Siemens Industry Automation Division, Process Analytics introduces the Gas Chromatograph (GC) Portal workstation software, an upgrade of the System Manager and EZChrom software, enabling easier monitoring and modifications to Ethernet connected Maxum GCs.
Fully compatible with existing Maxum GCs in the field (4.0 or later), the software integrates and refines System Manager and EZChrom into a single software package. The software resides on a PC workstation, and provides real-time status for Maxum GCs on the network. By clicking on the icon for the analyzer in question, alarm monitoring, management, and suppression are possible, calling up screens with the analyzer's key performance parameters displayed.
Each GC on the network is continually updated to reflect the current analysis and operating status, with analysis results, chromatograms, and alarm logs stored for reporting. Automatic data logging and reporting functions are supported in the Gas Chromatograph Portal. User interface features include changing gate times through gate markers with new settings, or adding a new peak from the pop-up menu.
