Setting Up the Notes Page


Sample information for each run is entered on both the Summary Page and Notes Page. The Procedure Page is used to set up the experimental test conditions.

Use the Notes Page to enter or select additional information to be stored with the selected file. The gas entries entered here are used to specify the gas and the associated flow rate for each run. These items cannot be changed once the experiment is in progress.

  1. Enter the name of the Operator conducting the thermal analysis experiment. Up to 25 characters may be entered.

  2. Enter any additional comments in the Extended Text field. This may involve information about the sample or experiment, such as sample treatment or data sampling parameters. Up to 500 alphanumeric characters may be entered (approximately 12 lines).

  3. Select the Sample gas to be used for the sample from the drop-down list, either Gas#1 or #2, and enter the corresponding Flow rate (including units). The gas entries are used to specify the gas (#1 or #2) and the associated flow rate for each run. These settings will automatically set the gas and flow rate on a run by run basis. (The scheduled run's purge settings will take effect immediately once the Apply button is clicked.) To change the gas type, access Tools/Instrument Preferences.

  4. If you want to automatically analyze the resulting data file using a macro (created with the Universal Analysis Autoanalysis software option), check the Autoanalyze box. Locate the desired macro filename using the Browse button. Enter the drive, directory, file location, and name for file.

  1. If you want to automatically have the results of the autoanalysis (checked above) sent to a remote computer, which is one  other than the controller computer attached to the instrument (also called the local computer), check the Start Remotely box. Then enter the same path and data file name chosen on the Summary Page. When the data file has been collected, Universal Analysis will automatically open and begin the autoanalysis of the file on both the local and remote computers.

  2. Click on the Analysis Macro list and select a macro from those displayed. This macro will be used to automatically analyze the data file that will result from this experiment.

NOTE: See the Autoanalysis documentation accompanying the Universal Analysis software for further information on creating macros.

  1. Click the Apply button to apply the information on this page to the current run.
