Shimadzu HS-20 Driver for Chromeleon™

Control HS-20 Headspace Sampler Using Chromeleon 6.8 / 7.2

HS-20 Driver

Control Shimadzu GC and HS-20

A new driver enables control of the HS-20 headspace sampler with Thermo Scientific Dionex Chromeleon Chromatography Data System (CDS) Software. This means Shimadzu's GC-2010 Plus, GC-2014 and HS-20 instrument parameters can be set seamlessly via Chromeleon.
The control panel / ePanel shown in Chromeleon provides functions for the direct control of Shimadzu GC and HS-20. It is also equipped with monitoring functions to allow system operating status to be assessed at a glance as well as a system check function for monitoring the usage of consumables by various instruments. As a result, the software can be used for daily inspections of instruments prior to an analysis, and as a means of monitoring the operating status during analyses. Also, Shimadzu instrument control parameters are set through the program file editor / method editor embedded in Chromeleon. These parameters are stored and handled as standard Chromeleon program method files.
