ime programmed events are quite common in gas chromatographic (GC) analyses. Examples of these events are time programmed valve switching tasks prior to GC sampling and GC valve or device switching tasks during the analysis. As chromatography data systems and time tables cannot control all time programmed events, Da Vinci Laboratory Solutions (DVLS) has developed Time Scheduler (TimeS): a software solution that automates the switching of relays, valves and devices prior to, during and after the actual run and also functions as an external sequencer.
The DVLS Time Scheduler is a Windows application that controls:
The Time Scheduler includes several editors to set the configuration and events:
