Resolving Graphing Issues with Internet Explorer 8 with Accsense Systems

Using Accsense Continual Monitoring Systems

CHESTERLAND OH — Microsoft has altered how Internet Explorer renders some flash content in Internet Explorer 8 and above in Windows Vista, 7, and 8. This can cause issues in the Accsense monitoring system web interface when trying to load historical graphs of users' data. This problem manifests as a constant 'loading' message instead of the graph appearing. However, there are a few quick workarounds to remove the problem entirely. CAS DataLoggers Applications Specialists take you through it in this brief how-to.

To resolve the issue, users just have to place Internet Explorer in compatibility mode. There are 2 quick ways to do this. The first is a temporary fix: on the right-hand side of the address bar, you will see an icon that looks like a torn sheet of paper.

Simply click on this symbol in the graph window, and it will reload in compatibility mode and show the graph properly.

For a permanent fix, just access the drop-down menus for Internet Explorer. To do this, simply press the [ALT] key on the keyboard, and you'll see a series of drop-down menus appear just below the address bar (File, Edit, View, Tools, etc.). Click on the Tools menu. You'll see the following menu:

Choose Compatibility View Settings, and then click the check box next to 'Display all websites in compatibility view', then click 'Close'. This will permanently fix the graphing issues.

Our wireless Accsense data loggers feature extensive functionality to send all recorded temperature data online for convenient storage and analysis. Much more accurate than electric thermometers, Accsense monitoring systems are more dependable and also aid with regulatory documentation. All an Accsense setup needs is an RJ45 Ethernet connection with open internet access to start taking readings, removing the need for troublesome installation and wiring.

Additionally, the Accsense system simplifies installation and often bypasses the need for IT involvement or the costly training programs that users expected from competing products. Running on battery or AC power, these temperature data loggers bridge the connection between users' critical data and the Internet. Our wireless gateway features built-in 10/100BaseT Ethernet to support as many as 16 temperature sensor pods, with a wireless range of 250 feet unobstructed and 90 feet indoors. A 1900-point sample buffer automatically backs up data in case of emergencies, and each pod's memory can store up to 32,000 samples with a user-settable sampling frequency anywhere from every 30 seconds to every 24 hrs.
