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.
