Is iC Software included when I purchase the instrument?

This depends on the instrument. Analytical instruments such as ReactIR, ReactRaman, and EasyViewer require an iC instrument software package on a PC to control the system and capture and analyze data. Reactor systems like the EasyMax or RC1mx come with a built-in touchscreen interface that can be used to control the instrument, however, iControl PC software can also be purchased for more advanced control.  

Are trial versions available for the software?

Yes, each software product comes with an automatic 30-day trial license when first installed on a new computer. If you are interested in obtaining a trial copy of one of the iC software applications, please send us a message!

What operating systems are supported by the iC Software suite?

The iC Suite runs on the Microsoft Windows operating system. Current software versions all support Windows 10. Some specific products, like iC Process and iC Data Center, can also be run on Windows Server. For specific details on what an iC application supports, please see the datasheets available on the respective product pages, or simply contact us and we can provide guidance on the best product for you.

What options are available for sharing experiment data with other software applications?

There are several ways that data collected by iC-controlled instruments can share with third-party systems. In real-time, trend values can be exchanged using the industry standard OPC UA protocol or can be exported from certain iC products into file formats such as SPC or CSV.

iC Data Center can be used to capture completed experiments in one location, prepare data in useful file formats like Excel or XML, and share data with colleagues, with a data warehouse, or with electronic lab notebook (ELN) applications.
