HPLC Modular System Controllers
CBM-20A or CBM-20Alite
An HPLC system controller for connecting to LC workstations through ethernet
The Shimadzu CBM-20A/CBM-20Alite system controller acts as an interface for connecting instrumentation to LC workstations or network-client computers. One CBM is a necessary component to complete a modular system. The CBM also offers the first web based browser which allows for additional management and system efficiency.
A stand-alone system controller designed for maximum flexibility. Up to twelve LC modules and two channels of analog data can be connected for acquisition.
The internal space-saving CBM-20Alite can be installed inside Prominence and Nexera pumps or autosamplers, and controls up to five LC components including the host module.
The CBM module connects via Ethernet to a laboratory computer for software or web-browser control of the LC components.
Integrated Web-Control Functions
The CBM is equipped with a web interface, which allows system control, monitoring and maintenance information to be accessed from Internet Explorer without installing additional software. It offers added security with multi-level user access options, and provides a flexible analytical environment.
From the web interface, you can:
- Monitor and adjust maintenance intervals
- Perform baseline check or system equilibration
- Real-time monitoring of current analysis only
- Check hardware performance and save time by reducing visits to the laboratory
Fully automated analysis
System startup, baseline-check functions, and auto-purge functions allows for fully automated analysis with a modular HPLC system.
- System Startup - Program a startup method to initialize the system and start data acquisition.
- Baseline-check - An automatic check of the baseline before data acquisition
- Auto-Purge - All pumps and autosamplers can be purged on command or automatically, without user intervention to open or close the drain valve.
Monitor device status at a glance
With this function, the operating status of networked devices can be checked at a glance. You can monitor:
- System Activity
- Status of individual units
- Existence of errors
- Device maintenance information
A memo function allows users to post messages regarding the status of components or to allow users sharing the system to leave messages for each other.
