Control Shimadzu GC-2010 Plus and GC-2014 Units Using Waters EmpowerTM
Shimadzu GC-2010 Plus and GC-2014 gas chromatographs can now
be controlled using Waters Empower™ chromatography data systems.
This control enables use of these compact GCs, which feature detectors
with the world’s highest sensitivity levels and deliver high-precision analysis
with excellent peak reproducibility, in an Empower™ environment.
Seamless Control of Shimadzu GC Units
Set Shimadzu GC instrument parameters via the instrument method editing window in Empower™ and save as an instrument method. Achieve seamless control of GC-2010 Plus and GC-2014 units for functions ranging from the control panel and report output to audit trails.
Ease of Use for Instrument Status Check and Methods Creation
The Shimadzu GC control panel displayed in the sample
analysis window in Empower™ includes functions to directly
control Shimadzu GC units,
such as switching the carrier gas
or detector gas, or GC system ON/OFF. In addition, it includes
such features as a monitor function that allows confirming the
respective temperatures of the sample injection port, column
oven, and detector, or the flow rate and pressure of carrier gas,
and a system check function that displays the operating status
of consumables. This helps with monitoring the instrument
operating status during analyses and with routine instrument
inspections. Furthermore, since separate instrument method
editing windows are available for each device, even first-time
users can set GC unit parameters easily.
Acquire and Manage Analytical Data Digitally
All detector signals are acquired digitally. Therefore, no SAT/INTM or other analog/digital converter is necessary. Gas pressures, column oven temperatures, and other instrument status information can be stored as channel data during analyses.
- Shimadzu GC driver software for Empower™ is compatible with Empower™2 FR3 or later versions.To install the driver in existing Empower networks, please provide the Empower™ version and other relevant information in advance.
- Only one Shimadzu GC unit can be connected using the Personal version of Empower™.
