Chromeleon™ CDS is a fully featured data acquisition software from Thermo Fisher Scientific. The DECADE Elite/Exceed driver adds full instrument control for Electrochemical Detection (ECD) and Reactors (for EC/MS) 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.
