A new Measurement Tool

CHROMiX has been quietly adding the ability to directly drive a number of popular spectrophotometers in the industry, originally for the Client software that works with our Maxwell database.  We will be rolling that same capability out to our new software products as well.   People have been begging us for this feature for years!   Besides the Maxwell Client, you can see this feature in Curve4 Verify - recently released.  Expect to see this even more in the future.

I have produced some videos to show how this new measurement module works.

  1. So you deliberately made it to work with Windows 7 and later?
    I sent you error message describtion and You did not reply to emails about this, I wonder why?

    Youdo know that older PC's have native COM ports? and LFP can be driven by this connection right? So it's handy to have dedicated older PC to drive this and newer USB equipment. But no you made it incompatible because of winsock?

  2. Hi Julius,

    I'm sorry to hear you are having connection problems. It sounds like you want to run one of our apps in Windows XP? Unfortunately due to multiple hardware manufacturers not supporting their drivers on XP, our development system and Microsoft themselves not supporting XP, we were forced to leave it behind.

    If it's not XP that's the problem and there is a method for us to support the connection type you're referring to, we can try to do so. Can you please submit a description via our support system (with our apps) and we'll take a look at it.
