Tip #241: Available Options on the Walk-Up Interface in Empower

Welcome back to Get Empowered! In the last Empower tip-of-the-week blog for Empower Chromatography Data System, we continued our series on Walk-Up Interface in Empower and learned how to email results (Tip #240).

In this week’s tip, we will conclude this series and review the options available when configuring the Walk-Up Interface. These options allow the selection of default settings to suit the needs of the laboratory (or any environment) using this interface.

Let’s get started.

Step 1

From the ‘View’ menu there are a variety of dropdown selections (figure 1).

  • Systems: Allows the selection of a different system for data acquisition
  • Instrument Status: Displays the System Status of the currently selected system
  • Real Time Plot: Displays the Run Samples window (there is a user privilege associated with this selection)
  • Message Center: Opens the Message Center
  • Options: Equivalent to clicking Options button located next to the Run Time
  • Properties: Discussed in Steps 2 thru 7.

 Let’s look at the additional options and default settings accessible by selecting Properties:

Step 2

Passwords: Add password protection to the Properties so that users cannot change the defaults (figure 2).
