Connect Features

PASS Pre-Paid Hours

Prepaid hours can be purchased to make sure you will receive technical support when you need it the most. Prepaid hours are applicable to any line in your plant and can be used for any technical phone support during normal business hours (8:30-5:00 CST). There is no expiration date for prepaid hours so they can transfer from year to year (no refunds available for hours not used during a calendar year). There are no discounts provided with the purchase of prepaid hours.


Prepaid hours can be purchased in advance or at the time of service.

Unattended Monitoring


Unattended monitoring is a useful tool for measuring long term system performance, detecting intermittent failures, and monitoring operational procedures for each shift. Unattended monitoring can be connected either through the modem or internet. Unattended monitoring is not part of Pass Connect but can be ordered separately. Some of the features include:



After monitoring is completed, a summary report will be provided along with a .csv file that can be imported into an excel file and further analyzed.
