ECD control driver

  • OpenLAB™ CDS 2.3
  • Elite with up to 2 flow cells
  • Support of time table events

OpenLAB™​ CDS is a fully featured data acquisition software from Agilent. The DECADE Elite driver adds full instrument control for Electrochemical Detection (ECD) 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 carbohydrate and aminoglycosides. A timetable 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.
