Q: Can more than one PQDMS be connected to an instrument and poll (download) data simultaneously?



A: If the device supported this functionality, it should be feasible. Most devices only support one connection at a time, though. Also, you would want to ensure that the two PQDMSs were on two different systems. Otherwise, you could be trying to load the same data at the same time into the database, and that could be an issue.
