tripwire™ is a simple to install device that reports every 30 minutes on critical conditions that affect the health of your magnet systems. You connect it, turn it on, and forget about it — unless something happens. Or, if desired, you can login at any time and view both current and historical conditions.


24/7, it's acting as a sentry, sending reports back to the tripwire server. If something goes wrong, you're the first to know via customizable alert parameters. The server can even let you know if your tripwire™ device is not responding.


We've installed many tripwire™ devices since it was launched in 2014. Network conditions excluded, we've had 99.9% uptime on all installations.


A single pre-emptive report from your tripwire™ device can save you thousands of dollars in cryogens and other magnet costs by notifying you not only that a problem is occuring, but potentially alerting you to a degrading situation such as a failing coldhead before it becomes a problem.

a brief history

tripwire™ was first developed in early 2014 as a joint project of Simplexable and The JDIS Group after Larry Knight of Altima Diagnostic Solutions requested a Siemens magnet monitoring solution.

A three-way collaboration between Clark Wilkins, Larry Knight and Bach Nguyen resulted in several iterations of the back-end processor as well as the client-side server. More than 20 installations were completed and tested to culminate in the v3.0 public release in September 2016.

Since then, we've maintained a steady stream of updates — including a complete redesign in v4.x as of January 2018. We now have nearly 100 units running and are growing constantly.
