Shimadzu's new data processor with
advanced automated validation and network capability.
The data processing functionality of the highly-acclaimed
Chromatopac line is now even more advanced. The superior C-R8A
Chromatopac Data Processor is equipped with improved automated
validation functions and network capability.
Inherits the proven Shimadzu algorithms
The numerous peak processing functions and quantitative
calculations from previous models (C-R4A, C-R5A, C-R7A) are
included in the C-R8A.
Includes automated validation functions
The hardware validation software (accessed with the
VP key) supports GLP/GMP and ISO requirements.
Supports full network capability
The C-R8A includes a high-speed RS-232C port (19,200
bps) as standard for networking through CLASS-Agent and Chromatopac
Manager software programs.
Designed for universal applications
Both novices and experts can make full use of the
C-R8A's considerate functionality.
- High performance at low cost
The C-R8A inherits proven algorithm of Shimadzu Chromatopac.
The C-R8A has a Floppy disk drive for data storage, LCD
display with back light (40 characters x 2 lines), Optical
link and RS-232C interfaces, Hardware validation software
program are standard features. Thermal parallel printer
uses conventional economical thermal chart paper or AF (Anti-Fade)
thermal paper for long time storage. The C-R8A supports
abundant quantitation calculation methods, and flexible
report format. The C-R8A has real time 2 channel digital
data processing capability. (2 channel analog data processing
is possible by adding an optional board.)
- Easy operation, Detailed instruction supplied
in a CD-ROM
The C-R8A has two menu types; for beginner and for expert.
Anyone can operate the C-R8A referring to the message appeared
in the LCD display. For the users of the C-R5A/6A, the parameters
and commands that are frequently used are assigned in dedicated
keys. Therefore training time and cost are minimized. For
the expert users, the C-R8A has Key history function and
User definable key assignment (command allocation) function.
The C-R8A comes with a basic instruction manual, a pocket
reference and a CD-ROM which contains detailed instruction
- GLP/GMP/ISO support features
To support GLP/GMP/ISO, the C-R8A includes a hardware validation
software program, VP features based on Shimadzu VP concept,
accessible by the VP key, several log functions, security,
sample index functions.
- Network capability
The C-R8A includes a high speed RS-232C port (19,200bps)
as standard equipment for networking using CLASS-Agent or
Chromatopac manager software programs.
- Dual format floppy disk drive
The C-R8A has a floppy disk drive compatible with both MS-DOS
format and C-R4A/7A format. It is possible to share the
data between PC based workstation and/or other Chromatopacs.
You can edit Basic program on a PC as a text file, it is
easy to transfer data and Basic file via a floppy disk.
- Space saving size
Comparing the C-R6A, the C-R8A is smaller but includes slots
for options. C-R8A: 340(W) x 380(D) x 150(H) mm, approx.
- Digital linkage via optical cable
The C-R8A can connect with the Shimadzu other products (e.g.
SCL-10AVP) that has optical cable communication capability
by a optical cable. In this case, simultaneous 2 channel
data processing is possible.
