New accessories for Clarity: MultiCOM and OPT-USB

Many labs use several instruments with various interfaces for direct control and data acquisition. What can you do if your PC provides only one or none of these interfaces? DataApex provides a line of hardware accessories that can be used standalone or together with Clarity chromatography software. Among the most popular gadgets are MultiCOM and OPT-USB.

The MultiCOM connects to USB and extends the PC by 6 Com ports (RS232). Its simple and handy design includes metallic body for high durability, signal LEDs indicating current state of the communication on each port and label areas for notes (e.g. COM number or device name).

The OPT-USB adapter also connected to USB is primarily intended for Shimadzu instruments. In the PC it actually creates a virtual COM port using its SW driver.
