Driver for Chromeleon

Chromeleon CDS driverSoftware for system control and data acquisition


Chromeleon CDS is a fully featured data acquisition software. The DECADE Elite/Exceed driver adds full instrument control for Electrochemical Detection (ECD) and Reactors (ROXY) up to 2 channels in a single time base. Supported is the DC mode with constant potential measurement for most applications, and the PULSE mode for special applications such as carbohydrates and aminoglycosides. A time table is supported for time based control of several operational parameters and triggers for external devices by switching relays. Also an external electric valve can be controlled via the Elite in case of special applications such as column switching during an analysis.


The driver has been developed with Chromeleon 7.2.9 - 7.2.10 and with DECADE Elite/Exceed firmware ≥ 1.09. It is functional for CDS versions 7.2 SR5 and up. A recent version Dialogue Elite software is required to be able to update the firmware and write the (paid) license code to the Elite. With new devices this code is factory set, in case of field upgrades the code is set by a special settings file. You should have a Chromeleon license with "class 3" device support, consult your Thermo Scientific contact for details. Contact us for part number and prices.

The Antec ECD driver will be listed in the next update of Thermo's "List of Supported Instruments" which is scheduled with the next Chromeleon update (below the 7.2.10 version in 'Downloads' is not including Antec ECD yet).
