Product Overview

Quantum Northwest provides three Windows-based software packages. Our main program is T-App, a program that may be used for remote computer control of any of the temperature controllers that we manufacture. Connected via a USB, T-App issues commands to the controller and reads responses, displaying time-dependent data on the computer screen. A special version of T-App, called Q-Blue is provided free of charge with our qpod 2e product line. A third version of T-App, called T-App(S) is written specifically to control the Shimadzu UV-1800 UV/Vis/NIR Spectrophotometer. Any of these programs has the following capabilities:

Set a target temperature and start temperature control. Watch whether the cuvette holder temperature is seeking or holding.

Turn magnetic stirring on or off, or for the New Generation TC 1, set any desired stirring speed.

Plot the temperature of the single cuvette holder (or both temperatures of a dual cuvette holder), as well as the temperature of the sample as a function of time. If desired, save plots for later use.

Save temperature time course data for later use in a spreadsheet.

Use the tools menu to control temperature ramping by entering rate of change and final temperature.

Load a script of simple text commands to control complex experiments


We also offer an ADL program for working with Cary products that operate under Agilent’s WinUV.
