About H2NS Environmental
H2NS Environmental Inc was formed in
1994. The founders of H2NS are the
previous founders of Odessa Engineering.
Early on, H2NS Inc.
was contacted by many Odessa Engineering clients in order
to obtain support for their Odessa Hardware and software.
Through word of
mouth we built a reputation of rapid response with reasonable
rates and soon
had a respectable customer base. We performed system expansion
upgrades on existing Odessa systems. The original designers
of the Odessa data logger, the DSM series, set out on a
quest to design and produce a data acquisition unit capable
to meet today’s
challenges and flexible enough to meet the unknown after

for direct download
into a database. However, there was one drawback. All manufacturers
different protocols, hence the digital data download could
not be automated.
H2NS Inc. recognized this sign of the future and began
designing a data
acquisition device with the capability of communicating with
an array of
manufacturers instrumentation and combining that data into
a common database.
This concept also allowed operators, at a remote location,
to communicate with
an individual instrument to perform diagnostics and routine “state-of-health
checks. The capability to perform this type of testing led

is that it will communicate
with Odessa data loggers. this provides a cost savings
to clients because the
data acquisition units do not need to be replaced. The
DSM is not leap year

when and if the DSM
becomes insupportable, it can be replaced by the CPP-4794.
