<p>Hello,</p><p>i try to control a Beckman PA800+ with Empower2.</p><p>I use the CE Software form Waters version 1.1.5 on a stand alone LACE.</p><p>My first Problem is that my instrument method is corrupt. When i start a sample the different rinse steps will be performed, but every time the inject step wont be performed.</p><p>The second Problem is that during the seperation step the current every time is 0,000µA.

  • Hello Tobias,

    Is there any information in the Empower Message Center that is relevant to this?

    To troubleshoot the problems you experienced more information (typically the project) is needed. I recommend you contact your local Waters support group to initiate a CIT record.



  • Hello,

    i solved the problem with a service member from beckman coulter.

    The reason why it dosent work was that i used an old method, created with software version 1.1.4.

    We just write a completly new instrument method and everything works fine!

    This thread can be closed!

    Many thanks.


  • Is the Beckman CE PA800+ plugin available for Empower 3?

  • Hi Scott,

    Yes, version 1.1.5 of the Beckman driver is available and supports Windows 7 and Empower 3.

    Contact your Waters representative, as this an item that needs to be ordered.

    Best regards
