Clarity has a hierarchic structure. Upon clicking the Clarity icon, the main Clarity window will be displayed with names of the configured Instruments.

After clicking on the chromatograph picture or the Login button you will be prompted to enter your User Name, proceed by pressing the OK button. The dialog about Method Setup adaptation may be displayed. Press Yes and adapt the Method in the Method Setup dialog. In case you are using Demo1, just click on the OK. Alternatively you can press Help to learn more about method adaptation. Now the Instrument window will be displayed.

Note:

The Clarity station works with so-called Instruments. All detectors connected to the same Instrument share a common time base.

Clarity Instrument windows

The main Clarity window is designed to configure the chromatography station, select access rights and basic directories for saving data.

The Instrument window is used for acquisition and processing of data using the connected chromatograph. Up to four independent Instrument windows can be displayed. As you can see from Fig " Clarity Instrument windows", Instrument 1 and Instrument 2 are opened, hence respective instrument windows are displayed.

Each Instrument window contains information table , status line and buttons for Method Setup, Single Analysis, Sequence, Device Monitor, Data Acquisition, Chromatogram and Calibration. Instruments are distinguished by the color of the Instrument window header and by instrument name which is displayed in the header of each Instrument window. The name in the header of the Instrument window is identical to the name displayed above the corresponding chromatograph in the main Clarity window.

All relevant dialogs for performing actions in the Instrument window can be easily accessed using appropriate commands from the menu or by clicking on their icons.
