Descriptions Notes
e LAC/E32 16 System 2 or 4 licenses can be selected
Shimadzu LC control license 1 license only
Shimadzu LC Driver for Waters Empower First Year Support Plan Single (for 1 system) For either personal or enterprise use
Shimadzu LC Driver for Waters Empower First Year Support Plan Multi (for 4 systems) For either personal or enterprise use
  • * If using an Empower enterprise system, Shimadzu’s dedicated LAC/E32 server is required.
  • * Up to 4 Shimadzu LC/GC systems can be controlled from one computer or LAC/E32 intake server. However, if 1 or 2 PDAs are connected, this reduces the number of GCs/LCs that can be connected by 1 or 2 respectively.
  • * To control a Shimadzu LC, a Shimadzu LC control license is required in addition to a LAC/E32 system control license.

Configuration examples

Empower Personal (Stand-alone type)

Empower Personal is a stand-alone type configuration. A PC includes a database and data acquisition functions. A single PC is connected directly to LC system(s), and a maximum of 4 LC systems can be controlled.

Empower Personal, stand-alone type, database, data acquisition functions

Empower Enterprise (Network type)

Empower Enterprise is a client-server (C/S) system, which allows any client PC on the network to control any HPLC. HPLC control and data acquisition are done through an acquisition server called LAC/E32, and the acquired data are stored in the database server. Analysis instructions and LC instrument status monitoring are performed from a client PC. Each Shimadzu LC system is controlled by TCP/IP protocol from a PC. If any problem occurs in a LC system on the network, other LC systems in operation are not affected.
