Qstart™  XML is a simple, user-friendly software program that allows field crews to quickly set up and activate ADS ECHO™, RainAlertIII, and TRTION+ monitors as well as collect and review data from these monitors. QstartXML was developed to support the new ADS TRITON+ firmware (version 6.40) as well as better support ADS’ new web-based software, FlowView PRISM™. When monitors are activated using QstartXML XML configuration files are created rather than Location Information Files (LIFs) for easy import into FlowView PRISM. In addition, QstartXML supports several new ADS TRITON+ features: a Time Zone device, an ability to deliver data at a faster interval during alarm conditions, an ability to deliver data to both FlowView PRISM/FlowView™ and up to two FTP servers, and an ability to configure Flow Loss alarms.
