Controller and Software

Extrel offers a full System Controller, as well as a Scan Controller, both of which operate using Extrel’s powerful Merlin Automation™ Data System Software. Both controllers are modular and allow users to modify or add components as needs grow and change. 

The Merlin Automation Command System Scan Controller is a scan and resolution controller that can be upgraded with control and power modules to control additional mass spectrometer components.

The Merlin Automation Data System Software is a powerful analytical software package that operates Extrel’s Research Command System, as well as Extrel’s MAX300-LG™ Laboratory Gas Analyzer. This software is ideal for understanding applications with a number of unknown components, or for applications that are constantly changing.

The Merlin Automation Data System Software is a powerful analytical software package that operates Extrel’s Research Command System, as well as Extrel’s MAX300-LG™ Laboratory Gas Analyzer. This software is ideal for understanding applications with a number of unknown components, or for applications that are constantly changing. It allows:

  • Control of other components of an application using analog and digital inputs and outputs
  • External data, such as process temperature and pressure, to be imported into the software and synchronized with the mass data
  • Full control of all mass spectrometer components to optimize a system for each application
  • Macro-driven software which the user can modify
  • Mass data to be displayed in histogram, intensity, TIC or tabular forms
  • Post acquisition data manipulation capabilities to be displayed in a number of formats with presentation quality

The Questor 5 Process Analysis Software is our seventh generation process software and provides secure access to your system and data. Features include:

  • Automated operation, easy set-up
  • Built-in security and reporting allowing users to meet government requirements for electronic records, such as those defined in 21 C.F.R. §11
  • Direct connection from a workstation or from a plant network via a standard Ethernet or equivalent link
  • Software which provides multi-level security for different levels of access, for various types of users
  • Software which displays data in tabular and trend formats
  • The display of component concentrations, intensities and derived values
  • Web-based user interface, using Internet Explorer® 5.0 internet browser or higher, which gives users access to all analyzer operations and data in a familiar web page format

 The Merlin Automation Command System is a full quadrupole mass spectrometer control system that includes the following features:
  • Ion Optics Outputs
  • 19” (48.26 cm) Rack Mountable
  • Expandable for MS/MS Operation
  • Accepts 110/220 V, 50/60 Hz power
  • Electron Multiplier Detector Power Supply
  • Analog and/or Pulse Counting Preamplifier
  • Control Modules for Quadrupole Operation
  • Power Supplies needed to Power Filaments
  • Modular design that allows the addition of power supplies, control modules or specialized software modules, as best suits the application
