iControl | Software for In-Situ Reaction Analysis

What is the difference between an office license and an instrument license?

An iControl single instrument license allows for the creation of new experiments and control of the instrument. An office license can be installed on a separate computer and used to review and analyze data from an experiment that has already been completed.

Can I control more than one instrument from the iControl computer?

Yes, iControl can be used to connect to and control up to four separate EasyMax, OptiMax, RX-10, or RC1mx reactor systems, however, this requires the purchase of the iControl multiple instrument control module. By default, an iControl single-instrument license only allows connection to one instrument. Adding the multiple instrument control allows four systems to be configured and simultaneously controlled from one computer.

What are the advantages of controlling my automated lab reactor with iControl versus controlling it with the touchscreen?

iControl Software is a door opener to a magnitude of applications. iControl allows seamless integration of process analytical technology (PAT) for crystallizationparticle size distribution, or fermentation. For process chemists, it expands the control capabilities for chemical synthesis, scaling up a chemical process, and is a core component to run reaction calorimetry for process safety.

What is the average iControl file size?

iControl files are generally under 20 MB each although they can be larger depending on the length of the experiment and whether advanced features like calorimetry are being used.

How can I be sure to get the latest version of iControl available?
