Installation and Qualification

These tutorial movies show the installation and qualification of a DECADE Elite electrochemical detector and flow cell. The procedure is also described in the manuals in the download section for DECADE Elite, SenCell and FlexCell. Preparation of a flow cell before use is on another page.

STEP 1. Unpacking and powering up. Set the temperature to stabilize in preparation of the OQ test


STEP 2. Install the dummy cell and let it stabilize in preparation of the OQ test. In total, about one hour stabilization time is needed before starting the OQ (step5).
STEP 3. Connect the cables for data acquisition and autozero. This example shows a special Shimadzu AD cable.
Skip this step: in case Clarity CDS  or another CDS with Antec ECD control driver is used.
STEP 4A. Install Dialogue Elite software in preparation of the OQ test.
STEP 4B Clarity installation 

STEP 4C. Install PCI-serial card drivers

In case the PC is equipped with Antec's PCI - serial card, it is now time to install the drivers. Click here to download the zip file and install the drivers.

STEP 5. Perform the OQ test – Part 1: Dummy cell noise test
STEP 6. Perform the OQ test – Part 2: Analogue output test

STEP 7. Familiarize an end-user with the instrument and explain how to do maintenance and troubleshooting. A set of useful videos for this purpose can be found here.

STEP 8. Complete and sign the IQOQ document after finishing.
