For 0-10v auxiliary input, any value less than 0 is Under
Range and any value greater than 10 is Over Range. Similarly for 4-20mA auxiliary input,
any value less than 4 is Under Range and any value greater than 20 is Over Range.
IMPORTANT: Open Circuit, Over Range and Under Range alarms are all reported under
Comm alarms in LabWatch LT.
