ER180F  Flow Analysis System

ER180F Flow Analysis System
ER180F Flow Analysis System
  • Turns a PC into a FIA data workstation
  • Suitable for use with most detectors
Unit Price: $ (USD) 2195.00


The Flow Analysis System is used for the detection, display and analysis of peaks from Flow Injection Analysis (FIA) and similar experiments. It comprises a ER180 or ER181 hardware unit, Chart software, FIA Chart extension and Event Manager Chart extension.

The ER180F has two input channels, while the ER181F has one input channel.

  • Turns a PC into a FIA data workstation
  • No programming required - just plug and play
  • Collect signals from one (ER181F) or two (ER180F) detectors
  • Independently selectable input gain ranges
  • Automatic peak detection and calibration
  • TTL or contact closure for triggering autosamplers etc.
  • USB compliant

Take advantage of Chart's extensive analysis features and user friendly interface. The Flow Analysis System is for use with Windows XP or later.

The ER18x unit can be used with different eDAQ software packages for different applications. It can be used with Chart software for general purpose data recording, PowerChrom software for recording chromatography data (GC, HPLC, IC, CE etc) and with Chart software plus FIA extension for recording flow injection analysis data.

Included Chart Extensions

The FIA Chart extension enables Chart to automatically detect and calculate the area and height of FIA peaks. Detected peaks are easily calibrated and the results generated displayed in user configurable peak reports. It is also possible to copy and paste results into other applications for further analysis.

The Event Manager Chart extension enables external equipment, such as pumps and autosamplers, to be switched on and off via the unit's digital outputs.

Analog Signal Input

The ER18x unit is suitable for use with most detectors used in FIA experiments.

Peak Assignment

Users can assign a peak as either 'Calibration', 'Sample' or 'Excluded' from calculations. Calibration amounts are entered into a peak table, and the mean and standard deviation of repeats are automatically calculated. Sample amounts are calculated from the calibration data and displayed in the peak table.

Calibration Response Functions

Calibration curves can be fitted with linear, linear through origin, cubic, quadratic, or even point-to-point (linear interpolation) response functions.

Manual Peak Editing

Start and end-points of detected peaks can also be manually adjusted. Peaks can also be added or deleted.
