Introduction

About UVProbe

Although UVProbe is a unified software package with a shared set of capabilities, it can be viewed as four programs in one, with the Spectrum module, Photometric module, Kinetics module, and Report Generator comprising the four programs. Each opens in its own window within the larger UVProbe window, and each has a unique purpose and capabilities. They also have similar, yet differing interfaces, with their own toolbars, menus, tables, graphs, and screen arrangements.

The following information guides you through the basics from the common to the unique. For a more precise explanation of the procedures, refer to UVProbe Functions on page 1-2.

Starting UVProbe

When UVProbe is started, the window is displayed in the same configuration as when the program was exited. For example, the toolbars and windows are restored to the same position; however, no data is displayed.

  • 1 Turn on the monitor, computer, and spectrophotometer.

  • 2 Select Windows Start > Programs > Shimadzu > UVProbe, or double-click the UVProbe icon on the desktop.

Double-click to start UVProbe

The Output window is dockable and can be positioned anywhere within the UVProbe workspace. It displays useful system information at the bottom of the UVProbe window and contains two tabs – Output and Instrument History.

Output displays general messages while the software is running. This is temporary

information that will be cleared the next time the system is started. Instrument History displays information related to the currently active instrument, such as initialization time, baseline information, etc. The information changes when switching between instruments to display information specific to the currently active instrument.

Neither Output nor Instrument History information can be printed or saved.

Instrument Bar

The Instrument bar is a dockable toolbar that can be positioned anywhere within the UVProbe workspace. It displays a button for each available instrument. To switch between the instruments, click the desired instrument.

Photometer Status Bar

The Photometer Status bar is a dockable status and control bar that can be positioned anywhere within the UVProbe workspace. Using the Photometer Status bar, any number of machine manipulation functions can be performed.

Introduction

System Administration

This section explains basic system administration. When security is disabled, and will not be used, skip to Communicating with the Spectrophotometer on page 1-15. Basically, security enables a system administrator to determine the access privileges of everyone authorized to use the system. There are three procedures to master: adding groups, assigning group privileges, and adding users.

When UVProbe is first installed, there are only four groups Administrator,Developer,Operator and Guest. The Administrator group controls all access privileges, i.e., when a user is added to this group, that user receives unrestricted access to UVProbe.

To effectively control system access, create groups for each level of access that is to be granted, then assign users to the appropriate groups. For example, a group can be restricted from using the Peak Area table or the Report Generator. Groups cannot be restricted from individual modules.

Use security to control access to the system, track users, and the operations that are performed by individual users. When security is enabled, the User Name is automatically entered into the analyst field that is saved with the data (in the New Data Set Information dialog box). View user and operation information on the Instrument History tab in the Output window, or in the File Properties dialog box History tab. In the Report Generator, the logged-in user can be printed on the report.

Click Security in the Edit menu to display the Administrative dialog box. System control is performed using this dialog box.

The tabs (pages) other than Change Password tab are available for the users registered in the Administrator group.

Assign user’s rights

For convenience and ease of administration,every user must belong to a group. Group users carefully to control their rights within the system. The following rules apply to users and groups.

A group is a collection of users.

Each user must belong to a group,and cannot belong to more than one group.

Groups have rights.

All members of a group acquire the rights of the group.

Introduction

Rights

The rights that can limit the operation are divided in 18 components. The rights contained in each components and the ones already made available in UVProbe are described as follows:
